Bio Photo Hi all!

I grew up in Eden, NC (GO PANTHERS!) and am now a resident of Suffolk, VA. I became interested in genealogy in 2007 after I discovered a box of old family photos. My late grandparents had labeled some of the pictures, but my father had no idea who the other people were. So it became my mission to put names with the faces and to dig up whatever information I could find about their pasts.

Since then, I've been obsessed with genealogy. Every antique shop I visit, I have to search through old photos in hopes of finding a familiar face...every cemetery I pass, I feel the need to stop and pay my respects to all the interments. (Thank God, I have an understanding wife.)

Family surnames I'm currently researching are Allen, Francis, Fulcher, Harvey, Hodges, Kapp/Kapps/Capps, Moses, Ogburn, Parrish, Putnam, Reynolds, Spencer, Talbott/Tolbert, and Wimbish/Wimbush (mostly all of them spent some time in Henry, Pittsylvania, and Patrick counties, VA, and/or Forsyth and Rockingham counties, NC).
