I am addicted to genealogy. I love learning about my past family and collecting information, stories and photos. I also love taking photos. I am always with my camera. I ran into FAG by accident doing some genealogy and got hooked on FAG too. It is a great web site and also an important one. Please let me help you in any way that I can by assisting you in getting photos and information for the people that you are searching or connected to in someway. We all help each other on this site. It is a great thing to work at. I also love searching cemeteries. I have always found them interesting. Happy searching!!|
