Testimonial from Linda Q....
For years I had been curious about my ancestors but didn't know how to get
started, so nothing happened. Two years ago the SaddleBrooke Genealogy Club
offered genealogy classes for beginners for the first time. Wow! What a kick start to
a fascinating journey of knowledge. I jumped in with both feet. I poured over
census records by the hour. I never knew that I could have so much fun on the
computer or in a library, or that so many people are willing to help me.
I discovered that there are 5 generations of direct ancestors buried within 10 miles
of where I grew up. I found an ancestor who was hung during the Salem witch trials.
I discovered that my husband and I are 9th cousins. I found that my ethnic mix was
not what I had assumed. I have met several distant cousins, both online and in
person, who are helping with my search. A fourth cousin that I met in Canada last
year is going to Germany this summer to track down more of “our” people.
In a nutshell, I have found genealogy to be a very satisfying and intellectually
stimulating hobby. And I am learning tons about history and geography along the
way, sparking my brain cells. Mostly it is the fun of the hunt, and learning more
about who I am. The search goes on.
