Hi, I'm in Cowtown, otherwise known as
Fort Worth, TX
, "Where the West Begins!" born and reared here.
I like reading, gardening, scrapbooks, cross-stitch, arts & crafts and sewing
for my five granddaughters. But most of all I'm a bonafide genealogy nut, if you
ask my family, they will all agree.
working on my various family trees since 1987 after my mother's cousin, Aline Christal, brought by a copy of the Christal
Family Tree that she had done. I was amazed at all she had accomplished, going
back to the 1700s. A few of the newer generations, including me, and later
generations needed to be added and I appointed myself to collect the data.
By the time I had contacted all of my aunts, uncles, & cousins I had enough to
fill a book myself. This lead to a never-ending quest for more, more, more!
Once I had a good amount of Christal information I needed to do the Cleere,
Thatcher, and so on. I have become completely wrapped up in the
thrill of the chase.
to my husband, Don, for letting me use "his" computer for so long a time (he
finally built one for my very own), I have been able to organize my various
families. First with Family Ties (DOS) then onto Family Tree Maker
(DOS). When Don and I progressed to Windows format, I later got the
Windows 3.0 version of FTM, then many updates. Now with the CD format and more
updates, I'm finally up-to-date with the latest version--2014. Of course, there
will be more updates and I will once again get "behind". Now that I've gotten some info on Don's lines, he's a
little more interested. Matter of fact, he has even helped me go cemetery
hunting on a few occasions.
years I have found many "new" relatives and distant relatives who have been
working on various branches of the ol' tree, we've been able to accomplish a lot
and I feel I have found some really good friends.
Here's a few
& four of the our five grandkids:
Acacia, Alyssa, Brianna, and Tatem.
Alexis wasn't able to join us that day.
