- I have lived in the same suburb my entire life thus far, except for one year when I lived in Virginia when I was a baby.
- I am double jointed. I betcha didn't know that did ya? I get a lot of requests from the kids at work to show my double jointed fingers.
- I have always loved cemeteries. Even before I knew genealogy existed.
- When I was a kid, I wanted to be a teacher. I studied Education for the first 2 years at Uni. It was towards the end of the second year, and just after I caught the genealogy bug that I realized I was not enjoying it and wanted to do something else. That something else turned into Criminology and it was one of the best decisions of my life.
- I have always been a shy and quiet person, so making YouTube videos and participating in Google Hangouts is a very big step for me.
- I am 23 and still don't have my drivers license. I got my Learners at the end of 2007 for ID purposes, but never actually wanted to drive until last year. Currently I have done 75 hours of driving out of the required 100.
- I absolutely love reading. I fall in love with books and stories so easily. I can stay up reading for hours. I buy books a lot quicker than I can read them. My To Read shelf is overflowing and I'm now making stacks on the floor. I don't even have room for books that I have read anymore.

and creative YouTube videos and has an epic love for gifs like I do.

world of the NextGen Genealogy Network. I love reading her blog – her recent
post on collaborative genealogy was really neat! Elyse speaks at a lot of
genealogy seminars and events and is a big supporter of engaging the next
- A. Warde & Co. by Ameya Warde. Ameya and I kind of stumbled upon each other late last year. She’s only
been blogging for a year, but I’m always intrigued by anything that she has to
say. She’s also done a YouTube video too! I’d love to do a genealogy
collaboration video one day with Ameya, Heather & Elyse. Now wouldn’t that
be hella awesome?!
- Ruths Ancestors by Ruth Hogan, another young genealogist. Can you sense a theme here? Ruth is an avid blogger who is also following The Book of Me, Written by You prompts.
- Ancestral Breezes by Jen Baldwin. She runs #genchat and Conference Keeper and she is awesome. Need I say more?
- Confuse The Dead by Laurie Desmarais. Laurie has recently been blogging about her Mastering Genealogical Proof Class. Plus she is a rad chick!
- Your Roots Are Showing Dearie by Liam Hobbes. He’s the barkeep during #genchat and his blog makes me giggle with delight! You just need to read it okay.
|A little something for everyone! ^_^|
