What I'm Searching and How I'm Doing It

Hello world!

My genealogy search started with me as an adoptee looking for my birth family. I wanted medical information at first, and as I found more and more information about my birth family, I started wanting to get to know them and their story as well. I've been fortunate in that one side welcomed me whole-heartedly and gave me a lot of photos and information and love. One family member sent a huge family tree on paper and another has one online that I'm getting info from as well. The other side took a little more warming up, but I have finally gotten some family history and photos from that side as well. I took a DNA test through and that has provided some interesting information, too.

BUT...I was raised by a wonderful family...and I love those people and I know all their stories and I'm listed in their family trees, so I am also researching them and adding to their family tree histories and knowledge.

I am also looking into my husband's family genealogy. My mother-in-law set me down the path and other family members had already stated family trees that had a lot of information I needed.

So, you can find my combined family trees on Ancestry, Wikitree, and MyHeritage. I also have a profile at Gedmatch, but am not linking it for now because my gedcom file upload got very weird and I'd like to fix it before sending people that way.
