My name is Kathy Lynch, I’m a wife to my husband Wayne, a mother to my four boys Ryan, Cody, Brett and Damon, and I love doing genealogy. I believe genealogy first touched my life when I was a young girl. My grandmother was an expert in genealogy research. I remember going to the genealogy library in Fresno, CA with her while she tirelessly searched through reels of microfilm. Whether I realized it or not, she taught me how important our ancestors should be to us, and how important it is to prove our connection to them through proper documentation.
In the past, I had dabbled with genealogy, but I was pretty busy raising a house full of boys. Now that they are older I’ve been able to dedicate more of my time. Just over three years ago I dove head first into researching when my sister suggested we sign up for Ancestry.com’s free trial to see what we could find. We were so excited about all the information we found, we could hardly sleep. It had been a really long time since I got that excited over something, and I was so amazed at all the information we could find while at home. Since then I have spent hundreds of hours doing research and finding family connections all over the world.
My excitement has inspired me to help other people see the importance of finding their ancestors. I have found that many people just don’t know where to start…so they don’t. I’ve created this website to make things simple, and as a resource for the beginner and anyone looking to improve their research skills.
Technology is wonderful, and we couldn’t be more blessed to do research in this day and age. I look forward to your comments as I embark on this journey.
Let’s learn it, link it, and love it together.
