How I Got Started When I was nineteen years old, my Uncle Bob gave me a cherished gift.... three books written by my grandfather. One was a journal he kept in his elder years, reflecting back on his life in the quiet early morning hours. The second was a story about the adventures of Jeremiah Muldoon,one of the 'little people'. We would call them leprechauns. And the third, a small book with his genealogical research notes. I had never met my grandfather when he was alive. My imagination was ignited. There was no looking back. Well that was a long time ago, and my journey down the track of genealogical investigations has led me to one unfolding story after another. History never meant much to me before. It was just a bunch of facts and numbers to memorize. But as soon as I could associate real people with the events, my own people, history came alive and the adventures began. I have been doing genealogical research for over eight years now. I have mastered the investigative approaches, assembled a toolbox of problem solving methods and studied the correct way to verify information, write citations and craft reports. The technical side comes easy to me as my previous training in the engineering sciences come naturally into play. But there is only one reason I still love to research genealogy to this day, and that is, the stories, your stories. I live and breath for these stories.
