Always interested in history; especially my own family history/genealogy, I began tracing my family tree in 1980 as a middle school social studies project. My research continued on and off until 1989 when I was bitten by the genealogy bug again and worked on the tree and until I returned to night school in 1996. Genealogy for me completely ended because of work and college until I was bitten again in 2011 and I have been diligently working on my tree ever since.
Genealogical associations that I belong to include;
Capital District Genealogical Society
National Genealogical Society
New England Historic Genealogical Society
New York Genealogical & Biographical Society
Troy Irish Genealogy Society
At some point I intend to work towards becoming a certified genealogist (CG).
Other historical interests include graveyard conservation and rehab; local and New York State history; and old homes/architecture.

Not a prayer, nor a poem, just an ideology
When my time has come
and my earthly adventures end.
On my next journey
hopefully my ancestors
will be holding the door open with
cold bier in hand and say,
Welcome, we've been waiting for you.
