About

Hello, my name is Danni and I'm a genealogy addict and history buff.

My interest in genealogy was cultivated from an early age.  My maternal grandparents both were regular participants in transcription through their church and when I stayed with them during summer breaks from school I would end up at the Family History Center with them.  It was inevitable that I would be bitten by the genea-bug as well.  Add to that some great family vacations with said grandparents where we would stop at many historic places and I was doomed from the beginning.  Not that I ever really cared that I was doomed.  I always seemed to love kicking around historic sites, sitting in libraries, learning about things from the past and hearing family stories.  Some of my favorite movies from when I was a child were movies that my grandparents had taken of their kids growing up.

Yep, I was doomed from birth.

I took a break from the genealogy hunt while I went to school, had a child and got married by I was recently bitten by the genea-bug again and jumped into the search head first.  I stumbled upon some great genealogy blogs, which led me to some great webinars and classes and eventually I started tossing around the idea of starting to blog about my genealogical journey.  I chewed on that idea for awhile and, at the encouragement of my wonderful husband (also a Danny) and a fantastic group of wild and crazy women (you 'Bugs know who you are!), this blog is what emerged from that idea.

My family is one of a kind and I'm truly blessed to have them.  I'm married to a wonderfully patient husband and have one son who is unbelievably unique in his own right.  I can't imagine what my life would be without them.  Also part of my family are the furbabies who share a home with us.  I have two Siberian Huskies: Blackjack Ketchum and Maverick, and three crazy, formerly feral cats: Lizzie Borden, Mata Hari, and Rob Roy "Red" McGregor.

Thanks so much for stopping by.  Take some time, look around and let me know if I can help you out.  If you suspect we might be related, what are you waiting for?!  Contact me already!  Constructive comments are always appreciated.
