“Genealogy is a lot more than just names, dates and places. It’s the study of individuals who raised the individuals who raised us. In essence, revealing an aspect of ourselves that may otherwise not be known. Genealogy is finding links between people and places and answering the “why” questions that follow those links, thus unveiling the secrets our ancestors, intentionally or not, covered up.”  -The Genealogy Nerd

I strive to find those secrets, those things that have been hidden for years. This blog is a collection of secrets and interesting things I have found from years past. A lot of my posts talk about my ancestors, interesting newspaper clippings, strange ads, or links to odd/scary times in history. I hope by stumbling here you find what you’re looking for. Otherwise, you may contact me.
