The theme this week is to write about an ancestor closest to your birthday. I am simultaneously participating in the Genealogy Do-Over. Week #2 of the Do-Over had us "interview" ourselves and then write a biography. I decided to combine the two tasks and write about MYSELF.
WARNING: THIS IS A LONG POST. I won't be offended if you decide not to read it :-)
I could have written "just the facts, Ma'am" but - that's not my style. If I was going to write about myself, I wanted the reader to learn who I am, what I am about. After all, that's what I aspire to in my family history research. I want to "know" the person and a listing of vital statistics just doesn't cut it.
So - if you have the time - make yourself a cup of tea or coffee...pour yourself a beer or a glass of wine. Sit down and find out who I am.
Oh - and there aren't any pictures - sorry - I figured the post was long enough!!
