I have 6 children, 21 grandchildren and a great husband who supports all my family history endeavors. My husband and I now live in Utah. We have spent several of our anniversaries and birthdays at the Family History Library in Salt Lake City. I have traveled to England and Spain in search of ancestors researching in several different archives. I thoroughly love archival research where you get to see the original documents. I love to gather documents and learn about each person.
