Welcome to my personal history blog about real people and events.

If you have a passion for genealogy, local history, research, or a love of non-fiction stories, you have come to the right place.

My interest in genealogy started when I was young, listening to the stories my grandmother shared with me.  As I got older, I started tracing my own family history, and it was here I developed a keen sense for research.  Working in the law as a Paralegal and Law Librarian for the past 20 years helped me perfect my research skills and explore and expand my knowledge of genealogical material.  Today my focus is on researching and writing about people who have been lost to history and sharing their stories.  Being a native of Port Huron, Michigan, my focus has been on certain individuals I find unique to the history of St. Clair County, Michigan.

If you like what you read here, please subscribe to my blog and follow me on my adventure.  If you have a story you would like me to look into, share on my blog, or you need help with a road block in your genealogical research, please contact me.   I am always up for tackling the challenges and sharing the remarkable and inspirational stories discovered through tapping roots.
