"I dabble in genealogy because I want to know who my ancestors were."

I use the word "dabble" because I have looked into it since 2011 and still feel so new at what is available to us in these modern times with DNA and things such as that. I as many others are curious about my ancestors - who were they, what were they like, what experiences did they live through? I enjoy history, that is part of the reason I enjoy genealogy. My desire to solve mysteries is a huge part of my passion for genealogy. I also do genealogy because I want my children and grandchildren to know and recognize the individuals over the centuries whose lives helped make us who we are today.

Genealogy isn't a task well suited for those who require instant gratification. It's a long-term process and to those who are not like-minded, it seems an incomprehensible pursuit. I would love to thank Ms. Jenny Pakdaman for starting me on this path when she graciously sent me a copy of her GEDCOM file which included years of her own research. To her, I will always be indebted.

However, it takes a family to keep items updated in our file. I still see areas that are not updated. Births have occurred; tiny humans have been born. Some family members have moved on into eternity. So, take a minute to update your piece of the pie. Don't be scared. You cannot mess it up, I have to finalize it. Help make this site the best it can be!

Love the family,
Jay Taylor
