I began researching my family tree about twenty years ago and was immediately hooked on genealogy.  I love adding new cousins to my tree, so if you see a connection, please e-mail.  If not, and you need professional research done in the Northern Kentucky/Greater Cincinnati, Ohio area, click on my “Professional Services” leaf.

This site first appeared on the Internet in July, 2005 and will always be a “work-in-progress”.  Photos from a  trip to my ancestral villages in France and Germany have been added.  Most recently,  my family has grown to include a new son-in-law & there are a few wedding photos tucked into the leaves of the “my family tree” section.    

Enjoy “leafing” through my site, and good luck with your own research!
