Welcome to my personal genealogy blog.

I have been researching my family history for the past 20 years. At first I was unsure how to get started and in the process missed the opportunity to ask questions of grandparents that died before I figured out what I was doing. This blog follows my genealogy trail and I hope helps gives my readers ideas on how to solve some of their own brick walls. It has been a fascinating ride for me. Some things I have discovered and some things have discovered me. Because of the blog I have been able to break through walls with information given to me by some of its readers.

So grab a cup of your favorite morning beverage and ride along while I stumble and bump, meander and roam my way along my genealogy trail. I promise, I will tell you all about it.

    Hello. I bookmarked your site a few years ago (and just rediscovered that bookmark) when I found, to my surpise, a picture of Tamar Orlton, who appears at the top of my family tree. I also have Kilgores in that tree. This leads me to believe that we may be related. The family tree information that I have was researched by other family members, but I would like to take it back further than Tamar. I would like to take it back to England or Ireland, where I believe the family may have originated. Can you give me any information, or point me in the right direction?
