For as long as I can remember, I knew I was adopted.  It wasn’t, however, until my teen years that my desire to know my ancestry really became an obsession.  It led me to the field of genealogy which I’ve become fascinated by.

Most adoptees will understand the almost instinctual compulsion to create familial foundations under my feet.  When you grow up not knowing anything about your parents, their parents, etc, it often leaves you feeling a little lost.

My short-term goal is to complete both the Genealogical Essentials and Online Genealogical Research programs at Boston University.   I also want to join both the National Genealogical Society and the Association of Professional Genealogists Membership.  The hope is to eventually become both a certified and accredited genealogist.
