My name is Christine and I am not a proper genealogist or historian. (As will be obvious, if you read the posts. And yes, “improper” would be a more appropriate term for me.) I think of myself as basically a Nosy Parker for the past, insatiably curious and very very prying. I am an avid hobbyist and I love finding stories from the past and saving them for future perusal. Some of these stories are from my ancestors, some are from their close relations, and some are from people I wish were my ancestors because their tales are so fabulous. I’ll try to make clear which is which, because history is confusing enough without help.
I hope you enjoy them as much as I’ve enjoyed finding them.
