[Tap, tap] Is this thing on?

Hello, and welcome to my new corner of cyberspace. I know you’re asking:
Why Ancestor Roundup?”

Allow me to elaborate. When not used in a strictly Western sense, a roundup is defined as a gathering in of scattered persons or things, or a summary of information. Ancestors are those people from whom you descend, people directly related by blood. Without them, you wouldn’t be here.

So, Ancestor Roundup is the gathering in of my ancestors, and a summary of information about them. I want to tell their stories, and share the information I’ve collected in more than twenty-plus years of active genealogical research. While doing so, I hope to give interested readers a glimpse of my research process. I rely heavily on technology when I research and organize my findings, so I expect there will be a fair amount of discussion of technology as it relates to genealogy on this blog as well.

If you discover that we’re related and have information to add to the conversation or copies of original documents or photographs you’d be willing to share, please don’t hesitate to contact me, either by responding to a comment, or by filling out the contact form on my About page.

Thanks for stopping by. I hope you find something of value here.
