As an amateur genealogist with degrees in computer science and history, I find the intersection of genealogy and history fascinating. Our families and our history are intertwined in interesting and sometimes surprising ways, and I often lose myself in researching background information on my family tree. This tree extends from my husband’s immigration to the US,  back to my ancestors on the Mayflower in 1620, and beyond.

As I stumble on these intersections, I will try to document some of what I learn about my ancestors and the times they lived in.
