I'm a homeschool mom, former college instructor in the humanities and art history, and I hold a BA in Photography and an MFA in Interdisciplinary Arts. When I was 12 I wanted to be a genealogist. When my Aunt Joann, the family genealogist, died back in 2011 I scooped up what she had gathered about our family history. I'm just starting to dig fearlessly into archives to break down a brick wall that abruptly stopped at her 3rd, my 4th, great grandfather, Simon Gilman. The purpose of this blog is to record my process in breaking down this wall as well as the journey it takes me on along the way.
