In the past 6 months, my husband and I have been able to learn more about our extended families, thanks to some great legwork from relatives of ours (shout out to Aunt Julie and Uncle Robert). I have learned where my nose shape and some of my fiestiness comes from (my grandma) and Jed has learned where his long legs come from (his great great grandpa). It's been so fun to see pictures and learn the stories of those who came before us and how they have impacted our physical traits and personality characteristics. My brother even recently got his DNA tested and it breaks down for him by percentage his ancestral ethnicities. How cool is that?!
So with family history on my mind lately, it made me very happy to be chosen as a 2015 blog ambassadors for RootsTech 2015. Woot! Woot! Let's tell some family stories! So in a couple weeks I will be sharing with you all about RootsTech 2015 and my experience there. I know, you're excited! Me too!!
