About Me

Photo of Me sometime in the 1980’s earning a student of the month award!

My name is William, I currently live (and grew up) in California, USA, and I’m in my mid-30’s. I mention my age because I’m often mistaken for my Grandfather or Father, both of whom are also named William, by relatives who find my postings and information on other sites related to family history and assume that someone my age wouldn’t be involved in something like genealogy. 🙂

Although I started looking into my family’s history in college while taking a research course, I have always had an interest in history. There is just something compelling about the past. Whether it’s world history, art history, natural history, or architectural history, history is interesting to me. Since college, I have continued researching my family history when I’ve had the time in order to fill in gaps or compile a more complete history.

I have other interests apart from genealogy and history in general, but I must admit that what people say is true, genealogy is addicting.

    • Thank you. 🙂 It’s a bit sad that people my age and younger aren’t interested in family history, as they would stand a better chance of gathering information from older generations in their family. I was lucky to be able to gather information from my grandparents and great grandparents, several of whom have since passed away.

  1. Thanks for visiting and liking my post on photo restoration. I was keen to have a look at your site as I am considering a family tree blog. I was interested to see what you have posted and I like your web/posting style and information. I have been inspired a lot – so thanks again!
