Karen's Family Kaleidoscope

A collection of several trees, some trees are people related to me. Some are research I have done for others.



When people ask me how long I've been doing genealogy, the truest answer is “all my life.” My parents and most of their relatives talked a lot about family history and I was a frequent evesdropper to those conversations, absorbing it like a little sponge. I helped both of my parents record some of the basic information they remembered about their parents, grandparents, etc. It wasn't until after both of them were gone that I decided it was up to me to record their memories but, being somewhat of a perfectionist, I just had to fill in some gaps. Fifteen years later I'm still filling in gaps. A genealogist is never finished. Along the way I have become acquainted with some wonderful cousins who have shared the work and made it much more fun. This site will eventually contain several unrelated trees. There were lines that had been connected to mine by earlier genealogists but through research or DNA evidence or both, we now know they are not all related to each other. Because of the amount of evidence gathered, I have decided to share some of those lines also. Why a Kaleidoscope? Because like family history, kaleidoscope images are always changing, and like the folks on this site, they are colorful.
