Many of the stories I'll be sharing have a personal, family touch to them!
Since the late 1690s, various branches of our family lived through many of the major memorable moments of Virgin Islands history.
Love of Family History
Ever since I was a young girl, I've been intrigued by genealogy and our family's history. Having this passion early on has helped me capture many of these stories. 🔎
Inspiration for the Blog
Early in 2015, I attended one of the largest genealogy conferences in the world, Rootstech.
The conference buzz was all about the importance of preserving one's family history through story-telling.
Inspired by their message, I wrote and shared my first blog post! A Moment with a Movie Star chronicled my mother's chance encounter with the handsome movie star, Dana Andrews. Since 2015, I've shared over 160 stories!
