I am a wife and mom and live in Naperville, Illinois. My husband and I have two wonderful daughters, a wonderful son-in-law, two very large poodles, two cockatiels, and three snakes (we begrudgingly take care of them for our daughter who is away at college). I work as a compliance specialist for credit unions by day. In my spare time, besides researching my family history, I enjoy cross-stitching and reading.
I can’t remember what age I was when I became interested in my family history, but remember being at least 16 when I became serious about it.
This blog will concentrate on my four family lines: Ooms, Bass, Kros and Schoudel. I will also be posting about genealogical research, DNA, photos, areas my family came from and settled in, and other things I can’t think of at the moment.
I hope you will find my blog interesting and follow me as I share our family legacy!
