Our latest blog profile is by Bill West, who writes “West in New England." Here, Bill introduces himself and his blog:
I'm a 63-year-old former bookseller with a degree in history. My interest in genealogy was sparked by the research done by my Aunt Dorothy (West) Bargar. My ancestry is a mix of Pilgrim and Puritans on my Dad's side of the family, and Irish and German immigrants on my Mom's. I began blogging in hopes of making contact with relatives from both sides, and to put what I'd discovered in my research online where it could be shared with them. I still consider myself a newbie and I'm learning new things everyday. I enjoy the journey and hope my readers do as well!
