It is Wednesday. I have spent most of the last two days in Pueblo, I am TIRED but didn't want to miss another day posting.
My maiden name is/was FORD.
My parents surnames were: Ford and Brown.
My grandparents surnames were: Ford, Debord, Brown and White.
My great grandparents' surnames were: Ford, Bias/Baylous, Debord, Hicks, Brown, Hill, White and Walton.
More surnames from my files:
My way of researching is called "cluster" research. I generally gather information on all known children, spouses, in-laws, and some times neighbors.
That means 1) I research a LOT of names 2) I research and add to my file a lot of related and sometimes unrelated people (to me) in order to make sense of the family in question 3) I never run out of people to look for.
When I am not looking for my own, I can do the same with other people's families.
It is a joy and wonderful thing to me.
See you all the next time.

A friend of mine and fellow (but much better) blogger has told me several times that I should "blog" about my genealogy research.
She is very good, I hope to learn a lot from her, but it will take awhile.
Welcome to my first post and I look forward to sharing my family story and my other research with you.
