I’ve been tagged by Janet the Researcher and Kimberly Powell at Genealogy.About.com in the “5×5” meme. This could be fun.

10 Years Ago, I…

  1. Spoke at my first national genealogy conference (FGS in Cincinnati).
  2. Became the first editor of Ohio Civil War Genealogy Journal.
  3. Was doing research for clients.
  4. Toyed with the idea of going back to school. (It would take another 9 years before I’d actually do it!)
  5. Could not have guessed what my life would be like right now.
