My most recent obsession is genealogy. I was adopted at birth and have spent forty years searching and eventually finding my biological family. I also have researched my adopted family and even some other unrelated (to me) families. It is the thrill of the hunt that keeps me interested in genealogy.
Genealogy is a puzzle. It is exciting to find new pieces that fit and to read our ancestors’ stories. I especially love digging up newspaper articles and photos.
Along with genealogy, I mainly enjoy sedentary activities. I play bridge, read, play games online, etc. I have tried to use the computer while riding on a stationery bike, but either I or the computer would always fall off. The one daily physical activity I perform is walking my Rat Terriers, Gomez and Tito.
Through the genealogy, I have joined Daughters of the American Revolution and The Mayflower Society. I also joined Mensa many years ago and have attended events in Cambridge, Nottingham, London and Orkney (Scotland). The British Isles are very comfortable to me as that is where the majority of my DNA comes from. I’ve tested my personal DNA on both familyfinderdna.com and 23andme.com.
