I am listed as lilbees on this site. My name is Barb Yeoman and I live in Georgia, USA. I am retired and am now hotly working on my family genealogy.

I am not doing this just to collect names but in "the moment" it seems that is what happens and no real relevance to a direct line.

I want to know my family. Those who I had met briefly as a child and those I never met but heard stories about. Wanting to put a face on these people and try to get to know about their lives. So far it has been an exciting trip. I have developed a great deal of empathy for what many of my family members have gone through in their lives. I am amazed at the strength and the faith they had. I am proud of the work they did and the hardships they have endured.

So for me, its not just numbers of ancestors I can collect or discover but the real living people and their lives. I have, I am sure, many cousins out there who are living that I would like to get to know if I can. Most of my generation has passed on. (I am 70+). I am very curious and willing to learn whatever to achieve my goals.

Love being a part of this forum.

Well Barb, we are happy to have you here with us. You add so much knowledge to the forum. I am looking forward to leaning a lot from you as we go on.

I, like you, am doing this for the history, not just the names. My family knew so little about each other that my goal is to write a book when I've gotten enough information. There are so many folks here that are an inspiration to me and my research.

What a nice intro, Barb! I think you have done an amazing job on your research so far. Gina...a book? I think thats great. I've often wondered if I could do the same thing but I think Carole would shoot me since I would probably be bugging her for help every five minutes. You all have done great....

Thanks for sharing with us.

Hi Barb
So nice to know that you are in our age bracket (Carole and I) but age is only a number on a piece of paper its what's in your heart and mind that counts and if your like us (I hope I'm speaking for Carole too) In our minds we're still just in our teens - (just a pity sometimes that the body doesnt always follow the instructions from the 'mind' Smile Smile Smile )
Lately, with lots of help from my friends here on Gente etc, I have just found decendants - (my father's cousins family) and I'm writing to them and have received photographs etc too it has been so emotional and sooo exciting.
I hope the same will happen for you.
Love
God Bless
Emmy

Thank you all for your kind remarks. Not going to write a book. Only trying to make one for our history so my grandchildren and great grandchildren get to know their family. That is why it is especially important to understand the lives of my family. Certainly hope to make some kind of contact with possible family members hopefully to learn more.

Have a great day everyone.

Greetings from England Barb, your introduction more or less mirrored my reasons for searching out my family tree. My Grandfather was born in 1875 in a little village called Pico in Italy, married in England in 1904 to an Italian girl. Whilst I have been successful in finding my Grandmother's family tree, my Grandfather's is proving more difficult.
This is a great site, and like the other members thanks for sharing with us.
Best wishes.
Mike.
