I’m Linda Stufflebean and I have been a family history researcher since 1979. Most of my friends would agree that I’m a genealogy addict. In addition to doing some professional work, I have been a volunteer teacher here in Tucson for ten years. Through the years, I have visited numerous repositories, court houses and cemeteries in the quest for details about the lives of my ancestors. Of course, there have been brick walls along the way. I have been fortunate to find ways to knock down – or march around – many of them and decided to focus this blog on some of my methods and how I’ve had to think outside the box to find success. I’ll also share great (mostly free) resources I come across and, last but not least, hope to connect with many distant cousins.
