“We have learned that what the next generation will value most is not what we owned, but the evidence of who we were and the tales of how we loved. In the end, it’s the family stories that are worth the storage.”  Ellen Goodman


My name is Robin Atkins and I am a genealogist with more than 40 years of practical experience in historical research.

Now, with the encouragement of family who think I should share my obsession with heritage (most likely because they’re tired of me rattling on about great-grandma-this and great-grandpa-that), I’ve decided to blog about my life as a family detective in hopes of educating, entertaining and perhaps enticing a whole new generation of ancestral blood hounds.
