I was mesmerized by her recollections of our family and by the age of sixteen, I was off visiting distant relatives, plowing through documents in courthouses and wandering old, mostly forgotten, cemeteries. Now, oh so many years later, I’ve decided it’s time to put my experiences out there and explain what I’ve learned. My goal is to educate people of all ages about the importance of discovering and preserving history, so I hope that by sharing my own moments of discovery, sprinkled with joy, laughter, tears and falls, I might cultivate a new generation of researchers and pay homage to the loving souls who carry the stories of those who came before us.
I will be publishing a new post about once a week, so if you would like to share my journey, please enter your email address below.

“Robin F. Atkins is my genealogical ‘hired gun’ so to speak- hired smart phone camera, chasing after, sniffing out and photographing family records for me. My back keeps me from doing a lot of this records collecting legwork anymore myself, but I was lucky to find Robin who is as thorough as I would like to think I would be.”
