Why This Family History Blog?

Welcome to Indiana Ties.  This blog is my latest form of family history adventure.  I have my husband to thank for introducing me to family research in 2002 in the dark microfilm room in the state library. Finding marriage records in the basement archives of the courthouse and more history online had me definitely hooked. A very rewarding highlight of these ten years has been talking with family about their memories and sharing the information I uncover. This led to writing my family stories and newsletters. Now it's time to take it a step further.   My design for this genealogy blog is to connect our history with more family members and find more opportunities to learn from other genealogists.

But why call the blog Indiana Ties?  Well, the majority of my ancestors originate in Germany and all eventually made their homes in Indiana.  Thus... Indiana Ties.  My families do meander through various states and grow many branches, and some even are stalled out. So, I'm getting out the fertilizer to try out this new ground.  I hope there are family members and fellow family historians who'll climb with me, or at least hang around to watch for a few new leaves to sprout. 

Thanks for visiting.
