A long term genealogist with roots in Sweden, Canadian Maritimes, New England, Scotland, England, France and Germany; but primarily a Swede. I grew up in the Upper Penninsula of Michigan far far away from the "big city". The other great obsession I have is for scrapbooking. Which of course ties into my genealogy. I love to meet new relatives and genealogist. But I have a lot of other interests as well including arts, photography, movies, travel and the list goes on and on.
