Arising From the Ashes

After year's of talk and thinking, I broke down and purchased an Ancestry.com account last night to beginning building the family-tree so that I can figure out where my history goes.
Already found a couple of very-cool things.

  • I'm third-generation from Sweden as John I Anderson, or Dad's Mom's dad, made the trip from Sweden to the United States when he was very young.
  • My third great grandfather Rev. Isaac Leedy was a Private during the Civil War with the Fostoria Seneca Company.

It has been very interesting to begin diving into the first part of the search and now I'm getting to the hard part where I have to begin digging for particular people. But it is going to be fun!
