Getting to know me

February 13, 2017

Recently fellow geneablogger, GeniAus posted a ‘getting to know me’ Meme that came to her via other geneabloggers.  As I’ve mentioned previously, I am a sucker for a meme, so how could I possibly resist.  I really enjoyed getting to know Geniaus through reading her meme

So here is mine for anyone who would like to get to know me better.
