Cars - 52 Weeks of Personal Genealogy & History

When I saw the posting about CARS, I had to smile. My late father's "hobby" was CARS!! Specifically, old cars. So no big surprise that my first car was a 1966 Plymouth Barracuda. Dad borrowed a battery to get it home and work on it (purchased for $100.00). So for my junior & senior years of high school, I drove a tri-color car to school and loved it!! For graduation, my car was painted...and again I loved it!! Saddest day was when I "upgraded" to air conditioning after college.

I am STILL in the process of finding and organizing my photos so in the future I will post pictures of some of the great (didn't always think so at the time) cars we had.

Finally, An Intro

Decided to go ahead and take the plunge and start a blog!! My goal is post weekly (if not more when inspired).

A little about me. I've been on and off this great journey for more years than I really want to admit :) Both my parents have roots in Clinton & Essex Counties, New York. Two rural counties. Two counties that seem to always be left off EVERYTHING I find. But just means I have to improvise and hope the genealogy fairies are on my side!!!
