About Me

Let me introduce myself.

I’m Jennifer.

To make it short and sweet: I’m a homeschooling mom, an obsessed genealogist, a photo enthusiast, an avid traveler and a self-professed bookaholic.

      Hi Anna-Karin!
      Thank you for leaving me a message.
      I would love to share information with you. My great-great grandmother was Christina Elisabeth Bennberg, daughter of Johan Bennberg and Christina Olsdatter. She was born in Moklinta in 1845 and died in Gavle in 1919. She traveled to America a few times to visit her children, most of whom emigrated from Sweden in the late 1800’s and early 1900s. Do you know if you have a connection to this family?

    Hi Jen,
    I have not started blogging yet. I am looking at what is out there and forming a clearer picture of what I want to do. I have been researching my family tree for just 18 months or so. I like the way you have used photos and story. I think I will be passing by now and then. Best wishes. MaureenReplyCancel

    Hello Jennifer. It was so nice to find your blog and spend some time browsing through your pages. I have a quilting blog but have recently become interested in genealogy, so decided to check out genealogy some blogs. Your blog is exceptionally well done. Thanks for taking the time to share with us!ReplyCancel

    Hi Jennifer,

    In the spirit of RootsTech 2015 (as I know you may be attending this year), we released an infographic outlining the “State of the Genealogy Industry”, giving a graphical representation of the current state of the industry based off of Genealogy In Time Magazine’s yearly report and analysis.

    Top Free Sites, Top Paid, Genealogy Market Share, and the growth of the Genealogy industry over the past year. http://crestleaf.com/blog/top-genealogy-websites-of-2015/

    If you’d like, I can send over the graphic to share with your community?

    Hope you enjoy!

    Kind Regards,
