    I was always interested in ancestors, from when I was a small child. When I started college, in 1972, at BYU-Hawaii, I immediately took a genealogy class and got started. They were very picky, then, and if you didn’t have a primary source, it was a real struggle to get anything accepted. You could spend hours and hours looking for one thing and find nothing. It wasn’t for the faint of heart!
