24 years…

This summer will mark 24 years since I began researching my genealogy, more than half my life. ¬†It all began because of some genealogy papers my Mom had given me and a book called Anne Arundel’s Legacy by Donna Ware. ¬†Looking over the papers I realized a tobacco barn in the book was built by my 4th great grandfather, Thomas Tongue, and a trip to find the barn and St James Church, where he is buried was it took to be totally hooked.
