I am a family historian and genealogist. After 32 years of service, I recently retired from my job as a paralegal specialist with the federal government. I am an animal lover, a sister, an aunt, and a friend. I am currently the Corresponding Secretary for the Afro-American Historical and Genealogical Society – Metro Atlanta Chapter. I am a member of the Georgia Genealogical Society, the Friends of the Georgia Archives, the National Genealogical Society, and the Savvy Sisters Book Club.
I have been researching my family history for about ten years. My passion for genealogy grows daily, as does my desire to tell the stories of my ancestors.
Taliaferro is my paternal line. My father was John Lawrence Taliaferro. That is his image that you see on the home page. Growing up, he was not a presence in my life. I only recall seeing him on one occasion. It was a summer day when I was about eight or nine years old. It was a brief moment that I will never forget. Someday, I will tell that story. Most of what I know about him and his family I have pieced together on my own through my research. This blog is dedicated to my father for many reasons, but mostly because he never had a chance to tell his side of the story.
