A California native, Atlanta has been home for nearly 25 years. Several years after graduating college and settling here permanently, I learned an interesting fact during a conversation with my grandmother. My second great grandparents migrated from Cartersville, Georgia to California in the early 1900’s, shortly after the turn of the century. It was as if I returned home to family ties which I did not know existed. Those conversations with Granna lead to me becoming a genealogy enthusiast for nearly 18 years and joining a local genealogy group – something I love to do in my spare time.
