Gini's Research Toolbox

About Me ~

My first post!

This is my first post and I am excited, it took me a long time to get the nerve up to do it! Had it not been for Mysteri at Heritage Happens and all of her help and support I would still be checking out everyone else's blog and staying behind the lines...Thank you Mysteri for everything, you have helped me more than you know!

A little about myself: My given name is Virginia, my nickname is "Gini" pronounced Jeannie. It really came in handy for my blog title and other areas of Genealogy! I was born in Germany and came here by ship when I was 3, I have alot of wonderful family history.

I have only been doing Genealogy for about a year and am very new to blogs, only a few months. I have alot to learn and am very excited about it. I am looking forward to retirement so that I can spend as much time on researching, and blogging as I want! It will be hard to keep up with all the genea-bloggers, I work full time and have a pretty busy life so I may not be able to post daily, it will be fun trying though!

My direct lines are: IJAMES/EIMES (my grandfather changed the spelling!), HAF, SAULE, JARBOE, TABELING. On the Eimes side we have gone back to 1120 with the help of a relative in Ohio: Roberta Iiames, she has been an incredible source. I have come along way in just a year and I know it's going to be an exciting journey ahead. I look forward to hopefully being a part of the Genealogy Blog world!
