So, now that summer vacation is upon us, I decided to upgrade the Cole County Genealogy website. To be honest, I was simply trying to make some needed additions and improvements, and it has turned into a major overhaul! The website builder I previously used is no longer supported and everywhere I looked, it said you need a website which can change based on the device the user has. So, here it is! This is another *new* Cole County, Missouri, GenWeb site. Feedback is welcome!
Becoming a genealogist for me was simple. It began with a desire to learn more about myself. Why do I think the way I think? Why do I feel the way I feel? I know that my life and my character and my personality have all been shaped by my parents. This means, of course, that they were shaped by their parents who were also shaped by their parents, and so on. It was important, then, for me to discover as much as I could about those people we call 'ancestors' because only then could I realize how exactly I came to be the person I am today.
