Identity of the Drown Man

The sad end to my 2nd great grand uncle, Hugh Hazard, on September 8, 1889. He was the third son of Richard and Anna (Brady) Hazard of Rochester, Monroe County, New York.

One year anniversary!!

One year ago today, I brought Twisted Twigs on Gnarled Branches Genealogy to Facebook. I have had so much fun! I have met some amazing people, enjoyed sharing my adventure while researching my own family history, and adored reading all the comments left.  

As genealogists, we know that life can be short. Researching genealogy has been a passion of mine for decades. I remember sitting in one of my 8 am Medical Technology classes one year ago. I feverishly wrote an email, before class started, to a newly discovered distant cousin who's family though my 2nd Great Grandmother died as a baby. My professor came over and mentioned that he had the same look in his eyes when he started his Medical Technology classes. Something clicked. While I enjoy studying medicine and hoped to become a physician, I would most likely be preoccupied with thoughts of probate records to obtain and cemeteries I had yet to visit. I walked out of that class and never looked back. I am currently applying to Wayne State University to receive a Master in Library and Information Science degree and hope to become a certified genealogist in the next year. 

I want to thank everyone who visits Twisted Twigs on Gnarled Branches Genealogy. I sincerely appreciate all of you!
