My name is Kris P. and I have been writing From the Seed to the Branches since March 2009. From the Seed to the Branches is a blog about my journey, sometimes frustrating, always rewarding, into the details of my family tree. It journals my genealogy trials and tribulations as well, and things I’ve learned at the same time about the fine art of the research behind that genealogy.
My love of genealogy was gently seeded by the finding of a family history book in my childhood, and blossomed relatively recently when I decided to join the Daughters of the American Revolution.
I’m living in Massachussetts with my husband, two daughters, two cats, and one gerbil, far from my much warmer hometown of New Orleans, Louisiana.
