I have been doing genealogy for 30 years. My Great Aunt Ella introduced me to this fascinating adventure when I was a teenager and boy did I get hooked. She inspired me and taught me the importance of my roots and where I came from. I am proud to be a genealogist. I also have a criminal justice degree so the detective in me just has to search for all those treasure's out there.

William Montgomery Barnett born abt 1814 in Illnois, married Martha Polly Ann (Mary) Thompson born & died Illinois. The 1850 census for Randolph County, IL has William at age 56 and a farmer. It's the only document I have and this is all the information I have. So my mystery is finding his birth place in Illinois, his death and marriage information and his wife's. I would say the size of this brick wall I can not even climb and will some time to knock them bricks out of my way. But as a determined genealogist nothing will stand in my way way for long, I will climb over it, dig under it or find a way around it. My search will go on and I will find my pot of gold at the end of the rainbow.
