About

Melissa Thomas McKenneyI’m a Richmond native with deep Virginia roots.  What started as a little dabbling into the census records of my family on a family member’s Ancestry.com account many years ago has become a full-blown passion for family history and genealogy research.

My personal objectives are to gather more than just names, but to learn the whys and hows of my ancestors’ lives and to learn as much as I can about the art and science of genealogy so that I can eventually help others to do the same.

The purpose of this blog is to share my findings so that others researching their Virginia roots can make the same kinds of connections that have helped me to break through so many of those inevitable brick walls.
