About Me

Hello and welcome to my blog!

About Me

Name: Renée Schmidt
Location: Virginia

I am a College Freshman at Marymount University located in Virginia who just really loves genealogy. Not many people in my family are interested in researching our ancestors, but they do enjoy a good story. On my blog, you will find manifestations of my obsession in the form of both stories about my ancestors and tutorials about how to find information on yours. My other obsessions include programming and art, and who knows you may see some evidence of those loves on this blog as well (in the appropriate genealogical contexts of course!)

What I'm Working on

I am currently working on expanding the available dates in my program, Census2Ged. Specifically, I am adding a more comprehensive gui that will let you select what you want to include in the final gedcom output. 


  1. I have to say I've thoroughly enjoyed exploring your site. I'm not a fan of blogs, as most often they are so complicated you need to be a rocket scientist to read them, or so silly they are not worth reading. I like the way you explain everything, link items etc. You have a very good knack for this and I will enjoy following you. Another history/genealogy nut Cara

    1. Thank you very much! It means a lot to know that what I am saying is helping or entertaining people.
