Fearless Community Media Executive Director by day.
Hopeless genealogy nerd by night.

When I was 15 years old and visiting my grandparents in Beavercreek, Ohio, my grandfather handed me a photo and said, “This is my mother, Lillian.”

We spent the rest of the afternoon pouring through old photo albums together and for the first time, I realized that the other people who came before me were actual people…not just names on a piece of paper.
