A Message From Uncle Hiram

Welcome to Uncle Hiram's Adventures in Genealogy. I wont promise you every method we discuss will work, as a matter of fact I guarantee they probably won't. We talk about the things I try whether they work or not. I can promise you a slightly off kilter look at our mutual hobby.

My goal is to share my adventures in researching. Hopefully I will make you smile occasionally and laugh out loud at least once. Grab a seat, buckle in and enjoy the ride.
