The influence of family

My paternal grandmother interested me in our family history.  Early in my genealogy research I discovered that my maternal grandfather was born in the late 1800's.  That information fascinated my teenage mind and somehow made the time frame more real.  

It wasn't simply history it was personally relevant.

It's why I've set my western historical stories in the late 1800's.
