Just a little about me....
I was born and raised a Hoosier as a native of St. Joe, Indiana. If you know where St. Joe is, you can probably guess that I grew up on a working farm in a pretty rural area. I currently work for HP Enterprise Services in Information Technology management, and I have been an IT professional for nearly 15 years. I have a B.A. in Political Science from Drake University and came into the IT world after a stint on Capitol Hill in Washington, D.C. I currently live down in sunny Pensacola, Florida.
My ancestors came primarily from Pennsylvania through Ohio and some ended up settling in Indiana. Among my ancestors, I have Pioneers for both Ohio and Indiana, Civil War Veterans, and a Revolutionary War Veteran. My genealogical research currently revolves primarily around northeast Indiana (DeKalb and Allen Counties), and north central Ohio (Wyandot, Crawford, Richland, Ashland, and Stark Counties).
Please take a look at the Surnames page on my blog for information on what families I am currently researching. If we are cousins, or might be cousins, or are just researching in some of the same areas, please don't hesitate to contact me at cwashler at cox dot net. (Yes, I spelled it out just to thwart those pesky spam crawlers that go looking for published email addresses on the web!)
