My name is Heather Collins, I’m 23 years old, I’m a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, and I’m a genealogist.
I have been doing genealogy for almost ten years. My focus primarily includes southwestern Virginia, northwestern North Carolina, and east Tennessee. I specialize in Civil War history and records, and I frequently volunteer to index local cemeteries.
This blog is my endeavor to share the stories and records from my family history, and to preserve them for my posterity. I also intend to provide insight into my research processes and contributions so my descendents and others can learn from my experiences.
