Welcome to my blog, formerly a website established in 2000 at Geocities. The purpose of having an online presence was, and still remains, to serve as a home for my interests. Offline, I’m a proposal manager for a government contractor, and I live in Northern Virginia with my husband. I am a sixth generation resident of the Washington, DC area and grew up in Arlington, VA.
My primary hobby is genealogy. The major focus of this site is to share the results of my research on the Rorick families of Sussex County, New Jersey. I’m also actively researching the Dettmar family of Spanbeck, Germany and North Carolina, the Hilton family of Washington, DC, and the Pettus and Harrison families of Virginia, among others.
