Welcome to Family Tree Circles. Whether you're new here or have been around for a long time, please reply to this journal and introduce yourself.
I'm the owner and developer of FTC, and have been working on it on-and-off for maybe four years now. I recently got a boost of energy and redesigned it completely. I'm a full-time web developer and a part-time genealogist and the combination of those two interests has resulted in this website, for better or worse. It is very rewarding every time someone finds something useful here. Through FTC, I've connected with several cousins of mine, and I know that many others have as well.
Genealogically speaking, I'm lucky enough to have been handed some good family research. I've got two documented lines back to the Mayflower (Stephen Hopkins and William Brewster), that my grandparents researched. I'm also fortunate that my own father's line and my own name is well documented back about 12 generations to 17th century France via Quebec, CA. In the past 10 years or so, thanks to the Internet, I've added much to the research.
Personally, I have lived in Massachusetts (US) all my life. I've got two children who will hopefuly share some of my interest in this hobby.
