One interest I have and really haven't blogged about is genealogy, also referred to as family history. In today's society we sometimes lose our family history and I think it is important for each of us to know where we came from. What's even more important is our family's medical history. Do you know what conditions run in your family? Heart Disease, Cancer, etc. There are so many conditions that have a genetic link or increased risk. Remember those medical history forms you complete at the doctor's office, well it helps to know more than just your parents or even grandparents' history.
On a recent trip, I went searching at the Napa County Historical Society. The staff was very friendly and helpful at the Historical Society. Check out their online catalogue from their website if you are searching for your ancestors.
And if you don't mind visiting cemeteries looking for your ancestors, check out Tulocay Cemetery. General Vallejo's brother, Salvador is buried there.
Good luck on your search and if you need help I am here to help you.
