Welcome to Digging Up Roots!

Hi there!

Here is the traditional 'Welcome to the Blog' post!  I am so glad you found me!

I began this genealogy journey way back in 2009, and just recently I've discovered that over the years I've accumulated so much 'stuff' in regards to my various family members that it needed to be shared. But how to share it was the dilemma.  I finally came up with this Blog.

My family surnames are:  Horne | Grahler | Nichols | Nelson | Raiche | Casson | Fritchen - and to add to this main group, I'm also related to Pinard | Barrington | Kime | LeRoy | Beaupre | Abers | Baptist - just to name a few!

Digging Up Roots is not just a family genealogy blog, however. I intend to fill it with general tips, idea's, links and so on, so whether you are a member of the family, or just a genealogy buff like myself, you are more than welcome to set up camp and dig with me!

Have a look around, and if you'd like, comment on this post with a "Hello!" and maybe an introduction.


  1. I know all the hard work that you have been putting into this and will continue to do so. Good luck.
