I have been researching my family’s genealogy for over 15 years and have never ceased to be amazed at the many twists and turns my research has taken me. I have researched both my paternal Milson ancestry as well as my maternal Dickinson roots.

The research of early 19th century family historian, Wharton Dickinson, and his claims of the family's roots linking early Dickinson ancestors to Viking, Norman and Anglo Saxon royalty has been a particular interest of mine.
