My name is Ellen Thompson-Jennings and I’m the self-proclaimed Family History Hound.

Ellen - 7 Web Use (2)

After interviewing my great-grandmother;  I put the answers she gave in a cardboard box that I kept for over 30 years. Then 18 years ago I decided; I can do this, I have the time. That’s when this journey started. Through family history I’ve discovered numerous cousins, I’ve learned who my ancestors were and in some cases why they did the things they did. Along the way I started my store; Shop the Hound where we like to showcase tools for genealogy and some of the fun things I think you’ll like.  On this journey, I discovered a passion for genetic genealogy and although I’m not an expert I think my deep dive into the subject may help others with their quest.

So please follow my blog and my journey to find out more about genealogy and genetic genealogy.
