Meet Barbara Thoren
I grew up in Montpelier VT, but both sets of grandparents lived in East Schodack NY so I spent many weekends and summers in Rensselaer and Columbia counties. So the area is special to me now. Fond memories of picking apples and berries. Swimming holes. I have spent many years researching my ancestry and found that I am descended from some of the first European settlers in the Hudson valley. I have lived in Vero Beach Florida for 35 years. Unfortunately don't have the chance to spend much time anymore in the Hudson valley area. Just a week or two every few years basically doing family research.
