Meet the Owner

I am Kathy Galovic, owner of The Wyllo Tree.

When I was a young girl, my grandfather talked about how he met my grandmother. I always thought it was a wonderful story. Even though Gramma was a couple of years older than him, Grampa’s heart was pierced by cupid’s arrow the very first time he laid eyes on her.

As I grew older, many of the elder members of my family talked about previous generations, mentioning surnames such as Spivey, Spears, Thornton and Pepper. In those days, the Beatles was a popular singing group, and I sometimes thought I was somehow related to “Sargent Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band.” That’s a child’s naievity at work.

It wasn’t until some years later, when one of my Uncles on my mother’s side died and left a copy of his genealogical work to my mother, that I fully became engulfed by my family’s history. So now I have been on my own personal genealogical adventure for nearly 30 years, and it has not always been an easy road to travel.

Although I have helped many budding genealogists get started on their own advertures through time and assisted them in setting down their own roots to establish a solid footing in their research, I always dreamed about having my own business that might help more genealogists sort out the raveled bits and pieces of their past. Finally, that dream is coming to fruition with this blog.

It is my intent to offer as much information here to help the budding genealogist as well as the seasoned genealogist.

Please, feel free to explore the blog and bookmark us, as we will be adding new content all the time.
