In 2008, Mildred was searching for a good Christmas gift for her parents, who, like most parents, “don’t need a thing.” That’s when she saw a commercial for Ancestry.com.
After spending many Sundays as a child listening to her great aunts and uncles tell stories about life in rural Missouri during the 19th and early 20th centuries, Mildred had developed a love for history, particularly her family’s. In fact, she even studied Oral History while getting her degree in Architectural History at the University of Virginia.
