Andrea Kelleher longing to want to know more about her roots stemmed from seeing a portrait of her great grandmother that hung in her maternal grandmother’s bedroom when she was a child. She began doing research on her family tree in July 2009. She chronicles her discoveries on her blog, “How Did I Get Here? My Amazing Genealogy Journey.” Her roots predominantly come from eastern North Carolina with her closest ties to Carteret and Craven counties.
