Bio and Links
Bio Photo My interest in genealogy started back in the 1970s when I tried putting pieces together on my maternal grandmother and her family. I have since learned the Doyles came to San Francisco in 1853 by way of Australia (10 years there) from County Cork in Ireland, leaving in 1841. Since I can't do local research there, I want to help others here.

I've been the list mom of the CA death index mailing list at I created the mailing list in 2000 when the state closed the death index to genealogists. Since then I've collected online obituaries from the San Joaquin newspapers and adjacent counties hoping to help others in their research.

My interest in San Joaquin county is based on growing up in Lodi. I'm a 1966 graduate of Lodi High. My parents, grandparents and great grandparents on my father's side (Coe) are buried in Lodi Memorial Cemetery. While I can't take photos, I can help with vital record indexes and obituaries. And occasionally I can get to Lodi to do footwork. Just not very often since I still work full time.

Thank you very much for your time and effort in providing the death information for my cousin. Especially the CA Death Index (pity it was closed to genealogists). Very much appreciated! Sandy Morrey

Hi, Colleen

I appreciate your taking the time to contact me with the information, and as it turns out, I do indeed have it as she was one of my cousins. I will keep you in mind in case I need help with another family member who passed in San Joaquin, CA.

Hi, thank you for the obituary for Dennis. He was a wonderful friend. I live in Modesto so I will go to Lakewood during the next couple of weeks and try to get a picture and post it. Again thank you, Rose.

RE: Philomela Johnson
I just found your messages about the Johnson's. I called the cemetery and they did confirm that Miles is there, but no record of Philomela. But, he said that it could be that she just wasn't recorded. He didn't know if Miles had a headstone by looking at the paperwork. I have a photo request in for both of them, thinking that there might be a stone for her (have had that happen a number of times - the office has no record of them but there is a stone for them in the cemetery).
