Bio and Links
Bio Photo Most of my paternal relatives are primarily from Illinois, Kentucky and Europe (my dad said he was Irish and German)and my maternal relatives are from upper Michigan and Austria/Poland/Germany (Polish/German/Hungarian). I have created memorials for my parents (Oscar Rolland Reynolds and Bernice Marie Reynolds) and known ancestors who passed that family members have not created memorials for. Everyone is special and deserves to be remembered. I do appreciate when you leave tokens for any of my family.

Please remember our states and counties had different boundaries and the mode of transportation was different in earlier centuries than the luxury of an automobile like now! Some states or borderlines may not have existed then.

I will transfer other relatives' memorials if you are closer than I am to deceased and have some kind words to add to their bio/memorial. Those predeasing us should NOT be held hostage by a member that may have gotten away with bulk transfering a surname before guidelines prohibited! Look at the dates as well as the names and locations to see if they match your ancestors as they may really be someone else. See site guidelines!

Overall, don't assume they are related because of a name in an area. I am finding several with same name a lot in a family during a time period!

NOTE: If you send an email to my Yahoo account, I am not ignoring you. Yahoo doesn't seem to work well lately, especially on weekends and parts of Fiday and Mondays!

RE: Transfer - Guy Swinford
My husband was originally a Swinford and Guy seems to be one of his relatives, though I'm not sure which aspect as yet. When I get all of this figured out, I will transfer management of this memorial.
