Bio and Links
Bio Photo Howdy!
I'm just an internet genealogy enthusiast.
My roots trace back from several lines to the colonization of Texas, both in the original German immigrants of San Antonio and New Braunfels (Hauck, Meixner), and some of the first families of Galveston (Joseph, Trueheart, Minor), as well as many migrants to Northeast Texas in the mid-to-later 1800's coming from Alabama, Georgia, Kentucky, and Tennessee (Bean, Turk, Gumm).
I've found genealogy facinating and more educational than almost any activity I've been involved in. Feel free to peruse the family tree - The Beanpod - on ancestry.com where I've followed hundreds of families back to the colonization of America as early as Jamestown and the Massachusets Bay settlements, the Scotch-Irish settlements of Virginia, and the Swiss-German Migrations of South Carolina.
Residing on the Texas Gulf Coast I am happy to volunteer for Find-a-Grave for headstone shots to nearby cemeteries. I live in the area of the original Austin Colonies and am gaining much knowledge and contacts locally.
Feel free to utilyze any photos I take in anyway helpful to you.

Thank you so much for the photos of the Urbans in Cedar Lawn but could you please crop this photo a little so your shoes do not show and redownload it? Thank you very much appreciated.

Thanks so much for taking the time to photograph the headstone for Mae Holland Wilson. I also set up memorial site for her husband, Hiram Everett Wilson based on your photo. I submitted a photo request so you may want to fulfill that one as well with the same photo. Thanks again! Heather
