Bio and Links
Bio Photo 08-09: At the same time my adult children left home, I lost my parents within 11 months of each other. Upon going through their belongings, the family found a treasure trove of old, old photos, some identified and others not. That single experience led me on my quest to find my family's story. I travel a great deal to ancestral "homes" and get photos of stones in various cemeteries across the states. I have them on my computer and hope that if anyone else is looking for a name/date/cemetery/, sharing my found information may be of some assistance as they look for the details of their personal story. My nest is emptied, my parents gone and my life has been revived by my passion for genealogy. Carpe Diem!
2010: Please let me know if you want ownership of my non family members. I would be happy to transfer these to you.
2011: Looking for Pennsylvania/MA/VT/RI/NY family names of Parkin, Stafford, Skiff, Brooks, Smith, Parker, Howe, Gore, Hicks, Mathewson, May, Ballou, Williams, Lanning, Barger and more.
2012: My searches have pretty much ended for now regarding my own family members. Please let me know if you want me to transfer any family members to your site.
2014: We have created a Face Book page to link all living Skiff members together again. Half of that family migrated west to mine and survey newly developing lands in the late 1800s. We also have a page for Parkin or Scott from Lewiston, Maine and Cannelton, Indiana, miners and mill workers. And one more page for Laning/Barger/Blower family members from Pennsylvania, New York, Wales, Palentine Germans, etc. and would love to find those family members who migrated west in the early 1900s. Please leave me a message on this site and I will contact you. Excited for the future of our ancestors on both Facebook and Find A Grave.
2015: I am thrilled that has included FIND A GRAVE. I continue to edit photo entries as requests come in by email. I apologize that I am just seeing the edit tab on my home page. I will respond to those requests today. This year I have started working on my husband's family as well as several of my high school classmates' trees. Next year will be more of the same. Chris PG

Your bio
Chris, I love your bio and the way you became interested in searching family is very similar to my beginning. I had things here such as an old family tree but then I found some stuff in my Mom's belongings and I was off and running.
I believe a few items have been sold by an untrustworthy soon to be ex-husband but I can't prove it and I should have known better.
My 1st ex did the same thing only he threw things out. Neither one had any interest in family research.
I am such a screw up when it comes to husband material! LOL

Sanford burial
The photo on this memorial appears to be that of his wife. I'm so tired at the moment and have at least a dozen pages open.

Hello Chris,
Great job with the photos.

I would be interested in managing the following two memorials...

Sylvester Smith Gravestone
Are you a relative to Sylvester Smith? Memorial # 35522830 in Loomis Cemetery, Crawford County, PA.
I have his death certificate which indicates he died in Bloomfield, Crawford county. If you are a relative maybe you can help me put other members of the Smith family together.

Thank you

RE: Mary Karner Hare
Mary Karner Hare is as far back as I currently go. Her possible parents are Nicholas Karner and Mary Welch. I still need to do research on this side of my family. Sorry I can't help you more.

Betsey Hicks
You have a picture posted on Find A Grave of the headstone of Betsey Hicks. Her maiden name is Brewer and is an ancestor of mine.

I would like to make a copy of your picture if this is okay with you.
