Bio and Links
Bio Photo I've been tracing my family for at least 20 years.
direct surnames include:
Abel, Yoders, Keller - WV & PA & OH
Leithe, Latz, Kleinsorge - WV & PA
Dacquisto, D'Amato, Machi - Sicily & Milwaukee area

My husband's side:
Goldsmith, Strader - central WV
Sims, Williams - central WV

My first daughter's father's family :
Lassan, Horvath - Ohio & WV & Hungary
Darrah, Ford - WV

I grew up in Ohio & Marshall County. I've been living in Lewis County for over 10 years, now.

I'm currently photographing MacPelah Cemetery in Weston and Friendship Cemetery in Jane Lew.
I've also done some of Peterson and the Masonic Cemetery in Weston.
I have all of St Bridget Church Cemetery photographed, if I can find the pictures to upload them....

I love walking the cemeteries to take pictures of the stones. It's very peaceful. I usually brush off the grass clippings and dirt and leaves before taking a photo.
I also love looking up the people online and trying to fill in their information and connect children with their parents and put spouses together. It's made slightly easier through one of my favorite websites:
It allows me to look up birth records to 1914, death records to 1964, and marriage records to about 1970, for West Virginia.

I work full time and have a little girl and a husband tugging at my shirttails.
From our older daughter, we have 2 precious grandsons.
My other stress relievers are reading, crocheting, and sleeping.

RE: D'Amato
Angela looks like we could be related! On my dad's side, my nano had D'Amato's as cousins and one of them was Frank who was married to Maddalena Busalacchi! (I did add a picture of their headstone on find a grave) My dad's generation had over 45 1st cousins! So there are a lot of people to research. This fall and winter I'm planning to work more on genealogy so if I come across anything I'll send it your way. My email address is

RE: D'Amato
You are welcome. I've been working on my family tree on my dad's side for about a year now. He grew up in Milwaukee and his dad was from Porticello Sicily. We have D'Amato's on his dad side so whenever I'm in Milwaukee I try to spend some time at Holy Cross. If I find any D'Amato headstone I take a picture (someday I may find out they are related) I do love your burial records with the personal pictures they are very nice to look at.

Angela, thanks so much for the nice photos for Charleton & Luary. These photos help so much in making sure names/dates are correct. In this case, edits were needed. Appreciate your help.
