Bio and Links
I am a Title Searcher, which ties together my love of history and research. Title searching a piece of property is similar to researching a familyís history.

I have been working, periodically, on mine and my husband's family histories since the 1970's. My love of family stories started in childhood, when my parents would talk about growing up and their relatives at the dinner table. Two of my most prized possessions are a tape recording of my Dad recounting his time on the USS Otis (sub tender) during WW II and my husbandís Grandmother recounting her life and family.

I am currently adding obituaries from the Danbury News Times, and from the family history I am compiling. When I visit my parents graves in Wyckoff, NJ, I will continue the work already started there.

Although, I try to be accurate, if any errors are found or you would like something added, please do not hesitate to contact me. I would also consider taking pictures of local headstones, or buildings for those doing research from a distance.

If anyone has information on the following families, please do not hesitate to contact me. JACKSON, SCHIFFTNER, FUNDER, MASON, HAYES, CONCANNON, HOLLAND, HAVENS, KINNEY, HAYWOOD, GRANERT, VOORHIS, PULIS, KRUFFUS, CHRISTENSDR, THYGESEN, HUNT, CHALMERS, BAILEY, HASLAM, CARLSON, LUHAGENBERRY, HUNT.
These families came from England, Ireland, Germany, Denmark, Holland and Sweden. They mostly settled in the New York and Boston areas, before moving on to other locations in the USA. I need information on both sides of the Atlantic on them.

I would be interested in hearing from anyone who has been helped by the information I have entered.

Please change the death date for George H Longbottom to 4 Aug 1856. This is clearly visible on his tombstone. Thanks

Memorial# 9789705 - Capt W. W. Chisholm
No one in our family has ever seen a picture of Capt. Chisholm. I am fascinated by the picture you have posted on findagrave. Do you have any information related to that picture. Anything at all, because I can't quit wondering about who, where, when?
