Started researching in 1974, but work, family, and illness kept me busy until I retired in 2000. Now genealogy is "my life" and I am actively researching, too many families to list.
Gravestones are my biggest interest and volunteered with professional conservators for a number of years. Have lived in Iowa, Kansas, Texas, Virginia, Ohio, New Hampshire, Maryland and now central Pennsylvania.
Families are Mennonite, Amish, Alsatian, German, Scottish, Swiss, English, Canadian.
I am often found in the cemeteries of Cumberland County, PA these days. Take digital photos and have boxes of old photos yet to scan!
PLEASE: my photos and family member tributes on Find A Grave may NOT be posted on Ancestry without my express permission.
UPDATE Aug 2011 - I regret that I am unable to take any photo requests at this time due to health reasons.
