Bio and Links
July, 2016
I will have limited computer access during July. I will make all updates as time allows.
* * * * *

Recently had my DNA tested and it verified that I am almost 50/50 Finnish and Irish heritage.

When I walk a cemetery, I make a note of other nearby relatives, the section/area I am in and include it in my transcriptions. When you are researching a 'John Smith', it helps to know if there are other 'Smith' names next to him.
Some cemeteries restrict photo taking by non-family members. Having any plot information helps all of the photo volunteers.
When I first started, I just wrote down names without photos. Now I take photos of all of the headstones.

Quite often I find myself researching the folks that I create memorials for, adding additional information and linking as many as I can locate.

As time allows, I am willing to do some Oregon obituary research for others. This is my form of 'Pay It Forward'.

* * * * *
I will make corrections/additions to any memorial that I have created.

All requests are verified before I change the memorial.

The typhoon never hit - just a lovely day to get stuff done. Yes, one day we will meet. I'll be around in August 2017!

Vida G "McMillan"
My research on Vida G, b: July 1888, Kansas shows she was the daughter of Charles Edward Pearson (1857-1924) and Sarah Jane Hill (1859-1935) Vida married twice. Her first husband was Ralph E Blaco. They had two sons before their divorce. (Ralph remarried). Her second marriage was to Ellis G McMillan (who had been previously married). Vida and Ellis had a daughter, Bethel (b; 1920; d: 2007).
Correct me if I am wrong.
