|Bio and Links|
I have been in the curious position of being an American in Australia since 1989. I have a great love for both countries. My accent is a weird mixture of both. I remain a Yank in Oz and an Aussie in the US. At least it's a great conversation starter! |
I am married to an interesting and hard-working man, and we have two gorgeous children.
My vocation is education, teaching English to adult migrants and refugees. I get tremendous satisfaction from my work.
My passion is genealogy. I have been researching since 1983, a time when I had to duck secretively into the National Archives in case any of my friends saw me. The stories that I have uncovered, although not all happy ones, have inspired me and made me proud to be connected to the people who have come before me.
I am thrilled to have discovered Find a Grave, as it allows me to memorialise my loved ones and document the lives of other family members for posterity.
I am a strong believer that ordinary people live extraordinary lives. They are far more interesting to me than celebrities.
I have been very moved by the many stories that I have read on here. I enjoy reading a well-written and loving biography, and I admire people for being such a positive influence on those left behind.
Please take the time to check out a few of my loved ones, and flower them if their tales strike a chord. I will try to reciprocate.
I would love to make contact with any relatives of the individuals I have posted here, and I would be more than happy to transfer memorial administration to family members or friends. Please email me to facilitate this.

|Carol (Laflash) Vincent||Bracconier Family|
I was the grandaughter of Eva Bracconier Laflash. She raised me and I was very fortunate. She shared so much with me of her younger years of growing up with her siblings. They all loved there mother so much. They were a very wonderful and beautiful family. We need some of that back today. It wasn't easy for them but they loved each other. I know most of her sisters children. I was close with Rachel's daughters growing up. Would love to hear more of family, especially her brothers side. Only knew a few brothers.Very interesting ancestry. I'm also the oldest of 12 children. My father was Robert.

Hi Mary Jo,
You may keep the three memorials since they are related to you...
That's odd, hope nothing else bounced -- thanks for letting me know.
