Bio and Links
Bio Photo I am new to researching my genealogy and am totally addicted! It is difficult balancing a full time job, family, and a new favorite hobby! I find myself staying up late looking for that little bit of information that could answer questions and lead to a whole new path in my family tree!

*If I take a picture that you don't like, please let me know. I will gladly go back and take another.

**If I've added something to a loved one's memorial that you don't like, I will gladly remove it.

***I also don't mind looking up obituaries for Deschutes & Jefferson County Oregon at our library on the microfiche machine!

****I also make the occasional trip to the state archives to look up death certs. Let me know if I can find one for you. They have to be 50 years or older. So 1963 or older.

Feel free to use my pictures of your ancestors in your genealogy quest! I will transfer management of memorials who are not related to me.

Frank Mench #30930117
Thank you for your time and effort Carisa in locating Frank Mench. I'm surprised her does not have a marker inasmuch as he was in the military. Now that I know that, I can make the appropriate calls to rectify the oversight. I can't convey my sincere appreciation. Cordially,

RE: Thank You
Your welcome. I want to go back and try to wet the stone so you can read it. And if that does not work, try to do a rubbing of the front. with your permission.

RE: Willis Brown
I am not related, what I sent to you must have been something that I discovered somewhere while researching information for other memorials that I have in the area.

RE: Help!
Hi--I will be happy to look them up--but I won't be there until next week. We are helping a friend put on an auction this Sunday. We have been busy setting it up and then we will store the rest of her stuff at our house!! I finally cleaned out a bedroom--I had been meaning to do that for 2 years! When I clean a room, I CLEAN it to the walls!! I'll get them to you ASAP! Yes, it was nice to talk to you! It is nice to finally meet someone who has e-mailed me before. Thanks, Diana

RE: Mansell
Thank you for your kind words Carisa. No I'm not related. I have a microfilm reader at home and I spent a lot of time "reading" the early day newspapers and gleaning information from them. Trust me, I know about every horse thief and buggy accident in town. LOL. The newspaper then was certainly the Facebook of its day. Anytime I find something in the paper concerning a person, whether it be their death or other event (yes, even the buggy accidents), I add it to my pages. The things I find in the local paper would remain largely unknown if I didn't add them. Create a virtual cemetery and add her to it and then occasionally check back. She died in 1907 and it won't be long before I go through that paper. Surely I'll find an obit. Or leave a flower on the page and I'll try to remember to get back in touch with you if I find it.
Best regards,

Carisa. Sorry it took me so long to make the corrections. I have been out of town this week. I added the links and changed the wording on the bio. I appreciate your information and have made changes in my own tree
