Bio and Links
Bio Photo Researching my own family was such a challenge until my grandmothers passing summer 2010 when I found a wonderful fully documented family record book while packing up her belongings. She truely was a secretary as this book had so much of the family listed. I made copies of each page and documented each one here and on Even found out we are related to a movie star! I had no idea she shared this same passion with me, something I wish I had known beforehand. Never take each day for granted with loved ones, live for today not forgetting the past.. its how you became who you are.

That would be wonderful. I would be so grateful if you would post it to the memorial. I don't have a picture of his father John Houston, but his grandparents have photos posted.
