Bio and Links
Bio Photo My researching of family began, after the birth of my grandson Max in 1997, when my daughter-in-law gave me a version of Family Tree Maker. As a child I always loved mysteries. I read my mother's Ellery Queen novels, watched Perry Mason episodes and my favorite board game was Clue. I always thought how much fun it would be to work as a detective. I guess, in my own way, I do.

I firmly believe that our ancestors deserve more than just dates on their memorials. It is because of that philosophy that I try to add as much of the information that is available to me. Thank you for either your help or your understanding when I fall short.

The surnames I am searching and recording from my paternal side are:
Gibson, Keller, Miller, Ploehs, Reed and Walkinshaw
& from my maternal side, they are:
Beamer, Cunningham, Nelson, Peterson, Park, Parke, Parks, Perrell, Snow and Wiseman

For those who wonder...
Why the number of memorials managed is higher than the number of memorials created?
This is due to some generous F*A*G contributors who decided to transfer some of their memorials to myself and others.
Thank you...
I feel honored to be one of the recipients entrusted to care for these postings.

Marcia ... my husband is related but he doesn't work on the family genealogy so I know he won't mind my transferring the memorial to you which I have just done. So sorry for the long delay ... I had surgery at the end of April and I'm just getting on my feet now.

RE: Another transfer & another thank you

You are welcome. I uploaded photos for Charles and Mary Green. George Weaver, Find A Grave Memorial# 148461610, is next to them. I hoped to see a relationship to Mary, but my search could not locate his father and mother. He is the only Weaver in the section.--Storres

Hi Marcia,

I have transferred Louise over to you. Let me know anytime I can help you with transfers.

I know how you feel about Beans. My husband and I have been rescuing cats for over 30 years and they are just like our family.

Take care, let me know if I can help you again.
