Bio and Links
I am addicted to genealogy and spend most everyday doing something to expand on my trees.
I live in Alberta Canada but have deep American roots in Missouri, South Carolina, Virginia, Iowa and the San Joaquin Valley in California.
I winter in Phoenix for part of the year. My father is Canadian my mother is American and is a landed immigrant here in Canada.
I especially enjoy photograhing cemeteries. I am very grateful for the many volunteer hours others have put in so I can have pictures of the headstones of my ancestors. As a way of paying it forward I have contributed to the Canadagenweb cemetery project and even got my husband involved.

RE: Mary Ann Wharton
Don't remember responding to you. I do not know, but I would guess she is, but it's not on Find A Grave and neither is her husband.

RE: Kenneth McIvor
Nice to connect with you Vicki. I have seen many of you McIvor photos on Ancestry. We do have a distant connection. I have sent a message via email.

RE: Susan McSwain
Merced District has lost one body in all the years I have worked with them, and very might have lost another. No one has perfect records. That was my next question - how did you hear she was buried there? If you find ANY proof of being in Odd Fellows (Merced District Cemetery) I would re-add her. It would truly be nice to have her listed. Don't give up!!

I am calling the Merced Cemeteries to find Susan, don't delete her, just leave her as an unknown burial for the moment.

RE: Potter children

I have seen the name used in other families.

I do not think it is an ancestors maiden name.

Just a classical name.

RE: Your transfer request
I haven't been in touch yet with the Germans from Russia Society yet, but I intend to do that.

I have been so consumed with my family tree,as well as Don's (German, French, Norwegian and Swedish). There is so much info out there.

Your transfer request
I have transferred Vic & Lucy's memorials to you, as well as Vic's parents. When it gets to Johannes & Anna Marie, they were created by someone else. You can contact Linda Asztalos (Bakke), Member #47233304.

I have retained our Deibert family members who intermarried and had children with your relatives. As you have probably discovered, Michael J. Deibert's 2nd marriage was to Agnes Kraft Wald and they had several children (and her daughter from her first marriage married a Deibert, and a Boechler married a Deibert, and...... it's gets a bit complicated with the inter-relations!

Vic had some brothers. I will transfer these to you also.
