Bio and Links
Bio Photo I've only been at this FindaGrave biz for a short while. I used to put my cemetery pix on
a competing website a while back and (gasp!) found that people would actually
copy my pix, claim 'em as their own and put 'em on THIS website.
Mixed emotions about that.
I did the work, they get the credit.
I've been dubbed the Official 'DirkTracy' of the Selfridge Family for the past several years, back
when I had the stamina (and free phone access) to work into the wee hours, foraging the internet, tramping distant cemeteries, looking for seldom-known facts and figures of our family, bothering far-flung librarians, elderly historians, village clerks, newspaper archivists, and other irritable sorts, squeezing info and numbers from them and by now, I think I've gathered enough information to publish it.
But I owe most of the credit to cousins Hank Selfridge of Tucson, AZ, Anna B. Selfridge, Lima, OH and Jennifer MacLeod of NJ for supplying me with stuff to work with and pointing out my
little 'typos' and the like.

I'm tired.

Whatever information you might need about the
Selfridge name, ask and I'll see what I can scare up for you. I've got PA, MI, KS, WA and CA connections to tap for info, if needed.

While I'm 'snowbirding' up north though, I'm open to the occasional pix-tromp through a cemetery in the North and Central New York area.
But here in Florida? No way.

RE: Cora Ingles Hoysradt;
Thanks for the heads up on Cora. I have reconnected her son as her son, hopefully fixing the damage to their reputations

RE: The Shurtleffs & Selfridges
You are a delight. Oh, the mud cakes we could make? I am just a history freak, tis horribly addicting. Drambuie. That hits the spot. I actually turned down and offer for a tour of the Drambuie factory last Sept in Scotland, can you imagine? I do love accuracy and facts, tis my Mum, its all her fault.
