|Bio and Links|
|I became interested in genealogy in the early 1990's and am dedicated to preserving family histories.|
I am a member of the National Genealogical Society, the New York Genealogical & Biographical Society and the New England Historic Genealogical Society. I am also am a lifetime member of the Idaho Genealogy Society and the Edmund Rice Association.
I am a Mayflower descendant, have several Revolutionary War ancestors, and three Civil War grandfathers.
My biggest claim to fame is that my great-great grandmother, Laura LaDocia Ingalls Waldvogle Forbes, is the Aunt Docia that Laura Ingalls Wilder writes into her Little House book, "By the Shores of Silver Lake".
I have visited repositories across the country, conducting research and gathering documentation...from the National Archives to various (7 so far) State Archives, the Library of Congress to state and local Genealogy Society libraries, and of course, the Family History Center in Salt Lake.
I am a volunteer transcriber and for the 1940 census records, was asked to perform the duties of an arbitrator. I have done quite a bit of volunteer research in the local (Boise, ID) repositories.
I have begun working Cloverdale Cemetery in Boise as a Find a Grave volunteer. I have friends (but no relatives) resting there.

Thanks so much for fulfilling my photo request; I greatly appreciate your time and effort. Keep up the good work!!!
|Smallantique||RE: John Schmier|
I didn't notice that......thanks !
Thank you so much for posting the photo of John's headstone ! A photo is a much needed confirmation for a final resting place.
I had used my quota for photo requests so could request any more for a week. Did you happen to see John's wife Florence's headstone beside him ?

Thanks, Robin, for explaining the process to me, and for your wonderful assistance -- I had wondered whether it was accident or disease that had caused my great grand uncle's untimely death. He was the first of the adult siblings to pass away.
Are you able to find an obituary for his youngest daughter, Ruby Yorgason Hurren (#38862540)?
:) Thanks again!

How far back do those Idaho obituaries go?
I'd like to take you up on finding obituaries for my relatives and ancestors. What can you find for Joseph Soren Adam Yorgason (#61502676)?
Thanks so much!

Robin, our meeting was my pleasure. I'm also pleased to tell you I did locate the grave marker & am about to post the photo! The location was entirely wrong, but the GPS from the other site got me there (gave Cloverdale the correct location). Thanks for trying. Be seeing you! Tom
