Bio and Links
Bio Photo I was born in Seattle, WA and have been doing genealogy research since 1994. My father was born in Sumstad, Norway and I have been to the place where he was born. My mother was born in Spokane, WA. I graduated from Bellevue High School and joined the US Marine Corps in 1960 and stayed 20 years. After I retired from the Corps, I worked for the Hewlett Packard Company in Bellevue, WA for another 20 years. I have 3 wonderful children, one lives in Canada and two in Washington State. I am currently living in Tucson, AZ and am willing to take photos or help with research if I can. Anyone is welcome to use any photographs I have posted or any bios I have posted.

J W Scott -- as he has on his headstone - - is buried in Mt Hope Cemetery in Baker, Oregon - - but the picture that was put on his Find A Grave site is of his son Walter L. Scott, who is my grandfather....

If you go to WikiTree I have profiles for each of them.

Hi Reidar, I posted the photo you have of Edith And Troy Adams on Ancestry and I received a message that the picture is of Troy Adams but not Edith Bustos Adams. The woman, according to her relative, Linda, is Goldie Dorothy Powell. If you would like more information and a link to Linda's page on Ancestry. Please send me an email. Thanks so much for all your work!! Sharen

Hi, you have a lovely picture of Edith C. Adams (68217957) with her second husband. She was my second cousin 2x's removed. I would love to place the picture on my Ancestry tree, with your permission. Thanks so much, Sharen Moon

RE: John Manford Holder
If you still have the Holder updates in your "received" file, would you please forward back to me? I deleted the transcribed article I sent you, thank you.

RE: Harry and Thelma Prater
I hope you don't mind, but I've transferred them to you. You should be the one to take care of their memorials, since I have no connection to them.
