Bio and Links
Genealogy is a hobby to me. However, it is easy know you have crossed the line in the hobby category when you begin to photograph tombstones in cemeteries while you are on vacation.

I post these records to -- in a symbolic sense at least -- give something in return to the genealogy community that has helped me with my own research.

Please do not direct me to remove my entries because you entered the same ones years later. It represents my contribution to the site and prefer to leave it.
