Bio and Links
Bio Photo I'm a Family History nut, major type. My major desire is to find and list the truth and nothing but the truth about any and all of my ancestors. True it may bring tears to another when they learn a person they have followed relentlessly was actually adopted. Or if a family member they may not have known about now disrupts their boat. The truth within Family History research can certainly hurt at times. From me there are no apologizes in this regard. Family History is an obsession with me. I love a good mystery, and searching through the 100-150 year old history we deal with is sometimes like looking for the proverbial needle in the hay stack.
I become frustrated, exuberant, sad, and extremely happy within the same day of tireless searching the web for my proofs, and long lost relatives.
To me it is the "Book of Life" and I owe it to each relative to see that their name appears within any book that I publish.
I can't make it to the old courthouses any longer, so the web is my world. Boy how that has grown, and continues daily. Not nearly as much fun nor as good a smell as going through the dusty smelly old records in the dungeons of the many courthouses my wife and I have been in over the years. But I can go from California to Georgia in a flash, and onto Canada, to England, you name it in one single day.
So there you have it in a nutshell.
Oh, I still do play the bagpipe on occasion,hence piperclr :} :} :}

Message you sent me:
Hi Barb,
Hattie was my 3rd cousin, I have a question on her being married to William Henry Archer as the information on her marriage I have: Marriage-15 Nov 1899 Oakland Pottawattamie Co IA Hattie A. Woodruff b 1882 daughter of J.W. Woodruff married George W. Archer.
Either I'm wrong or a lot of other folks are, and sure would appreciate any help so I have my records correct.

My name is not Barb but she may be the one who sent me the links between Hattie and William H. Archer. Looks like Hattie and William H. Archer are buried in the same cemetery next to each other. You may want to contact Barbara Butcher to see if she can help you. I have removed the links between Hattie and William Henry Archer.

RE: Mary L. Mathews Stebbins
I have always found that odd, as the family clearly chose to publish their own names in the paper, and especially since the 2000s, we all know the newspapers publish these online and that the funeral homes post the obits to solicit greetings/flowers from mourners.

No one is republishing anything the family did not already choose to publicly disclose.

For me personally, I am motivated to work on my family tree, and this site, to find living descendants of relations I knew or wish I knew. Obituaries are essential for that, and I have already had several delightful reunions.

That's my two cents.

Why do you not like 2012 obits?

I am not related to Nora.

I try to put up as much information as I can find about individuals I add to Find A Grave from Forest Lawn in Omaha.

My hope is that relatives and friends can find their loved ones more easily.

You can place Leslie in Oakwood Cemetery in Traverse City, Mich. There also is Oakwood Catholic cemetery in Traverse City, Mich.
I have placed a marker photo and sent an edit to add the location in the cemetery.

Family searches
I was reading your profile page. You tell it like it is, There is hurt and heartbreaks looking for family history. At the end there will be finding one self, and of course happiness,
my family is looking for Andrew J Stephens and Ruth Bishop family line. We are stump who was Andrew J Stephens parents were. They were either in Indiana or Ohio. That is our needle in the haystack my family is facing.
By the way, I love the bagpipes.
