Bio and Links
Bio Photo Hello, Welcome. I love working on my genealogy as often as I can. I started because I just did not know a lot about my family. So back in 2001 I began my research. I have found over 300 people in my family thus far. I have met some distant kin along the way with pictures. Very exciting. I have so much fun looking up my families past. Find many interesting things about them.

Dec 21, 2010: I just wanted to update my bio as right now I have found over 2200 people in my family tree. I thank everyone who has had a part on my journey with info and pictures. It is good to know where one comes from and how we got to where we are. I am adding to my tree often and know it will continue to grow. I hope to be able to help pass all of this info along to my children and so on.

I can't recall just what I've sent you earlier, so I'm sending URLS that show Nelson's Civil War data. I found these through MyHeritage search, so I'm ot sure if the URLS work for everyone MAX

RE: Graceland Cemetery Photo you took
I added the photo to this memorial, however I no longer live near that cemetery so I am unable to retrieve any information for you. You might reach out to Joan Shoffner to see if she is able. She does live in Sidney and created that memorial.

RE: Sultana Researcher
Hi Sylvia, I found my great uncle Nelson M Sammis listed on Sultana page, while doing a net search for him. I have since been told that these data sources are not necessarily accurate. I do know he was at Andersonville, and those men were generally placed on the Sultana when discharged. Sorry I don't know more. The Sammis family is from Darien and/or Stamford CT Max

Hi Sylvia,
Thank you for that added information for Effie. I had not seen her info in the cemetery and so happy to get it. I didn't know who she was married to until I say the tombstone information. Appreciate the extra effort on your part for providing me with this information.
