Born and raised in Macon, Missouri. Educated in western Montana.
I was raised by my grandparents on the maternal side (Maloney). I became interested in genealogy when my grandfather passed away in 2008 and we were moving my grandmother to a more manageable residence. We came across boxes of old photos and I began questioning who these people were.
Now that I have three boys of my own, I hope to pass down the family history.
The families I am particularly interested: Curry, Lucas, Maloney, March, Powell, Powers, Riddle, Teter, Zagaglia and Zuccarini.
IMPORTANT NOTE: I do this only as a hobby, just as 99.9% of you probably do as well. If I take a photograph that doesn't live up to your standard then let me know nicely and I will remove the photo if it's on a memorial you manage.
If I make a mistake (it's going to happen) on a memorial then let me know. I appreciate those who want to make memorials as accurate as possible. Plus, I have fat fingers and I type fast.
I'm not going to follow all the FAG regulations about who gets what. If I'm not related to the person then you can ask and I'll transfer the memorial if he/she was family to you or even a good friend to you. I'm not going to worry about where in your lineage this person falls. How would I even know? That's just people being silly and petty. I'm not here to collect memorials. I'm only here to help people find their ancestors and hopefully find some of mine as well. The main thing is to be an adult and be considerate of others.
