Bio and Links
Bio Photo I became interested in family history when I had my first baby, Sarah Coreen (Brown) Posz in 1978. It was much more difficult then, without the Internet and much more expensive. I wrote everything down on paper, used my SR camera to take photos of old family pictures, and taped some photos in a genealogy book.

I purchased a digital camera and have continued to take photos of family pictures and scan in old photos as I find them. I like that I am able to email the digital copies to my family so they will not be lost over time.

At the moment, I live in Germany and work for the Army (as a civilian). I own a home in North Dakota and have lived in Iowa, New Jersey, West Virginia, California, Alaska, Tennessee, Michigan, Colorado, Arizona, and in the country of Iceland. I have family in California, Utah, Colorado, Texas, Maryland, and Massachusetts. I am anxious to get back to the States and be able to take on a larger role, photographing gravesites where ever we end up living, vacationing, or while visiting family.

I am a direct descendent of the surnames Martin, Gerard, Fuller, Taylor, Wagner, Eddy, Wyatt, Baker, Arter/Arthur, Dill/Dillin/Die, Salver/Saylor. Other cousins (and dear to my heart) include Axmear, Montross, Bockes, and Reinier. My step-dad was a Brushe.

Hi, That is my Find A Grave # . I cannot send email out, but can receive it , so I thought I would contact you this way. Take a look at Della Jones in our Arter genealogy. I have just added a story to her and her son, John Arter Jr. I think you will get a kick out of it. Let me know when you see it.

RE: Transfers
Sounds like an ideal vacation! I am O.K. I just saw where I could find all memorials which I am in charge of all on one page, thus I was able to transfer to you all at once.
Take care, Shirley

Fred Draper sponsorship

I would be glad to transfer ownership of the Fred Draper, Sr. memorial to you if you would like. He obviously is special to you since you have sponsored his memorial.
I have no direct relationship to him. His daughter Hazel married my first cousin once removed, Lawrence Eugene Pence.

transfering memorials to you
Kathy, It just dawned on me that I must transfer those Arter memorials to you. I had just thought you could take them over, my brain is a little too slow, I guess. Will begin transferring today.

RE: Arter Genealogy
Kathy, So glad you enjoyed it. I am addicted to genealogy and sometimes my computer cooperates. I love to find "new" cousins.
