Bio and Links
Bio Photo I have been researching my family on and off since about 1999, getting more involved in 2013. I'm originally from California, and many extended family members were buried there in the San Joaquin Valley, making it difficult for me, now living in Florida, to visit cemeteries to get data, photos, etc. For that reason I'm very appreciative of the volunteers who are doing these memorials and taking photos for people like myself.

I like to fill in the blanks, whenever some information is missing on an individual (such as dates of birth or death, birth location, etc.). It's a challenge, and I enjoy that.

I'm retired Air Force, and besides working on genealogy, I love to cook, bake, eat, and visit family...not necessarily in that order. :)

Hello Vicki,

I found the newspaper article. It is on the memorial now.

The church marriage record is not available to me, yet.

The city directory is not available to me, yet.

The family tree is not available to me, either, it is marked private.
Without looking at its sources, it has little value.

Antone Cardoza is a bit of a mystery, so far.

I don't have a lot of confidence in the edits. Can you help?

Hi Vicki,

Thanks for the email about the death date for Elizabeth Morse. You are so right, dates back then didn't always jive, I did change the death date to 1655. I tried to respond to your email but it didn't work.

Best regards,

I will be happy to make the edits requested. Please provide a source for each of the edits. I make no edits that cannot be backed up by a source/proof.

Thank you

Benjamin Franklin Thompson

I don't have time right now to answer all your questions. I'm sorry but I can't recall where I found the information on Benjamin F. Thompson. I'm sure it came from different sources, mainly from the censuses,,, and, as well as posts found by googling his name in quotes with and without his middle name or middle initial.

He was a very distant relative.

Henrietta Guggisberg (nee Todd), wife of Walter Guggisberg
hi again Vicki

guess what, I tried to update the correct full name, birth date/place and death date/place for Henrietta - as well as create a monument for Walter also create one for their daughter Nina whom I also knew and from whom I had received about 30 years ago a tin type photo of her Dad dated 1877 - he was an infant on it

Are you related to this family ? I knew that neither Nina nor Archie had children, but Bill Guggisberg in Sarnia had a son and a daughter - I knew them and visited them at their home. The daughter, Heather, lived in San Francisco - she died very young of cancer. Bill and his wife Marjorie in the 1978 visited Switzerland where the Guggisberg family originally came from. I had arranged at the time that they were met and hosted by relatives during their visit.

best regards
