Bio and Links
Bio Photo I grew up in Roseville, Michigan. My parents bought the house in Roseville when I was about 18 months old. They lived in the house on Brohl Street for more than 50 years.

I attended kindergarten and first grade at Pierce Public School and then transferred to Sacred Heart School on the corner of Utica and Gratiot. I graduated in 1967.

I got my Bachelor's degree in Physics from the University of Michigan, graduating in 1971. I got my Master's degree in Planetary Science from Caltech in 1974, and completed my EMBA from the Peter F Drucker Graduate School of Management at the Claremont Graduate University in 1995.

I married my husband in 1972. We have lived in California, Illinois and back to California.

As far as genealogy goes, I am a "Roots Baby". Since then, I have become the family archivist for both sides of the family. My family has French Canadian, Irish and Eastern European roots. My husband's family has German and English roots. I have families from my in-laws that span German, English, Scots-Irish, English Canadian and Channel Island roots.

I am a five time past president of The Southern California Genealogical Society. I am an active member of the French Canadian Heritage Society of California. The SCGS Library holds one of the largest collections of French Canadian research material outside of Quebec.

In my spare time, I build Rose Parade floats for the La Canada Flintridge Tournament of Roses Association where I am a two time Past president. The biggest kick of my Tournament of Roses career was driving 2012 float, "if pigs could fly".

William & Cornelia Gilroy
Thank you for the information regarding their location in the cemetery. I have added William's to his memorial and put in a request to the memorial manager for Cornelia's.

RE: Clifford Smith 153895761
I have no attachments to most of the gravestones I photograph. Burkholder Church is situated close by and I decided that I would over a period of time, photograph all visible stones in the churchyard
When I go into a cemetery to do a photo request,I tend to take as many surrounding stones as time will permit.
So I will freely pass on Clifford Smith to you and will check if any other Smith are there

? Marriage of Sheats and Durocher
Hi Pam. I am doing some genealogy work for my cousin who is related to Henry Dale Sheats. I was searching Clinton Grove Cemetery where my family is buried (Helzer/Nagel) and found Marie E. Durocher Gilroy and a notation that she was married to Henry Dale Sheats?? I find no marriage record for them, do you have a record or dates they were married. I know he was married 1st to a Delia I. Lemma/Lemmon and then to a Hazel Dunsmore. Sure would love to shed some light on this.

Kindest Regards
Betsy H. Beaulieu

Lydia Sameck
I transferred her memorial to you. As your aunt, it was not a required transfer. You have a duplicate memorial for her that needs deleting, # 121838314, as Lydia Studenka Sameck. I am just making sure that you were aware of it.
Have a good day,

Would you add your photo for Memorial# 15207553 to her husband's Memorial# 138243411, since their crypt is in the same photo? I didn't want to just copy and paste it.
