I have been into genealogy for about ten years now. My Uncle Joe and Aunt Catherine Ruffner got me interested when they did a Family Tree of my father's family. Uncle Joe is my Dad's brother. My very patient husband, Frank, stops at all cemeteries that we see when we go anywhere. We grew up in 'the boonies' in Brighton Township in Beaver County, Pennsylvania and we loved it!
We moved to Industry, Pennsylvania in 1968 and lived there for 32 years, moved back to Brighton Township for 5 years and have now been back in Industry for a year, since September of 2005.
