Bio

I was bitten by the genealogy bug about 25 years ago, researching the Goodwill family name. That research generated a book, Three Hundred Years in America. After a hiatus of more than ten years, I have regrouped, adding cemetery photo listings to my research activities. I retired from the Jamestown, NY Fire Department in 1992, and moved to Florida in 1993. From 1995-2013, I worked in the Pasco County School system, first as a classroom teacher for six years, and then as Instructional Technology Specialist.

I am now retired-retired.

2015 UPDATE: We've up and moved from Florida to Tennessee as a permanent (and next-to-final?) move. This makes us "half-backs" and puts us closer to family up North, but sadly, further from family down South.

2018 UPDATE: Never say never. We have now moved back to our home town, Jamestown, NY. We loved Tennessee, but love family more.
