I live in Ridgeway, Iowa County, Wisconsin. I grew up in nearby Mount Horeb, Dane County, Wisconsin. My hobbies / passions are genealogy, photography, gardening and crafting. When the weather allows, I like to tromp around cemeteries and find relatives and other people I know. I am most interested in my Norwegian ancestors and mine and my husbands German ancestors; with names like, Venden, Moen, Swiggum, Zwiefelhofer, Waterbury, Stroede, Mueller & Brunk. Also, I've been researching my step-grandpa Gammeter's family (Swiss), and my daughter's father's heritage. Unfortunately, I've lost some friends and classmates, too, so I've been looking for their grave sites.If you find one of my postings and find mistakes or have information you can add, please don't hesitate to let me know. I'm always hungry for more information. Thanx!
