I was raised in Milton, PA. Lived in CA for many years with my first husband, Robert N. Hartman (married 33 years).
Married my second husband, Dale Froh. We now live in Port Angeles, WA.
I have one daughter, Brenda (Hartman) Smestad, and two granddaughters, Kalynn & Jennifer, living in Gilbert, AZ.
My interest in genealogy goes back to my earlier years. Fortunately, I had quized my mother and grandmother regarding relatives and they identified many of them in the old family photo albums. Grandma, Jennie (Wagner) Rauch, gave me the Snyder Family Bible with recorded names, birthdates and death dates.
Over the past several years, I have been contributing to "Find A Grave" website.
