I am one of the many members of my family interested in Genealogy. As a little girl I enjoyed writing down all of my family members names and birth dates including cousins. I collected Funeral Cards and obits. I liked knowing everything. I started hardcore research many years ago while living in Florida even though I was born and raised in Indiana. I am now back in Indiana and can further investigate my lines. My father has been researching prior to me for the last 40 or so years but his interest goes outside of the US while mine remains in. I enjoy the interesting people I meet and the information that I find. I am a Mother of 3 and Grandmother of 6. Anyone wanting information on the lines that are directly linked to me can contact me through my message board here.I currently have about 27,000 names in my family tree, all connected to the Rock/Shockey, Loveless/Kerfoot, Thompson/Graham/Hulett Lines which connect together through my grandparents. Most of the memorials that I have added are related to me somehow, however I have added a few Memorials for local Tippecanoe, Clinton, Boone, Benton and Warren Co, Indiana cemeteries. If you find a memorial that is from your line just ask and as long as I am not connected I will do transfers. To me its not about numbers...its about Family! I believe that everyone should be remembered...whether they have a tombstone or not. I would like to eventually mark my family graves that do not have markers, even if its a small engraved stone...just something that says "Hey I was here. I lived my life and now I am gone. Do not forget me".PS. The picture is me at about 3 months. I was the first born granddaughter to Ina Mae Graham Nydegger and my dress said "Grandmas Little Sweetheart"
