Bio

PLEASE Don't ever put our name and or volunteer number as a source of who you got information from. We always source information ie. newspaper with date etc. This is not about the volunteers it is about the person on the memorial.

Genealogy is a passion. I first became interested in family history after my mom died at the age of 51 and I realized I knew little about either side of my family. I found a single piece of paper which was all that had been documented about my heritage. It did however claim I was related to General Sherman and Alexander Graham Bell, the latter I have yet to prove. It also said I had a relative that owned a circus, with help from so many this has proven to be true, many of my Sherman family worked for the Sherman Circus and my gg uncle owned it. All Sherman's are of interest to me. Each piece of the puzzle peaked my interest more. I research every day sometimes my family more often others, all fascinating. Bill became interested soon after when we found so much new information about his family through our research. Together we document our families, and other families as well, along with cemeteries, which can net a lot of information and can be lost to time if the information isn't documented.

Research Books We own and will do look-ups:
Sherman Directories, A 4 Volume set of Sherman Ancestry in America.
El Dorado County, CA Cemetery Book
Solano County, CA Cemetery Book
Sonoma County Cemetery Book
