I am 50+ years old, and have lived in Gettysburg, PA most of my life. I enjoy computers, painting, and solving puzzles - one of my favorite puzzles is finding missing pieces of information in my genealogy research.

My direct family lines include: Schriver, Cool, Scott, Bream, Brewer, Adams, Dennis, Orndorff. I'm also maintaining a family tree for my husband's family that includes: Hess, Knox, McIntire, Miller, Rebert, McCleaf, Biesecker and Sanders.

In November 2012, I volunteered to be Registrar for the Gettysburg High School Alumni Association. Starting with the first graduates from the class of 1887, our membership has grown to over 18,700 alumni, including over 4,000 who have passed on. It is my goal to link them all together in a virtual cemetery and to honor each deceased alumni with a flower on Find A Grave. As of July 2017, I have flowered over 3,400 Alumni memorials.

When sending edits, please DO NOT send obituaries copied from newspapers. Please write an appropriate BIOGRAPHY, omitting living family members. I try to follow the Find A Grave rules (even though not everyone does obviously) and will not add obituaries as-is.
