- Find A Grave ID
My mother, Evelyn Lindert, started genealogical research on both sides of my family in the early fifties. She dragged my and my sister, Carol, around looking through cemeteries and county offices searching for information on tombstones and birth, marriage, and death records. She wrote a short essay explaining her interest as originating in part from some 'incident' that occured in 1950/1951. She never explained what that incident was. But I discovered that when my father applied for Social Security benefits he didn't have a birth certificate and so had to have relatives certify his birth. So maybe that was the incident?
About 10 years ago I entered her research in Family Tree Maker and have worked occasionally on expanding and updating that information as time permits.
