I have been interested in genealogy and doing genealogical research for over 40 years, especially the Beetem, Sanders, Scott, Skaggs, Shanks, Chapman, Kibler, and Parcel families. While it's always exciting to find new names and dates, my biggest thrills come from discovering stories about my ancestors and learning more about their daily lives.
My family has been mowing and caring for cemeteries for over 30 years. My job is weed-eating around the stones and my husband has always teased me about working so slowly because I am more interested in reading the stones than trimming around them!! I couldn't begin to count the hours we have spent straightening stones and trying to keep fallen stones from disappearing into the overgrowth.
I enjoy photographing cemeteries as a way of preserving the history contained in them.
