I have enjoyed taking photographs for others to help in their genealogy research but only recently became interested in my own genealogy after the passing of my great-grandmother in May 2009 at the age of 99.
My paternal genealogy is mostly finished due to the genealogy buffs on that side of my family. Last names include Parrish, Atkinson, Wilder, Gates, Griffin, Taylor, and Bradford. They are from Massachusetts.
My maternal lines include Place, Belt, Brown, Trett, Bodine, Platz, Ripley, and Downing. They are from Arkansas, Illinois, Ohio, Vermont, Oklahoma, and Missouri.
