I started in genealogy about a year after my mothers death in 2007. What an amazing journey this has been!
I live in Oregon, and my interests are definitely in Iowa. My three sisters and myself took our dear mothers ashes to Iowa to bury her there with her family. It was an incredible journey back to our families roots, including seeing where her parents and grandparents were buried.
The surnames I am researching are: Davis, Quivey, Lyon, Fahl, Nelson, Grange, Hanson, House, Hunt, Merritt, Spikerman, Brickley, Ireland, Tallman to name just a few.
