My father is the one i have to thank for getting me started on this website and taking pictures, his name is Lloyd Smith. We live in central Illinois, Getting pictures for people makes me feel wonderful. I guess i grew up thinking that if I help someone then maybe one day that person will help someone.... and then the ball will get rolling.
I currently work full time in a factory making steel tubing. I am also a volunteer firefighter and EMT. Plus i have two wonderful kids and a wife. So to say I don't have a lot of free time, but I will get pictures when i can.
Feel free to use any picture that I take for you for any family history sites, papers or what ever you need. I kinda feel the pictures belong more to you, the family than me.
