I am interested in a variety of things. I have been very active with 4-H Youth, especially, with the 4-H Genealogy Project presenting workshops & being an Indiana State Fair Judge for 4-H Genealogy Exhibits. Former Forestry Judging Coach for 11 years. Active in local Democratic Party politics and Young Democrats. But my life passion is genealogy. I have been active in the Tri-State Genealogical Society, former Vice-President & President, Web & Blog Master. I am active in The Sons of the American Revolution (SAR) as a former President of the Ohio Valley INSSAR Chapter and serve in the Color Guard. I am the Indiana Society SAR elected District 4 Vice-President. In parades I wear a Revolutionary War militia uniform guarding the U.S. 13-Star Flag and often call the commands when we march. I currently serve on the Board of Directors of the Vanderburgh County Historical Society. As "Indiana Bones," I present a variety of genealogical & cemetery programs & workshops. Married with 3 sons and 2 grandchildren.
