Update: February of 2024:

2023 brought internal infections I had to fight and now 2024 has brought me problems with my back that may or may not be Lyme Disease or any number of things (woo, more tests and doctor visits!)

I am still a full-time caregiver to my Mom who battles many health issues. I am a full time house-wife, all while trying to be a full time genealogist. Please, please, I ask of you to be kind, understanding, and patient.

I unfortunately don't have the same amount of time to devote to Find-a-Grave that I had years ago when I began. I still am active here and try my best to keep up with e-mails, but sometimes I'm getting 100+ in a single day.

If I do not respond to your e-mail in a timely fashion, please feel free to reach out to me on Facebook. My personal account is 'Brecca Mefford' and my genealogy account is 'Genealogy by Brecca.' I very much welcome new connections and will get back more promptly through that means of communication.

**Please -- I'm trying to cut down on so many Find-a-Grave emails in my box. A general rule of thumb: you can only link children to their parents, not parents to their children. If I have the parents memorial and someone else has the child, that someone else has to link them. Please try and submit your edits through the actual edit requests and not the 'suggest other corrections.'**

I am a genealogist (own and operate my own genealogy business), cemetery researcher, and local historian. I have 24 years experience (started in 2000).

Operator of Henderson KY Cemetery Research Group.

My name is Brecca Mefford. I'm 31 years old and I've been doing genealogy since I was 7 years old (2000). I have about 118,900 people in my Ancestry tree and it's growing every day. I'm on a personal mission to figure out how I'm related to every single person buried in Henderson County. I'm about 40% of the way there! :)

My Mefford's are from Muhlenberg County, Ky (and surrounding areas), but my Mother is a Blanford from here in Henderson County. My direct lines here in Henderson are Blanford, LaRue, Sandefur, Thompson, Gibson, Nally, Byrd, and more.

I really do have to credit the Gibson Cemetery (in Corydon, KY) with being the creation of my obsession with small family cemeteries. I've been infatuated with it ever since I first visited in the end of 2000.

My DNA is on Ancestry, 23andme, ftDNA, and MyHeritage. I'm also on GEDMatch -- I'm kit # A523391.
