I've had family located in Washington State since 1878 and have been interested in genealogy for some time now. My Grandpa Ed Bailey had worked on our family for years - way before the internet made it easier. I've taken and expanded his work and really enjoy the research involved.
Family names I'm working on:
VanValkenburg, Warren, Drabe, Stein, McCullough, Chase, Scott, Evans, Crisp, Simpson, Bailey, Boyd, Herman, Finch, Armstrong, Bruner, Frey, Erdman, Brann, Gengewehr, Price, Lind, Bond, and too many other's to list.
I have an account with Ancestry.com as well with an extensive family tree and tons of photos of my various lines. Please send me a message if you are interested in viewing my tree.
Also - THANK YOU to all who contribute photos and information - you have helped with so many previous dead-ends!
