I started doing family history research in 1978. By 1994 I stepped-up my efforts, and in 1997 I completed the National Genealogical Society's "American Genealogy" Course.
I take my research seriously and I create new memorials with diligence. If I have created a "Body lost" memorial for someone whose final disposition you have knowledge of, please share (including evidence) and I will happily update it.
I am descended from Orange County, Indiana, pioneers on my father's side. My mother's kin were from Illinois, Kentucky, and Ohio.
When researching my own lines I often learn a great deal about related families and others within their communities, so in addition to finding and recording my own kin's final disposition, I also do so for others. I like to link "orphan" memorials with those of family members, having an especially tender spot in my heart for children, young widows and widowers, and soldiers.
