Genealogy is a magnificent obsession with me. I love to help others find their families. I am married with 8 children. Glad to help and share. I'm very direct & upfront so please don't take offense. I blame it all on my ancestors so don't get mad at me for my shortcomings!
January 2022 New Update!
My family and I have had a time of it since last update! I Just am getting out of COVID but still alive & kicking!! I'm still licking some major wounds like I'm turning into a BORG! I now am the proud owner of a Titanium Left Hip; 5 Titanium clips in my Right Shoulder; & best of all A new Right Titanium Jaw (I'm a test subject on this one)
I just got my computer up & running but will be kind of a slow poke so please be nice to this old lady Gen Bug.
Sept 2019 Update!!
Back on my computer finally after having 3 surgeries in 4 years & an eye problem. Finally got glasses but I hate them. I am online once in a while now as my health permits. Getting older folks so please be patient.
Also my family still insists that my mom was half Cherokee Indian & so was her parents. I wonder if these tests are not all there is to check on Indian relatives ???

Our family has decided to do the Ancestry DNA test to see how much Indian is really in our background.
I got permission from my Uncle William Smith & submitted his DNA & it came back today & showed he had 42% Europe West & 24% Great Britain & 19% Ireland & 12& Scandinavian & 3% Italy/Greece but NO Indian showing up on him.
I sent mine in yesterday so I wait impatiently for the results. My mother is claimed to be Half Cherokee through both her parents. WOW!!! What a shocker Uncle!

I found out that I am 34% Irish & no Indian blood showing up. My younger 2 sisters were showing 88% Great Britain & another showed 84% Great Britain. My quest now is to see about getting the rest of the family. Unfortunately my brother John is in heaven so at least I got 3 of us out of eight kids done.

You may copy any of my PHOTOS WITH WRITTEN PERMISSION FROM ME or for Heavens Sake at least give me my credit for them! Thanks!

I do research on all my memorials as I can. I use Cemetery, Marriages, Death Certificates, Obituaries, Census,, & Bible records as sources.

All you have to do is ask if I have a memorial of your family. I will transfer!

I don't think its right for someone else to post several thousand obits and call them their find because they posted it first & then refuse to transfer it.
