I have worked on my family trees and others for over 30 years. My current interest is in Schoharie County NY history, more specifically the town of Summit where I live. I compiled, published and printed books on Schoharie County One Room Schoolhouses, The Schoharie Alps Town of Summit History, Murders and Funky Stuff in Schoharie County, Schoharie County Emergency Medical Services, Schoharie County Clubs & Lodges etc. and Spanish American War Veterans with connections to Schoharie County. If interested in purchasing any of them please let me know.
I recently completed my book "Women Who Paved the Way at the turn of the Century in Schoharie County" and Schoharie County Poorhouse/Almshouse and it's Residents both are available through me or on Amazon. My next book will be Leatherstocking Area Interesting Stuff including prohibition and CCC camps etc.
I got started taking pics of grave stones in looking for Civil War Veterans monuments. Now I take pics of any grave stones with an emphasis on all Veterans. I can spot a Span-Am flag holder in a cemetery from yards away.
My goal is to preserve any piece of history I can get my hands on, particularly in light of how much was lost in our area during Huricanes Irene & Lee.
