I started this journey back in 1986 in HS, with a family tree assignment. My grandparents, Mom, and Dad all helped me to build the first steps in what would be my genealogy path. It wasn’t until 2012 that I really got the bug! I was triggered to find out how long ago my great grandparents had come to my community. I had held on to that HS assignment, and that page was all I needed!

Now, I’m nearing 8000 in this giant jigsaw puzzle, which is my family tree. I take great pride in maintaining my family memorials, from my grandparents, to distant cousins. I want to link and document as many as possible. If I have incorrect information, feel free to suggest edits. If you would prefer to maintain yourself, I am open to transferring, but I just ask that we can work together if future edits, links, or BIOS are needed.

This is a labor of love, and I would personally like to thank ALL contributors for their dedication and hard work, and for the countless edits and transfers you have done for me! I look forward to giving back as much as I possibly can!

Please use the "Edit” tab (old format), or “Suggest Edits” key (new format), if you have information that needs to be added . If you would like a BIO posted, please select “Any Other Corrections”, and it will message me your request, which I will copy & paste.

If editting is not enough, and you would like to manage, I am open to transferring. I do prefer to keep my family members, or those connected to them that I have done extensive research on, but I am open to it. I have only been asked once or twice, and did oblige. If it happens to be someone that is also your family member, please contact me via email or suggest other edits, and let’s work together to honor our kin! I just ask that my work not be altered unless it is incomplete or incorrect. Please include your Find A Grave ID #, relationship to the individual, and that you would like this memorial transferred to you.

I think it's selfish for people to take possession over a photo taken, so please feel free to use any photos that I post!!
