I'm from the Philadelphia area and am very interested in my family history... The main families I research are Hansell, Hicks, Bales Townsend, Fagundus, Willing, and Burn on my fathers side and Powell, Hamill, Gustafson, Johannson, and Irwin on my mother's. The Irwins came from a tiny village called Cloveneden in Loughgall, Co. Armagh, Ulster, Northern Ireland.
Currently most of my research time is going to working on my Hansell and Hicks family lines. The Hansells have been in and around the Philadelphia since the mid 18th century. The Hicks reportedly came from the area around Louisville, KY at the end of the 19th century. As I do the research I am updating family FaG memorials or using the memorials to update my genealogies.
I have created many memorials at Hillside cemetery in Roslyn, PA and at St Thomas's Church Whitemarsh in Fort Washington, PA. I am happy to transfer these to people who are interested. As long as I am not related to them.
PS... I LOVE to taking pictures of graves and posting them... once in a while I will post one one a memorial that already have pictures. If you HATE the picture I've posted on a memorial you've created then contact me and I will most likely remove it.
