I'm just an internet genealogy enthusiast.
My roots trace back from several lines to the colonization of Texas, both in the original German immigrants of San Antonio and New Braunfels (Hauck, Meixner), and some of the first families of Galveston (Joseph, Trueheart, Minor), as well as many migrants to Northeast Texas in the mid-to-later 1800's coming from Alabama, Georgia, Kentucky, and Tennessee (Bean, Turk, Gumm).
I've found genealogy facinating and more educational than almost any activity I've been involved in. Feel free to peruse the family tree - The Beanpod - on ancestry.com where I've followed hundreds of families back to the colonization of America as early as Jamestown and the Massachusets Bay settlements, the Scotch-Irish settlements of Virginia, and the Swiss-German Migrations of South Carolina.
Residing on the Texas Gulf Coast I am happy to volunteer for Find-a-Grave for headstone shots to nearby cemeteries. I live in the area of the original Austin Colonies and am gaining much knowledge and contacts locally.
Feel free to utilyze any photos I take in anyway helpful to you. It is done in the SPIRIT OF SERVICE. I do not feel it proper to claim copywrite on pictures I take of headstones I did not purchase, taken in a cemetery I do not own, of our loved departed I do not hold any power of attorney over - especially if I post on the public internet on a free volunteer site like Find-a-Grave.
