I primarily focus my genealogy research on my daughter's ancestors and their descendants including Will and Newell families from Meigs County, OH starting from my father-in-law Lee Will, Braffitt and Mosher families from Middlesex County, MA starting from my father Jim Braffitt, Johnson and Hash families from Grayson County, VA starting from my mother-in-law Doris Johnson Will (parents William Hannibal Jesse Franklin Johnson and Pearl Jane Hash Johnson), and Cook and Blackwell families from DeKalb County, GA starting from my mother Dorothy Cook Braffitt.

I also focus on the ancestors of my nieces, nephews, cousins, and various friends including Southworth and Ross families from Caroline and Hanover Counties, VA (Clinton Hurl Southworth and Dorothy Mae Ross Southworth), Gordon and Cleaver families from Richmond, VA (James Waddell Gordon and Margaret Cleaver Gordon), Short, Bell, Hearns, and Terrell families from Florida, New York, Connecticut, and Massachusetts (David Henry Short and June Bell Short Gaige), McGee, Peterson, and Tucker families from Richmond, VA (Robert Carlton McGee, Herbert Cundy Peterson, and Mary Alexander Tucker Peterson), Thornhill and Griffin families from Upshur County, WV (Jo Ann Thornhill Will, William Francis Thornhill, and Flora Lois Griffin Thornhill), and Alport, Alpher, Pepis, Permut, and Replin families from New York, Texas, Colorado, and Oregon (Peter Alport, Renee Doris Pepis Alpher Alport, George Permut, and Freida Replin Permut).

I do obituary lookups for southwest Virginia, and I photograph and geotag grave sites near my home in Blacksburg.
