Bio

I became interested in genealogy in the early 1990's and am dedicated to preserving family histories.

I am a member of the National Genealogical Society, the New York Genealogical & Biographical Society and the New England Historic Genealogical Society. I am also am a lifetime member of the Idaho Genealogy Society and the Edmund Rice Association.

I am a Mayflower descendant, have several Revolutionary War ancestors, and three Civil War grandfathers.

My biggest claim to fame is that my great-great grandmother, Laura LaDocia Ingalls Waldvogle Forbes, is the Aunt Docia that Laura Ingalls Wilder writes into her Little House book, "By the Shores of Silver Lake".

I have visited repositories across the country, conducting research and gathering documentation...from the National Archives to various (7 so far) State Archives, the Library of Congress to state and local Genealogy Society libraries, and of course, the Family History Center in Salt Lake.

I am a volunteer transcriber and arbitrator for Family Search. I have done quite a bit of volunteer research in the local (Boise, ID) repositories.

I have begun working Cloverdale Cemetery in Boise as a Find a Grave volunteer. I have friends (but no relatives) resting there.
