I am just getting back into the swing of things with my research and foraying into managing and volunteer photography. I have preschoolers at home though so it will be a bit of feast and famine on what I can accomplish. :)

My current meandering research includes focusing at the moment on Biles/Bealls/Boyles, Peckham, Sproul, Montgomery {one Mary b. 1800 - the proverbial needle in the haystack}, Ecklor, Taxis, Heit/Height/Hight, Bignell, Hurlburt, Miller, Springer, Granger, Hewitt, Gardner, Bigelow and Chaffin. These are GGGG-Grandparent level to me, but I have all of the names and am now substantiating details. These all land in Wisconsin, with meanderings including Ohio, Michigan, Pennsylvania, Iowa and New England. I also meander to Ball and Durham (Indiana and Kentucky primarily), which will be my next focus after this branch.

I am also foraying into my husband's lines sporadically (mostly Kentucky and Prussia) which include Swift, Embry, Spadie/Spoede, Duvall, Rudolph, Van Meter, and Payton. I have -very- little detail yet on these lines.

The brick wall that keeps me awake is Ninyon Biles.

We live in WI but travel to KY a few times a year.

I am looking forward to actively participating! I just recently had a significant number of memorials transferred to me, so please be patient if you reach out with questions or corrections.
