I research the Meyers/Weaver/Houck families from Cherrytown, Huntingdon County, Pennsylvania as well as the Kleinschmidt clan from St. Louis, Missouri and the Sargents from Thayer, Missouri.

My late husband was a Tuscan, and I still make occasional trips to Italy. I have quite a bit of information on the Alibani family from Avenza, Italy due to the diligent work of Barbara Calani, who devoted years to her research and died far too young. Also of interest is my husband's family, the Nicolais from Castelpoggio (Carrara), Italy.

A special interest is the Kleinschmidt/Schmelen/Bam families of South Africa and Namibia. In 2014, I attended a reunion of these families in Komaggas, Northern Cape, South Africa.

Another ongoing project is the publishing of the many hundreds of letters that my grandparents and parents wrote during their missionary days in Congo. You can check out the progress on Congo Letters.

Happy to transfer memorials - just ask. I do want to know why though... and reserve the right to decide not to, if the transfer is outside the site guidelines.

You may use any of the photos I post on Find-A-Grave, as long as you attribute them to me.
