I am married and a mother of three children and of two step-children. I am working on family history, and have found that a lot of that can be done in a cemetery. If any one comes across a picture I have posted, please don't hesitate to contact me. I am looking for family that help me tie together what I have, because I have hit a few dead ends. My father is Dave Balda. His parents are Frank Balda and Ruth Shepherd, her grandfather was a Duke. That is where I have trouble putting together the family. My mom is Elizabeth McDonald, her parents are George McDonald and Patsy Smith. Patsy father was James Oscar Smith, I haven't found anything on his family at all. He has three or four other children from a previous marriage I would like to find info on as well. My Granny was Oma Davis.
I have recently discovered this site, but always have enjoyed walking in cemeteries to find unusual tombstone, and to find history. If I make any mistakes please let me know.
