Hi Everyone!! My name is Tammy Gephardt. I stumbled across this site while beginning my work on my Family Tree. I have discovered this recent passion to find out where I come from.
Some of the names I am researching are Gephardt, Standiford, Mueller, Schrauth, Keller, Hechter,(Researching my Hechter line out of respect for my Great Aunt) Burton, (my line of Burton's come from Burtonsville, Maryland),Duvall, Cooper, Downey, Tracey/Tracy, Rosier, Norfolk, Bowen, Beck. This is just what I can remember off the top of my head.
I'm into my 4th full year of working on my Family Tree. I have found it very fascinating to find out where I come from and who I come from. I have discovered along my journey that I come from strong people. I am enjoying my journey as I continue my search and find more and more family members. As I was once told, Your Ancestors are just waiting to be found.
I gave my parents the wonderful gift of our Family Tree Christmas Morning 2014. It has been a project that I have poured my heart and soul into. While at times it's been frustrating I have found it extremely rewarding too.
In June of 2016 I took my 1st ever solo Genealogical adventure trip to Maryland. I have to be honest and say it's the best thing I have ever done. I would encourage anyone doing Genealogy to take a trip to where their Ancestors lived.
My 2nd Trip took place in June 2018 again to Maryland. I saw many family members and had a great time along the way.
My 3rd Trip was postponed due to Covid, as I was suppose to journey to Maryland in 2020. My postponed trip was well worth the wait. My 3rd Trip was June/July 2021. During this time, I saw many family members again, did things that I hadn't done before, and managed a couple of days research in the MSA.
I look forward to yet another trip in maybe 2023 or 2024. We will see what life looks like then. Until then, I encourage each of you to get out and find your Ancestors. You never know what you will learn that you didn't know already.
I wish each and every one of You who are searching much luck in finding your Ancestors. They are out there...just waiting for you to discover them!!!
******The Only Memorials that I have are Family Ancestors. I Will Not Transfer Any Ancestor That Is In My Family******
********ANY PHOTOS UPLOADED TO ANY OF THE MEMORIALS THAT I CREATED OR WERE TRANSFERRED TO ME, PLEASE ASK ME BEFORE YOU USE THEM ON PUBLIC SIGHTS! I HAVE FOUND PHOTOS ON ANCESTRY THAT I DIDN'T GIVE PERMISSION TO BE PUBLIC! A GREAT DEAL OF THESE PHOTOS WEREN'T TAKEN BY ME, BUT BY SOMEONE ELSE EITHER FOR ME, OR BY THE PERSON WHO CREATED THE MEMORIAL! I'D RATHER HAVE PERMISSION FROM THE PERSON WHO TOOK THEM********
