Bio

I have been a family genealogist my entire life or when my grandmother Anna Louise Hall Watts died in 1956. My parents went to clean out my grandmothers house before my grandfather could sell off items for money to buy beer. Along with my aunt Iva (dads sister) they were burning old photographs. I tried to save some, long story short, I asked who they were and thus started my keeping records of my ancestry. I have researched both my side of the family and my wife's side and presently have a data base of over 163,000 people both direct relatives and/or miscellaneous Watts data or allied families. I have collected a tremendous amount of photographs, also. I have told my children to send my research data to either Ancestry.com or to the LDS church for preservation and to share such research when I die. I am presently 78 years old. Findagrave deleted all of my postings for most all of my leave a flower messages in 2020 saying I wasn't suppose to leave such messages. Therefore i have over 30,000 more postings than what is shown on this web site, including my own parents, grandparents and great grandparents on both my side of the family and my wife's Evans side of her family. As of June 2019 I received and I am in the process of creating my family tree at Ancestry DNA in case someone wants to see my ancestry. Please note: I collected a great amount of photographs of family members and in an attempt to share and preserve them if I could not find their grave record here, I would place their photograph on the cemetery record of the closest of their relatives. All of my genealogical data that i had posted on this web site encluding my own parents, grandparents, etc., has been deleted by this website. Why?
