I am from Southern California originally, but I now call Southern Oregon my home. I use this site quite often, but I am now just getting around to signing up and getting a profile up on this site. There is a huge amount of work being done here!!! This site is incredible for lack of a better term. It is a fine place for all to research and reconnect families and friends, or just learn about history. OH yes, and pay respects to those who have passed.
