Bio

My mother started working on my grandfather's family history back in the early 1960s. As a curious child, she kept me out of trouble by me 'helping' her with almost everything from canning/gardening to family history.Now 55 years (really, when did they go) later, I'm on the FAG site. I'm redoing her work, but using census and other documents that weren't available to her back then. While she had my grandfather's mind, I have the internet.I hope to find all, or most, of my 'cousins' whether alive or dead. With will be hundreds if not thousands of people.While I will add memorials as I find them, if a family member comes forward and would like to managed their family, and can prove it, I'll gladly transfer. Family is who needs to take care of family, alive or dead. But I'm keeping my family, unless you are within guidelines.Now about myself, I was trained as an accountant, so I tend to be picky (sorry for those who I find mistakes). I'll try to be kind in my comments, but sometimes I forgot the niceties. Please forgive me, if I do.I'm about 4 miles from where my ancestors are buried, and I'd guess at least 1/2 of the old graves are family, or extended family. We've been in the same area since the 1700s on 1 side and only the 1800s for the other 3 sides.I'm also working both of my husbands', former and present, families which include IL, PA, VA, KY and TN.Main names I'm searching for are Hanselman, Davis, Borders, Ray, Laugheed, Poisel, Kinslow, Stone and a few others.
