I have been involved in genealogy research since 1990. My home is in Fairbanks, Alaska. I grow roses and pumpkins in the summer, and a small garden. I am retired. Our little Shih Tzu, Ginger, is 15 and I am hoping for at least another year for her. Note: Ginger died at age 15 yrs 10 months. We adopted a rescue dog from California, another Shih Tzu we named Bella Ginger. I am mainly working on our own family history for the following families:
Garvin, Herning, McKenzie, Riley, Ferris, Anderson
Mostly in Quebec and Ontario, Canada, and the Northern US, New York, Vermont, Wisconsin and west to the Pacific Ocean.
Clay, Shirley, Martin, Dies, Bowles, Cox,
Mostly in Eastern and Southern US states and the UK
