Bio

My love of family research and genealogy comes directly from my older sister. We grew up hearing so many stories from our mother and her mother. All of this knowledge was recorded by my sister long before the days of the internet, as she spent countless hours doing paperwork, visiting libraries and cemeteries. This obsession rubbed off on me and we started collaborating together with the help then of some amazing internet tools. The precious history, facts and stories are just endless. We have extremely enjoyed having our DNA tested and meeting many family members we didn't know!

~Everyone deserves to have a flower and be remembered~

I will happily help anyone who needs a photo taken in my area, if I can possibly find it. Just ask anytime!

Be respectful, not a collector. Focus on quality, not quantity.

Maternal line names - Eaton, Kariher, Frank, Ruhle (Part of the Harmonist/Harmonite Society of Harmony, Pennsylvania), Bossart, Zundel, Klein, Crum, Krum, Krumm, Patterson, Kemmler, Walz, Martin, Poole, Millward, Benton, Johnson, McNees, Wimer, Robison, Hines, Van Zandt, Praa, Morrison, Snyder, Hogue, St. Clair, Irwin, Covert, Slover, McCormick, Wallace, Cooper, Smith, Boston, Albert, Bowen, Sheplar, Bane, Cahill, Taylor, Ellis

Paternal Line names - Kelly, Kelley, Deal, Donley, Mortimer, Johnson, Fye, Little, Conn, Klingel, Schulz, Muller, Long, Gregory, Nelson, Dunavin, Wood, Fenton, Vititoe, Younger, Mayfield, Johnston.

My major brick wall is my Kelly line. It stops with my mystery Great Grandfather.
