|Bio and Links|
My cousin Kathy Surma McHugh had collected some Parker family ancestry information about the year 2000. In July of 2001 Kathy printed out many copies and passed those out to her two siblings and her 38 surviving cousins on her Parker side.|
It took me year or so before I discovered I had an interest in finding out more information about my ancestors. I decided to put Kathy's information in the form of a chart on my computer, so I could understand the information and relationships better. Then I decided that I wanted to add more names and information to the chart, including, of course, my mother and her parents and ancestors.
After I found a lot more information, then it became harder to find even more. So for something to do, I eventually created 12 more charts for various living and deceased relatives. They are posted for all to see for free on RootsWeb WorldConnect. A link to my chart is below.
In 2010, I started creating memorials here on FindAGrave. I also submit information to other people to add to memorials they created.
I very much want to thank a woman I have never met, Francine York, who very generously transferred the management to me of 17 Parker memorials she had created, after taking a photo of 17 grave markers in Old Oak Cemetery in Norridgewock, Maine.

Thank you for the time and effort you put into your work, Larry. I'm not related to Alice. I left a flower as part of the work done through the Deceased Gravers Flowering Project that Dympna took care of at the Forums. I haven't time to do that now but hope to return to it when things slow down.
|Azora D.||RE: Peter Trafka|
Thanks so much for the addition of the photo for Peter Trafka and the other documents you provided. We were delighted to see all of it.

Thank you, Larry!
It's been a long time since I've seen that photo. I'm not sure who got it when my grandparents passed.
|PatS||RE: Jenny Hillevi|
Wow! I hadn't opened the photo fully when I first replied to you, and Wow! Wow! What fun! I do genealogy also, and as you know, all information is such a gift. Thank you SO much again!

What a wonderful thing for you to do -- thank you so much for adding the photo of my mother in law to her memorial. The photo is one from when she was very young, most likely taken for identification when she and her sister came to the U.S. from Sweden as young girls. I hadn't seen the photo before, so it is that much more appreciated by both me and my husband. It's so nice to know people like you are out there!

Wow....thank you so much. That's really nice of you. I appreciate it.

Thanks a lot. The picture is wonderful.
|Tanya Reed Bush||RE: William S. Besson|
Sometimes a random act of kindness has a deeper impact than one could begin to imagine. From the very core of my heart I thank you for the gift of the photographs you shared of my great grandfather-in-law, but moreover you have given my mother-in-law a part of her family history she has never seen before. The true gift in all this is that my mother-in-law is in the final stage of cancer and she only has a short time left here with us. She was a very loving mother and a wife for the past 50 years. She was a dedicated grade school teacher for 30 years and has devoted her life to others. Your random act of kindness has brought so much happiness to a very deserving woman and I truly truly thank you from our entire family. I would also like to add one final notes as a photographer myself for 20 years. These photos are amazing. You are a very special person and I will never forget the unconditional act that you have done.
My dearest sincerity,
Tanya Reed-Ringo Bush
Thank you for letting me know!

|Georgia||Elizabeth "Betsey" Parker of Norridgewock|
I'm searching for information about the parents of Elizabeth "Betsey" Parker who married Asa Longley (my 4th gg). She may have been born in Groton, MA.
In your research of the Parker family have you ever come across any indication of who her parents might have been.
