Bio and Links
Bio Photo 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.

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.

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!

RE: Jenny Hillevi
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!
