Bio and Links
Bio Photo I was born & live in Central Washington State. I had thought that my family was small but that has not been the case. Genealogy has taken me places that I could never have imagined. My family line includes Kobernik, Daily/Dailey, Bishop, Krider/Crider, Monninger, Foutz, Southward/Southwood, Swearingen, Hainline/Hanlein, Miller/Mueller, Guy, Waggoner, Ralls, Hart, Drews/Drefs & Griep. My Kobernik line comes from Germany and the others mostly from Fulton Co, IL; PA; MD; & VA.
I enjoy working on my family but also helping others to locate their ancestors. In 2012 I took photos of most of the graves at Terrace Heights Memorial Park, Yakima, WA. (A few of the temps cannot be read).
Please let me know if anything needs to be corrected, transferred (if not my family) or removed. You have permission to use any grave stone that I have posted. Happy Genealogy Hunting!

William Vanderford
You can change this site for William and Ada Vanderford over to me. He is my grandfather's brother. I research Vanderford, Womach, Daily/Dailey, Nelson, and Bayless. I grew up in the Seattle area until 8 years ago. Thank you for all your work, it is greatly appreciated.

RE: Deborah Walkenhauer & Father
I thought her maiden name was Baumgartner. Thank you so much for the info! And I would love to have her father transferred over to my care, thank you so much! I grew up in Yakima, and then Moxee. I knew Debbie and her husband's family. I moved away after I graduated, and if I knew she had passed, I had forgotten it. Thanks again for the info and the transfer.

RE: Harvey Biggs
Joan, Thanks for the offer, but I am not closely enough related for it to matter. Was looking for more info on the family.

RE: Deborah Walkenhauer
Joan, were you an English teacher by any chance?
Thank you so much for the obit on Debbie. Where do you get your obits from? I've looked in so many places, but they all charge.
I just put in a photo request for her dad, Victor. You didn't see him by her did you by any chance?
Hope all is well!
