In all of us there is a hunger, marrow deep, to know our heritage, to know who we are, and where we have come from.
Without this enriching knowledge, there is a hollow yearning, no matter what our attainments in life; there is a most disquieting loneliness.

MISSION STATEMENT: To share genealogical information in the hopes of making other members of our family as obsessed with the lives of our ancestors as we have become.
I was born and raised in Tacoma, Pierce County, Washington; now living in Oklahoma City. I am the 5th child of seven born to Dorothy née Lester. I have a Bachelor of Science degree in Funeral Service with a minor in natural science from Central State University in Edmond, Oklahoma. I spent many years employed as a License Funeral Director/Embalmer. After a career change; I finally retired from Department of Human Service, and now have time to search ancestors. I believe when searching ancestors it is important to follow them from birth to their final resting place. I am a photo volunteer for FAG.
Family Historian My sister, Alice spent many years researching, documenting dates, places, photos, and events of our large family members and branches of; Lester, Long, Vinall, Turrell, Hart, Keck, Warren, Kane, Madden, Blessing and her Sampair family. She is our Family Historian for over 40 years.
Thank You! My sincere appreciate and thank you to the FAG Photo Volunteers; who took time out of their day, to help a total stranger fulfill my photo request.
Addicted Genealogist You know you're an Addicted Genealogist when you hyperventilate at the sight of an old cemetery, if you'd rather browse in a cemetery than a shopping mall and if you'd rather read census schedules than a good book. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
