Bio and Links
Bio Photo I have been doing genealogy research since 2001. I love the challenges and the excitement of knocking down those brick walls. I want to thank all of the volunteers who do such a great job with fulfilling the photo requests. It makes such a difference to have photos to go along with the memorials.

In Dec 2012 I become a member of the Daughters of the American Revolution, which has been a goal of mine for many years. I look forward to becoming involved in my community with their projects which help support our local Veteran's Home. has strict rules about not copying other peoples photos as they are copyrighted material. With this in mind, I would appreciate it if you don't copy the photos I have posted without my permission. I have recently discovered some people have done this and then posted the photos to trees on without even bothering to source where the photos came from. This is discourteous at best. If you are going to copy photos without my permission, at least be honorable enough to say where you found them. The same goes for any other info you cut and paste from my memorials such as bios and obituaries. Just say where you found the info so others can be guided to this site.

Some of my ancestor lines are: Turnidge, Decker, Peters, Berberich, Claymon, Eden, Classen, Wirth, Irwin, Pennington, Terrell, Crowley, Fletcher, Connell, Atkinson, Glover, Curd, Vorce, Clarke, Russell, Letman, Whitton, Nutting, Lea, Letman, Boyce, Baker, Douglas, Rhea, Perkins and Griffith.

RE: Narp-Utarp
Hi Michelle,

I think I know now what the Narp-Utarp confusion is. Narp is actually a part of Utarp. It's not a separate town. I was just choosing the name of the place from the drop-down list and must have missed seeing that Narp was an option as well. But it's all good. :)

Thank you again,

RE: Rienelt Lahners
Hi Michelle,

Did I try to edit Rienelt "Reka"'s birthplace? I also have Narp. I thought that the March date was her birthdate and the April her baptism. But I could be wrong. My source was an email from Yvonne Prough back in 2006.

Thanks for all your work on these lines!

I couldn't find him that day, and it has been very difficult to get a response from Newark Valley regarding the layout of the cemetery. But I can make another attempt, and we will see what happens.

Since 1999...I spent hours on there, every day for about 12 years and have finally taken a break from it since last winter. I will probably return to it in the near future. It truly was a labor of love. I hope you find some information which can help you...feel free to copy anything I have.

RE: Lemira Ann Peters Talley
Thank you for the reply, but after I wrote to you, I found out I had the wrong "ancestor" - she is not mine after all. Between the brick walls and the same named people sometimes this searching is difficult. Just when I think I want to give up, I find someone. Thanks again for the reply.
