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: Mary Decker
Guess I have no proof other than word of mouth of the Eimen family. I didnt keep records of every name change I made in my FTM file.

Laurel Grove Port Jervis
Hello, the records for Laurel Grove are held by the Minisink Valley Historical Society. They were very generous with their time and research when I contacted them about my ancestors in Port Jervis. They also have access to newspapers and other resources for the area. Good luck with your research.

Thanks for the transfer. No, we aren't in touch with Joe's kids. I have never met them. I met Jim, Sandy's oldest, in 1992. Sandy & Joe were living in Arroyo Grande then.

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.
