Bio and Links
Bio Photo I have been researching my family lines since 1995. My first mentor, and someone to whom I am much indebted, was the late Col. Ed Schott. Ed, a volunteer at the National Archives in Washington DC, was a certified professional genealogist. He took a keen interest in helping me develop my research skills. He introduced me to LCol. Patrick G Wardell, author of several Virginia genealogy research books. In the days before internet genealogy, both Ed and Pat provided much guidance and assistance in helping me find and document many of my ancestral lines. Both stressed that just because some hereditary society had approved a family tree it did NOT mean that tree accurately reflected an accounting of that family line. From 1995-1998 I consulted Loyd Bockstruck, the noted genealogist from Dallas, Texas, about newly found documents pertaining to the Hastings aka Hasten/Haisten families from Southside, Virginia.
Except for two (Zerr & Winkler), all my ancestral lines were in America by early 1700's. Most were in Virginia several years before the Pilgrims' landing on a rock at Plymouth, Massachusetts.

I found a marriage record for Juanita and posted it to her Findagrave memorial. Her husband, Leroy Long Sweten is also buried in Holdenville Cemetery. I have made that link.
