Bio and Links
Bio Photo I started researching my family roots about ten years ago with the many avenues now open with online searches it opened a whole new world to me. Living in Alaska many of the records were not obtainable by me unless I traveled to the different states and countries.

I have been able to connect with family in America, Canada and Scotland. What a amazing trip it has been finding pictures of family members when they were children I never knew about.

Some of my family had taken pictures of head stones but they did not turn out. I requested pictures of some of them and there they were with in a week. I have found this to be a wonderful tool to have and bring my family closer to me.

If I can be of help for anyone looking for a grave in Fairbanks, Alaska I will do my best to work it into my schedule.

RE: Norma June Vallier/ Osbourn
Yes I found an Aunt who is a member of Ancestry.Com She is my mothers younger sister about 10 years older than me. I found my older brother Robert who I never knew about before we have had much communication. I would like to find out who Mrs. Jay Bly from Anchorage 1959 is. She was listed in my mother's obit as her mother. Im thinking maybe she was a mother in law. I have a copy of moms death certificate that Robert got for us. Thanks for any help.

Norma June Vallier/ Osbourn
Hello Trish,

I am John Lawrence Vallier. I am the 14 month old child in my mother Norma's Obituary December 18 1959 Fairbanks Daily Newsminer. Did you or any one you know my mother? Or maybe you might know Mrs. Jay Bly in Anchorage who was said to be my mothers mother. I appreciate any info you might have. I have been an orphan for over 50n years now and would love to know more about where I came from.

Thank you about the info on the trespassing charge, sounds like he might have been a rounder. Will check the web site out. If I find out anything will let you know. - Sue Armstrong

RE: David Choate
Good morning. I understand about health and not being able to walk cemeteries. Yes, David was from a very interesting family on both sides. His father, Gabriel Choate Sr was a former Texas Ranger, served in the Spanish-American War and one other. David was 1 of 10 children born.

His mother was also from a very famous Rainbolt family, especially her dad, brothers, Peter Allen (my connection) and brother Liberty. Others were also famous in their own rights.

I tried Family this AM to see if they Alaska death certificates but didn't find one. Is there a way that you search old obituaries, etc. Still working on his wife's info, not sure where & when she died, when I find out will either set up or let Rob. I may request a transfer from him, but will wait until I get more information. Have a great day - Sue Rainbolt Armstrong

RE: David Choate
I have sent some of this info to the contributor to be added to his page. I noticed on his bio that you had also sent him the same info you sent me. Are you related? I have also been contacted by a photographer telling me about the snow on the ground, I may have to take my request off, but I have no idea when the warmer weather comes to that area. Thank you for contacting me. - Sue Armstrong

I went to the cemetery last weekend in attempt to fulfill your request however, the office was extremely busy and I was unable to get in. If you call them and get the exact grave/plot number and location I will be able to easily fulfill your request. Please add the info. to the memorial, along with any other individuals within the same cemetery you'd like pics of and I'd be happy to go back. :)
