Bio and Links
Charles V. Waid (Chuck) born in San Francisco, California, married his 9th cousin, Barbara L. Brown. We have 100's of Massachusetts ancestors.

Lived in Oxford, Massachusetts in the early 2000's, for 3 years just to document our ancestors, and now back in Bonney Lake, Washington. Have been doing genealogy since 1979 and full time since 1996.

My wife and I both descend from Lot Conant and Experince Mitchell. Both men coming to America on the "Ann" in 1621.

I ONLY maintain our families and their family members. I will transfer members of those families if they are not direct ancestors of ours.

We are always happy to share genealogical information about our ancestors with our "cousins".

I frequent thrift stores in the Minneapolis area and if I feel orphaned photos are traceable I try to return them to family for my cost plus shipping. Last weekend I bought 3. Two (3X4) are later copies of 1890s originals; the male pic is inscribed, "My father/ William Grant Rouse/ about the time he was married", the woman's has, "My mother/ about the time she was married/ Elsie Dora Wilson". She has a white blouse with a ruffled collar; he is dressed in white tie. The third is (4x6) a photo of them together later in life, perhaps an anniversary, he is wearing a suit, quite bald, and she is wearing a glasses and sporting a corsage.

As you state you only maintain family grave memorials I hope you are related and would appreciate these photos- or perhaps someone else in the family would. I paid $5 for them and shipping would be a dollar or two. I buy a small hard-covered children's book- usually about .79 at the thrift store- for protection and send them library rate which is cheaper.

They were with photos from the Harold and Bernice Nokes McConahay family of Nebraska, but I think that was just coincidence, as I see no relation between these families. Unless you know something I am not finding on Ancestry.
