Bio and Links
Bio Photo I am a 6 generation Oregonian and have been doing my family genealogy since the early 70's. Back then it took months to find out one fact, today with the computer that information can be found in the blink of an eye.
Only now it seems more confusing the first thing I learned back then was to document all my information and make sure the facts were correct. Now a day's people just put anything on the internet only guessing or by family stories, making things more confusing. I am now trying to set apart family fact from fiction to keep the information correct for future generations to come.
I love doing genealogy it's a real life a good book you can't put down the only thing is I will probably never know the ending or the beginning.

My memorials are family and a work in progress, adding to each one as I find family material and photos. I have traveled to Washington, California, Ohio and Pennsylvania doing my family research in cemeteries and historical societies. If you are family I would love to hear from you.

There is nothing worse than someone stealing someone's work, not giving credit to the original poster then pretending it is their work. Please don't be one of those people, and please don't use my photos or documents without asking first.

Family names:

I do photo requests and take photos while I am in the cemetery. I like to take more than one photo of the headstone, to give you the feeling of being there and seeing the surrounding area. If you would like me to remove any of my photos just ask.

Penny, thank you so much for your prompt photos. They were very clear, and I appreciate that you took separate photos as well as the joint one. Jane (Jennie) was a pioneer child who came by wagon train with her parents and brother to Oregon from Kansas. It's so nice to be able to tie up loose ends, and I appreciate your help.

Thank you for finding his spot and for adding the paper to show where he is. It is very thoughtful of you to do so. So sad when these young ones don't have markers. Money was tight. Thanks again.

Thank you very much for posting the image of Adrian Johnston's burial location. I'm so sad to learn he does not have a headstone. He was a family historian and a member of the Mayflower Society! Perhaps I can one day mark his grave. Thank you again for your time, much appreciated.
