Bio and Links
I am on a journey for family history and knowing where it is that I and my family members are from. This all started as a project to pass information to my grandchildren and wanting them to know of their family members that passed on before they were born and never got to meet and to know where their ancestors hailed from. I believe heritage is important.
When I enter cemeteries to take photos of stones, I know there is a real person in there, whether or not they are still breathing. They were born, lived and passed on, leaving some sort of legacy, good or bad, they had a life and family too.
To hopefully learn something of what went on in their era, their lives in between those dates recorded on their stones. I know I once read a quip about how we spend our dashes (the dash between birthdate and death date). It's an important matter and I want to make the most of my dash!
I am interested in helping others with their research and photo requests as well. It is the preservation of life and memories and somehow helps us feel connected to those relatives and Grandparents we never got to meet. I love bringing that to life!
I am willing to transfer any memorials I have added that are not related to me. I feel memorials are best with their family members as there is a sentimental value to keeping their information and photos and links with those who share their tree.

Lila Lee Barton Hollabaugh, are you a direct descendant? I'm looking to share something I've found with a direct descendant. Could you help with this? LizaJean

Thank you Kathleen for adding the dates to Leo and Leo Jr.

I am not related to the O'Donnell family. I am helping my nutritionist find her ancestry. She is an O'Donnell.
