Bio and Links
My interest in genealogy was inspired by my parents who taught me the importance of knowing who your ancestors were and where they were buried. My parents spent years traveling to various states searching through hundreds of cemeteries locating the graves of our ancestors and creating a handwritten record of each grave which they passed to me. My parents instilled a love of history in me and my Dad taught me that death was as great a miracle as birth. My efforts to create a record for my deceased family members is dedicated to my parents and their efforts to locate our loved ones so their children would have an accurate record of our family.
If I may be of assistance to anyone searching for information on any of my relatives I will be happy to share the records and memories I have as well as transfer any records I have created that are not any of my direct family members or in laws. Blessings to all.

RE: James H. Simms & Louisa Simms
I couldn't believe I found it in a box. One of the two Aunt in laws I have sent me an envelope of pics. James & Louiza had 5 girls and one boy I think. I'm away from my computer. The Mary Elizabeth b 1879 married a Navy man and move to San Diego and never returned. The other brick was Phoebe. She was born 1884. In the envelope was a 8 x 10 of Phoebe!! With the date and how old she was at the time. It said Regina's Sister. With the other info I worked backwards. Phoebe is the one that move to Akron after she married and came to visit once!! I put the 8 x 10 on the scanner. Guess who's scanner is worn out! I was so unhappy! When I get those scanned I'll send you one of each. The one from California is a real small pic but I'll see what I can do! Glad you like the pic! I was thrilled too!

RE: Russell Simms
If you would like your Frank J Simms transferred to you I would be glad to do it. Also his wife. My Grandmother is Frank Simm's. I am still waiting on edits to be done so all of Frank's siblings will be link to him and other siblings.
I would like to keep Frank's father as that is my great grandfather. But also know that I am 70 years old. I can certainly tell my son that will be doing this after me to transfer Simms to you.

Let me know if you want it transferred.
