Bio and Links
Bio Photo I have been interested in my family since I was 5 years old, but did not start doing family research until 1990. I have been on staff at the Oakland California Family Search Library from 1991 to the present day. After I retired in 2010 I have had lots of time for family research and in searching for my family I have been many places in the United States and to England and the Netherlands across the big "little" pond.
I work with my wife to take pictures and visit cemeteries that she has entered over the years so together we have entered many memorials and pictures.

I'm a native Californian, born in the San Francisco Bay area. I have been married twice and have 3 children and 5 grandchildren.

I'm only human so as a result from time to time I may make an error in entering information on a memorial, so if you see one please let me know so that I can fix it. I want my memorials to be as accurate as possible not only for my family but for others as well. If you want a bio added please sent it to me and I'll put in the memorial.

Mark Swope
Dear Mr. Trapp,

Wanted to let you know how saddened I was to learn of the passing of Mark Swope. As an admirer of his mother, actress Dorothy McGuire, I feel so bad. Miss McGuire was so special ! I even remember seeing a copy of Life Magazine from 1953, with her modeling some maternity clothing before Mark was born. How I wish we still had actors of her caliber. My sincere condolences to you and your family.

Josefa Carrillo de Fitch
Your memorial #36725971 provides accurate info on Josefa. The correct DOB according to the Mission baptism record is 17 NOV 1810 in San Diego, California.
There is a duplicate Find A Grave #66955179 with a number of inaccurate details in addition to the wrong DOB and birth place. Is it possible to merge or eliminate #66955179?
Thank you for your assistance.
Linda Carrillo Stroot, 2nd Great Niece to Josefa.

I'm flattered and am glad to be a friend. I'll keep on snapping, cause I'm a shutterbug at heart.
Thanks so much,
Your friend,

RE: John Keith Clark
Thanks Bob. I'm going to put the info from both Find A Grave memorials into a single memorial. Having two separate memorials is somewhat confusing.

Did you know Daddy? Are you a friend of the family?

I wanted to let you know that I found a death record for Bristol Lockhart - Missouri Death Records- DOD- March 3, 1951- St. Louis, MO. The Lockhart family were neighbors to the Barnes family and also related via the Daniel family.
