I've been a school teacher, bookkeeper, office manager, management secretary and I'm currently a parish administrator. I spend hours each day researching family history (Surnames are posted on my web site here). I'm the mother of 1 terrific son (of course I'm saying that...I'm his Mom!), step-mother of 6, mother-in-law to 5, and grandmother to 16.
