I love family history research and history in general. You can imagine my joy when I can learn about both all at once. I also enjoy reading, photography and most of all my family.
It was inevitable that I marry someone whose dad owned a sawmill because since our marriage, I have found many of my ancestors had sawmills too.
I can be found at my local family history center once a week where I love helping others with there genealogy. I was surprised to find that I also enjoy being a den leader even though my own sons are long past that stage.
Some of my genealogy brick walls:
1. Is Mary Ann Clapp, the wife of Lyman Simpson, the same Mary Ann Clapp who is the daughter of Adolphus Clapp and Hannah Pomeroy?,
2. Where in the world is Elizabeth Clark's parents. Thomas Clark and Anne or Anna Buck?
3. Is William E. Higby's mother Clarissa Sprague and not Martha Keith? I have found a marriage of Ezra Higby and Clarissa Sprague and Ezra's wife in 1850 was named Clarissa.
