When my mother died in 1999 all of the family photo albums moved from her closet to mine. Many of the photos stirred memories; some did not. The pictures of people I didn't recognize inspired some ancestor research. The information I uncovered fostered this site.
The purpose of this site is to give my children and grandchildren a look inside my "closet." The computer can make old photos come to life - and give us a place to save the stories they tell.
As a genealogist, I am a rank amateur. Most of my information is from secondary sources, but I do have some primary source data. Much of that data was graciously provided by others - please see the Acknowledgements.
If you have questions about anything you see here, or have more stories to offer, please send an email through the link below. Be sure to mention a family name in the subject line, so you can tiptoe past my spam filter. Copies of primary source data, GEDCOM files, my address and phone number are available on request.
