(Last name is pronounced Zook-er-man)

I have been researching since 1995. After my father passed away I felt a need to learn more about my family and heritage. I have a number of books and documents concerning my various family lines and the locations they have lived in. I do research just about every day. I hope one day to do research full time. I can be a bit obsessive with my research! I hope thru WikiTree to build a clean family tree full of sources and maybe break thru my 20 year brick wall of the parents of Thomas Beckett, my great, great grandfather.

I am a single parent to two teenage daughters who are my world and keep me young. We have 4 dogs (Lucy, Pepper, Rufus and Sasha), two former feral cats, Zorro & Bright Eyes and a Siamese cat named Dancing to the Music. When I'm not doing genealogy, I work for a DOE lab in Newport News, VA as an electrical designer. I'm also afternoon caretaker of a feral cat colony of about 15 cats which has earned me the nickname of "crazy cat lady".

Since my Mom passed in March 2016, I've discovered 3 half siblings. Al was the first one and I found him three months after Mom passed. He is my Mom's son and is 19 years older than me. To say I was shocked, is putting it mildly! Linda was my next one and she found me in April 2018. She is my Father's child and was born a month and a half before me. Our "baby" sister, Larona found us in June 2018. She is 7 years younger and also my father’s daughter. In the past two years, I went from a lonely, only child to a middle child with three half siblings. My sisters and I bonded quickly and are looking forward to meeting. Unfortunately the same is not true with Al. He couldn't care less that he has a biological sister and says he's too old to invest the time in a sibling.

that is too bad about your brother. He is probably carrying around a bit of baggage.

Even so I would still stay publically available, his kids ( if he has any) may have an entirely different opinion about things and may want to know you and your kids. I hope they do and your story has a wonderful new chapter to tell.
