Descendant

I have been interested in my family history since high school but did not begin researching until after college. My research was sporadic for a long time as it had to fit between family activities of three children. For the past twenty or so years of the forty of my research life, I have made it my main avocation. Finding the missing pieces of the family puzzle and the supporting documents is truly fun for me.

Digital Afterlife

Some may think it is morbid to publish thoughts on one's own demise. Since I, as most genealogists, have been searching for and researching the lives of dead people for decades, it is natural for me to think about my limited future. Thank goodness, at this time, I am still advancing in age but futures are all uncertain.

In the event of my sudden and reluctant demise, I want my work on WIkiTree to live on; therefore, I hereby give permission for all of my private profiles to be transferred to any of the following WikiTree members whether or not they are on the Trust Lists:
