I am a 32 year old high school math teacher in Bloomington, Indiana. My dad is Alan Goodman and my mom is Monna Neese. I have an older sister, a younger brother, and two nieces. Both my parents have 8 brothers and sisters and so we have many, many cousins. I am using this page as a place to share information I've collected doing family research. Thanks to all my relatives (close and distant) who've helped gather and maintain our history and to all the strangers online and in libraries who've helped put the pieces together.
The links below lead to 5-generation family trees for each of my grandparents. The trees contain links to findagrave pages, to my family tree on ancestry.com, and to photos, written family histories, legal documents and newspaper articles.
