I was born in Prince George's County, Maryland, spent my first 6 years in Edmonston before our family moved to a bigger house in Landover Hills. I graduated in 1970 and immediately enlisted in the Marine Corps where I served as an Air Traffic Controller at El Toro. After my discharge I worked several part time jobs while attending college. I eventually found my calling in the computer science field.

I volunteer as an EMT for my local rescue squad, volunteer as a 'foster mom' for a local feline rescue organization, spend hours restoring my 1880's home, landscaping, and gardening.

I started my genealogy research prior to there being even a hint of internet access, traveling to court houses and libraries all over Virginia, Maryland, Washington DC, and West Virginia. I traveled to interview distant relatives, pestered my close relatives, and wrote letters to those to far to visit.

The profiles I manage that list Maud Russell 1937 as the source are not my direct line, with the exception of Benjamin Siner, his daughter Frances Siner, and Eli St.Clair's line. I inherited Maud's paper research and felt an obligation to put her data in Wikitree, out of respect for all the hard work she did prior to the computer age and to provide a starting point for those researching their names. If any of these 1500+ profiles are your ancestors, I will happily turn management over to you. I have plenty of my own profiles to keep track of.

Most of my genealogy research is done in the winter now, when it's to cold to be outside playing in the dirt.

Hi, Cuz! Sharon

Hi Lorrain, I see that you DNA tested thru 23andMe. I have tested myself and several family members thru AncestryDNA and have uploaded to GEDmatch. We have a paper trail connection via the Pennypackers. I was wondering if you have considered uploading to GEDmatch? It would be interesting to see if we have any shared DNA segments. If you are interested or are already on GEDmatch, please let me know. Thanks. Janis
Thank you for edits to Rosa Siner. They prompted me to closely examine all the artifacts. Now I know that most of the tintypes came from Rosa, her family, and their neighbors, and that I had 3 more photos that showed her husband John.

Thanks so much for your prompt answer. It is fine to leave them. If someone else is also working on that family line, you may have saved them time.

Hello Larrain:

I was wondering if you had any information regarding Clizzie Limbrick's parents. She is my 2nd Great Grandmother on the Garner side.

Hi Lorrain!

Thanks for all your contributions last month ~ especially for cleaning up biography sections and adding sources! You and your efforts are very much appreciated :)

Thanks for the library material on Siner. That is probably where my grandmother got her information nearly 40 years ago.

I believe you are researching my family tree. My uncle was Charles E. Thayer, Jr. born in 1934 and my grandfather was Charles E. Thayer, Sr. born 1914. Let me know if we can share info. Thank you! Cheryl White Blankenship
Info I have on Rebecca South: b. 1802 KY to William Henry South & Chloe Brunt.

Her husband John Jeremiah Sinclair b. 1801 DE. Am curious as to the name change from Sinclair to St Clair. The 1860 census has no information on this family. They are listed in the 1850 census in Sullivan Co, Indiana. Regards, Dave South
