Welcome

Hi, Cousin! One of the things I love most about genealogy is discovering my connections to family members I've never met, and reconnecting with family members I haven't seen for a while.

I also love the opportunity to help expand the global family tree, so every once in a while, as time allows and the mood hits me, I create profiles for notables who haven't yet been connected. The most recent such profile I created was for Octavia Butler. Butler was a fabulous science fiction author. The first African American woman to gain prominence as a science fiction writer, she won multiple Hugo and Nebula awards for her work. She was also a recipient of a McArthur Fellowship, an award that the John D. and Catherine T. MacArthur Foundation provides as an investment in the work of particularly promising creative people; she was the first science fiction author to receive such an award. All in all, she was an amazing woman. If you think you can help to extend her genealogy, please let me know, so I can add you to the trusted list for her and her ancestors.

Biography

The short version

Pamela D. Lloyd was born to a witchy alien fortuneteller and a mad scientist. A sock salesman once tried to buy her in exchange for two suitcases of socks and they were later offered an entire house, but her parents, not knowing when to cut their losses, held out for more, only to get stuck with her. It’s no wonder she turned to writing fantasy and science fiction. It was either that, or take over the universe, and the keys to the spaceship had fallen down a rabbit hole.

Comments about the short version

As strange as it may seem, this bio is actually pretty accurate. My mother suffered terribly from allergies and often claimed that these were due to her being from another planet. She also, for friends and family only, read tea leaves, earning her the nickname Madame Luigi, and my father printed up a certificate for her that identified her as our family's official resident witch. My father, on the other hand, is an organic chemist. He's also quite a character, very eccentric in his own way, and so has earned, to my mind at least, the approbation mad scientist.
A sock salesman really did approach my parents, on the streets of Chicago, with a suitcase full of socks and offer to buy me; when my parents turned him down, he said he had a second suitcase (the two making up his entire inventory) and would give them both. Needless to say, they turned down this offer, as well. While my parents thought this a funny story, I find it quite intriguing, and often wonder if he ever found a child whose parents were willing to take him up on the offer.
When I was two months old, we moved to Lake City, Florida, where, while house shopping, they were offered a house. My father has commented that it was a very nice house, far better than they could otherwise afford. But, once more, they turned this offer down.
I, now, among a variety of other occupations (genealogy being only one of several interests) write speculative fiction. Taking over the universe doesn't really hold much appeal for me—too much work! But, I wouldn't mind taking a ride on a spaceship or falling down a rabbit hole!

To-Do List

I've created a Free Space To-Do list, Pamela Lloyd's To-Do List, using the new To-Do list creator. This was my first Free Space page.

P.S. I'm connected!


Almost all my connections to random people (that is, people with any fame or notoriety) are through my father (Lloyd, Herrington, & Boykin, mostly). I simply haven't got enough information about my mother's family, although I'm working on that. More records are being made available through the internet every day, which is helping.

Check out your connections!

Hi Pamela,

I would be thrilled to be their profiles managers. But I would also be happy with being put on the Trusted list. I have Mildred Loving's father, but it will not let me attach him to her because of the project protection.

Thanks, Jourdi

Hi Pamela,

Thank you for the invitation to join the Lloyd One Name Study with adding Thomas. I must admit that I am wondering how my ancestor, Gwenillian Thomas, could be his daughter. That is what the records show on Ancestry.com. Sandra

Pamela, Thanks so much for data and sources you added to James Craun of john Albert Craun, the brother of Elizabeth (Craun-18) Green. I would welcome any more sources you may find for John Albert or his Ancestors, not to mention the Green Elizabeth married. I have the marriage source BUT still do not have proof of where Edward hailed from or if one of their sons was my Ira Green-11251. Thanks again for your input.
