My interest in genealogy began with annual trips to Oregon to visit grandparents, aunts and uncles. The stories told around my uncles' fireside in Eugene, Oregon, with my great-grandfather's mantel clock ticking away the minutes, were heard over and over until I began to check them out for myself. Once it was discovered that I had an interest in family history, I was given an incredible legacy of heirlooms and photos.
In graduate school I used research skills to track down ancestors on microfilm and in rare books.
In the event of my death, I desire that the Wikitree team assume management of the profiles for which I may be manager at the time. It is my desire that the profiles of living people should not be deleted.
