Hello, My name is Dave Savage I was born on the 19th of November in the year of 1960.* I am coming to you from the great town of Chico in Northern California, USA. I was born to Argyle Wayne Savage and his wife, the beautiful Lucile Elizabeth (Rose) Ransom. Yes, that was a Savage marrying a Rose and here comes me and my brother S arriving to help make the world a better place (ha ha). I started off my life at the Letterman Hospital on the Presidio Army Base in San Francisco. They turned it into a mental hospital the next month (nothing of my accord). I lived in Eureka California for the first 5 years of my life, my parents divorced and my mom moved us down to the town of Chico, California where I have enjoyed my life ever since. Chico is a great town where you can walk down the street enjoying the sun under the many beautiful trees around town. We have great schools including Butte College where a gentleman named Aaron Rodgers attended and Chico State College which was just recently voted #13 nationwide as the best college to attend. I attended Butte College where I received my Administrative Assistant Degree in 2008. I have been into the world of cooking having been a cook at various venues from the early 1980's until 2005. I worked as a caregiver for my mom and I call him my "Uncle Roy" since the summer of 2012, unfortunately, my mom left us on Christmas night of 2015 and we lost our "Uncle Roy" on July 23, of 2018. It's a job I never thought I would be doing, it takes a 24/7 shift but the rewards were so worth it. During the 1970's and 1980's I had the great enjoyment of helping my Uncle Larry Rose on his race car at the Silver Dollar Speedway every Friday night, hanging out the last year watching the races and talking cars with a guy I knew as Jeff. It wasn't until watching Nascar the next year this Rookie named Jeff Gordon came on the scene did he suddenly have a last name. Yes, I'm a Nascar fan and a 49er fan all the way but that doesn’t keep me from watching a good football game. Around the Millenium of 2000, my family had the greatest surprise when my mom answered her phone and had a girl on the other end asking her about our family's medical background, she was my sister Adena. We all met up with her at a restaurant and shared our lives with each other. Three months later my brother S. and I had the great privilege of walking our sister down the aisle and giving her away. What a beautiful experience. Thank's Dad and our new family. As far as genealogy goes I really love helping out making a families history come to life, busting down a brickwall along the way. I'm going to cut it short for now but I hope to meet some of you along the way. Take care for now. Dave Savage

You may have been hard at work getting connected to family members who are already here and adding those who were missing. You probably have at least a few profiles that you manage now.
There's a fast and easy way to access those profiles using the Watchlist. So, this week we're going to look at How to Manage Your Watchlist.
