About Me

My Photo
Riverside County, California, United States
I am a native of Illinois and grew up in Wilmette, a northern suburb of Chicago. I have one sibling, an older brother. After dropping out of college, I moved to California in 1973 with my first husband. I married my present husband, Butch, in 1977 and got 4 children in the deal. They have gone on to make me a grandmother 24 times over and a great-grandmother of 13. Three years after I married Butch I returned to school. I got my bachelors and masters degrees in speech communication and was a professor in that field for 13 years. I retired in 2001 to return to school and get my doctorate in folklore. Now I meld my two interests - folklore and genealogy - and add my teaching background, resulting in my current profession: speaker/entertainer of genealogically-related topics. I play a number of folk instruments, but my preference is guitar, which I have been playing since 1963. I am a Board Certified genealogist and more information on all this, as well as direct contact info, is on my Circlemending website.

  2. Really lovely group of photos! And a Happy Birthday wish, too!!

    (Check the date on the second photo though. Should be 1916, I think.) =^)

  3. Thanks, Regina ... serves me right for trying to post when I'm half asleep (hey, I seem to live half my life in the 1800s, so it's a predictable error!).
    Lisa, so sorry about your mom . . . mine's been gone since 1994 (this month) and I continue to miss her daily.
