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.

L. Roy Wilcox, PhD - Autobiography, Part 3

INTRODUCTION: PART 1

As indicated, this part deals in narrative fashion with “eras,” the number of which I have arbitrarily chosen as 11. They are unequal in time – length, two very short as two years, and one as long as 25 years.

In general, the early eras are the short ones, since in developmental changes they occur more rapidly than later. A listing follows:
