This web site is a collaborative effort of a group of Cyber Friends who have an interest in Genealogy, and who volunteer their time to this effort.

The purpose of this web site is to kindle new interests in genealogy and to share our collective data.

It is our hope and aim that this site will continue to grow and expand. If you would care to become a Casual Contributor, then please use the Email contact link at the bottom of the page.


I am a mother of six and grandmother of eight, a retired accountant interested in genealogy and travel as something to keep me busy in my senior years.

I became interested in researching my late husband's ancestors after a trip to Germany in 1994, as well as my own family lines. Both of our families have their roots in Bavaria and all settled in Cincinnati, Ohio in the mid-1800s.

I am a member of Palatines to America and the Hamilton County Chapter of the Ohio Genealogical Society. I participate in several genealogy mail lists, and after taking my husband's and my family's main lines back to the mid-1600s, I enjoy helping others with their research.

I am a mother of two, grandmother of eight, and great grandmother of twelve (the thirteenth one will arrive in January 2012). I am also aunt, great-aunt, and great-grand-aunt to many, many more. It takes my fingers and toes to count the great grands and I don't know what I will do when the count goes past the fingers and toes stage, revert to pencil and paper I guess.

I started researching my family tree way back about 30 years ago when you had to do it by writing letters and going to courthouses for documents. After getting the initial tree started life got in the way and I put it aside for nearly 20 years then took it back out again and started up once more except this time on the computer. I have added thousands and thousands of names to my family tree over the last dozen years and am working on adding as many documents as I can get my hands on to go with the names.

I love photography and travel but love cemeteries even more. My vacations have consisted of traveling to visit cemeteries and taking photos of the markers in them. I take as many as I can while I am there because I never know if I will get back there again or not. Those photos are also the reason I got into making websites. I needed to share them and share them I did and I am still adding to them. I love cemeteries!!!

I am now retired and enjoy computers and web design. I grew up in the Gulf Coast States but call Oklahoma my "home". I have lived and been schooled in California since 1962. I lived in Southern California before moving to the San Francisco Bay area to affiliate with the University of California (San Francisco).

I was born in England and have traveled extnsively before retirement for the University. I am fortunate to live in an area near one of the large family history centers, of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints in Oakland, California.

  Sanderson   1924 — 2008

Carol and her husband had three children, five grandchildren and four great grandchildren. Carol has always loved history, even as a child.

Carol used to exclaime, "I just didn't ask the right questions when I was growing up and therefore missed on finding out a lot on both sides of the family. Genealogy developed as a natural offshoot of my interest in history". Carol was a member of two genealogy societies, and has served in official capacities in several of the local societies to which she belonged. Carol enjoys helping people in their searches as well as working on her own family line.

In addition to her interest in her family, she also explored her interests in genealogy as well asher fascination in computers, traveling, reading and many other pursuits too numerous to mention.

Carol's contributions to this site were:
  • New Hampshire State Pages Steward
  • Branching Out, Editor (The GHLL Monthly Newsletter)
  • Email lists
  • SURNAMES Archives pages
  • Carol did "look ups" in the New England Area.
