Genealogy is a hobby inspired by an assignment in my high school history class in 1999. When I started the project, I found out my great-grandmothers had already put together a large portion of my genealogy. So to start with I transferred all that information to a computer program.
From there, I have been continuing my research with the help of relatives, Ancestry.com, and various county and state genealogy sites. I have been in contact with relatives around the country and discovered more information than I had initially thought I would find.
On this site, I've devoted a set of pages to the families of each of my great-grandparents:
|Oral Percy Crapser||Leola Minnie Workman|
|Eldon Paul Carter||Hazel Maria Laabs|
|Harold Christian Luze||Irene Manilla Christianson|
|Norman Sanford Jorenby||Stella Elmira Waage|
The information contained within these pages, does not necessarily represent all the information I have on my families. Instead these pages serve as a reference to all my documented facts of these families. I'm building out these pages as I dig through the information I currently have scattered across my bookshelf and computer. It's quite a chore, but someday we'll all know what information I've confirmed with other sources.
