How Green Was My Valley

My favorite song is California Stars by Billy Bragg & Wilco, written by Woody Guthrie. My daughter said she thought of me immediately the first time she heard it because I grew up in California and my dream is go back to that area again. I love Celtic, Gospel, Opera and the 60's Rock 'N Roll I listened to as a teenager. I especially love to listen to Vestal Goodman.

How Green Was My Valley

I prefer big, thick books that tell a good story. Not a mystery fan.
I enjoy the convenience of my Kindle but I still would rather feel the weight and texture of a real book in my hands.

I'm a computer junkie and guru for others. I've loved reading since I learned to read in the first grade. My Dad got me started in genealogy. I love it and have been doing it for myself and others for over 14 years. I'm not Catholic but I love the beauty and meaning of rosaries. I learned about komboloi about 20 years ago and set out to find the perfect one for me. I got my first one in 2013. I developed a love of poetry when I was in grade school. My favorite poet is Henry Wadsworth Longfellow and my favorite poem is Evangeline. I named my daughter after that poem.

I have 19 years of genealogical experience and would be happy to help anyone who would like to know more about their family background. I do look ups for free. I do it because I love doing research. My work is thorough and I cross check everything.

Texas born but grew up in the beautiful San Joaquin Valley in California. I met my husband in 1967 at Texas Instruments. We were married in 1970, had a son in 1986 and a daughter in 1991. I retired in 1997 after 15 years in advertising at a major Texas newspaper. I've lived in New York, Connecticut, Rhode Island, Texas and California. I've visited Arizona, Maine, Massachusetts,Florida, Alabama, Louisiana,New Mexico, Mississippi, Oklahoma, Kansas, Nevada, Colorado and Mexico. The two states I would love to visit are North Carolina and Tennessee, where my ancestral roots are.

I'm fond of hummingbirds and flowers. I used to like to cook but don't have the motivation or the ability to stand for a long time anymore. I'm fascinated with mermaids. Family means more as I've gotten older. I respect honesty and loyalty and require it in myself and others. True friends are rare and I highly value the few who are.

SPRING WEATHER! I literally go insane during storms and have to be tranquilized. Not a pretty sight. I don't tolerate liars, I hate for people to waste their own and other peoples' time by acting stupidly when they've got perfectly good brains but don't think things through before they act. I have a fear of traveling. I am terrified of varmints.
