Lorraine Louise Harper

I would really appreciate it if anyone would know anything in regards to my maternal grandmother, Lorraine Harper, born about 1912. She married Clarence Williams in 1934 in Chicago Illinois. They moved to California and had a child Kathleen (my mother) in Van Nuys in 1943. My mother did not tell me anything about her and has since died.

Thanks!!!

Hello - when I started this I had the intention of posting something once a day but then my world turned upside down - I adopted a golden retriever who is finally getting used to me being on the computer. It is too hot to be outside so I am in here working on the blog.

The Wolford Connection

I have a literal ton of information on Wolford or Wohlford and about 17 other spellings. I want to share this information and thought a blog would be a good way. The information you will find here is mainly from my personal research and what was contributed for publication in a newsletter I did about 15 years ago called The Wolford Connection. I also have research that Elaine Wolford shared with me and asked me to share with others and research by Jon Wohlford.

My Wohlfords descend…

A Tribute To My Mother – Mother’s Day 2012

This past weekend was Mother’s Day. I had a lovely day with my oldest son and husband. We had lunch and went to see The Hunger Games which I enjoyed. My favorite thing to do is watch movies so if you’re wanting to do something special for me, take me to a movie, pretty much any movie, and I will be happy.

Lots of my friends were posting messages on Facebook and Twitter about Mother’s Day. Some were photos and little tributes to their own mothers while some were photos of them spending…

Neighbors, Who Are They, Why Are They Important

Neighbors, why are we tracking them, I only want to do my lines?  I hear that statement pop up often and it blows my mind.  Yesterday I presented a talk on," Who are your Neighbors?" 

Let's look at why we look at neighbors. To do this in full we start with our neighbors. Is your neighbor just the house next door, or your genealogy buddy's near you, close friends and sometimes family?  Why look at them, again you say, well because to find your lost kin you have to be on the…
