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.

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.
My interest in the Wolfords are in this country only. My old friend the late Jon Wohlford had some research on them from Europe and I will include that but not here at this time. I am starting off with my 5th…Continue

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…Continue

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.

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…Continue

PROVO, Utah, May 13, 2012 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Ancestry.com Inc. (Nasdaq:ACOM), the world's largest online family history resource, today commented on NBC's decision not to renew the Who Do You Think You Are? television series for a fourth season.

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…Continue
