Background information:
Brief speaking/genealogical bio: Resident Bend since 1964.  Retired school librarian; member Bend Genealogical Society.  Have traveled extensively in U.S. searching original sources for family history.  I first began researching family about 1967, first with family elders and papers then in libraries.  Later I traveled further and because my husband’s ancestors arrived early in New England and remained there 200 years, I acquired much experience in searching those records.  I have spoken at BGS, DAR State Conference and GCO Conference.
