Smelser in California [22 July 2012]
Hello Diane marie, I noticed the text you placed on Category:Smelser in California. The category pages are for navigation and general information on surnames. The best place for information about your mother would be a Person page which you can create by clicking on Add>Person. Please note that pages for people who are still living are not permitted on WeRelate. If you have any questions, you can either post here, or on my talk page. --Jennifer (JBS66) 06:29, 22 July 2012 (EDT)
