The main focus of my research is Franklin County, Illinois where my parents and three of my grandparents were born. I participate often in the Rootsweb Mailing List for this county, ILFRANKL, which is VERY active and helpful.

My parents migrated from Illinois to California after WWII and I was born in Inglewood, California on June 19, 1951. In 1955, my parents bought their first home in La Mirada, California, where I grew up and graduated from La Mirada High School in 1969. I still consider it to be my home town. I maintain a photo-sharing site for this community at Our La Mirada.

I currently live in Indiana, near Louisville, Kentucky, and attend college part-time at IU Southeast. I've been married to the same man over 35 years and have a 22 year old daughter in college as well. We have a 1 year old Welsh Corgi names Heidi and an old calico cat, Belle.
