My name is Laurie and I have been researching my family tree for almost 30 years. I am the mother of seven beautiful children, two cats, two goldfish, and one dog. I am currently engaged to my soul-mate, Paul. I found the love for family history when a teacher assigned us the homework of talking to our parents and grandparents about their parents and grandparents; now I am hooked!

I have just started here at WeRelate. As time allows I will be adding/connecting my family to the pages here. I have over 250,000 names in my own personal database. I hope you will be patient with me as I "learn the ropes" here.

My current project is locating and documenting the cemeteries of Morgan County and Camden County, Missouri. I have been a contributor to Find A Grave for close to 16 years. As time allows I will create user pages for the cemeteries that I document.
