|About A Yankee's Southern Tree
How do we know where we are going, if we don't know where we came from? This is a
passion of mine to learn of who I am. I have served as the Iowa Genealogical Society vice president,
chosen as Warren County Iowa Historical Society Volunteer of the year and all in the passion of
genealogy. I am currently one of the sextons of Avon Cemetery in Des Moines, Iowa.
Some of the things I enjoy are cleaning headstone, teaching others, mapping cemeteries and all
technologies that involve
genealogy or cemeteries.
I hope what I have found will help others find me and more of their family. If you are
having a problem, share it with others, they may have a different way of thinking, that goes for
genealogy and everyday life.
Feel free to contact me and I will show any proof I have not proven. On all lines I can prove
5 generations from me. A few have been easy, a few have been a challenge, after that, I will be
glad to share what I have. As I go on, I hope to prove these as well.
