WHAGS Leadership Team
When I married my husband, Vince, he was in the Air Force, and we moved a lot over the next 25 years. After my husband retired from the AF we moved to Williamsburg, VA for his 2nd career. We lived there for 20 years and had planned to retire there but we decided we would love to be close to our son and his family in Texas. So, four years ago, we packed up and moved to Cypress, Texas.
I have pursued the hobby of genealogy on and off for some 40 years and still have so much to learn. I love visiting courthouses and archives in my never-ending search for ancestors.
I joined WHAGS in 2020, where I served for a year as webmaster and am currently beginning a stint as the second newsletter editor. I look forward to participating in this great hobby for years to come.
I was raised in a Military family. While in the Army, my dad met and married my mom in Thailand. Through Mom, I have roots in Bangkok, Sri Lanka, Denmark and Laos. On Dad’s side, I descend from Pennsylvanian farmers who trace their roots back to colonial times and to the Isle of Jersey in the 1400’s....
I’m a native Houstonian who grew up in Spring Branch and my roots go back through Louisiana and Washington State.
Discovering our family history through genealogy can help us tell the stories of our past to our future generations.
