I grew up in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania and moved to the Salt Lake City, Utah area seven years ago. I have been married to my husband Dave for almost fourteen years now. We have three children- Blake, Jacob, and Kara.
I have a passion for family history. I was really pleased to discover the Pixel Scrapper site as Ancestry announced last week that they will be closing down the MyCanvas publishing site in September. I had previously used this site to make family history books. I am now making pages in Power Point and have been pleased with the results using embellishments from this site. I am in the process of making a book about the descendants of my great-grandparents John Joseph McNulty and Loretta Grace Siddons who had sixteen children.
I am the Abel clan historian for the Thomas Munson Foundation. Thomas was my 10th great-grandfather. I am actively helping to compile family data sheets for cousins lines who are not in the first five volumes of The Munson Record.
I have researched family history for others in the past but a lot of my efforts these days are focused on helping my cousins get to know their family lines better through Facebook family websites where I have shared my family history scrapbook pages and pictures.
I am a stay at home mom and dedicated family historian/genealogist. I also babysit for younger children in my home during the school year.
This is a scrap page I made about my great-grandmother, Loretta Grace "Laura" Siddons McNulty. I chose a teal background because I find teal to be a very tranquil color. I added a fairy embellishment I found online because my great-grandmother was Irish and I don't have a photo of her. Sadly, I heard she did not like to have her picture taken. I chose lilies because they are one of my favorite flowers and the Love word art was a nice accent to the flower grouping. I thought the butterfly was a nice embellishment with the flowers and background color. I liked the Irish tombstone quote and the heart frame because it signifies how our family is still connected to us even after we have left this earthly realm.
