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.

I used Irish themed elements and word art to accentuate this photo of my 2nd great-grandfather's grave. His death date is the only date that seems to be standard across the board so he leaves an interesting paper trail. I added the word art since it has to do with Ireland and has the word Patrick in it. The yellow hibiscus flower represents friendship. I chose it to complement the yellow text in the word art.
