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.
Thurman Munson is another distant cousin of mine. We share a common great-grandfather, Samuel Munson (7th for him, 9th for me). When I joined the Thomas Munson Foundation Facebook group I was surprised to see how many cousins did not know if he was related or how he tied in. He is only very briefly mentioned in one of the Munson Record Volumes.
I chose the bluish-gray background since it is a memorial page and it was a sad day for many baseball fans. I included a newspaper drawing that was in the paper as well as a picture I founds of a signed baseball. I also included a trophy and an American flag since baseball is such a popular American pastime.
