A Colorado native, I married a man from Wisconsin and we spent 38 years in the Midwest. Upon retiring in 1998 we moved to Colorado Springs.

I then started working on Genealogy and it has become my avocation. Besides working on Newsletters, I write articles for various genealogy publications and have co-authored several genealogy books including The Early Families of La Cienega and The Early Pojoaque Valley, Laboradores, Jornaleros and Artesanos with Henrietta Martinez Christmas. Last year I finished a three year project by compiling a book on The Nicolas Ortiz Family of New Mexico.

I enjoy spending time with my husband. My son and his family live in Chicago so we travel to see them several times a year. Also enjoy hiking, reading and sightseeing.
