Tell us a bit about your genealogy/family history journey

My mother’s Peasley line leading to Waterman and Messenger has been known to me since I was a child. It was something her aunt, Adda (Peasley) Hughes researched.

My father worked diligently at his family history and wrote a self-published book on it. His sister, my beloved aunt, Naomi Lucy (Robinson) Anderson, also had done extensive research into her and her husbands’ ancestry. I’ve been excited to take what I’ve learned from them and go further with what is available online.

Favorite food or beverage

Surnames of interest

Robinson, Grenier, Boushon, Wallen, Budd, Greb, Hoover, Jones, Peasley, Messenger, Ames, Eveland, Anderson, Harrison, Ihda

If you could meet one person from your family tree that died before you were born, who would it be and why?

My paternal grandmother, Leona Catherine (Budd) Robinson. From family stories, she seems like she would have a lot to share about her life experiences.

Genealogy pet peeve

Parents naming their children with common given names when they have a very common surname like Smith or Jones. 

Favorite place where you’ve traveled

Redwoods in California

From a genealogy/family history research perspective, what would you have done differently?

Gotten more involved in the search and correspondence for family members with my aunts and father when they were into doing that.

What are you currently working on and what’s next?

Several projects on WikiTree: Surname studies = Peasley, Paisley, Ihda; Place studies: Andersonia, Bethel House, Raton NM, Dawson NM; Family building for the US Black Heritage, Cemetery study = Fairmont Cemetery Raton NM; Religion sub-project = Jehovah’s Witnesses

Next: Continue working on the above and if any of them finish up, take on more volunteer tasks
