The majority of the work done on my family lines was done by my Mom. She interviewed a lot of relatives and did a lot of digging for sources and old family photos. She worked on the family lines for over 20 years. The genealogy files have been temporarily removed from the web. Currently, I am working to scan all of the old family photos I have acquired.
As you can tell from the images and links on my page, I am a Freemason. I am an active member in my Masonic Lodge, the Scottish Rite, the Order of the Eastern Star, the York Rite (Chapter of Royal Arch Masons, Council of Royal & Select Masters, & Commandery of Knights Templar) and the Shrine. I have held an office in all but the Shrine..
These organizations support wonderful charities, and it is their goal to be a help to those around them whenever they see a need.
I have finally decided to start my own photography business. It was to be a hobby of taking portraits for folks to offer them a less expensive alternative. However, circumstances have changed those plans and it has become a business.
You can see some of my work at the B&D Photo web site
Photography is something that I really love to do, and I have learned a lot about it over the past few months.
