My primary goal, at this point is sourcing my Alaskan heritage. Alaska records are as yet, not digitized, therefore I am searching documents, going through books & eventually will find what is on microfilm. Possibly PhotoDup is in my near future.


Come summer time hiking, biking, roller skating, skiing, swimming and  good long walks are but a 'few of my favorite things'. Gardening, rather flowers or veggies is the best at home activity unless you have a push mower.... Winter brings excitement to play in the snow, my favorite being snowshoeing, second is cross country skiing, which I have not done for over a year now. Snowboarding & downhill skiing were great in Alaska but too expensive for me now, here in Utah. I will shovel your sidewalk if you want because all I want is to be outside, rain, snow or sunshine....


McAllen Texas, spanish speaking proselyting mission was my first. Brutal to my health, more so my lungs, was South Texas. The humidity, most often 100% combined with heat, temps reaching over a 100' in summer months filled my lungs with fluid. The downhill slide started with heat exhaustion
