Fifth generation Oregonian (born in Oklahoma while parents at college). Lifelong amateur genealogist, local historian, insurance agency owner, had a local political career (now cured), twice Master of my Masonic Lodge, have held a multitude of callings in the LDS Church, was president or chairman of several local organizations, and world traveler. Frequent and ongoing service projects.

However, my worldscape has devolved to primarily caring for and maintaining my home, my mother, two college age children, 11 grandchildren, one cat, one dog, and 3/4 of an acre of wooded property.

As a goal to get me up in the morning, I keep trying to locate the parents of my great grand-father, Joseph Edward Raymond, supposedly born in New York but who spent his entire adult life in Utah (mostly in prison or working with the railroad). All other family lines have been at least minimally identified for 8 or more generations from myself.
