      Nope - Olympia, WA. Been out here about 20 years. Came late to genealogy too, unfortunately after both parents had passed on. Mom's side of the family homesteaded in Minnesota from Sweden and Norway, Dad's maternal side emigrated to Indianapolis (German). It's his paternal side that is causing us heartburn. There is a second cousin Chris (from this "lost" side) in Indy who is Mormon, and has done wonders with finding documents. We connected last summer when I visited there and had a grand time researching in Lawrence and Jackson counties. Found the cemetery where Matilda Jane Robertson Weddle (Greenbury and Elizabeth's daughter supposedly) is buried. Back in the woods, up a steep hill on a ridge. Chris is flying out here next spring and we are going to hit Salt Lake City family research center on the way back to Indy (road trip). Chris's family lived with her grandmother Ruth for many years, and Chris heard stories of Matilda, and Elizabeth who were still alive when Ruth was young. I was also lucky in that my grandfather (Ruth's brother) wrote his memoirs although he only mentions Matilda (and her last husband) briefly. My Mom also wrote some memoirs, as did her aunt, so we have wonderful stuff about that side. Last year I was able to find the location of one of the old homesteads in Minnesota- and went into Canada and saw still existing homesteads there from my grandparents' siblings who emigrated. Hard to imagine some of the shacks are still standing and farms are still in the family. Though not for much longer I'm afraid. Rather sad.
