This site should be easier to open, and viewers will have more control over what part of the site they choose to see. This web site was last updated 3/19/2006 (by George). This site is being updated with new photos and text. Some of the photos are of family members starting with George's great grandfather and great grandmother. That photo was taken in a Photo Studio in Indian Territory most likely in the 1890's.

Click on the Iowa trip, June 1999 to see what we did and some of the friends and relatives we saw on our trip to Iowa the spring of 1999.
After we returned from Iowa we waited patiently until the weather moderated in Needles before starting our trip to California.
Josephine kept a journal while on our Iowa trip. Click below to view her journal.
In May, 1999 we started a trip to California but turned around when we got to Needles and returned to Tucson.
Some of my family has asked if I would include a picture of the ship I served on during the Korean war. If you will double click on the underlined word "ship" below it will show a photograph of the ship as well as other information. Because the military had strict rules prohibiting military personnel from taking pictures during WW II, I do not have any photos taken during that time. Actually the same rule applied during the Korean war but it was not strictly enforced. If you click on ships you will see a real hero, and it isn't me.
When Josephine and I go to California we travel in our motor home. When we get to California we stay in the Mission Farm R.V. Park. Please open the site Mission Farms below.
