...and searching for Surnames

I want to locate any fellow Orella's. It's the Orella line that initially hooked me into the genealogy path....Orella is the family of my father's, paternal Grandmother, Dariel Antonia Orella Hadsell. Sadly I never met Dariel, however, I felt sometimes that I must have known her as much as Grandpa Bill talked about her.

If you have any input or feedback or info on an Orella in your life, let me know!

...and giddy with excitement

OMG OMG OMG.........I fell into a FANTABULOUS Genealogical find....Keith and I were went into an antique shop that is in town...he found this handmade photo album. The photo album's owner is one Knowleton Carson of Kansas City. He was in WWII, which is why Keith loves the album. (For those those who are new to me, Keith's passion is WWII militaria, primarily German and Japanese. It's pretty compatible with my passion for Genealogy....) I have decided to use this as the basis for being certified as a CGRS. WHOHOOOOOOOO!!!

I will update this as I learn more about the Carson's...but I am so excited.
