Random Acts of Genealogical Kindness
In Their Words
Bridgett, Tennessee born, is an only child and had to leave the beautiful state when her father joined the Navy when she was about two years of age. She says her roots run "deep" in Tennessee with all but 3 of her lines coming into the state pre-statehood.
Bridgett ventured into her family research in 1995, but quickly got "hooked" on this well-known addicting hobby called Genealogy which remains with her still. The research she has done leads her roots back to Adam and Eve of Bible fame. "Well, sorta" she says. Her 6th great-grandparents were named Johannes Adam and Margaretha Eva (Eve) Biebel (anglicized to Bible upon getting to this side of the big pond in 1750), through their son Christian.
The other half of this equation belongs to Dale "Doc" a computer geek since high school (back in the main frame days) his first PC being a TRS-80. While he served his stint in the Navy he helped to set up the computer networking in the Pacific.
Now, although "Doc" is not into researching his own roots, he fully understands the passions surrounding it. Through his programming knowledge he has helped many people further their own research. His heritage is German-Russian with his first known, (as of now) ancestor landing on U.S. soil in 1857 in Maryland. The story goes his great-grandmother on his mother's side came to the U. S. from Russia as a baby. As our ancestors are known for migrating, his immigrant Schneider found themselves in Illinois and then on to Nebraska where "Doc" was born and still resides today.
Both "Doc" and Bridgett have been married previously but will celebrate their 7th anniversary in June of 2007. Their combined family consists of four children and seven grandchildren with two of them being granddaughters. They range in ages from twenty-one to five months. These offspring and their offspring's are scattered across the country, and much to their disappointment they are unable to spend the time with them they would like.
But... a Fur-kid does reside in their household that keeps them on their toes, 6 year old, Skyler, a Cairn Terrier.
