Northern People: Genealogist digs up roots

Brenda Wolfgram-Moore sought out for advice on genealogical projects


"I love to see their face when they see something that I found."

In addition to her interest in family genealogy, Wolfgram-Moore has begun compiling a database of Civil War soldiers from the four county area. With more than 2,600 names on file, she says she spends at least some time, everyday working on one project or another.

"I'm also hoping to begin a Korean War database as a tribute to the area vets," she noted.

In an effort to share her projects with the community, she has set up a Web site that includes images of post cards, newspaper clippings and a wide variety of photos.

"I have boxes and boxes of items, most of which I can tell you what I have, some I just have no idea," said Wolfgram-Moore.
