Hi all you Deirdorf / Deardorf people,
I also have the Anthony Deirdorf Book.
I wanted all of you to know that my Cousin is married to a descendant who
isn't interested in Gen. His wife is Dacia Peters( maiden name). They live
in western Washington abt 20 miles from me. Dacia's uncle is the one who
wrote the book from Olympia Wash. He was retired and spent over 15 yrs
traveling all over the U S talking to descendants, searching court houses,
cemeteries and whatever he could find. Then not long after the book was
done he left us.
He was a remarkable person and he loved doing this book. I believe all his
notes etc. are at a Gen Soc. or something of sort repository in Olympia, Wa.
My cousin sold me her book and I have been able , like some of you, to help
many people who have thanked me much. I also have an ex sister in law who
with her husband bought a house owned by a descendant in Twin Falls, Id back
1988?? for sure, but they had divorced there and sold and he went to
I made some notes in my book and also had reason to pass on to another .
I love Gen and have been researching many names on many sides of my family.
>From Eng., Ire, Switzerland, Holland, Canada, etc. 4 from Ire,
If you any one needs something from the book or else, let me know.
Would like to have your Gen to add to the book as I keep any I find to check
and add to the book down the line. I also can give your E Mail to those
that are looking for someone connected to their line ONLY if you wish. I
sent someone about 30 pages containing their line . about 3 mo. ago .Good
luck, on your search.
Maxine Baldwin in Roy, Wa
