About Vicki Lee Fotheringham (Curtis)
I was born in Toledo, Oregon, the 5th child of Leon Gordon Curtis and Mariane Grace Lee Curtis. I am married and have 8 children of my own. My husband also has 3 living children, so together we are the parents of 11 children and as of November 23, 2010. Between John (My husband) and I, we have 25 grand children, ranging in ages from 16 to 2 years old.
We are currently actively working on genealogy, trying to learn all we can about our family histories. Genealogy is such a fascinating hobby! It is amazing what we learn.
Sadly, my maternal grandmother was divorced when my mother was only 3 weeks old, and her story for many years was, "When I divorced your grandfather, I divorced all memory of him." That tells me they had a very rough time together, but we lost out on many years of history, besides the fact, we lost out on getting to know many good and wonderful relatives who were right under our noses! We had no idea they were living so close to us or that they were related. Most of them I didn't even know existed until after they had died.
Thank goodness for Geni and other genealogy sites where we can get to know each other! I am excited about this as we are learning of more and more relatives who are living fairly close and some very close to us!
