My Family

Thank you for your patience as pictures are loading.

Meet my immediate family. Unfortunately, all my grandparents have passed, but they leave a great legacy. Both my grandmothers did extensive genealogies - some dating back to the 1500's! I have put as much information as possible on each family line on this website (see the sitemap for more details), as well as individual biography pages for notable family members.

On my mother's side are the Wight's (my grandmother's family) and the Kendall's (my grandfather's). The Wight's also branch out (by marriage) into the Avery's and the Whiting's. The Kendall's branch out via marriage as well into the Burnham's and Andrews, Davidson's, Murdock's, Spaulding's and Hibbard's.

On my father's side, there are the Langdale's (my grandmother's) and the Kuba's (my grandfather's). The Kuba's have a single branch by marriage, the Pallasch(ova)'s, whereas the Langdale's branches include the Ames' and Northrup/Northrop's.

Gone now, but never to be forgotten

Annie (Anatasia) Beltrami - RIP September 2008

In September of 2008, we lost a living legacy. Annie (Anatasia) Beltrami passed at 99-1/2-years-old. Noni was a part of my family for just a few years, but she was such a joy. She loved telling stories of her life in Italy and tales of being a new immigrant to America. She was wise and full of love and I am proud that she was a part of my life and family.

Mom - RIP August 2009, Pat Beltrami - RIP October 2009

Within just two months of each other, I lost the two most important women in my life - my mom in August of 2009 and my mother-in-law, Pat, in October. They were my confidants, my best friends, my mentors, my biggest cheerleaders. I was truly blessed to have not one, but two, wonderful mothers.
