Past Volunteers

We sincerely thank each and every one of the following individuals for devoting time and effort
to The CAGenWeb Project and for helping the project to evolve into what it has become today.
Some volunteered a short time and others volunteered for many years.
They each left their individual marks on the project and none are forgotten.

 

In Memoriam
Patricia Jane Rowell

Pat was born 01 Apr 1932 in Stockton, California.
She passed 25 Dec 2000 in Penn Valley, California.
She was a daughter of Marvin Haller Paddock and Hilda Mae (Kingery) Paddock.
Pat was the creator of the original Butte, Nevada, Placer, Sierra, and Yuba Counties sites for the project when it first
went online in 1996. Pat later volunteered as coordinator for several additional counties within the project.
Pat spent many hours transcribing data so that everyone could have access to it for free.
Her commitment to the project was exemplary and her excitement was contagious.


In Memoriam
Charles Vernon Knuthson

Chuck was born 21 Jun 1946 in Chico, California.
He passed 27 Feb 2008 in Roseville, California.
He was a son of Alvin Charles Knuthson and Eileen Marie (O'Hallisy) Knuthson.
Chuck was a longtime Coordinator for the Sierra County branch of The CAGenWeb Project.
He also was a longtime associate and friend of the project's first State Coordinator, Richard Wilson.
Chuck was an active member in many organizations and societies, some of which included
the Association of Professional Genealogists, the Genealogical Speakers Guild, the National Genealogical Society,
the California State Genealogical Alliance, the Sacramento German Genealogy Society, and the Federation of Genealogy Societies.
Chuck's dedication and contribution to The CAGenWeb Project is remembered fondly.


In Memoriam
Jeff Donald Murphy

Photo of Jeff Murphy

Jeff was born 28 Aug 1947 in Bowling Green, Kentucky.
He passed 20 May 2001 in Gresham, Oregon.
He was a son of Powell Davis Murphy and Marjorie (Morrison) Murphy.
Jeff's primary career was in the field of data processing, where he worked as a programmer and systems analyst.
He enjoyed playing dixieland clarinet and singing barbershop when he wasn't working on genealogy.
Jeff wrote and published several articles on music in the worship services of
The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, of which he was a member.
Several of his works were performed at the Mormon Festival of Arts at Brigham Young University.
Jeff's online genealogical endeavors began in December 1995 with a small database for Muhlenberg County, Kentucky,
when he became curious about how many of the families within the county were related in some way.
Establishing that database led Jeff to become the founder of The KYGenWeb Project in April 1996, The USGenWeb Project in Jun 1996,
The USBiographies Project in August 1996, and co-founder of The KYBiographies Project in August 1996.
Without Jeff's foresight, guidance, and dedication, The USGenWeb Project and all of its branch projects might not exist today.


In Memoriam
Linda Louise Worley

Linda was born 21 Sep 1940 in Bell, California.
She passed 07 Feb 2002 in Crescent City, California.
She was a daughter of Howard Francis Harvey and Edna Evadena (Enderle) Harvey.
Linda was the creator and publisher of the website for one of four defunct California counties, Klamath.
Unlike the other three defunct counties, Klamath not only was created but actually was organized and existed for a time.
Linda felt that it was important to remember the county and its residents.
Linda received a bachelor's degree in journalism from Fresno State University in 1967 and a
master's degree in education from Humboldt State University in 1992.
She was a graduate of the Church of Jesus Chris of Latter-day Saints, Institute of Religion,
and she received a Family History Research certificate from Brigham Young University in 1998.
Linda taught college level classes for 10 years. She is remembered fondly, as is her love for the ill-fated Klamath County.
