GENEii Writers Contest, initiator of the 1890 Project to recreate the lost LA County Census, and my very first contact with SCGS. We lost her a few months ago to ALS - Lou Gehrig's disease.
The front page of today's LA Times carried a feature article, written by a good friend at the Times, that provided a glimpse into her last days. SCGS has created a memorial in her honor that will be used to fund an annual family history writing presentation at Jamboree. Please read this and meet the very special woman that was Beth Uyehara.
