Barbara's Home Page

Hello, my name is Barbara Jean Marlow Irwin. My family has encouraged me to share my genealogy research with others by providing this website. I hope you find my research helpful and somewhat enjoyable. Follow the links below to see some of my family pages. Remember, it is a work in progress.  

Sad news: I am sorry to tell you that Barbara Jean passed away on August 21, 2009 following what was supposed to be routine open heart surgery. Her passing was totally unexpected. I have decided to leave her web pages up as a memorial and I hope that family history researchers will benefit from it. I will put my email on this page if you need to contact me about her research. However, I am not the expert on these lines, she was.
