The history of our genealogy database

This site is dedicated to my mother, Patricia A. (St. Gelais) Wright (1928-2008), whose work was used to create this database.

Patricia was born on September 9, 1928 in Gardner, MA to Waldo and Isabel Ellinwood. She married Florien St. Gelais in 1955 and resided in Rutland, VT until the family moved to Phoenix in 1970. She married George F. Wright in 1976 and he preceded her in death in 1995.

She worked as a bank teller for First Interstate Bank for several years and upon retiring was able to fully enjoy her hobbies: genealogy, needle crafts, and reading. She was able to trace her family heritage to Scotland and was proud of her heritage.

She worked on these genealogy files for close to two decades, before her unexpected death in February of 2008. I felt that her work should not be in vein, so I expanded the genealogy section to include all of my mother's research.

Just click on the Genealogy tab, select the first letter of the Last Name, then select the Family name to go to that database.
