2010 IAGenWeb
Project Coordinator's Conference


We were so fortunate to have as our cook for this conference, Debbie Clough Gerischer!

 Debbie Clough Gerischer 

Our oldest son gave us our first computer. He thought I would love getting on the internet and looking for our family roots. He was right.

I went to the Scott county site and offered to help. Cathy LaBath "hired" me. I type whole volumes, but the bio's are my favorite. I love to read about the real people from the past. We had so much information left over that did not pertain to Scott County that Cathy, Elaine and I started the Iowa History site in 2002.

We have 4 bio kids with 13 grandchildren. Most are interested in our family history. I have been married to Barry for 42 years. During that time many kids have lived with us that did not belong to us. We went into the foster program 12 years ago and added 8 more to that list.

My husband was in the service for 20 years. After retirement we moved to the family farm and started to have hog roasts. I found that cooking for a crowd was easy for me. I never wanted to do it for money. Barry and I were on the Catholic Charities Advisory Board and I quickly became their private caterer. Now I am starting to cook for the American Legion.

Cooking for our Iowa group is going to be so much fun. I just want to keep adding to the menu so Lynn is trying to keep me in toe ...
