Pam has been researching her family history for over 30 years. She does not have any children of her own, but is doing this for two reasons (1) to pass on to her niece and nephews and (2) in order to help others in her church to understand how to capture their family histories.
Pam and her husband Dan live in San Diego, CA with their two Yorkshire terriers, Sassi and Taffy. Dan's mother, Carol Grobee, lives in Garden Grove, CA, approximately two hours north of San Diego.
Pam's parents, Jim and Grayson Russell, live in Reno, NV, where they have resided since 1975, when Jim retired from the U.S. Army after 35 years of service. They have been married for 56 years.
Pam's sister and brother-in-law, Cindy and Randy Wright, live in Clemmons, NC. They have three children, Jimmy, who is engaged to be married, Greg, who is a student at NC State, and Jennifer, who is a senior in Clemmons.
Pam's brother lives in Italy with his girlfriend Denise. They are working at a bed-and-breakfast inn in the region near Alba.
