About PeggyAnn

Professional PC Consultant, Researcher, & avid people watcher, Peggy Ann Rowe started into her genealogical quest at age 15 after watching the mini-series, "Roots" with her parents. This new obsession has fueled her love of history, & study of cultures & societies in every epoch. Today she is 57 years old with four kids who are all grown up (& all have flown the coop). In between her 'gigs' with clients she volunteered at many different non-profits. Former President, Secretary, and Director at Large on the board of the Douglas County Historical Society for 10+ years, and former Secretary at the Cloverdale Historical Society (Sonoma County) for nearly 10 years. This website is an attempt to share the knowledge she has gained about her family ties with others who may be interested in the same things. She does not guarantee 100% accuracy and does hope that you will send corrections. To learn more about her, click the "about" button in the page menu. Thanks! Another goal of this website is to disseminate a message (i.e. education) about domestic violence, child abuse, and all forms of sexual abuse to society at large. The message comes from real experience from the whole spectrum of the violence from sexual abuse by a perpetrator to sexual abuse perpetrated by a husband, to the abuse of children within the family. Peggy has seen it, lived it, and been hurt by it. There will on occasion be details that might be hard for some people to read, and a warning is usually posted at the beginning of the essay so that those who want to turn and not read may do so. The only way to teach and to let others learn what to avoid is to SHARE what happened with every detail necessary to make the point. Thank you.

TAVR to the rescue

I have been having discussions with family members/friends about how the system lets patients like Clyde get into such bad shape before they give them these procedures. And I’m not necessarily supportive of all the medical systems and routines. From … Continue reading

Love Is…

When I finally move away from where I am now, far away, and never look back.  Don’t bother to ask me why.  By that time, it will be way to late.  I’d rather be completely alone… Continue reading

Is This Really 100% on Trump? Or are American’s Politically Lazy?

Let me make it really clear. I do not agree with the supreme court and it’s ruling on Roe vs. Wade. Nor do I agree with the changes they made to the Miranda stuff. Nor am I in love with … Continue reading

Surprises in Education

Let me be the first to inform you,
that arrogance and attitude can,
-in fact, be intimidation.
A form of power play.
A form of abuse of people. Period. Continue reading

“I’m Moving On” (DRAFT)

a song recorded by Rascal Flatts. My note: I find myself reflecting on my life, including my behavior, feelings, actions, etc. all the time. I always have, it’s been part and parcel of trying to figure out who I am … Continue reading

A View of ‘God’

Some view ‘god’ via life’s conditioning or by an assessment of evolving science and proven facts, while others do so via myths. Some blend these and other perspectives. Albeit, there is no ‘god’ as good as the one we believe … Continue reading

How the Ukraine Situation is not like WWII

The short summarization is that NO, Putin’s “war” with Ukraine is not like WWII. (Or Hitler with his Nazi comrades)  We know this is true because this is not in the least based on hating some other race or ethnicity … Continue reading
