About Pat Geary – Microsoft MVP – Expression Web
I live in the beautiful Shenandoah Valley of Virginia with my husband Jim. We have been married 25 years in October and between us we have seven children – five daughters (his), two sons (mine) – and twelve grandchildren, two step-grandchildren, and four great-grandchildren. We are the proud parents of Katie, a golden retriever/husky mix who we got from our local SPCA. At age four she is FINALLY growing out of puppyhood.
My hobby for many years has been counted cross stitch and I maintain two sites to share that hobby – Pat’s Cross Stitch Corner and the Geary Family Homestead. Sadly, the homestead still needs some work.
Then I got started on a new endeavor, website design. It became a passion. The more I learned, the more I wanted to learn. Then I needed to do something with this knowledge.
- First I created a site to share our genealogy research which you can check out on my Family Genealogy site. While we no longer travel to do on site research, it is still a hobby I very much enjoy.
- Then I volunteered as the webmaster for our religious home, Unitarian Universalist Fellowship of Harrisonburg VA. and for my local DAR chapter.
- Jim’s Writings – a site I set up for my husband to share his writings with his daughters and anyone else who might be interested.
This site and Genealogy Web Creations are two sites I set up so I can pursue my passion of website design while “paying it forward” to help others as I have been helped on my journey. In April of 2007, I was designated a Microsoft MVP – FrontPage. I was also recently honored to be featured on the RootsWeb Volunteer Spotlight for my contributions to the RootsWeb Communities.
If you are a genealogist using either FrontPage or Expression Web and maintain a site on one of the Rootsweb servers, come join us.
So pull up a chair, be careful of your cup of coffee if it is near your keyboard and browse the contents of any of my sites.
