My name is Kathy Stokes Hudson. I was born and raised in OK. I have been married to the same person for over 30 years (most say poor guy). We have 2 sons, a granddaughter and grandson. And my only 2 daughters I have are in the pic. (gr)

I was a hairstylist/nail tech for 20 yrs. I sold my salon and retired from the beauty business in 1998. I was also owner of Genealogy Shoppe at the time. I now run Genealogy Shoppe from my home. In 2000, I purchased Census View (actual census on cd-rom) At Genealogy Shoppe you will find My Roots & Branches mini binder that I have manufactured and design the charts and forms. At Census View, I scan the microfilm of the actual census. I make as much correction without distorting the image before writing it to cd-rom. On weekends I take Genealogy Shoppe/CensusView to genealogical seminars. Some of the states you will find me is: AR, AZ, GA, IN, IA, KS, KY, LA, MS, MO, OK, TN, TX, UT, & VA I also lecture at genealogy seminars.

I am a strong supporter of USGenWeb Project as long as it maintains free genealogy. I very much appreciate those who have made the websites I maintain a success. It is from THEIR very hard work of submitting their information to me that the sites are a success. It is my gratitude of their work that I will do everything possible to keep their trust and not allowing the chance of their work being distributed on a "pay per view" site. The counties that are close enough for me to travel that I maintain, I try to gather information for free use on the websites. Of course time and expense determines how often I can make a trip to the county. I am a coordinator for AFHA (AR Family History Association) and maintain the mailing list of over 1000 members. The counties I maintain are:
Morgan Co., Al. http://www.genealogyshoppe.com/almorgan/index.htm(mail list)
Howard Co., Ar.http://www.genealogyshoppe.com/arhoward/index.htm(mail list)
Sevier Co., Ar. http://www.genealogyshoppe.com/arsevier/index.htm(mail list)
