a Little About Our Speaker

Paul E. Hodel has been active in genealogy for over 30 years. He worked for Caltrans for almost 30 years before taking early retirement due to a family illness. As a genealogist he got interested in cemeteries and has taken on cemeteries as his second hobby, or as he says, his "obsession." He is a regular contributor to www.findagrave.com and is an active volunteer with the cemeteries in El Dorado County, especially the pioneer cemeteries. He has done research in and photographed graves at over 200 cemeteries in 16 different states. Paul will be discussing cemeteries from both a genealogist's and taphophilia's viewpoint.
