A history buff


Hello my name is Angela Reterstorf. I am retired Navy. I do a lot of family history research. I recently found out my grandfather was in WW2 in the Army but I don't know anything about what he did and may never know as it could be his records were lost in the fire at the records center. I also have a Cherokee in my lineage whom oral history indicates she was a scout during the French and Indian War but so far have not been able to confirm. I love history and enjoy reliving it through my ancestors, I have many who were civil War, and Revolutionary War. I am a member of the Daughters of the American Revolution.

My dad, a U.S. Navy Veteran, was a communication officer on Saipan, during World War II. He was just short of his 81st birthday, when he died in 2003. I still have a Japanese Bayonet that he brought home, as well as his navy uniform. My sister has his wartime watercolor paintings of the island. He's buried in Palo Alto, California.
