Ego Blog

I went on-line the other day and entered my name into a Google search, I found myself on Facebook, Pinterest, Etsy,  my flicker account,The White Pages and Ancestry.com. Apparently I even wrote a letter to the Stateline observer about paying for abortions... no wait that was Mary Marsh Gautz from Morenci .  According to Spokeo  there are 10 Mary Gautz's in Michigan, Three in Wisconsin , and one in Ohio, Oh and they seem to think that I'm in my late 60's.

There was the Blueberry website in south haven that used my photo of the Lighthouse I had given them permission to use. 

They had images of Mary Gautz  but I only saw one picture of myself, the rest were of my art work my son and a lot of strangers. They even had a photo of my Uncles grave in Wisconsin. I had never used ancestry.com before but I then Goggled my maiden name and there was a lot of information , I am defiantly going to check this out further.
