If I had to describe Pam I'd say she is funny, artistic, and loves all aspects of family history and genealogy. Wife to Neil Marks, mother to Layne Jacobs, she has lived most of her life in the San Francisco Bay Area - particularly in Santa Cruz and Willow Glen. She has researched her family's genealogy (and many of her friends!) going back hundreds of years. Loves to travel to locations that have to do with her roots.

Personal Life

Pammy is the mother of Layne Jacobs Marks, wife to Neil Marks, sister to Kathy Pinna, aunt to Daniel Pinna, and a truly artistic individual. She loves music and is a talented artist. She has a particular passion for genealogy and has spent decades researching the Kroetch / Kroetsch, Steeples, Marks and numerous other families. She has some records going as far back as the 1300s and has tracked her ancestors from the U.K. to the Mayflower. She has traveled the world to visit historic sites related to her family, perform hands on research and has been an activist in the genealogy community since RootsWeb. It is her passion for genealogy that has resulted in AncientFaces. Pammy had the idea to add photos to family trees back in 2000 which resulted in the first stage of AncientFaces when we were recognized as the first original photo genealogy site online.

My 'Ant' was one of the first people that I remember to really introduce me to different types of music. I think I really discovered Phil Collins and Enya (what a mix 'eh?) from her. One of my HER favorite songs from high school was "Pretty Ballerina" by Left Banke and from the 60s Sunshine Superman by Donovan. She thinks Richard and Mimi Farina's Falcon was a call back to our Kentucky roots ;)
