Marilyn Monroe
Marilyn Monroe was one of the most iconic actresses and models of the 20th century, known for her captivating beauty and charm on and off the screen. Born Norma Jeane Mortenson on June 1, 1926, in Los Angeles, California, she endured a tumultuous childhood marked by abandonment, abuse, and frequent moves between foster homes and orphanages. Despite her difficult upbringing, Monroe showed a natural talent for acting and modeling from a young age. She began her career as a pin-up model in the late 1940s, and soon caught the attention of Hollywood executives who recognized her potential as a movie star. In 1950, she signed a contract with 20th Century Fox and began appearing in small film roles. Over the course of the 1950s, Monroe's career skyrocketed as she starred in a series of hit movies, including "Gentlemen Prefer Blondes" (1953), "The Seven Year Itch" (1955), and "Some Like It Hot" (1959). Her performances earned critical acclaim and she became a beloved cultural icon, renowned for her sultry voice, impeccable comedic timing, and timeless beauty. Beyond her accomplishments on screen, Monroe also used her platform to advocate for important causes, including civil rights and women's rights. She was a vocal supporter of the NAACP and worked tirelessly to end racial discrimination in Hollywood. Additionally, she spoke out about her own experiences with sexual harassment and abuse, helping to raise awareness about these issues long before they entered the public discourse. Although Monroe's life was cut tragically short when she died of a drug overdose in 1962 at the age of 36, her legacy continues to inspire and captivate audiences to this day. See The Wonderful Marilyn Monroe. Her films and photographs remain timeless classics, and her enduring influence on fashion, beauty, and popular culture is a testament to her enduring impact.

I am researching Tasker, Jones, Bowen, Rees of Wales; Kroetch, Chartrand of Canada; and Boggs, Ferguson, Smith, of West Virginia and Eastern Kentucky. Also Steeples of Kansas. And on my mother's New England roots - well, too numerous to name since she descends from Mayflower passengers as well as Dutch East India captains who arrived with their families before the Mayflower landed further north than was planned. :)
I'm a Founder of AncientFaces and support the community answering questions & helping members make connections to the past (thus my official title of Founder & Content and Community Director). For me, it's been a labor of love for over 20 years. I truly believe with all of my heart that everyone should be remembered for generations to come. I am 2nd generation San Jose and have seen a lot of changes in the area while growing up. We used to be known as the "Valley of Heart's Delight" (because the Valley was covered with orchards and there were many canneries to process the food grown here, which shipped all over the US) - now we have adopted the nickname "Capital of Silicon Valley" and Apple, Ebay, Adobe, Netflix, Facebook, and many more tech companies are within a few miles of my current home in Campbell (including AncientFaces). From a small town of 25,000, we have grown to 1 million plus. And when you add in all of the communities surrounding us (for instance, Saratoga, where I attended high school, living a block from our current Mayor), we are truly one of the big cities in the US. I am so very proud of my hometown. For more information see Kathy - Founder & Content and Community Director
