Announcing: The Ancestry of Theodore Timothy Judge and Ellen Sheehy Judge

The California Genealogical Society is pleased to announce publication of The Ancestry of Theodore Timothy Judge and Ellen Sheehy Judge: Including the Families of Boland, Roussel, Harman, McMurphy, Kelley, Bohane, Chapin, Freiermuth, Taylor, Moore and Farneman.


Theodore Timothy “Ted” Judge died in Cupertino, California, June 11, 2008. Although neither he nor his late wife Ellen Sheehy Judge left descendants, they shared a mutual interest in family history that they enthusiastically pursued over the years. In his will Ted left legacies to numerous charities and
institutions, including the Bancroft Library at the University of California at Berkeley, where he had spent many hours as a student. His bequest required that the administrators of the Judge estate, in conjunction with the Bancroft, arrange for the publication of a Judge and Sheehy genealogy to be distributed to Ted and Ellen’s cousins. CGS contracted to fulfill Ted's request and this book is the result.

The project consumed the society's Research and Look-ups committee for months. Judy Bodycote chaired the committee while Jane Lindsey negotiated the agreement and shepherded the project through to completion. The Research team of Judy Bodycote, Lavinia Schwarz and Pat Smith started work in 2009 with the assistance of Dick Rees and Laura Spurrier. Later Judy Zelver, Lorna Wallace and Barbara Dyer joined the research team. Nancy Peterson assumed the final writing responsibilities and Matt Berry took on the Herculean task of formatting (and re-formatting) the book.

The list of major contributors:
  • Matthew B. Berry - layout, proofing and indexing
  • Judy Bodycote-Thomas - research, charts and photo editing
  • Verne Deubler - proofing
  • Barbara Dyer - research, indexing
  • Jane Hufft - editing, standardization, meetings
  • Jane Lindsey - coordinator
  • Bill O'Neal - maps
  • Nancy Peterson - writing, proofing
  • Richard Rees - research
  • Lavinia Grace Schwarz  - research
  • Pat Smith - research
  • Laura Spurrier - editing, proofing
  • Shirley Thomson - proofing
  • Lorna Wallace - research
  • Judy Zelver - research
Acknowledgment must also be made to those who stepped up to maintain the research and look-ups services ordinarily done by the committee. Verne Deubler took over much of the weekly look-ups work load and Dick Rees, Pam Miller and others helped with research projects.

Copies may be purchased from Lulu.com.
