The online home of Todd Mecklem  

NEW! AND AT LONG LAST! My genealogical document “Mecklems of the World” is now available as a free pdf (all 390 pages of it, with many photos!)…you can find it at If you have any trouble downloading it, email me and I’ll email you back a copy of the pdf.

Even non-Mecklems will enjoy reading “The Autobiography of L. G. Mecklem” (which also makes up the last 58 pages of the “Mecklems of the World” document linked above)…you can access a free pdf of the memoir of Llewellyn Guy Mecklem, the young daredevil who was the first person to fly an airship above Seattle in 1908, at L. G. also parachuted from balloons, raced cars, and flew airplanes. The memoir is a fascinating read.

I'm putting my photos online, little by little, at

FATE Magazine published my article on the Mummy Museum of Guanajuato in the Feb. 2004 issue, and they used one of my photos on the cover. My article on Mexico's "Santa Muerte" (and another cover photo) appeared in the Nov. 2003 issue, and my "Mysterious Havana" article in Aug. 2003.
