Bio Photo ****Please use the newest Edit Function if you are adding/correcting basic information****

**I now maintain a majority of the entries created by "Laura" in the Novi Cemetery. I am not related to any of these people. If I have a member of your family do not hesitate to ask for a transfer!!**

Born and raised in Metro Detroit. Have always loved exploring old cemeteries. I have been trying to add and photograph large portions of cemeteries to Find-A-Grave. I try to volunteer as often as I can to photograph graves in my area along with Albion, MI and Guernsey County, Ohio.

Gram's memorial
Dad's memorial
Brother's memorial.
Cassi's memorial.

I usually shy away from larger "memorial gardens" as the staff usually do not like to be "bothered" with grave locations... especially if you are not related.

When requesting a transfer, suggesting a correction, or addition, please use the "Edit" tab on the memorial. It is much easier as it provides me with a link to the memorial.

If I have added any of your relatives and you would like me to transfer them to you, please ask! I generally only keep my direct lines.

If you are related to one of my relatives, I may have additional information on them that is not posted on here.

My family names include:

Raezler/Nast Requests
I fulfilled the requests you had for Raezlers and Nasts, but also took photos of the neighboring grave of Charles F (1896-1976) and Olga S (1900-1968) Raezler. If you want to create memorials for them, I can add the photos, or I can create the memorials if you prefer. Please let me know. If I don't hear from you in a few days, I will create them, and can transfer them to you at a later date if desired. Thanks.

Record Transfer
Can you transfer record # 66244108, Clara Crocker, to my account. She was my wife's paternal grandmother.

RE: Sylvia Gray #158521210
I have transferred Sylvia, Adelbert, and George Gray to you. I am happy to know they have been found by family. That was my goal in creating their memorials.

Thank you for the information you submitted for Sylvia Gray. I also manage memorials for her husband Adelbert and son George. If you are related, I will gladly transfer them to you. Let me know if you would like the transfers.

RE: Old Washington
Yes, I spent days over there searching this whole cem. & trying to find all of the requests going by the book I have from the Guernsey Gen. Society. The old, old part where his stone was is a mess as they are so old & a lot are missing since they made the book up in 1994. That's 22 more yrs. of wind & weather on them.....So, sorry, but I tried. In the one part, I had to actually dig the dirt & grass off of the stones that are buried @ ground level from way back. This part is where you enter the cem. on both sides of the driveway. I didn't even know they were there until someone told me.......It took a long time & days, but I got it all done. On the last day, one of the guys that mows it saw me there & came over & said they should keep those dug out, but they haven't been doing that.....Thanks for doing the ones I asked you to put the notes on.....
