Bio and Links
I have been doing genealogy for about eight years - and love it! My sister and I travel just about anywhere to do research & investigate cemeteries. I must say that cemeteries are my favorite! I live in Michigan, but travel to Monroe Co., OH approx. three times a year to research the Morris, Moose, Long & Steede names.

Hootman Cemetery Aerial Photos
Hello Kathy,

Thank you for your photo of the Hootman Cemetery graves. I assume that you have been there. My brothers and I hope to visit it in the near future.

I have been doing some research and believe I have located the cemetery and Hootman Hall on aerial photos. Would you be willing to look at these and confirm?

If you agree I can send PDFs to you. Thanks

Mike Hootman

Can you help me locate a husband and wife that passed away in DC? It seems that DC has that 50 year rule about obtaining a copy of a Death Certificate, which is keeping me from finding their burial location. Could you access the Obits in the Library?
Please help me if you can.

RE: Phoebe Morris
Thank you-

If only the man who did the memorial for the son Henry would do the links they would be together.

Loved the picture of Easter Bunny coming to Oma and Papa's house----She is so pretty. Looked like Norm was having fun playing with Jackson.

Unfortunately, you can't remove the photo. You can edit the caption to advise people to post memorials to the Monroe Co. cemetery. Only F.A.G. admin. can remove a cemetery photo.

I made a similar error with a Mt Zion Cemetery.

I sent an email to the creators of memorials for this cemetery and received a single reply. Although the number memorials has dropped from 18, to 13. So, some progress was made.

You may contact "Cemetery Corrections" via the Discussion Forum and request the photo's removal and perhaps a transfer of the memorial to the Monroe cemetery. Just keep in mind F.A.G. receives thousands of corrections and the queue is about two months long.

If you're not sure how to do this, I have it on my to "do list".

Hope the weather gets better. I can't wait for my next cemetery / genealogy adventure. Keep up all your good works on F.A.G.

I'm so glad I read your Bio information. I understand about using the pics now. I didn't realize there were copywrighting rules involved! I will be more sensitive to this issue because of you! I hope I haven't stepped on any toes unknowingly... Thanks!
