Bio and Links
Bio Photo I have been working on my family tree off and on since I was 12 years old (so over 42 years). I feel it is often like a treasure hunt. I enjoy researching for others and enjoy seeing how much information I am able to gather for them.

My love for genealogy came from my father, Rev. Geo. K. Swartzfager. He was a minister and was able to learn and remember family members of most of his parishioners. I seem to have this same ability often to the annoyance of my own family. They often seem to feel this is a curse but I feel it is a blessing that I have gladly inherited.

As I said, I am willing to do research for others. I have several books to assist in this research: Cemeteries of Crawford County, Ohio, Volumes 1, 2A and 3; Marriages of Crawford County, Ohio 1831-1997; History of Crawford County, Ohio; Index of Applications of The Pioneer Families of Crawford County, Ohio; and Families of Crawford County, Ohio 1977-1978.

Please do not make duplicates of people I have added to Find A Grave. I am willing to make transfers whenever the person is not related to my family. I will try to respond/transfer as soon as possible. I enjoy working on Find A Grave and visit cemeteries to take pictures as often as possible. While in a cemetery in Pennsylvania, I met a cousin (living of course). You never know what you may find. A friend says she can't go by a cemetery without thinking of me. My daughter just thinks its creepy. Hopefully someday my children will inherit some of my genealogy insanity.

Hi Kathy!

I was wondering if I could take over the management of my Grandpa and Grandma on find a grave? My Grandpa was Virgil Wayne Laipply and my Grandma was Pauline V. Upham Laipply (both from Bucyrus, OH). They were basically my parents as my mom, Karen Laipply, was struggling single mom. I loved my Grandparents very much, and I would love to manage their pages.

Thank you for your consideration. :)

Salem Cemetery
The info about Salem Cemetery on old U.S. 30 is incorrect. It is in Eden Township, not Mifflin.
I do not see a place where I can correct this error. Some of my relatives are buried there.
