Bio and Links
Bio Photo ***** If you have emailed me and have not heard back, please email me again. I never thought this would happen, but I am getting swamped with emails from FAG and, and I may have mistakenly missed a few emails. *****

I will gladly transfer memorials to family, no matter the lineage, as well as to friends. :-) Any photo I take is yours. :-)

I have always been drawn to old cemeteries where I read and touch headstones as my way of remembering those who have passed on.

I am forever grateful to the following FAG members:

Janie #47619161, who located numerous documents for me about my great grandmother who died in 1912 and started my family tree on, giving me an incredible jump start on my ancestral research.

Clint Black #47536687, who was instrumental in helping me learn about my Wyoming ancestors from back when Cheyenne was still a territory.

Van Bender #47533106, who brilliantly took photos of all the damaged crypts at Saint Bernard Memorial Gardens after Hurricane Katrina. Without him I would have never known where my dear friend Dianne Agnes Bird May lays peacefully after a horrific death.

Dee #48005787, who went to an incredible amount of work to locate the gravesite of Hung Anh Truong #96905085 in order to be able to photograph his headstone. Hung, a Vietnamese teenager, is considered to be one of the first hate-crime victims in Houston, TX.

Judy H #46977685 who has filled over 30 of my photo requests in Milwaukee, and has even created memorials with photos of my family that I did not realize were buried in Milwaukee, and then transferred the memorials to me. Judy's work provided me with many dates of birth and death I was not able to find on my own.

And those who have transferred memorials of my ancestors to me, filled photo requests for me, and have taken their time to help me along the way.

I have had the privilege of documenting an old forgotten Jewish cemetery in Hallettsville, Texas, that is in deplorable condition, and over 150 graves in a Historic Black cemetery in Colorado County, Texas.

No, I am not a descendent of Rufus Cleveland. My DAR patriot is Find A Grave Memorial# 25210074.

I will see if I can help get the merge done.

Thank you for your kind words regarding Mr. Felsenthal's memorial. I am of no relation to him. I simply enjoy contributing to the Find-A-Grave site. Regards, Patricia

RE: :-)
There is nothing I am following up on, so just work at your own speed.

I did need a new battery for my car, but my car is a 2001 and they said the battery was the original, so it lasted a long time! About a week later my computer acted up, and I ended up getting a new hard drive. It's been an expensive start to the new year. Luckily I have a friend that worked on the computer for me so I saved the expense of transferring files etc. He set up some new software for me too.

I'm looking forward to spring and getting out to some cemeteries again!
