Bio and Links
Bio Photo It all started years ago, when my grandmother had her ancestry traced back to the poet, Percy Bysshe Shelley. I thought that was pretty cool. Then a handful of old family photos surfaced, and a few colorful stories of my ancestors told to me by my mother got me hooked. All of a sudden, I have a new hobby. I am very new at this, and the information to be found is staggering. It is like a treasure hunt! I also love to visit cemeteries, and on walks I find myself wandering through, looking at the graves. I find them very poignant. As a child, my mother would take my brother and me to the Sunset Memorial Cemetery in Danville, Illinois to see the swans. I learned to drive in the Spring Hill Cemetery (I guess I couldn't do anyone harm there!) As I embark on this new adventure, I am hoping to be able to contribute information that others can use as well. Any of the photos I have contributed may be used for genealogical purposes. I would love to know when I have been of assistance, so drop me a line if you find a grave you've been looking for.

Thanks for posting grave stone photo for Olaf Carl Nelson and Darlene Hawley Nelson (Memorial# 60506394). This is helpful work to find long missing relatives.

RE: Stevenson Cemetery
That is quite the accomplishment to photograph EVERY tombstone in Stevenson Cemetery! A salute to you! Good luck with possibly matching any of the illegible stones. Sometimes just one portion of a date, or name might be a hint. Sometimes, it's just impossible. Great working with you!

RE: Daniel Kiedrowski - Memorial# 110844664
Thanks for letting me know. By all means, keep your memorial. I have deleted Memorial# 90917825, with last name spelled incorrectly (my error). Not related either - used transcription records - found here.

Wonderful to see you added so many additional memorials, and many photos to Stevenson Cemetery! Thanks again!

Thanks
Just wanted to say thanks so much for your cemetery photos. I happened upon my mother's brother's headstone that you had photographed. She had never seen it or visited his grave. It was a special moment for us. Thanks again!!
