Bio and Links
Bio Photo I find 'Find A Grave' a great research tool. I'm retired, living in Traverse City, Michigan and using genealogy as a way of keeping my mind active. I have been president of Grand Traverse Area Genealogical Society and am a member of Austin Family Association of America.

I do transfers, links, change information and anything else I can to make FAG a place that is user friendly. It is the members of Find A Grave who make it great place to spend your research time.

If you are related to any person on my memorial list, send me and e-mail or a public message about your family.

My family lines are Austin, Penix/Penick, Paradis, King, Bowman, Joseph, Taft, Seelye, Todd, Pinette, Nadeau, Rose, Reed, Barker, Lovejoy, and Foster.

RE: Naylor
I will keep looking. I don't remember who is buried where but go to the cemetery fairly often so I will check to see which arms of the family are buried where. I've checked one part of the family and it is maintained by sunshine girl (??I think--don't remember for sure now.) I will let you know if I find any others.

RE: Naylor Family
I think that sounds fine--although I don't know what it requires. I am fascinated by this web site and anxious to read more FAQ's to learn more. I would like to put more of Leland Cemetery on here and possible St. John's Lutheran. Depends on my skill levels! Thank You for putting on the Naylor's!! I appreciate it and it was fun to discover!!

Yes---it's okay. Use #47951563. I plan on visiting St Casimir's Cemetery in a few weeks.
Thanks for getting Matthias Szymanski's memorial started and for the headstone photos attached.
