Bio and Links
Bio Photo I live in Colorado and I'm very interested in family history. The whole reason I joined here was to find my ancestors. I love going to cemeteries and taking pictures. Many of my contributions are based off the photographs I take at these cemeteries.

Sometimes I have trouble reading the dates in the pictures - if you can help me you can click the Edit tab at the top and send me a message. I want to get it right! I like linking family members and adding any info you may have for me. :D

I'm more than happy to transfer memorials to family members!

The one nearest and dearest to my heart, my daddy, was the reason I joined. You can always stop by and leave flowers. <3

At the moment I am currently helping Beth in Colorado add all the folks in Lakeside Cemetery in Canon City.
Update 8/4 - We're DONE!! Yay!

My main interest names are:

A note about my photos - any headstone photos that I took, you have my permission to use on Ancestry or even your own family history pages, all I ask is that you note that I(Courtney Birkes) took the photo. Thank you :)

Memorial # 107258899 for Clara Ann Garner Bennett
I have been doing some research on my BENNETT family and as happens with many, my Clara L BENNETT and this Clara A (Ann)Garner BENNETT have gotten morphed into one person in many trees. I have found plenty of records to prove they are two different people, but I like to add info to those I come across also so it leaves a clearer "trail" for others who will search these same folks and seeing the records added to both of these persons will not be led down those wrong and confusing, and time wasting "false trails." So to the point! I would like to manage this Clara's mem for a time (say 6 mos or so)and add the link (by marriage not birth to her husband Floyd L Bennett (they share the same headstone which you took a photo of) but when I searched the cemetery for his mem info/# etc it found none. I would like to add her husband, parents, and children info and links that I have so when people search for any of them they will easily find the others also. I appreciate all you contribute. I like to feel I can add a bit and help too. I saw your link to Beth in Colorado that you are helping her with the Lakeside Cemetery so please let me know if this temporary transfer would be possible and how I would add her husband Floyd L Bennett to the list for the Cemetery and link him to Clara etc. I manage several other memorials (still working on some of them)Again, Thank you, Lilly B

If you would rather not transfer them just let me know and I will give you more information on them and a link to their parents. Thanks again.
