Bio and Links
Bio Photo I love cemeteries! I walk my area cemeteries frequently.

Let me make this clear,
to Karen H.....
ALL of my memorials are from my own family research, death certificates (vital records) or obituaries, but most are from actually WALKING & PHOTOGRAPHING many cemeteries.
Yes, I have WALKED & PHOTOGRAPHED nearly every cemetery in several counties. I have over 400,000 photos of tombstones! If my memorial is created at the same time you also obtained cemetery records, rest assured ... it was NOT from your research! Repeat... was NOT, is NOT, and NEVER WAS from your research!
Stop with the false accusations & assumptions.
Your work is not highly sought after, and it's definately something I could go get myself if I really wanted to. I can (and do!) my own research, I don't need to use or copy yours!
I have NEVER used your personal website or transcriptions for any of my memorials. You say you find it unethical for others to steal your work ... well, I find you unethical for falsely accusing others of stealing! I don't appreciate the things you have written about several of us contributors and all the FALSE assumptions!!
Also, REMEMBER other contributors send me edits DAILY to update memorials with correct names/dates, so some information is from them!
If you are so upset about others "taking" your work, then I highly suggest you take "your work" off the internet. Your problems will be solved.
Just because my information matches what you have, does NOT mean it came from your useless UStombstone Archives site, a site that I have never been to!
Get over yourself.
.... Candy

Please don't add "unknown burials" unless you are going to update the memorial to a proper cemetery within 30 days. I won't add parental or spousal links to "unknown burials".

If you see a name I have added, chances are I have a photo to go with the name. Use the "Request A Photo" link.

If you have corrections and/or additions, please let me know. I work very hard to make these Champaign County, OH memorials accurate.
However, please be SIGNED IN when you request a correction or have additions and LIST YOUR EMAIL ADDRESS!!!!
If I have questions, I need to contact you....

If you are requesting a transfer of one of your direct grandparents, please be sure to include your ID# in your request!
If not your direct grandparent, I will gladly make your additions. Please try to follow the guidelines for requesting transfers, but other family will definitely be considered.

Find a Grave does not require that I search the entire Find a Grave system globally, only the individual cemeteries in which I am adding to.

Please don't purposely duplicate a memorial when you KNOW one exists but is listed as Unknown or in another cemetery. BE COURTEOUS and suggest to the contributor to edit their memorial to the correct cemetery.

Also, no need to send me info such as
"Mr & Mrs John Doe have another child, Jane Doe"
Or... "Mr Doe has a wife Jane who died XXX"
That's fine, but unless they have a memorial page, I cannot link them. Please create a page for additional spouses or children & link them, or send the contributor the link numbers. I can't link children unless I am their memorial creator.

These are the names I am currently searching. I won't transfer memorials related to anyone with the following surnames:

Patricia Koehler
Thank you for sharing your photo of this headstone.

Do you know anything about Patricia being buried on this grave site? The headstone says Adelaide Koehler and Mary Hudgins, I am not sure how they are connected.

Thank you so much for your time.
