Bio and Links
Bio Photo I'm a lover of cemeteries, mysteries, and family history. I feel a keen sense of time and mortality (not as morbid as it sounds), and feel it's important to catalogue headstones/cemeteries and record inscriptions before it's too late. Not just to honor the dead, but to serve the families who may come searching.

I'm a born archivist, and so I find myself digging for information, whether the memorial is "mine" or not. It's not for glory or to "do better," but rather to contribute and help folks be remembered.

A little note on photos: If you come into possession of a photo of the person or a pertinent record and need my photo slot, I will gladly give it up, so long as mine is not the only photo of the headstone or clearly superior to the other headstone photos there. Don't ask me to delete a clear, sharp, readable headstone shot in favor of a blurry one. That said, I WILL delete mine in favor a more easily decipherable shot.

A note about the "purpose" of Find A Grave: I have recently experienced certain folks proclaiming what Find A Grave is "for." These people object to bios that paint a picture of the person passed, insisting that Find A Grave is supposed to be a registry of graves (which it is, but that's not all it is). These same people don't hesitate to fill a bio with minutiae about Confederate service or distant relationship to King Charles II. Guess what I'm trying to say is this--we all have our own idea of what's "important." I won't whine about yours, you don't whine about mine.

One last thing (I hope). I've come across a rather unpleasant practice some folks engage in: DELETING memorials after accepting edits. I guess it's some small, stupid tactic utilized by lowlifes to avoid updating a memorial while making it APPEAR they have. I now keep all accepted edits in a file so I can be sure this isn't happening AND so I can make sure edits aren't being undone days or weeks later. Dodging edits a crappy, immature thing to do. If you feel the need, this probably isn't the site for you.
