Bio and Links
Bio Photo I became interested in our family history as a direct result of the avid interest of my mother and oldest sister. My life has become enriched by this desire to know where I came from. Thanks mom and sis!

I truly enjoy Find A Grave and the Find A Grave community. This growing group of volunteers is so willing to help other researchers!

I am very willing to add to and correct any of the memorials I manage and will do so as quickly as possible. Please help me out by making suggestions through each memorial's EDIT button. This makes it much easier to locate the correct memorial to make the recommended additions and corrections. It will also make certain that I see the request. Requests made through member page messages can get missed.

Thanks much!

FELLOW PHOTOGRAPHERS - the website below has some great tips on photographing headstones, it is a worthwhile read - check it out.

Briefly - some Do's and Don'ts
- do use reflected light to photograph hard to read stones (use a mirror or other reflective surface)
- do get down to eye level with the stone
- do fill the viewfinder with the stone
- do take some close ups and some photos showing the entire stone
- do use only distilled water and soft wood utensil (bamboo or popsicle stick) to gently remove lichens
- do use soft natural bristle brushes

- don't use chalk, flour, shaving cream, graphite, etc. to read stones (these can damage and/or stain the stone).
- don't do rubbings as the pressure can damage the stone and/or break the stone off
- don't use soaps, vinegar, club soda, bleach, or cleaning solutions of any kind
- don't use wire brushes, sharp metal objects, knives, nail files, etc.

Thank you Jenean
for all the amazing pictures. I'd just gotten finished making sure the dates on the memorials (and the spellings:) matched what is actually on the stones, and whew! And I'm just SITTING HERE looking at them ~ not FOR them, or cleaning them or keeping track of the time of day the best sunlight would be on the face of them...or cropping and uploading them and ~ I really do appreciate all you do.

Thanks for taking care of the edit I requested. She was my maternal grandmother's cousin. As far as I know all our Doolys spelled it without the e except for her father Gerald but I don't know any of the young people to know what they do. Gerald's stone at Delevan has the e. I'm still wondering why this is.

With the Albert Goetz photo you took for me at Greenwood, I was there today and there's still no death date engraved on it. I must've misunderstood the location because I couldn't find it. After I gave up and headed out I accidently noticed it from my car. I really don't know if the family has to pay for this or if it's included in the original deal. Maybe the wife wants to wait until she dies and somebody can do them both at once.

RE: (38T) & 39T Greenwood
They are just beautiful, Jenean. Thank you. And so much help too in linking the family members. [O instead of Q :) led me to Herman's son in Kansas and the volunteer there has already linked them!] This Find a Grave thing is really cool. And thankyou especially for Ruth Day's; my "Aunt Ruth in Duluth". I wish there were a gizmo for letting the managers of all the other memorials know when a gravestone picture has been added then they could be as smiley as I am this morning.

Amandus Focht
I just wanted to let you know that I just completed posting photo's for Amandus, Amelia and Lillie Focht. I also posted and created a Memorial Page for Amelia's children, William Focht, Nellie Focht and Eddie Schliem. Eddie's parents were Samuel and Amelia Schliem Focht. If you like, I can transfer management to you or to someone else if you like. All of the children are buried in the Focht family plot.
