Bio and Links
Bio Photo I love American history, I like dealing with names, and I love solving problems. It was just a matter of time before I got into genealogy! 

None of the memorials I have posted are my relatives, and hence I have not researched them. I do try to add some detail to memorials though in an effort to identify the person. 

If you want to write me about any of the memorials I've created, please leave a message on this page. To suggest a correction or edit for a particular memorial, please use the Edit button at the top of its page. I do not automatically approve all suggestions, meaning I need some sort of proof of new information. If I can't find any proof myself, I will ask you for it. (Note: Family trees on FamilySearch or Ancestry are NOT sources, and I will not add something just because it appears in someone's tree.)

If I have posted a memorial of one of your relatives and you would like the memorial transferred to you, please use the method that FindaGrave has provided, which is thus: Go to the memorial page and click the Edit button. Of the choices that follow, click on "Suggest any other correction or addition." This will bring up a message box for you to write me, and the email FindaGrave sends will include a link to the memorial as well as to your profile page. Simply write me a note requesting the transfer, and tell me how you are related to the person.

Any gravestone pictures I shot myself as well as I could. Please copy and use them! Post them in your family tree on Ancestry or wherever. That's why I took them.

Last, I would ask folks NOT to post death certificates on my memorials because I feel they are not appropriate for a picture. It's just my preference. I'd be happy to enter any information from a death certificate that isn't already on the memorial. Please do not post any other documents either, such as census pages, on my memorials.

FindaGrave is a great website even though it's basically all about deaths! Still, it makes me think of the verse "And this is the testimony: God has given us eternal life, and this life is in His Son. He who has the Son has life; he who does not have the Son of God does not have life." (I John 5:11)

RE: Agnes D. Homeier, # 124079370
Hi Julia,
I would be happy to take over the care of Agnes' memorial if you are willing to transfer it. I can create the memorials for George and Rose and request gravestone photos.
I am always thankful when I can link someone's grave to other family members because I feel like this helps to keep them in our memory. I have a special feeling for those who died young, and I am grateful that I have been able to link several of them to their parents. Sometimes I even have a photo, like the one of my mother's little sister (Margery Ann Gill, memorial #103231721). I only have photos of Agnes' mother Rose, but perhaps another relative will have a photo of George.
Thanks so much for all your help.

Agnes D. Homeier, # 124079370
Dear Julia,
Thank you for creating the memorial for Agnes D. Homeier. I noticed that you included some information about her parents, George Homeier and Rose Gill Homeier, in the memorial. I am a descendant of Rose's cousin, John H. Gill. I have a photo of Rose that I would like to add to a memorial, but I have not been able to find either Rose's or George's grave. I know that Rose was living in Marquette in 1950, but I have no other information about her after than time. I would be grateful for any information you might have about where Rose and George may be buried.

Thank you for your reply and the additional information. I agree with you - sometimes we just have to flip a coin.

Thank ya so kindly for the reply. I wasnt asking for you to delete your memorial so I apologize if I came across wrong to you. I was just wondering about him myself. If I can help in anyway I will certainly try to. Thanks for everything you do on here to by the way.
