Updated 2/24/2015

Thank you in advance for your understanding.

I will not be on the site daily--one of my family members is seriously ill. This is but a hobby--my family comes first.

I am also having internet connection problems (intermittently), so corrections will get done as soon as I am able, but within the allowed time limits.
Been "graving" since I was a child...and researching my genealogy for over 40 years.
I have been dealing with chronic health issues for many years, and I am always playing "catch up." I try and do the best I can. If I post a photo to one of your memorials, and you are not satisfied, feel free to submit a photo request and wait for another graver to fill it.
I DO NOT link to "Burial Unknowns." This is a "final disposition information" site, not a genealogy site, and I will not link to any burial listed as Unknown.

Per administrator Mark (9/21/2012):

"Admins won't knowingly link any memorial to a memorial of unknown disposition. We should not expect you to link them either."
I DO NOT give permission for my photos uploaded to this website to be posted on any other website (and that includes and is not limited to NO EXCEPTIONS! Photos posted to memorials on Find A Grave are copyrighted by the member who submitted the photos. Lifting the photo to use elsewhere (on other sites) would be a violation of copyright law, and a violation of Find A Grave's policy as well. Ancestry provides a link feature for you to add a link to Find A Grave memorials. Please read the Ancestry Terms of Use regarding copyrighted photos. Stealing them from here and uploading them there can result in the loss of your account there, with your money non-refundable.

REMEMBER: Just because a picture is on the Internet doesn't mean you are entitled to it!

Also, when requesting transfers, submitting corrections, etc., please use the EDIT tab in the upper right hand corner of the memorial. That way, I get all the links and can do them easily. If requesting a transfer, PLEASE state the relationship to the person you are requesting. I am related to many of the people for whom I created memorials, and I need to know this. I do out-of-guideline transfers on a case-by-case basis. Also, do not post correction or transfer requests on my page here--I probably won't see them, as I get many messages a day--and the EDIT tab is the correct procedure to use. Thanks in advance.

Please visit the memorial for my brother-in-law, who passed away suddenly on January 21, 2011 at the age of 54:

Bill Rampp

Thank you for your kindness.

Dombrowski edits in Woodmere
Hi: I see you have been busy with the Dombrowski family. I added the information you sent and found some records on them. Agnes and Ernest were husband and wife - tragic story there. Thanks for all your work at Woodmere. I see that our friend Gail really did a job with their web site. It's locked up better than Fort Knox. Shame on her...

RE: Schaarschmidt family @ Woodmere in Detroit
Yes I would like to be able to take care of the Schaarschmidt family. My mother was Edna Schaarschmidt Purdy and she is buried in Alpena. There are many Schaarschmidt's in Woodmere Cemetery that I would like to link to their families.

Woodmere Cemetery, Detroit, MI
Do you still do photo requests for Woodmere Cemetery? I see the requests are over 1000. I would like to fulfill some requests, but the office is not co-operative in giving out section maps & info. Can I ask how you attained your Woodmere info?

Baby Girl Loose
Happy New Year! Thanks for the heads up on Baby Girl Loose. I changed her to Mt Olivet, with her mother. I also noticed she wasn't linked to her father. She is now. Have a good 2015...

Hello TLIB,
You have been of great help over the years in my search for family especially in Woodmere. You transferred a memorial to me, a Frank Sharkany. Not sure why I believe you may have hit the wrong send to.
Please advise at you convenience
