|Bio and Links|
Being a forensic anthropologist, geographer and having taught geology, I greatly enjoy the treasure hunt of genealogy. If you have a document written in old German text, I may be able to help with it's transcription. Two of my favorite lifetime hobbies have been researching families for friends and searching (with divine guidance!)-- for years and using every resource available -- to finally reunite adoptees with their birth families. My norm at home is to have a steaming cup of licorice tea on my desk, Irish fiddle music playing in the background, and three snoring yellow Labradors surrounding my chair.
Each GPS location edit I submit for a memorial page is verified by me to be accurate and coincide with the aerial satellite view of GoogleMaps, which takes the viewer directly to the gravesite. I have visited these locations in order to take grave marker photographs and determine GPS coordinates. Any other edits I submit for memorials are thoroughly researched, with source documentation saved and available upon request.
Please help out your photo volunteers by obtaining the specific plot information from the cemetery office and adding it to your request. Some cemetery offices will only do look-ups for relatives; others will respond fastest to a relative who calls.
GRAVE MARKER TRANSCRIPTIONS
These are SO important! Why? Because grave markers (and even entire cemeteries) can disappear over time. Photographs can be lost. Web sites can lose their memory. But the most important reason is one most people never consider. It is this: Many people who are blind or living with low vision are using the Windows text reading program, which reads text from their computer monitor, word-for-word, to them (Please do try it! All Windows operating systems come stock with this feature, and it's the coolest!). If there is no transcription of a grave marker on a memorial, those with vision problems are exempt from knowing what is recorded on the grave marker. A transcription takes only a few minutes to type and post; please take the time to transcribe the words and perhaps write a few words about descriptive features of the marker at the time you post a photograph. Those few minutes taken now to transcribe and post may mean everything in the years to come.
May sunshine fill your life, kindness follow you through all your days, invisible Irish blessings shower you with healthy living, and sweet chocolate always be on your menu for dessert!

Hey, you said you were not going to get the pictures until Monday. I know. You have a time machine right? And, you went into the future to Monday to get the pictures and came back just for fun! Could I borrow your time machine? I promise I will bring it back to you before you let me borrow it. :-] You would never miss it.
Nice pictures. You done good and thank you very much.

Bridey, I so appreciate your hard work. Thank you very much for the pics. I will call the cemetery about Louise's actual burial site. You are wonderful!
Thank you so much for taking the time to get these photos for me. Since I am in Wisconsin, I am not sure I would ever get to see this without the kindness of people like you on Find a Grave.

Thanks for the compliment. I love Humboldt. When I was in high school I was on the varsity cross country team and attended a running camp at the university a couple of times. I have great memories of running on clam beach, Patrick's Point and other great places.

I love your thoughts on that gravesite. So funny. I hope they are in heaven watching us trying to find all of them.
|Becky Romo||RE: George and Alois Studer: Your photo requests for them|
Thank you so very much for your kindness. I was told that but now you have given me more information. Thanks for all you do with findagrave.

My dear friend,
I used one of your photos for my Dad's memorial. Thank you so much for your care.
