Bio and Links
Bio Photo Growing up, my grandparents lived next to a cemetery and I took many walks and bike rides through that cemetery. I find the cemetery a peaceful place to gather my thoughts and to wonder about the lives of those I pass.

Over the past several years, I have been researching my family genealogy, and without the unlikely coincidences and kindness of strangers, I may not have been able to achieve what I have been able to. This is where F.A.G. comes in. I feel that I can possibly help others in their search, just as I have been so generously helped.

If you have any updates that you would like me to add to any of the memorials, just send me a suggestion via the edit tab and I would be happy to update it.

Will Transfer Outside Guidelines
If you want me to transfer a record, just let me know. I will be happy to transfer any record to you, with the exception of those that are in my family line.

If I have posted a memorial for one of your relatives, and you wish for me to take it down, please just let me know. I don't like taking memorials down because it may hinder the search of someone researching their family lines, but I certainly will respect your wishes.

I do transcribe cemetery directories, therefore, you will see many of my listings only have a date of death. This is all that is listed in the directory I am transcribing. If you have additional information for any entry, your help is always welcomed.

Ole Eckness grave
Hello Shannon - thank you so much for adding the memorial for Ole Eckness (#112943735). He is my great grandfather and I have been looking for his grave a long time. We had an older picture of it, but didn't know the cemetery. I just got a copy of his death certificate the other day and learned it was in the Graceland Cemetery and was then able to find your memorial. The death info was incorrect and that is why I hadn't been able to find it with previous searches. I wanted to link him with his wife and children and was wondering if you would mind transferring the memorial to me so I could do this. Again, thank you for the memorial and grave picture - I really appreciate it! Tracy

Thank you very much!
Hi Shannon, Thank you very much for adding that biography that I sent to Thomas Budworth's memorial--and so quickly too! It looks really nice with your fancy border on the bottom and the wider margin on the left-hand side!
Thank you again! Aileen

Thank you, Shannon. I was excited when I first found the record for Erick and then realized it was his father instead. I appreciate your quick response and I'm tickled that you already have him linked to his wife. These are 4th great-grandparents to my children and I appreciate your efforts tremendously.

RE: Lloyd and Francis Whipple - Floyd Cemetery
Hi, I appreciate your offer, but I was just working on some of my parents old friends. I grew up knowing Alice and Bill Whipple.
