Bio and Links
Bio Photo It doesn't really matter what one puts in the bio section because 99% of the time, no one bothers to read it anyhow!! :D

But for the record,

I am pretty liberal with my transfers,

The majority of my memorials are made with 2nd hand information so please feel free to send me corrections (as long as they make sense that is),

Cite the source and I will add obituaries (but I will edit out living relatives if it is a recent death),

Any and all typos are the mistake of my keyboard...not the user!! :D


I don't mind checking to see if there is more information on said person at the local library (depends on where the funeral took place)...within reason...I have my own family to chase down (living and otherwise!).

RE: duplicate
My son, who does findagrave extensively thought that you may have taken your grave pictures, but not designated "Grave". He has seen that happen before. That may be why when someone brings up a name, it comes up that the picture is missing. It's no big deal. You have almost the entire cemetery photographed and posted which is a major accomplishment!

I was driving back to Paris from Champaign today and stopped at the Villa Grove Cemetery and took pictures for graves that my smart phone reported had no pictures. So, after I get home, I see that I had added many duplicates, because you had already put the pictures of the graves on yourself. I have never had this happen before. I go to cemeteries all over the place and take pix and add them to Findagrave and have never had a problem. So, I apologize...there are now 2 pictures of some of the graves. If I can go back and delete the ones that I did, I will, but I may not find many of them, as I delete the pictures off of my phone after I add them to Findagrave. Again, I apologize...darn phone!

May I use photos for my family tree? Photo courtesy given. I just found a relative at Oak Ridge Cemetery, and the connections are great. Thanks so much.

Beck Cemetery
I looked up the Beck Cemetery in Sangamon County, Illinois, and I noticed that you took the pictures of the headstones there and I was wondering if you are related to the Beck family?

RE: Betty McGarigle
I do understand. Let's see if the other memorial holder can get the cemetery changed to St. Josephs and go from there. I don't think she's related so it probably doesn't matter but would be nice to "clean up" the duplication somehow.

SGT Jerry M Chunges
Hi Tory,

I've finally found a photo of Sgt M chunges, been searching for about 4 years. Last week I was able to make contact with his sister Mrs. Barbara
(Chunges) Deck. She had no idea that there were several web-sites on the inter-net that posted tributes to her brother Jerry, who was killed in Vietnam. Yesterday she sent me 4 photos to post to these web-sites.

I'm not a member of the family, but I now do fell like one. I wonder if you would transfer management of his findagrave tribute over to me so I can add some information that I have been able to acquire from members of the unit he served with in Vietnam.

My id is 47610090.
