I have been fascinated by cemeteries since I was a kid. I grew up near the Old Baptist Cemetery in Hannibal - the one most people agree that Mark Twain used as a model for Tom Sawyer. That led me to other places. Over the years, I've explored a lot of cemeteries.
Then, a few years ago, my mother got interested in geneology in a big way. She loved to research, and amassed a database of well-over 100,000 names. I'm now sorting through that database, and I've decided to help others in the same way.
So here I am, splitting my time between my own research, and documenting cemeteries in the area for other peoples' research. Let me know where you're looking, and I'll do my best to help. Feel free to use my images for your own geneology work - that includes using the images for Ancestry or Family Tree Maker. Please remember to give proper credit if you do any publishing. I prefer to be listed as Michael Mann, Quincy, IL

Beside taking pictures of wargraves, I have now started with my wife a small business in which we are placing dayfresh flowerboucquets on wargraves, memorials, cemeteries from Ypres to the Somme. I have started this business due to the many requests from people around the world.
This service can be found on our website: http://www.wargrave.eu/
In the customer section you will find an example of a commemoration I did last week for a Scottish client in Dunkirk.
If this service would interest you please drop me an email: firstname.lastname@example.org
It would be great if you could share this with people you know.
Lela M McAdams Hill, #105386542 Hi Michael, Is there any chance you've come across their 2 daughters, Leita M and Dollie C Hill? I have found Dollie married a Lester F McFarland in Brule Co, SD.
DeWitt's 2nd wife, Sarah Edna Smith is my relation and raised his 2 daughters, along with her family of 6 children.
Would you consider transferring Lela M McAdams to me? She is also my relation through another line. I have some other info that could be added. Thank you for your consideration, you 'young' scoundrel. Rosemary #48094107
