Bio and Links
I've been working on my Family history since I was 11 years old. I started this because of a homework assignment and became hooked when Grandpa explained that he was Grandma's third husband. I had no idea!

I've used this site for a long time, gleaning little tidbits of information that I needed. Then it occurred to me that I may have information that someone else needs so I should give back. I signed up as a member and I've been adding my little tidbits as I find them. I hope it helps someone.


I have photo documented the Stafford Memorial Gardens up through last summer (2012) so now we just need to keep up with the new additions. But there are hundreds of unmarked graves in that cemetery.

I have taken all photos for the AMAA Cemetery in Brooke, Stafford/Fredericksburg, VA. All names and photos have been entered as of June 2013.

I have completed the photos for Rodef Shalom Cemetery in Cardiff, NJ. I will be entering those as I can. There are over 4000 photos so it may take me most of the winter to get them all entered!

I have taken photos of about 1/3 of the Beth Kehillah Cemetery in Cardiff, NJ. I have completed adding the photos that I have until my next trip. (Except for the ones that need translating from Hebrew to English.)

Also, if I claim a photo request for an area not local to me don't panic. It means that I was there and already have the picture and I will upload it once I return home from my travels. Along those lines - when I am traveling I may let you know that I have claimed one of your photo requests. If you will go ahead and request the rest of your family in that cemetery it helps because if I am running out of time, memory space in my camera, or battery I will try to concentrate on requests that have been made. :)

I want to thank you so much., I can't get out to do this anymore, but I had found out threw you that my family member had past., I have gotten down in health and Nancy Edenton had found me on Ancestry and we were getting our family together i had not talk to her since 2009, since I became ill, I didn't know she had pass. I got back on line the last week hoping I could get back in touch with her., this is so sad she was so good to me the short time we got to talk

RE: Rose Melaten
Thank you. You are very kind. I never met Rose Melaten but I have heard that she was a very sweet person. I only wondered who asked you because I thought it might put me in touch with relatives of hers.

Rose Melaten
Hi: I'm wondering who asked you to take a photo of the grave of Rose Melaten. Her husband Simon was my grandfather's brother. Her maiden name Meline and I was unaware that she had any family.

Yetta Blau's memorial
Hi Carol: I went back into Mrs. Blau's memorial and added her first husband's name. Please check to be sure I did this correctly? Sometimes for me, it's better for someone to check.
Take care.

Yetta Blau's memorial
Hi Carol: I added the information you provided for Mrs. Blau regarding her maiden name and place of death and also linked her to her parents. I did put Pa. as her birth place although I don't know that for sure. I only did that because if she passed away in Pa., I took it for granted that she was born there too. I hope I did right with that.
Take care. Please check what I did. If there's anything that needs to be changed, please let me know.

RE: Clara Rolls
Sorry it took so long to get back to you on Clara Rolls. She was the mother in law of my 3rd Cousin, Ana Dawson who married Arthur Rolls Jr.. I also just uploaded the picture of her grave marker to your Find A Grave site.

Good Hunting

Charles Michael Bloodworth
Thanks for the info on Mr. Bloodworth. I didn't notice another memorial because the oldest memorial doesn't use his given name. He is referred to as Mike. I have deleted mine. Sorry for the error.
Blessings to you and yours!
