Bio and Links
Bio Photo 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, Stafford, VA 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. This cemetery buries people in the order received so it will be easy to keep updated.

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.)

I have completed taking the pictures in Emeth Shalom Cemetery, Cardiff, NJ. I will hopefully complete entering them into FAG by the end of 2014!

Also, if I claim a photo request for an area not local to me (Stafford, VA) 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. :)

Edits and Transfer requests should be made through the edit tab. Thanks.

Hi Carol,
Can you tell me how to locate the workman's circle section within Rodef Shalom cemetery? I'll be traveling there with an elderly family member and any information will be helpful. Thanks, Sarah

RE: Betty Snook
I have deleted our memorial and sent a message to the orig. manager telling her she has the wrong Jack Snook connected with Betty. There are 2 Jack Snooks buried in Penwell Gabel. Hopefully, this will get changed.

Please give me the memorial number of the original memorial. I don't find it under Snook or Barngrover or Drum. Nancy

Thank you for letting me know that my computer "hiccuped". I deleted the 2nd memorial that I created.

Best regards

Is this Rose Kammerman with the marriage to Samuel as her second marriage after she became a widow?

Helen Williams death date
I saw your photo request for Helen Williams at Green Mount Cem. You note a discrepancy in her death date. The MD death certificate index has her death as 5/3/1955 on cert. # 4023 which confirms the listing and the obit reference.
If you want a photo of her marker, please contact the cemetery office to get her plot location and post that with your request. They only give two locations without a charge, and volunteers usually have their own people to look up.
Good luck,
Dan Phelan
