Bio and Links
Bio Photo It all started years ago, when my grandmother had her ancestry traced back to the poet, Percy Bysshe Shelley. I thought that was pretty cool. Then a handful of old family photos surfaced, and a few colorful stories of my ancestors told to me by my mother got me hooked. All of a sudden, I have a new hobby. I am very new at this, and the information to be found is staggering. It is like a treasure hunt! I also love to visit cemeteries, and on walks I find myself wandering through, looking at the graves. I find them very poignant. As a child, my mother would take my brother and me to the Sunset Memorial Cemetery in Danville, Illinois to see the swans. I learned to drive in the Spring Hill Cemetery (I guess I couldn't do anyone harm there!) As I embark on this new adventure, I am hoping to be able to contribute information that others can use as well. Any of the photos I have contributed may be used for genealogical purposes. I would love to know when I have been of assistance, so drop me a line if you find a grave you've been looking for.

RE: Stevenson Cemetery
That is quite the accomplishment to photograph EVERY tombstone in Stevenson Cemetery! A salute to you! Good luck with possibly matching any of the illegible stones. Sometimes just one portion of a date, or name might be a hint. Sometimes, it's just impossible. Great working with you!

RE: Daniel Kiedrowski - Memorial# 110844664
Thanks for letting me know. By all means, keep your memorial. I have deleted Memorial# 90917825, with last name spelled incorrectly (my error). Not related either - used transcription records - found here.

Wonderful to see you added so many additional memorials, and many photos to Stevenson Cemetery! Thanks again!
