Bio and Links
Bio Photo 13 May 2014: I am getting too many e-mails giving me information that I have no idea what to do with, requests for edits that make no sense, supposed duplicates but no FAG #'s, etc. I am fairly good at what I do but (unless you are my husband) a mind reader I am not. If you send me something, please explain what you want done with it, add FAG numbers to people you want edited. Please use the EDIT link for names,dates and linking. If you have no e-mail in your profile, I am going to delete the e-mail sent to me.

I was was born and raised in Marshfield, WI. I have been deeply involved in genealogy for over 25 years. Along with research, I have also run a Family History Center and taught classes. I am willing to do research for most requests. I am well located for Wood, Clark, Marathon and Taylor counties. Lincoln and Portage are also near by.

This is my system for doing cemeteries. I have a government job that has strange hours and erratic appointment times. I have learned to carry a camera and area cemetery maps with me at all times. I may have minutes or hours in between things so that may determine how many pictures get taken. I take a picture of every stone as time allows including cleaning up the really nasty ones. I do look over the requests but do not "claim" them because I don't know when I will get them downloaded so that may explain why "requests" are filled "hit and miss". (It's also really to hard to see all those tiny photos in my program to pick and chose certain ones!)I have taken as few as 200 pictures to 800+ per cemetery visit depending on time and the size of the cemetery. I multi-task in front of the TV at night.

Please feel free to use my photos anyway you want. I believe in sharing. No special request is needed.

Also I do not care if you use my personal e-mail to contact me about edits but PLEASE include the name, cemetery and FAG number. I have been getting too many e-mails without this info and since the majority of my contributions are complete strangers to me, it is hard to respond properly with out this info.
Feel free to ask for transfers. Except for my own family I have no special attachment to the 1000's of photos I have taken. I think the comedian Rodney Dangerfield said "Take them, PLEASE, they're mine!"
Recently, I made an observation--Delete and Deliver both begin with "de" which explains why when I am tired I may hit the wrong one so if I don't respond or make an edit try again. I also noted that other words begin with "de" like dementia, demented, delusional and delirium, which explains the rest of me.

RE: Regenfuss
The data matched Mary Regenfuss..

And she does not share a headstone with her husband but now that there is a PHOTO of the stone... well,
My Mary Regenfuss born 1880 in Kansas must be with or next to her husband, John.

GGosh, am sorry, but the data matched...
Looks like the only thing this person has to go by that it is her Mary is it is near the Jacob, and it looks like his headstone as well

All my data is correct I just have contact the cemetery to find out which stone is Aunt "Maud"
B:1880 and lived/died in Marshfield.

Again sorry and I will start my search again..
She has to be in there..

Thanks so much for finding Sr. Raineria's grave. And the information about the name of the cemetery. Hopefully, there is some information that will help with the surnames of the Sisters buried there to connections can be made to their families. Thanks again.
