Bio and Links
Bio Photo Did you know ancestry purchased FAG in 2013?

I am a pluviophile and taphophile and genealogist!

I have completed surveying and photographed 3 small cemeteries (Spanaway Cemetery, Spanaway Lutheran Cemetery & Rainier Cemetery), and started on Fir Lane (more than 9,000 burials)and do some background work. I also take pics on vacations now because it's addicting. Of course I have entered as many family as I can:)

I never say I'm perfect, so just drop a kind note if there needs to be corrections made!

You have done some really good work and I want you to know I understand how much effort goes into recording and photographing graves. With that said, I'd like to make you aware that I have already made a memorial page for Donna P McElyea, my sister-in-law (76558980).
You have also made a memorial page for my brother, Paul A McElyea, who is alive and well living in Eatonville, Washington.
I think the easiest solution would be to have both #125858166 and #125858138 if you wouldn't mind.
Thank you for your time and effort.

Thanks for the obituaries. I had not previously seen them and had not yet taken time to update their memorials, so was happy to get the info and make the updates.
