Bio and Links
Bio Photo ATTN: I will be off line until sometime in June. I am changing internet carrier, etc. I will answer emails and do edits as soon as I can from the library.

Thank you for your cooperation!!!

I began contributing to Find A Grave as a means to record the headstone inscriptions I had transcribed from walking many cemeteries back in the day, mostly Polk, Madison, Clarke and Warren counties in Iowa and mostly relatives. This was before Find A Grave and way before Find A Grave turned into a genealogical site. My main goal is to preserve what was written on the headstones and to learn about the people.

Recording headstone information is more than numbers to me. I have been contributing to Find A Grave for almost 8 years. I have under 5,000 memorials. I do not transfer just because it was requested. I have never had a problem with anyone on here, until today (August 28, 2013). Threats and name calling does not work. If adults didn't act like bully's neither would their children.

Please contact me by clicking the edit tab on the upper right hand corner of the memorial and then clicking the suggest a correction link. Please provide your source! I have been getting a number of messages containing incorrect information or guesswork. Family trees on another well known website are NOT sources.

I removed my email address because of spam. Recently it has gotten terrible!

Include all Find A grave memorial numbers if you are wanting me to link memorials please.

I have countless hours in walking cemeteries, travel, reading microfilm, transcribing newspaper articles, etc. as do other contributors. It would be very considerate to give the Find A Grave contributor credit when using the photgraphs, bio's, etc on your public family tree's.

Thank you!!

ID Military in Westlawn-Hillcrest
We are currently working to identify anyone buried in Westlawn-Hillcrest Cemetery Omaha NE that has served in the military. If you have a loved one entombed there or know of someone, please send us a message. We place flags on the graves for Memorial Day.

If you can send us the names, we will be sure to include them on our list to get a flag.

Thank you for the help with this ongoing project.

Re: Anna Ritter London
Hi Karen
For some reason I cannot find her obit on my computer. I don't remember getting it but my memory isn't what it used to be. I would appreciate it if you would send it again. Thank you for all you so for findagrave.

RE: Wm Hyer.
The length is fine, 'bio' can hold quite a large amount of info.

Hi Karen,
Would you mind sending me the obit so I can put it under 'bio'? There are 3 pictures of the stone and the last one won't come up with the others because the obit takes up too much room. I can't copy and paste it.
