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.

INFO/CORRECTIONS
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!

LINKS
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.
Thanks.

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.
Thanks.
