**My email address has changed!**|
I have been in the curious position of being an American in Australia since 1989. I have a great love for both countries. My accent is a weird mixture of both. I remain a Yank in Oz and an Aussie in the US. At least it's a great conversation starter!
I am married to an interesting and hard-working man, and we have two gorgeous children.
My vocation is education, teaching English to adult migrants and refugees. I get tremendous satisfaction from my work.
My passion is genealogy. I have been researching since 1983, a time when I had to duck secretively into the National Archives in case any of my friends saw me. The stories that I have uncovered, although not all happy ones, have inspired me and made me proud to be connected to the people who have come before me.
I am thrilled to have discovered Find a Grave, as it allows me to memorialise my loved ones and document the lives of other family members for posterity.
I am a strong believer that ordinary people live extraordinary lives. They are far more interesting to me than celebrities.
I have been very moved by the many stories that I have read on here. I enjoy reading a well-written and loving biography, and I admire people for being such a positive influence on those left behind.
Please take the time to check out a few of my loved ones, and flower them if their tales strike a chord. I will try to reciprocate.
I would love to make contact with any relatives of the individuals I have posted here, and I would be more than happy to transfer memorial administration to family members or friends. Please email me to facilitate this.

Hi Mary Jo,
The correction is made to Philip Shoudt's bio at Milford Union Cemetery.
Don't know if you heard the news that the Milford Borough Historical Society has the opportunity to acquire the old mill on Bridge Street in Milford. The current owner is willing to donate it under specific conditions.
Hope you are keeping well.
|John Albright||RE: TY|
The photos have been added. It was my pleasure.

Hello, I was hoping to hear back from you but still have not. Do you mind simply transferring this memorial #39965104 to me? I have researched him and would like to add a bio, his photo and detailed information for birth, relatives, etc. JD
|John Donne||Albert Durborow|
Hello, I emailed you a week ago about this memorial. I'm wondering if you are still active since I have not heard anything back.

|Jackie Rogers||Goldie Laura Miller Burket Burroughs|
Your Goldie Miller was born in 15 May 1895 and ,mine per the 1900 census, was born May 1895. My Goldie Miller moved to Hopewell, Mercer, New Jersey by the 1910 census with her parents William J. Miller and Rebecca Wallace. Her older sister stayed with Rebecca parents in Norfolk Co., Virginia. Goldie and her sister were born in Norfolk Co., Virginia. Their father was a lineman for a telephone company. Both Goldie's parents were born in Pennsylvania. I could not find her in the 1920 census so I figured she had married. I do not know how to fine out if they are the same ones. However, they look like the same person except you have her born in Pennsylvania.

I was glad I could help out with the Leidy photo! I have now put it on both spouses' memorials.
