Bio and Links
Bio Photo I have been researching my own family (off and on) since the early 80's. The internet has been a blessed research tool for someone like me who has spent too few years where my Danish and German ancestors settled.

My husband and I are both retired military and the grave information I've added reflects two transfers. My husband's military path led to a wonderful assignment at Fort Huachuca, AZ. While there, I began collecting the names in the post cemetery.

Then the army took us to Fort Hood,TX for fourteen months where I "adopted" the Killeen City Cemetery in nearby Killeen. I did not do nearly as much as I had wanted there, before we were once again on the road back to Ft. Huachuca in August 2005.

I am currently working as an associate faulty member for the Center of Life Long Learning at Cochise College teaching basic genealogy classes, and also enjoy writing a genealogy blog on word press. You can view it at: I still photograph cemeteries whenever I have the chance, and enjoy the fellowship of

I am happy to help fellow researchers whenever I can. If anyone needs help in the general area, I will try to be of service. ("General area" is relative, as many of the small cemeteries in the area are twenty, thirty or more miles from a town of any size) Feel free to email me.

RE: Christensen Headstone Photos
You are very welcome. I was amazed at the number of Christensen's at West Lawn Cemetery. I photographed several more, but have not yet entered them all yet. Check back at findagrave, West Lawn for more of their memorials. If you would like any transferred to you, please just ask, including their memorial number.

Oh, my Jean such a clear photo. Thanks so much. I will send you more information to add. You have a heart of gold to help put the family dots together.
Thanks so much.

Thank you so much. Almost everyone on my mother's side of the family for several generations is buried there. There are many many graves that are unmarked and have shifted through flooding in the area and because the mounds of rocks for the grave get shifted over time. The cleared area in the front of the cemetery was not clear when I visited in my childhood. Luckily, the family who is in charge of the cemetery and who originally owned the land, let me make a copy the cemetery manifest that they had. Many of the graves for the names listed on the manifest are no longer able to found or may not be legible on a grave marker in the cemetery. Tubac is near and dear to my heart, and I really appreciate your message and compliment.
