Bio and Links
Bio Photo *I ask that you do not copy any of my photos WITHOUT MY CONSENT or WITHOUT GIVING ME PROPER CREDIT. Too many times my photos have been "lifted" from either at F.A.G. or at where they have been reposted to a foreign website and in order to view them, one must pay a fee. Additionally, I have come across many of my photos on other genealogy websites with no mention of a credit.

While I will let most people copy a photo if it is to be used for genealogy purposes, I strictly prohibit people using any of my photos for monetary gain. All I ask is that you give me credit for any photos you would like to copy.

Regarding transfers of memorials - I will be happy to transfer a memorial if the person is not related to me or an ancestor of mine. Transfers should be within the F.A.G. guidelines, i.e., NO BULK SURNAME REQUESTS and only for direct relatives within four generations (siblings, parents, grandparents, great-grandparents, children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren).

As per F.A.G. guidelines, transfers for non-direct relatives (aunts, uncles, cousins, etc.) are not required to be transferred.

With that being said, I have to say that I inherited my interest in "root-digging" from my Dad, who has always been fascinated with history and genealogy.

I like the connection it gives me to the past and it lets me leave something behind for future generations.

While I strive to be as accurate as possible, sometimes human error can occur. If there are any corrections to be made, don't hesitate to let me know.

Thank you.

Thanks so much for linking to father. May I please use her headstone picture on Ancestry? I will credit you and Find A Grave. My connection is thru her brother, August E Barneson's wife, Augusta E Kreiser Barneson.

Dear Wendy,
Where did you get her full name.
Thank you for all your work, helping out others who are searching.

Sander(s) family
Thank you for your work on this family. I was stumped until I found your biography on Louis August Sanders.
Have you noticed that there are not only duplicates but even triplicates in Immanuel Lutheran Cemetery in Cook County? I sometimes try to clean up duplicates but I'll leave this to you. Perhaps you have already tried.

Elaner Vancil Robinson
Thank you for the offer to transfer Elaner but she is a distant cousin. I am not eager to collect all my cousin's memorials but appreciate you adding information to her memorial.

Thank you much,

Hi Wendy
I live in the rock of gibraltar and while visiting my father's grave l have been stopping by a 10 year old girl dorothy cooke toomstone who died on board the steamer carpithia in 1913 whilst the ship was in the bay of gibraltar and it seemed to me to be a bit sad for her to be alone so far away from home and by the words on her stone l can tell how distraught the must hzve been and this has led to my searching to see what became of her family and l can see that they died not long after her, l feel that the only service l can do young Dorothy apart from my saying hello to her as l pass her grave every week is to report her resting place here in the sunshine and if required l can send photos of her stone

Hi Wendy,

Thank you for your work to archive all of the headstones you have done. I noticed a typo on the transcription of memorial # 68204788. The year of death should be 1951 instead of 1961. I confirmed it with his Social Security death index and it matches what the stone says, 1951. Thank you!

Hi Wendy,

I would like you to transfer two memorials to me. They are for Louis Hecht, number 67697843 and Caroline Hecht, number 67697850. They are my great great grandparents.

Thank you.
