Bio and Links
Bio Photo I have been researching family lines for about 15 years. Findagrave has been a huge help to me. Contributing to the site is my way of paying it forward.

Due to temporary health issues, I am not able to get out and about as much as I did. Hope to be able to be back out there next summer!

If you would like a relative's memorial transferred to you, please just drop a note. I don't have a lot of time to research the thousands of individuals I have put on this site so please let me know if something is incorrect.

Please feel free to use any of the photos I have taken for FAG for your personal use.

If you are a mean, cranky person, please do not contact me. Life is just too short :)

Hello- I have run into a interesting conundrum with one of the memorials that you created, #70381919, for Elizabeth Van Wyngarden. At first I was just going to alert both you and the creator of memorial 132112617 that these were possible duplicates. Then I noticed that although they appear to be the same person based on family relationships, names and dates, they are actually in different cemeteries (different states even) and the photos appear to show two different stones....which of course had me completely baffled. In pondering this I thought maybe the original intention was to bury the spouses together but plans changed when the second spouse actually passed away in a different state. Anyway, I am passing this same information on the other contributor and maybe between the two of you, an explanation can be reached. If they are the same person maybe a compiling of the memorial pages can be done-- though if my thoughts on the change of burial plan are correct this obviously will cause issues in the future with others who might be trying to update missing cemetery records. Not sure how the Find A Grave people would want something like that handled. Thanks for the work you do in creating these cemetery records and best of luck on solving this one. :)

Hi Bonnie, Thanks for taking the pics of my great grandfather's grave marker. I never met him, but I am doing genealogical research, so I'd like to attach the pics you took to his record. Do I just copy the pic and paste, or what?

I appreciate your time.
