Bio and Links
I have been doing research for over thirty years and enjoy learning new things about various branches of our family.

The memorials I add or manage are either ancestors, close family members or people I have known most of my life in one way or another. I add as much information as possible to each memorial so it will be here for future generations.

I do take photos of headstones when I visit the cemeteries and add them to the memorials. You are welcome to use my photos, as long as they are for your own records & not sold for profit. Whenever they are used on the public websites like please post source as to who took them, whether it be me or someone else.

If you have corrections or request transfers please use the edit button on the memorial page which is located above the photo. Then choose the suggest a correction/or addition hyperlink. I always try to do corrections as soon as possible & am happy to transfer memorials unless they are close members of my family.

PLEASE! If you have information you want added to a memorial go to the edit button and send it to me, I'll by happy to add it and give you credit for the addition.

I would appreciate additions to be done to the actual memorial rather than you adding it by the virtual flowers. Those are to be used as a gift for the deceased. Again, YOU will get credit for any additions. I like to keep the memorials as neat as possible. Thank you!

RE: Pearl Reed
I'm only sorry I couldn't come up with a photo. I've been lucky in my own genealogic hunts, coming up with some over 200 years old.
If I might be so bold, you could consider giveing your cousin a memorial. A simple metal plaque would be something nice, simple, and relatively inexpensive.

Hi Benna,
No I'm not related to James Clarke. I transferred his memorial to you. Thanks for the updates.

Benna J. --let me know if you prefer a different wording of the "Inscription". Also, thanks to you and yours for the respect shown to these family members.

Charles R. Clark Jr.

Wondering if you could help me with the following. I'm trying to find the family of TEC4 Charles R. Clark on behalf of the family who adopted his grave at the Netherlands American Cemetery in Margraten. Charles is the grandson of Heddekel Heddy Clark, whose memorial you added and manage on Find A Grave. I found a lot of information on him, including his immediate family and the fact that he was married to Agnes M. Clark. And then it ends, can't seem to find remaining or extended family. Can you help me out ?
