Bio and Links
Bio Photo So many people have come before us to contribute their DNA to our family trees and as I unravel the roots of my family I so appreciate people who have gone into the cemeteries to photograph tombstones and spend countless hours transcribing records so I can document my family. I would love to be able to help others find out more information about their family ties and I don't want anyone to be forgotten, so I love that this website gives us the tools to do that.

If I have created a memorial page for anyone related to you that falls within the Find a Grave guidelines, (vertical relationships, not sideways) please let me know. I hold to the Find a Grave rules on transfer requests. I am more than happy to add anything you want to pages and am quick to update. You may add photos and notes to any page whether you maintain them or not.

One note also about getting pages from inactive members that I would like to address. Many have created their own family pages and think they can have them safe and sound without being on this site for awhile. I can't transfer them in good conscience because they can come back at any time and ask for their pages back. Some people have to go inactive for surgeries or have upheavals in their lives, so they take a leave hoping to come back to their pages later. Find a Grave has entrusted to my care some of those pages, so I'm holding them in trust and will only transfer for close vertical relationships.

To get anything added to a page, please use the EDIT tab on the upper right corner and then the top line that says "suggest . ." Also use this method to add additional information to put in dates and places, and the new tab to link children & married couples. Hooray! The linking tool is built into the edit tab now, so please use it.

I have been a professional photographer for 37 years and I know how dear to the heart of a photographer the copyright is of a photo. However, in the case of my tombstone photos, if you would like to use them on other pages like, feel free to do that but please have the courtesy of telling where you got it. "Photo by Sandy VanderTol" would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.

Good catch! Thank you for putting the mother and father in the correct location. It's the first time I've done that and probably won't be the last! Thanks again for the quick update!

RE: DeLong being a Dutch name
wow! I can imagine how that would cause problems in researching! All of what you just wrote is very informative and I think you so much for sharing with me. I did not know any of that and I will definitely keep it in mind while researching my De Longs. Maybe knowing this might help with church records? I am having trouble figuring out what happened to the parents of my Andrew Murray De Long who was born in Steuben County, New York. 1840's time frame. of his birth. ( thats off the top of my head lol) Do they attend certain Dutch churches? The Dutch I mean. I saw a reformed Dutch Church in the area my De Longs are in in Michigan. Do you know what kid of churches they attend?
