Bio and Links
Bio Photo "Genealogy Without Documentation is Mythology".
"If You Can't Prove It,Don't Claim It As Fact."
And let's not forget some of our Grandmas favorite euphemisms..."Saying,Thank You,Opens Many Unexpected Doors - Failing to do may close those doors tight forever"...Philippians 2:3 & 4

"Do nothing from selfishness or empty conceit, but with humility of mind let each of you regard one another as more important than himself; do not merely look out for your own personal interest, but also for the interest of others. Have this attitude in yourselves which was also in Christ."
Thank you,to my good friend,Donna H.
To the folks who use this site & continue to share the information they find,freely with everyone,you have the never ending gratitude of 1000s of researchers who use this site.
To those other people who go thru life with a general bad attitude or who feel that they are entitled or exempt....This AIN'T FACEBOOK...So keep your drama & insults to yourself !

Please remember that the majority of the members of this site are volunteers, both for entries & photo requests. They spend time & money to do this out of a love for history, to memorialize those who have gone before & to remember beloved family members. It requires cooperation & teamwork. If you don't like to do these things, I'll suggest that you take up a different hobby.
I've been a local Volunteer for over 10 years with the original Random Acts of Genealogical Kindness/RAOGK website operated by Doc & Bridget Schneider,until it ceased operations; a volunteer Researcher,Contributor,Look-Up volunteer & Cemetery Transcriber on Rootsweb,Pa-Roots & the USGenWeb Project in Pennsylvania since 1996. So with over 39 years experience as a Genealogical Volunteer,creating memorials here on FindAGrave is not a race, It's a quest to create accurate,useful & meaningful memorials for those who have gone before us & for all who find them here.

My main objectives:
Photograph our local cemeteries,locate lost burials & follow up with any extra researched information I can find to add to many of the memorials I have had the honor to create here on FindAGrave.
All additional verified sources can be seen listed at the bottom of the memorials bio sections,for researchers convenience.
BEWARE of transcriptions,published ,online or otherwise-Many mistakes have been found in popular locally published works...I walk these cemeteries,verify against burial records & multiple sources.
Please take the time to read the FindAGrave FAQs.
Please use the EDIT button when submitting additions,corrections & transfer requests.
All messages made on this page for adding,correcting or requesting transfers of any of the memorials I manage, will be removed.
If you have a lot of information to share,use the
line option titled "suggest any other addition or correction" found under the EDIT button on each memorial & PLEASE include your sources.
I follow the FindAGrave Guidelines regarding memorial transfers which means, direct relatives within four generations or your siblings, parents, grandparents, great-grandparents, children, grandchildren & great-grandchildren.
"Out of guideline" transfers will be considered depending on the situation ;please explain your relationship and we'll go from there.I will not transfer memorials for folks who are related to my own family lines.
Before entering a new memorial, I always verify 1st that another memorial for an individual does not already exist. In turn, I ask all contributors not to create duplicates of any existing original memorials.

Remember....Sources,citations,friendly conversations & discussions are always welcome !

RE: Lloyd McCloskey
I am not a computer whiz. A couple of days ago I discovered that my Junk email folder had about 200 Find a Grave requests in it. I am working thru them now. Thanks for your patience.
