Bio and Links
Bio Photo Growing up, my grandparents lived next to a cemetery and I took many walks and bike rides through that cemetery. I find the cemetery a peaceful place to gather my thoughts and to wonder about the lives of those I pass.

Over the past several years, I have been researching my family genealogy, and without the unlikely coincidences and kindnesses of strangers, I may not have been able to achieve what I have been able to. This is where F.A.G. comes in. I feel that I can possibly help others in their search, just as I have been so generously helped.

I do take pictures of stones and add names when possible. If you want me to transfer a record, just let me know. I will be happy to transfer any record to you, with the exception of those that are in my family line.

If you have any updates that you would like me to add to any of the memorials, just send me a suggestion via the edit tab and I would be happy to update it.

If I have posted a memorial for one of your relatives, and you wish for me to take it down, please just let me know. I don't like taking memorials down because it may hinder the research of someone researching their family lines, but I certainly will respect your wishes.

RE: Innes & Neil Dickson
Thank you for making the transfers of Innes an Neil.

Thank you as well for all your diligent work in creating the many memorials you have done. Without your hard work our genealogy research would be so much harder.

RE: Innes & Neil Dickson
Hi Shannon,

Yes, Innes Isabell (Jones) Dickson is my 1st cousin, 2x removed. Her mother is a member of the Aeck family (Emma L. Aeck) who married Charles S. Jones. Innes married Neil Moncreiff Dickson.

It would be most thoughtful of you to transfer the memorials so I can add them to the family.

Thank you so much

RE: Aeck Family
Hi Shannon,

I would be more than happy for the transfer of any Aeck memorials. They are direct descendants. William Aeck is my Great Grand Uncle, his parents are my Great Grand Parents on my dad's maternal side.

Thank you for reaching out to me.

Thank you for your attempt to photograph the graves of my great-grand Uncle John and his wife. I doubt I will ever travel to your part of the country, so I am ever so grateful for your assistance. It is sad that the family didn't place gravestones there (probably couldn't afford them) but at least I know that now. May your own genealogy adventures be fruitful. Thank you again, from Robin in Florida
