Bio and Links
Bio Photo First of all, let's get this out of the way ... PERMISSION: If you are intending to use my photos for commercial gain, FORGET IT! If you are just using my photos to be part of your own family tree(s) knock yourself out with my blessings. I am a 67 yo Viet Nam era Veteran of the US Navy who retired in 2008 after 30 years of federal service working for the Departments of Navy and Defense. Started working my family genealogy 3 years ago and has a lot of catching up to do. I have found treasure troves of information from very friendly people and very distant relatives. I also have found out how fun history can be as I have found in my family tree, a possible Signer of the Mayflower Pact, several patriots who fought in the Revolution and several who fought in the Civil War on both sides of the conflict, possible very distant relations to the Spanish Throne, a "lady" to an early English king, amungst the riff and the raff. I'm finding that it is easier to find and sort information on those who are long dead than those that have died in the 20th and 21st centuries. I lost my mother in 2004 and she is buried with my father at the Fort Bayard National Cemetery, New Mexico, as is her next younger brother and his spouse. I had not been back to the cemetery to check the headstone since the internment and needed a way to see them ... is perfect. And no, I am not related to pretty much everyone who's headstone photo I have taken, at least that I know of. I am also doing indexing for the LDS Family Search program with over 65000 lines indexed since I started in October 2010. Now that will sometimes blank your eyes and cross your mind. :^)

Thank you
Thank you for taking a picture of my brother, Steven Kriese's, gravestone. I live out of state and haven't been able to "visit" him. I'm glad that I can at least remember him this way.

Thanks again for taking the time to do this.

Thank-you for the lovely photo of Alice Fial. You went beyond the call of duty and obtained a photo of her husband, Fred Fial. You have brought them home. Our family cannot express our gratitude of your kind deed. You are a true unsung hero. Thank-you for advancing the knowledge to the next generation. We will never forget your kindness. The world is in great need of you. Wishing you health and happiness. Gratitude.
