Bio and Links
Bio Photo I have been working on my family tree off and on since I was 12 years old (so over 42 years). I feel it is often like a treasure hunt. I enjoy researching for others and enjoy seeing how much information I am able to gather for them.

My love for genealogy came from my father, Rev. Geo. K. Swartzfager. He was a minister and was able to learn and remember family members of most of his parishioners. I seem to have this same ability often to the annoyance of my own family. They often seem to feel this is a curse but I feel it is a blessing that I have gladly inherited.

As I said, I am willing to do research for others. I have several books to assist in this research: Cemeteries of Crawford County, Ohio, Volumes 1, 2A and 3; Marriages of Crawford County, Ohio 1831-1997; History of Crawford County, Ohio; Index of Applications of The Pioneer Families of Crawford County, Ohio; and Families of Crawford County, Ohio 1977-1978.

Please do not make duplicates of people I have added to Find A Grave. I am willing to make transfers whenever the person is not related to my family. I will try to respond/transfer as soon as possible. I enjoy working on Find A Grave and visit cemeteries to take pictures as often as possible. While in a cemetery in Pennsylvania, I met a cousin (living of course). You never know what you may find. A friend says she can't go by a cemetery without thinking of me. My daughter just thinks its creepy. Hopefully someday my children will inherit some of my genealogy insanity.

Since neither you or your husband descend from Mary (or her husband Joseph) and they are my great-great grandparents, would you be willing to transfer her memorial so I can add a short Bio? Joseph's memorial is already complete. I think Bruce added that long obit.

Otherwise, I will send my Bio to you through edit. I may want to add more in the future (She actually was 99 when she died- the date was mis-read from the headstone, so I just corrected it in an edit).

Thank you...Kay (kw)

Re: Ethel Fisher
Ms. Scott - I received your message stating the record I entered was in the wrong cemetery. Kindly inform the Find A Grave # for the correct Ethel so I can conduct research. Thank you.

Kathy: I appreciate all the work you do for genealogy, however, I do not attach obituaries to any memorials, to protect the living. I am more than willing to transfer most memorials I have put on find-a-grave. If the family is interested I'd be willing to transfer Mary's memorial.
