Bio and Links
Bio Photo I've retired twice and like to keep busy. I enjoy genealogy and have been somewhat active at it for about 20 years. Lately I have begun to photograph cemeteries that have a low percentage of gravestones photographed. As I go through a cemetery I often find unrecorded graves. If I have created one of your family members I will gladly transfer that site to you. In addition please feel free to use or share any photos that I have provided. I enjoy it when family members add information via the edit process.
. With the number of sites I have created there will undoubtedly be some errors. For those I will apologize in advance. Please feel free to correct me when I make a mistake, I will not take offense.

RE: Chandra Hernandez, Sparta Cemetery
You're welcome. Blame it on the genealogy society. They asked me to help update their records. Keep up the good work.

RE: Henry Herald
Orvan, thanks for adding Flora's memorial. I've been looking for her gravesite for quite some time.

Flora is my great grand-aunt. The easiest way to provide all of my sources for her is this web location: Sources can be seen by clicking on the little icon to the right of each entry.

Flora was Henry's second wife. I have been unable to find his first wife's grave.

Let me know if you need any more.

RE: Benjamin Yutzy
You're welcome! I like to have as much info as I can on people to help anyone trying to put their trees together. I know they can pay for it at different places but I can't afford that and I figure there are others that can't afford it either, so if we just help one another with what we have, We should have what we need and a good feeling we helped someone else too.
Looking forward to working with you again. Carol
