Bio and Links
Bio Photo I guess I was about 7 or 8 yrs old when I first remember my dad taking me to cemeteries to trace our roots. Now I am an addict to genealogy and cemetery hunting!!! (I think it is from the Mingo Swamp water!!)
This is a wonderful website it has helped me leaps and bounds in my personal genealogy quest!

I like to transcribe entire cemeteries so loved ones can be found, mine & yours. So most of the memorials I post I am not related to. If you see a relative or someone close to you that I have posted & wish to manage there memorial, please just holler & I can transfer it to you as long as I am not related.

I have posted many photos on this site & anyone may use them for there family tree. If you make a million off one of them, please at least buy me dinner.

If you see a mistake or just have more info just leave me a message or E-Mail me. I will be happy to add the info for any additions or corrections.

A question has been asked several times here lately. "Why do you put 'Bio Info Courtesy of' & link that person to the info?" Well I like to keep track of my sources & who sent me what for whom. Also it gives that person the credit for all the hard work they have done. If you do not want your name attached to a memorial that you have given me info on, please just tell me & I will not attach it.

Please do not get upset if I do not answer your messages & e-mails right away. I get alot of messages & e-mails everyday. I try to answer them all quickly but some take longer than others, but I will get to them!! Currently I am working on messages, requests & transfers from Feb 2013.

Happy Hunting !!

I noticed that you are able to hyperlink Missouri Death Certificate numbers on your memorials. I often use the online Missouri death certificate database for research. Could you give me an example as to how to hyperlink the death certificate numbers on a findagrave memorial?

Hello Brent & thank you for all of your hard work on this site. I wanted to take you up on your offer to transfer. I was hoping that you would transfer my niece's grandparents for updates. Memorial# 30646337 and Memorial# 30646329. Also, were there markers & do you have perhaps a pic of them?

Thanks for your help. Sincerely, Eve (#47211467)

Gary Edwin Tippen

Are Robert Hill Cemetery and Hagy Cemetery the same cemetery? I know that Gary and his parents are buried in the same cemetery... but they are listed under Hagy Cemetery... and Gary is listed under Robert Hill Cemetery.

If they are the same cemetery, would you like me to contact FindaGrave to combine the cemeteries?

Did you get my email regarding the Tippen/Typin Cemetery and Wm Tippen Cemetery being the same?
