I became interested in genealogy in the early 1990's and am dedicated to preserving family histories.
I am a member of the National Genealogical Society, the New York Genealogical & Biographical Society and the New England Historic Genealogical Society. I am also am a lifetime member of the Idaho Genealogy Society and the Edmund Rice Association.
I am a Mayflower descendant, have several Revolutionary War ancestors, and three Civil War grandfathers.
My biggest claim to fame is that my great-great grandmother, Laura LaDocia Ingalls Waldvogle Forbes, is the Aunt Docia that Laura Ingalls Wilder writes into her Little House book, "By the Shores of Silver Lake".
I have visited repositories across the country, conducting research and gathering documentation...from the National Archives to various (7 so far) State Archives, the Library of Congress to state and local Genealogy Society libraries, and of course, the Family History Center in Salt Lake.
I am a volunteer transcriber and arbitrator for Family Search. I have done quite a bit of volunteer research in the local (Boise, ID) repositories.
I have begun working Cloverdale Cemetery in Boise as a Find a Grave volunteer. I have friends (but no relatives) resting there.
Memorial# 139026128 Is there anyway to get a photo of Find A Grave Memorial# 139026128? Thank you so much for entering the memorial on the website. This is my baby brother. I have never been to the cemetery.
Woodlawn Cemetery Hi Robin, I would like to ask a favor. My great uncle Carl L Fields Memorial # 139028739 is buried at the Woodlawn Cemetery. Could you please add his parents Memorial #'s so he will fit in with his siblings. His Father's # is 108776674 Ira L fields.
Mother is Lavina- # 93592339 If you have any questions please feel free to contact me. I know Carl was married, and his wife remarried. I can get more information from my mom if needed. Thanks Paula McKinley
Apologies Hello Robin, I'm very sorry I didn't see your e-mail in time to transfer the requested memorial to you. I moved house recently and had access to Find A Grave but not to e-mail till this week. It's a bummer, as whatever biographical information I added for Mr. W. was lost in the merge of the two memorials. I hope you're able to request a transfer from the current owner of the new memorial. If it is helpful, I will suggest it myself (politely) to the new owner through SAC on the memorial. My apologies.
RE: John Henry Melius marker photo Well darn it anyway! Sorry about that! I will have to try again on my next visit down here. I will delete the incorrect one (or did you already?) It may be a few months before I will be back in the area...sorry :(
RE: David McLeod It is the "foot marker" for his grave. You know that little stone that has just the initials (usually).. I liked how it looked with the little C, so I added it. Is this a problem? I can delete it if you wish, but it is part of his grave.
