Bio and Links
Bio Photo My primary interest is genealogy, so I photograph surrounding family members' graves when possible, even when those folks were not included in the request. Please feel free to use my photos in your family trees.

I am a recently retired English teacher in Austin, Texas. I am a third generation Texan if you count being born here, but there are five generations of my family buried here.

Please contact me if you have questions about any of the photos I've posted. For any of the memorials I've created, I'll be happy to transfer them if they are not related to me. Even if it is my relative, if you are a direct descendant and I am not, I will make the transfer.

ID Military in Westlawn-Hillcrest
We are currently working to identify anyone buried in Westlawn-Hillcrest Cemetery Omaha NE that has served in the military. If you have a loved one buried there or know of someone, please send us a message. We place flags on the graves for Memorial Day. This project is sponsored by Centennial Masonic Lodge #326.

If you can send us the names, we will be sure to include them on our list to get a flag.

Thank you for the help with this ongoing project.

HUGS of appreciation sent your way!
Thanks EVER ever so much for the family transfers! I cannot tell you what a lovely write-up you have on your profile.

Like you, I love to transfer memorials to interested parties. Though this is findagrave, I have added documents helping other family members with their genealogies!

Many cannot afford and I feel it is wonderful to share these documents with others.

Thanks again for taking the time to take these wonderful photos! YOU are the BEST!

Gosh I love fellow Texans! I certainly did get here as quick as I could!

Mary Hobbs gravesite
Thank you for the photo of this gravesite. A volunteer had also stated her gravesite could not be found. I am so glad the stones were not destroyed.
