Bio and Links
Bio Photo Native of Knox County, Illinois. Resident of Henry County, Illinois. Avid genealogist. I love visiting cemeteries and taking photographs when time allows. I try to keep my eye out for local photo requests. I try to focus on the local cemeteries in my area that have not yet been photographed and also visit random cemeteries when I travel.
Concerning transfer requests...per Find A Grave's rules.....transfer requests should be for DIRECT RELATIVES WITHIN FOUR GENERATIONS. This would be your siblings, parents, grandparents, great-grandparents, children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren.

Many people request far outside those guidelines. I do make exceptions in some cases. Examples would be your best friend, your brother in law, sister in law.

BULK SURNAME REQUESTS SHOULD NOT BE MADE. Do not request a transfer based solely on a common surname.

I always respond to edit suggestions sent via the Edit tab. I only refuse the suggestion if I am personally aware that incorrect info is being suggested.

The full FAG rules on transfers are found here~~~

I will add pertinent info from an obituary but please don't send me edit suggestions asking to include complete obituaries on recently deceased individuals.

RE: Keating's
I have a photo of my husband's great grandfather standing in front of a grave stone in his suit, etc. and this confirms he is standing in front of his in-laws grave stone. Thanks again.

Patti, I can't thank you enough for the beautiful photos of the Keating grave marker! Great photos with more information than any genealogist would dare to hope for. Thanks.
