Bio and Links
Bio Photo My interest in genealogy began 65 years ago when I followed my mother's and grandmother's conversations as they traced relationships of their friends and family.

As a Find A Grave photo volunteer for Lone Fir Pioneer Cemetery, I sometimes stumble - literally - over a neglected or forgotten grave marker. I add information or create memorials for the lives I discover in this way.

I've lived in Portland since 1985. Do not presume to lecture me on the city of today or yesterday, the history or current status of Lone Fir Pioneer Cemetery.

If you have rules and procedures and requirements for memorials and photos, don't expect me to follow them. As far as cleaning headstones? Don't be silly. I clean off the bird ****, wipe the dust, pull the weeds, rinse the mud. What good is a photo where the name can't be seen or the dates visible?

Thank you!
I really appreciate you photographing the burial plot for "Boy Soper" though I'm disappointed there was no marker indicating his name. Thanks so much! :)

Thanks very much for the photo. I am trying to track down some Dolph ancestors and just need verification of dates. Thanks again for your time in getting this.

Posting Newspaper Obit, etc.
They call it plagiarism when one knowingly posts other peoples and company(s) work without giving them 'full credit'.

You need to give, full name of newspaper, date of article, page printed on and where newspaper was published.

If you don't you can be sued and Find A Grave will remove you as a contributor when your work is called to their attention. It is no laughing matter. Read Find A Grave rules... they do not want to end up in court because of members actions.
