Bio and Links
Bio Photo Each time I create a memorial I delight in thinking that it may someday provide valuable information to a genealogist or comfort to a loved one.

Transfers - Please use the "Edit" tab on the memorial, send a "Suggest any other correction" message including your "ID number", I'm more than happy to transfer memorials as per FAG rules which are your siblings, parents, grandparents, great-grandparents, children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren. If your relationship to the deceased is not listed, please consider adding the memorial to one of your virtual cemeteries, and use the edit functions to add additional info to the memorial I created.

If FAMILY MEMBERS wish to have a memorial deleted I will do so, no questions asked.

Some dates/names on the headstones are hard to read. If you can help, please click the Edit tab at the top and input the changes. Your assistance would be greatly appreciated in the completion of "Unknown" and incomplete memorials.

Volunteer contributors spend countless hours creating memorials after visiting cemeteries, photographing headstones and obtaining burial information. I am sure everyone would like to know their efforts are appreciated. I know I do.

A big "Thank You" goes out to everyone who sends any info and links for the memorials I've added.

RE: Clarence Koepnick - Union Cemetery
Thank you for trying to get a photo! I am fairly sure I know who this is, and a photo might have more information that will help.

Thank you for posting this picture. This happens to be my mother-in-law's nephew, through this wonderful site we have found her where father is buried. And now her half-sister and her sister's infant son

I personally would like to thank you for the volume of work you have accomplished. As a volunteer myself I know what's involved. I have found two memorials for my Dad's 2nd cousins in England. He is in Ohio and about to turn 90. I have photos to add for them. So again thank you.
