Bio and Links
Bio Photo I am a former Historian for both the Town of Geddes and the Village of Solvay in Onondaga County, NY. I love to walk cemeteries, especially rural ones, and I love to read old local newspapers from the area.

I "mow the rows" in cemeteries that I visit a lot, and I create memorials for people that don't already have one. I'm always happy to transfer memorials that I've created on to their rightful families. I will also consider transferring memorials that I have created for anyone in my family tree if you are closer in the line than I am...please don't be afraid to ask!!

Please feel free to use any pictures I post for your online genealogy! I just ask for a simple note letting me know you used it, so that I know that I've helped someone, especially if its a photo request I fulfilled for you. Thanks!

***I NEVER USE ANYTHING MORE THAN WATER AND A SOFT BRUSH TO CLEAR STONES OF THE BASIC LANDSCAPING DEBRIS LEFT FROM MAINTENANCE. IF A STONE I HAVE PHOTOGRAPHED APPEARS TO HAVE BEEN BLEACHED OR OTHERWISE INTERFERRED WITH IN ORDER TO BE READ, IT WAS THAT WAY WHEN I FOUND IT***

2014--
Planning to photograph in:
St. Mary's Cemetery, Baldwinsville, NY
Riverview Cemetery, Baldwinsville, NY

Also, entering burials from Myrtle Hill Cemetery records (Syracuse, NY)
*********************************
I invite you to visit the memorial of my hero, Uncle Mike. He was a kid at heart, the playful uncle that we all grew up with. He drowned while trying to rescue a child, DJ Kingsley, from Lake Ontario. There is a big hole in my family now.

I also invite you to visit my Friend, Shonda. We worked together and I've never met such a beautiful soul. She touched my life and I feel blessed to have known her, even if it was for such a short time. She loved her family, her son, everything purple, and just plain life itself. She was never without a beaming smile, and she could make even the darkest moments seem not quite so dark. She will be forever missed by the hundreds of friends she touched along the way.

Thanks so much for the transfer of Charlie's memorial. My grandmother would be so pleased to know that he had been found, and is with family again.

Thank-you for the plot info. Lori. Sorry it took so long, but for some reason I'm not being notified that I have edits to approve. Also, when I click on the drop-down menu and click on "Accept", nothing happens, the request is still there. Please let me know if you receive a notice from FAB that your edit has been accepted. Lori
