Bio and Links
I live in central Florida in Brandon (just east of Tampa). I started doing genealogy just out of curiosity about 15 years ago. My mother gave me a genealogy project that my great aunts had started years earlier (before computers) and my hobby began. I am married and have 3 grown children and 4 grandchildren. Genealogy is my passion and I wish I had more time to spend doing it. I also enjoy helping others, hence my submissions to "find a grave". I like to walk cemeteries and photograph the stones. I have even drafted my husband into helping me, but I love the "alone" time. I know that when I run across something new that has been beyond my reach I am so excited. I hope by submitting headstones that I am able to help someone else find that little something they haven't been able to achieve. You may email me privately at if you prefer. Any photos I take are open for public use. You do not need to ask my permission. Happy hunting.

Yes that is me! I belong to the genealogy society and it was one of our projects to put all of the names of all the Hillsbourough County Cemeteries on Findagrave. I work night shift as a nurse, so in my down time, I can do Findagrave stuff. I try to go to the cemetery after work so I can do the photos from my Iphone at work. Terri (Chihuahua Lover)
