Bio and Links
Bio Photo I started at a young age with the interest for the dead. This photo was taken in about 1957 at the Aztec Ruins in New Mexico. I am on the left and my cousin Diane Quinn on the right.

Researching my family history is one of the most important goals in my life. I feel we should all know as much about our ancestors as possible. Through my research I have been able to spend quality time with my sister, Sandra Bertram MEIER. Researching has brought lots of people into my life I would never have met otherwise. Let's all keep up the good work.

I have just come across my pictures on that someone has used as their own. There is no mention of where the picture came from. This is ashame. For all of you that tramp through knee high grass, work in the hot Texas sun, and in the cold north wind, use your own gas and then try to find a tree big enough when nature calls, you know what I am talking about. Please if you want to use my pictures or anyone elses please have the decency to ask before posting and give credit where credit is due.

"...The copyright of all photos posted to Find A Grave remains with the original submitter. No use of photos for any other website or personal use is permitted without the prior consent of the original submitter."

Since I am getting so many requests for transfers I have started using the findagrave guidelines for transfer. You do not need to own an ancestors memorial page to have a great memorial. I update them each day and will add to a memorial. Just use the edit button on the top right hand of the memorial to be edited.

Hi Janet,

Both her Death Certificate and Obituary reads Ava Lou Prescott Parker. If you would like for me to send you a copy of them I would be glad to.

Sims Family
Is it OK if I use your photos of the Sims family in Farris Cemetery in Walker County Texas on my tree on Ancestry? I am happy to give you photo credit. Thank you, Stacey

Photo fo George L. Chandler Sr.
I noticed that you placed several photos of stones for George L. Chandler (Memorial #133187028). One was of a military stone showing Spanish-American War service. This stone is actually for his son, George L. Chandler Jr. The headstone application lists a death date of 12 Nov 1935, which does not correspond to George Sr.'s 1912 death date. Could you please remove the photo from George Chandler Sr.'s page (Memorial #133187028) and place it on George Chandler Jr.'s page (Memorial #144424092)? Thank you.

John C Koonz
You posted a picture of the marker for John C Koonz, 1928 to 1993. He was a first cousin of my father. My parents elected him to be my "godfather" at my baptism. I do not recall ever meeting him. But his name stuck in my mind. I was pleased to trace him to this spot.
I would like to attach this photo to his entry in my family tree
