Bio and Links
Bio Photo I currently live in White Lake, MI.
Have traveled to many places, as far as Kalispell Montana to mark my grandfathers parents grave, with custom made markers.

I joined Find A Grave to help others and maybe get some help as well. It's relaxing and good exercise walking through cemeteries looking at all the names.
Searching for the Swan Family isn't easy. You would think with such a short name it would be.

Have been working on my family tree for several years. It has become a labor of love.

also: since 2010 I have been documenting at Laurel Hill Cemetery at Reading, Middlesex County, MA. There are a lot of Swain surname there which often is used alternatively on gravestone with Swayn and Swan. Just a heads up. Back in those days spelling by the King's English or by sound were both acceptable before the standard was established, that's why the multi spelling of surname for family members even within same family plot.

Meeting House Hill (Methuen, MA)
Hi Michael,

I was with Jack Parker today at Meeting House Hill. I am finding a lot of your requests by chance because we kind of split the cemetery by starting photography on opposite ends. Jack photo sets contain a lot of Swan surname as well.

Enjoy the photos, you probably could not get in yourself (the gate is always locked !!). I tried on and off for about 4 years, what a pain.

RE: Davis, Swa
Got back to Meeting House Hill today. Am uploading a number of other Swan and Davis memorials/photos. My camera died halfway through and now looking at the photos - it would appear there is some moisture in there, so half of each photo is a bit blurry. Argh.

Hi... Glad to help and thankful that the snow finally melted away to get access to the cemetery. Best of luck in your research.

Reminder for George Brown
Can you please call the cemetery and obtain the grave location (Section & Lot numbers) and ask them whether or not there is a grave marker?

Forest Home Cemetery: 708-366-1900 or 773-287-0772

This cemetery will not assist photo volunteers with finding the grave's location and the Find A Grave FAQs (Help File) states it is the photo requestors job to provide this information.

Thank you! Ace

Hi! In regards to your photo request, can you please call the cemetery and obtain the grave location (Section & Lot numbers) and ask them whether or not there is a grave marker? Please post this information to the memorial or send it to me.

Forest Home Cemetery: 708-366-1900 or 773-287-0772

Forest Home is a huge cemetery with well over 70,000 burials, and the information is needed in order to find someone there and take a photo of a grave. I go here regularly, and since August I have found over 150 graves at Forest Home that had the location information provided. Thank you! Ace

RE: Moore
Dear Michael,

I am so thrilled that you found the graves of my great great parents and their daughter Adelaide.

I can't wait to share this with my 92 year old aunt who has been helping me with my genealogy research.

Thank you so much.

Hi Michael,

I added yr of birth to her memorial as requested. Please check your email as I have also sent you a very good website with Swans in my area and all over Massachusetts, not sure if you've seen it. Good research tool.
