Bio and Links
Bio Photo I am an amateur genealogist researching the many branches of my family. I live in northern Illinois near the village of Davis Junction in Ogle county. This is just south of Rockford, IL.

Many of the memorials I have added are of people related to me ...but many are not. I often take pictures of other gravestones while visiting a cemetery. If any of my memorials are for your relatives and you would like them transferred to you, just let me know. I would also appreciate any corrections that you notice.
