Bio and Links
Bio Photo My researching of family began, after the birth of my grandson Max in 1997, when my daughter-in-law gave me a version of Family Tree Maker. As a child I always loved mysteries. I read my mother's Ellery Queen novels, watched Perry Mason episodes and my favorite board game was Clue. I always thought how much fun it would be to work as a detective. I guess, in my own way, I do.

I firmly believe that our ancestors deserve more than just dates on their memorials. It is because of that philosophy that I try to add as much of the information that is available to me. Thank you for either your help or your understanding when I fall short.

The surnames I am searching and recording from my paternal side are:
Gibson, Keller, Miller, Ploehs, Reed and Walkinshaw
& from my maternal side, they are:
Beamer, Cunningham, Nelson, Peterson, Park, Parke, Parks, Perrell, Snow and Wiseman

For those who wonder...
Why the number of memorials managed is higher than the number of memorials created?
This is due to some generous F*A*G contributors who decided to transfer some of their memorials to myself and others.
Thank you...
I feel honored to be one of the recipients entrusted to care for these postings.

Alfred Raeckers
I visited the graveyard today where Alfred Raeckers is buried and took a picture of his headstone showing the dob as 1901 and dod as 1930. Unfortunately I do not know how to transfer the picture to you at this time.

Thank you!
I am the great grand daughter of Bayard Sink and Sadie Craver Sink. I have seen your name on more than a few of my ancestors as I have looked them up on this site. Your work is so appreciated. Thank you so much.

Find A Grave Memorial# 19372710
John Philip Smith (sic)...if you enlarge the photograph on that page you'll note there's one "l" not two. I wonder if you might correct that when you have a chance. Do you know where that inscription is? It doesn't appear to be facing forward. Are there others on the stone?

Thanks for your help. That's my GGG-grandfather.

RE: Link to children
Yes, that works, but is cumbersome. I can go out and from the child, link the parents so that on the parents site the link turns blue and when you click on it, it takes you to that particular child. You can link children to their parents on the edit page. You can also link spouse to one another. You cannot link from the parents to the child, only the other way around.

RE: Transfers and thank yous
Hello Marcia

This is just how it should work out! I had information that was put on-online and then you found it and were able to connect family members.
