Bio and Links
Bio Photo I find 'Find A Grave' a great research tool. I'm retired, living in Traverse City, Michigan and using genealogy as a way of keeping my mind active. I have been president of Grand Traverse Area Genealogical Society and am a member of Austin Family Association of America.

I do transfers, links, change information and anything else I can to make FAG a place that is user friendly. It is the members of Find A Grave who make it great place to spend your research time.

If you are related to any person on my memorial list, send me and e-mail or a public message about your family.

My family lines are Austin, Penix/Penick, Paradis, King, Bowman, Joseph, Taft, Seelye, Todd, Pinette, Nadeau, Rose, Reed, Barker, Lovejoy, and Foster.

Carole Alden
Thank you
I was just at Find A Grave Memorial# 21342511 and wondering if she was who I tought she was even tough her name listed wasn't what I expected when I saw you little note. Thank you, she is who I tought she was. I'm working with a box of old pictures from her earlier line and posting the info at and Find A Grave.

RE: Bennett
I am not a direct line but a distant cousin but every so often I do check these lines to see if I can find anymore information. I would like to find a more direct relative. If I do then I will let you know. Thanks, Marsha

Thanks, Mary! Nice also about your daughter being touch with her classmates. The mind knows no time. Lol.

Carolyn “Lynn” Curtis Varney
Mary, I can’t recall if I ever thanked you or not for the exceptionally nice photo of Carolyn’s grave-not only that but for your kind and supportive comment regarding the PHS Project. It has grown considerably since then, but I recall it meaning so much at the time. I was back at the site today to add another picture of Carolyn’s “Beautiful Mansion” where I used to play with her as a child. I needed to have room for her class photo, as well as her grade school. I’m sorry to say it took your photo from the highly visible site it had been–I hope you understand. Regards.
