Bio and Links
Bio Photo I grew up in Waverly, Iowa & moved with my family down to Leavenworth, Kansas in 1993. I am a May 2008 graduate of Kansas State University and was actively involved with the marching band. I'm a huge fan of Kansas State football and hold season tickets.

One of my biggest interests is in Genealogy and I absolutely love History so its a perfect pairing. I'm fascinated with family histories.

Family names I'm interested in:
Bergman (in IA)
Brandt/Lampe (in IA)
Halweg/Friedrich (in IA)
Tjebkes (in IA)
Stelzer (in IA and MN)
Bohner (in IA and PA)
As for the photos I take for Find A Grave:
If you would like me to transfer any memorials to you I would be more than happy to oblige as I am not interested in stacking up numbers for memorials managed. I think those that have that mindset are very rude people. The only memorials I will not transfer are those for my own family unless very distantly related. Also, if you would like a copy of the original photos posted to memorials please let me know as I am more than happy to send them to you.

I will sometimes photograph other plot markers near the graves where I am fulfilling photo requests. If they have no memorial I create one for them and attempt to give them a story based on what I find on various genealogical websites. If at any point you come across a memorial I've created for your ancestor and I have added information you DO NOT want on their memorial, please do not hesitate to let me know and I will gladly remove it. The same applies if there is something that you DO want added to their memorial.If I have included an obituary on any memorial page and you would like a clipping from the actual newspaper please let me know and I will accommodate. If I have added something you wish to be removed PLEASE BE NICE ABOUT IT when letting me know as I am not trying to upset anyone. I don't wish to be scolded like a child.

I am currently working extensively in multiple sections in Mount Muncie Cemetery, therefore I am very knowledgable about the cemetery and have a good working relationship with the cemetery's manager. If you have any questions about a grave or about the cemetery in general please don't hesitate to contact me.

My current goal is to get memorials up for all the ummarked graves in Mount Muncie Cemetery.

Hi Shannon,
Thanks for all the great photos and information once again! I was a bit surprised by the error on Mr. Bird's headstone, but then again, I have been working with some of the Missouri death certificates where the person completing the information is the deceased person's child and they do not know the name of their maternal grandparents, so I guess it just depends on the family and you are correct, the cemetery records "should" be more accurate than a headstone.
Again, many thanks using your time and talent to document these historical records for future generations.
May you have a Blessed 2017!!!

RE: Emory Hash @Mt Muncie
Thanks. That photo is just what I like when there is no headstone or other clear marker for a burial.
