Bio and Links
Bio Photo My passion each day is to get on Find A Grave and work. Taking pictures of headstones and seeing the lives that were is very humbling to me. I come away from the cemeteries in tears sometimes. I mourn those who have gone before.

I was on a contributor site reading her bio. I want to share a portion of what she said:

"I am getting more and more confused by this site. If people create or post memorials with no OR incorrect burial location and I add a memorial for them in the correct location... I am asked to remove mine because theirs was on first; It seems like there are many rude people on find a grave."

There are many people that want to get huge numbers next to their names. That is not the conjecture of this site. I am here to help others find their past. And in doing that, I help myself in finding my past. If I do post or create a memorial and I don't know where they are, I am in pursuit of finding them. And I won't delete mine if that was the case.


Since has taken over Find A Grave, and the memorial is in their name now, if you are not a "direct line" descendant - you are not able to get it. I have requested to have some family names transferred to me from contributors which have been family that passed away and the memorials are in find a grave's name. Since I am not a "direct line" - they will not. So I am adopting the practice of only transferring per Find a Grave's "direct 4 generation rule". I am happy to transfer your immediate family (spouse, children, grandchild, parents, your siblings, or grandparents). I will no longer transfer outside of these relationships but that doesn't mean that I won't take a look at the situation you have and then make my decision.

However, I will be more than pleased to transfer direct line memorials if they are not part of my own family or family I am working on or friends. Some of the lines I am researching are Masters, Chamblee, Keith, Kay, Hoffman, Veitch, Harding, Randolph, Isham, Totherow, Whitworth, Cartright, Murray, Magnusson, Bird, Stapley, Bliss, Pomeroy, Cunningham, Roth, Harding, Quinlan and Hannum.

Love my ancestors and the treasures they have given me.


Because of the passing of contributor's Kathy McConnell and ancestorsatrest, I have been given a good portion of their memorials to take care of.

Elaine Berger has transferred the Mt. Pleasant City Cemetery memorials for me to take care of.

Laval Chatwin, Find A Grave Memorial# 95345539
May I inquire as to where you found the photo of Mr. Chatwin?

I have a WW2-era photo scan in which Mr. Chatwin appears. I would like to contact his family to share it with them. Can you assist?

Thank you.

RE: Don & Von Christensen
I posted the photo I took for the stone.
I have taken photos of most of the cemetery. It takes me longer to edit and post them than it does to take the photos.I look forward to working with you in the future.
Thanks again, Jane

Don & Von Christensen
I was sending you a message about them and about the correction I suggested. They were twin brothers if you would like to make a memorial for Von I will post a photo for both of them. They are the children of H.L. and Edith Chritensen.

RE: Mary Thibeau
Thank you Penne for I would love photos and thanks again for creating the memorial. My sister had a great sense of humor and she would get a laugh out of this. If she had her way she would leave both of the memorials up and say the more the merrier! Ann
