Bio and Links
Bio Photo I have been researching my own family (off and on) since the early 80's. The internet has been a blessed research tool for someone like me who has spent too few years where my Danish and German ancestors settled.

My husband and I are both retired military and the grave information I've added reflects two transfers. My husband's military path led to a wonderful assignment at Fort Huachuca, AZ. While there, I began collecting the names in the post cemetery.

Then the army took us to Fort Hood,TX for fourteen months where I "adopted" the Killeen City Cemetery in nearby Killeen. I did not do nearly as much as I had wanted there, before we were once again on the road back to Ft. Huachuca in August 2005.

I am currently working as an associate faulty member for the Center of Life Long Learning at Cochise College teaching basic genealogy classes, and also enjoy writing a genealogy blog on word press. You can view it at: I still photograph cemeteries whenever I have the chance, and enjoy the fellowship of

I am happy to help fellow researchers whenever I can. If anyone needs help in the general area, I will try to be of service. ("General area" is relative, as many of the small cemeteries in the area are twenty, thirty or more miles from a town of any size) Feel free to email me.

Hi Jean: My line starts w/ Medine Preston 1741-1818 Ashford, Conn. his son Esek Preston 1770-1859 Eastward, Conn, his son Zephaniah Preston 1795-1877 Hartford. All of Zephaniah's children are accounted for in NY, Conn & RI. For the older generations I have only done a straight line search father to son to me. If any of the aforementioned names are familiar, let me know will be glad to share info. Bill Preston in Saratoga, NY. PS: My gr grandfather came to New York from Hartford, Conn in the 1870's.

RE: Christensen Headstone Photos
You are very welcome. I was amazed at the number of Christensen's at West Lawn Cemetery. I photographed several more, but have not yet entered them all yet. Check back at findagrave, West Lawn for more of their memorials. If you would like any transferred to you, please just ask, including their memorial number.
