Bio and Links
Bio Photo I will happily transfer any memorials I manage to someone who is related to them if I am not.

Also will happily transfer any memorials of anyone I am related to if the requester is more closely related.

Also any and all pictures I have uploaded to this site, I freely share with anyone to use for any non-commercial use they see fit (including uploading to etc.)

I live in Northern Illinois (Rockford area) in Winnebago County. I enjoy riding my motorcycles out to different sites and gathering information on family. When possible I will gather as much for others as possible in order to contribute back to this community that I have got so much information from.

Recently my Fiancee, Barbara Carstens, has been helping me take photos. She is a trooper to be so helpful, especially on the hot summer days, and I want to make sure she gets credit for all her help. Also, as important, I wanted to make sure if you caught a glimpse of any pink painted toes in any photos, you knew they weren't mine. :)

We have to the best of our ability taken photos of every stone in the following cemeteries:

Winnebago County, Illinois:

Bethel Cemetery
Durand Cemetery
Fenlon Cemetery
Guilford Turner Cemetery
Harlem Cemetery
Harrison Cemetery
Hulse Cemetery
Laona Cemetery

If you need photos for Genealogy ( etc. and the person with the memorial copyrights their photos and they are from any of the Cemeteries above let me know and I will be happy to find my photo of the stone for you to have.

My intention is to be as respectful to all the people represented by these memorials as possible, and to the other users of this site. I take absolutely no offense at recommendations, corrections, transfer requests, etc. And mean no offense when submitting corrections. The more accurate the memorials, the better for those looking for their loved ones, both to pay their respects and/or for genealogists interested in their family or local history.

Thank you so much for posting the beautiful headstone photo for Christina and Bernard Miller and for freely sharing it. I live across the country and would probably never get to see this in person. It is also nice to add it to my Ancestry page so there is a reference for my spelling of the names Bernard and Christina (I have records with Bernhard,and Barney, Christine and Christiana)Thank you again.

I thank you for allowing me to upload the marker picture for Beth to Ancestry. She was my father's first cousin. I added her parents and dates.

I am sure that when you shine light at an ACUTE angle over the letters they will be readable.
Cf. craters on the moon: best visible near the terminator, where sunlight shines at an acute angle.
Thank you.

Thank you so much for your quick review of the updates and especially for the obits! Do you have a source for obtaining the obits or did you go to the library? I'd be happy to take Warren 132577825 & Gertrude 132577847 off your hands if you'd care to transfer my relatives to me. Many thanks again,
