Bio and Links
Bio Photo I'd like to say thank you to the wonderful people on this site that grace me with patience. I attempt to do all corrections and transfers within 30 days.

I am a mom of a three-year-old, A proud full-time student at Indiana University- Kokomo, and bring home a little bacon, too! Patience is appreciated! Requests are best made here or via the "Suggest a Correction" button within the "edit" tab on each memorial. Many contributors follow the family guidelines regarding transfers. That should be respected, since this is not a primarily genealogy based site. I, on the other hand, have no use for these memorials.... Want it? Just ask. Please don't delete it. The photographs are my passion. With that in mind talk to me before reposting them :)

Current projects:
***Heusing Cemetery - Kankakee County, Illinois
- Have all pictures just deciphering and will add
***Barnett Cemetery - Howard County, Indiana
- Have cemetery 80% photographed and will add
***Saint Paul's Lutheran Church - Beecher, Will county, Illinois
- Recently uploaded a transcription from 1980. I do not have photos yet. And these stones are highly illegible. If you want or have been planning to photograph this cemetery please contact me, I will be happy to share this transcription which was done grave by grave.

Happy graving!

Walter Fiedler - Adams Cemetery in Crete, IL
Sparky - thanks for creating a page for Walter. I submitted an alternate grave photo along with a change to Walter's middle initial (it was obscured in the original grave photo). Walter is my 2nd Great Uncle - thanks again for creating his page.

May I use the headstone picture you posted for Columbus and Amanda Long? They are ancestors of mine.

RE: Halsted
I tried to send you all the correspondence from me to Lowell public library but it was returned unable to send by email but the library instructed that the article and picture may be used if referenced as follows: From the Lowell History CD-Rom, compiled by Gregory Jancosek. The CD-Rom contains photos from the Richard Schmal collection and the Lowell Public Library collection, as well as photos from other sources.

RE: Halsted
I've sent you and email with the link to the article I copied. I believe the same accreditation given to the photo is the same for the article.
