Bio and Links
Bio Photo Times are changing with the expanded popularity of genealogy research and memberships to online web sites and etc...

I am one of the early members of this site and have volunteered tirelessly (and spend $100's of my own money) to research the burials and enhance the pages to show people who the person was so people can more easily identify their family or even just enjoy strolling through some of the "cemeteries". Thanks to every dedicated volunteer who has worked with me in this endeavor.

Recently I have encountered people who seem to be more interested in having "power" and control than they are in the original reason this site was created. It is sad to see the focus shift after my co-horts and I dedicating so many years to this.

Please be aware that in accurate historical thinkers, online web "family files" are not considered sources for information. They are merely hints that may lead you to an actual source. I am seeing them being used as references for information on here. I am seeing scores of pages that I carefully researched and then passed on for safekeeping to people I trusted, be "edited" with inaccurate information, which misleads everyone. Sad. I don't know what the solution is, but I don't think a lack of working together is the answer.
