Bio and Links
Bio Photo I have been in this business for almost 16years and find myself learning something new on a daily basis. I originally researched only my family's roots however I soon found that my talents could assist others in their quest for knowledge.

Any information on my memorials is either my own or taken from public historical documents. If you are on a memorial with a photo I took, then please ask me if you can use the photo. Thanks!

If you would like assistance with your genealogy or more information on any of the individuals in my database, then please e-mail me!

On your request for a transfer -
Yes, you would be related to Roy Abner as a cousin, but let's be a bit more exact: You are actually his 2nd cousin 3 times removed, making you are rather distant cousin. And, after looking at some of the memorials of those even more closely related to Roy, I see no flowers left by you, and your memorial for his grandmother Mary Louise (Brunson) Abner - although linked to other memorials - has nothing in the bio section, so no, I can't in good conscience, transfer his memorial to your care. I'm confident that I can properly manage it myself.

Again, you are asking me ~
~ to transfer to you my memorial 122787847 for Roy Abner. However, just telling me that you are "kin" to Roy's father, really doesn't tell me much.

Generally speaking, I could say the same thing, and it's true that I am related to Roy, but I'm certainly unable to say just exactly what my degree of relationship is, although I know it's definitely not close.

So, if you want me to consider the transfer, I really would like to know just how you are related - a 1st cousin, 2nd cousin, sibling...

Barbara Keller Riehm and Michael Riehm

My 3x great grandparents are Barbara and Michael Riehm. Memorial #'s 100089020 and 100089028. I noticed on the photo's that these were new headstones throughout the cemetery. Barbara's shows her's in front of the old memorial. Could you tell how all this came about and are there any existing photo's of the original headstones or memorial?.
The new headstones definitely make things easier to read and I appreciate seeing them.
Their daughter Sophia Riehm married Otto Horner and they moved to Minn Sophia's memorial # is 162354819. I have a photo request for their memorial's.
Thank you for your lovely memorials for my great great great grandparents.
