Bio and Links
Bio Photo I became interested in our family history as a direct result of the avid interest of my mother and oldest sister. My life has become enriched by this desire to know where I came from. Thanks mom and sis!

I truly enjoy Find A Grave and the Find A Grave community. This growing group of volunteers is so willing to help other researchers!

I am very willing to add to and correct any of the memorials I manage and will do so as quickly as possible. Please help me out by making suggestions through each memorial's EDIT button. This makes it much easier to locate the correct memorial to make the recommended additions and corrections. It will also make certain that I see the request. Requests made through member page messages can get missed.

Thanks much!

FELLOW PHOTOGRAPHERS - the website below has some great tips on photographing headstones, it is a worthwhile read - check it out.

http://www.jillsgenealogy.com/misc/tips-and-tricks/801-headstones-photographing-and-rubbing-information.html

Briefly - some Do's and Don'ts
DO'S:
- do use reflected light to photograph hard to read stones (use a mirror or other reflective surface)
- do get down to eye level with the stone
- do fill the viewfinder with the stone
- do take some close ups and some photos showing the entire stone
- do use only distilled water and soft wood utensil (bamboo or popsicle stick) to gently remove lichens
- do use soft natural bristle brushes

DON'TS:
- don't use chalk, flour, shaving cream, graphite, etc. to read stones (these can damage and/or stain the stone).
- don't do rubbings as the pressure can damage the stone and/or break the stone off
- don't use soaps, vinegar, club soda, bleach, or cleaning solutions of any kind
- don't use wire brushes, sharp metal objects, knives, nail files, etc.

Thanks!

RE: Thank-you
Thanks Jenean. I actually live here (where Greenwood Cemetery is located), and have some additional and corrected information for some of your pages on the Hamans here, as they are my direct relatives, and I have extensive genealogical records. I can send the updates/corrections to you through the edit tab on each one, or, if you would like to transfer those particular memorials to me, I would be happy to keep them updated. Thanks for your work. :-)

Thank-you
Thanks for your work on FindaGrave.com! Just curious as to whether or not you are a descendent of Samuel H. and Angeline Haman. They are my great-great grandparents, and Angeline's parents, Jakob & Elsbeth Stauffacher-Speich, were among the original colonists of New Glarus, WI. Samuel H. Haman was a veteran of the Civil War, having served in Company H, 3rd Regiment Wisconsin Cavalry.

Cora & Vera Benson
Jenean, thank you so much for visiting the Benson family plot in Greenwood and determining that there are no markers for Cora or Vera. The information about their burial location came from obituaries, so I'm confident they are somewhere in Greenwood.

RE: Candace Ringer
Thanks so much! Candace's stone looks great! I think sometimes, dusk or overcast light makes it easier to read the headstones!
