Bio and Links
I am a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and have a great interest in family history. I would love to help others who might need some photos of graves/cemeteries in my area.
I am also a 4th grade school teacher. I am married and we have five children and live in Evanston, Wyoming. I grew up in Michigan.
I would be happy to transfer any memorial I have created or delete it if the family wishes.

Ertmann grave
Thanks for your efforts looking for Marjorie de Haan Ertmann. I know that she was cremated if that makes any difference. I will have to check on it next time I can get to SLC. Bless you for trying!

RE: Hubert Davis Evanston
Hi - Thanks for asking. No I'm not related. I bought some old magazines published by the Brotherhood of Locomotive Engineers. There was a stack of them at the local Friends of Library Bookstore for $3. I bought them for my son, but saw a gold mine of information in the back about retired engineers.

So now I'm tracking down the engineers on Find A Grave to add all this wonderful genealogy info. Sometimes I run across a relative and send them a copy of the article. About 20% of the guys in the magazine are on Find A Grave.

Some of the stories are pretty amazing, but sadly I don't hear back from some contributors. Don't know if they are a "Find A Grave is Only a Grave Registration Site" person, lost interest in Find A Grave, passed away or???? When I'm done and my son has read them, the magazines will go to a genealogy library.

Regards, Phyllis
