Bio Photo Genealogy - isn't it addictive?
My mother's interest rubbed
off on me back in mid 1970.

She would visit relatives and as they
discussed relationships, she would write the info on a note pad and later type those notes so others could read them. Of course this was about 12 years before the introduction of personal computers.

I became somewhat interested by helping her
fill out a genealogy chart that was in a kit
she had purchased.

In addition to her visits to relatives, cousins, etc. she also visited the local library and read published genealogy books, and scrolled through the microfilm reels.

Times have sure changed. We still have books for research, but we can now search the US Census from our home computer and do so much more.

My research is mostly in Illinois, Kentucky,
Missouri, Tennessee and North Carolina.

(Note: As a courtesy, please contact me for
permission to use any of my photographs).

Thank you
Thank you so much for taking the nice photograph of Lester Hancock's tombstones. I appreciate the fact you traveled to this cemetery, took the picture at his gravesite and attached it to his site here on find a grave.

Best to you!

Thank you for the photo for Singleton Crain. I'd hoped the stone would be easier to read, but that's just how it goes. Thank you though!

Thank you very much for taking a picture of Lon's gravestone. Your time and effort are greatly appreciated!

Did you happen to notice whether or not his wife was buried beside him? She isn't on Find A Grave, and I cannot find a death certificate for her. I don't want to create a memorial without being sure where she was laid to rest.
