Bio Photo I live in Lorain County, Ohio
My mother started me on family history by taking me all over Michigan looking in cemeteries for headstones and families. Then she would tell stories about everyone. She transcribed all the headstones we found and kept wonderful records. I am continuing on her love of family history and going back to same cemeteries and seeing the family. Thanks to find-a-grave I have found more family and hopefully can help others.
My goal is transcribe local cemeteries, not only the older graves but the newer ones so families can connect. I find I can connect families by their locations to each other in the cemetery with the added benefit of learning the history of the cemetery.

If I manage one of your family members and you would like me to transfer the management please let me know.

Clara Waldsheit Lear
Hi! You added Clara's grave (#61653238) and I wondered where you got the info for her maiden name. I have never been able to find anything on her maiden name. I do know that Waldshut is a town in Baden-Württemberg.

I need your help
I'm adopted and this was my biological mother. I've been searching for information for years...did you know her? Please respond and give me any information you can. I've been unable to learn anything of her as I have a closed adoption case.
