Bio and Links
Bio Photo I've been working on my Family history since I was 11 years old. I started this because of a homework assignment and became hooked when Grandpa explained that he was Grandma's third husband. I had no idea!

I've used this site for a long time, gleaning little tidbits of information that I needed. Then it occurred to me that I may have information that someone else needs so I should give back. I signed up as a member and I've been adding my little tidbits as I find them. I hope it helps someone.

If I claim a photo request for an area not local to me (Stafford, VA) don't panic. It means that I was there and already have the picture and I will upload it once I return home from my travels. Along those lines - when I am traveling I may let you know that I have claimed one of your photo requests. If you will go ahead and request the rest of your family in that cemetery it helps because if I am running out of time, memory space in my camera, or battery I will try to concentrate on requests that have been made. :)


I have taken the photos for Rodef Shalom Cemetery in Cardiff, NJ. I will be entering those as I can. There are over 4000 photos so it may take me most of the winter to get them all entered! UPDATE: 20 MAR 2016 - I am down to only 783 more pictures to enter for this cemetery which at my current pace will take about 3 months. Once competed I will start on Mount Calvary, in Pleasantville. COMPLETED! I am now working on Mount Calvary.

I have taken photos of about 1/3 of the Beth Kehillah Cemetery in Cardiff, NJ. I have completed adding the photos that I have until my next trip. (Except for the ones that need translating from Hebrew to English.) COMPLETED!

I have completed taking the pictures in Emeth Shalom Cemetery, Cardiff, NJ. I will hopefully complete entering them into FAG by the end of 2014! COMPLETED!

I have photo documented the Stafford Memorial Gardens, Stafford, VA up through last summer (2012) so now we just need to keep up with the new additions. But there are hundreds of unmarked graves in that cemetery.

I have taken all photos for the AMAA Cemetery in Brooke, Stafford/Fredericksburg, VA. All names and photos have been entered as of June 2013. This cemetery buries people in the order received so it will be easy to keep updated.

Edits and Transfer requests should be made through the edit tab. Thanks.

I am the only one who took the pictures at New Bethel AMC Cemetery. So yeah she is there. That cemetery is wrong. And it is NOT in Snellville. I will inform the other person.

Thank you for adding the bio for Col. Montague. He was an outstanding example of our military. You have honored him by your work.
Noticed you have worked in several Jewish cemeteries. I was in Baltimore last week taking pictures in four Jewish cemeteries. Some of the graves marker are in Hebrew. Can you read Hebrew. I need some help. A few are completely in Hebrew so I can't enter anything.
Within a six block area of East Baltimore there are at least 7 old Jewish cemeteries. I was there looking for the graves of the parents of Moses Cone, a famous memorial I wrote the bio for. He is buried about 6 miles from where I live, but his family is mostly from Baltimore and Greensboro, NC.

I'm not sure if u got my message or not,as I've had a problem with my phone and my computer. I asked a couple times if you knew or were related to Tim? If not, would you please consider letting me have the memorial? He was a friend in square dancing. I would appreciate it so much. Barbara

RE: updates
Well that wasn't easy...I couldn't click on them either...I guess because there is no first or last name. I had to recreate the steps I took to get there...and that wasn't easy with my memory, or lack thereof! I think it must be # 115076663
and # 115076686.
