Bio and Links
Bio Photo My journey through my family history began as a project in 7th grade. At that point I had some names, and some locations. Through the years I have come to know so much more about these people that allowed me to be here today, and I'm passing those bits of information on to my own children.

When I'm not traipsing through cemeteries taking pictures or looking for my ancestors, I am an elementary school administrator. One of my favorite field trips is one where we take the 2nd graders to a local cemetery to find the "famous" people we've learned about in Fort Collins history. For many of the students, it is their first trip to a cemetery.

This is all about connecting families, and documenting history for future generations. If you have information you'd like me to add to a memorial, just let me know. If you'd like to take over management of any of the people I'm not related to, I'd be glad to transfer management over to you.

**If you notice that some of my pictures are sideways or upside down, I'm guessing you're viewing them on an Apple product. I sometimes will use my iPhone if I don't have my camera with me, and for some reason it rotates pictures even if I rotate and save them correctly.

I was wondering if you think the headstone photos of Memorial #56350076 and #55984528 are the same one just front and back? I'm trying to pair husband and wife. Thanks.

I was wondering if you could help me. I am doing some family research for my father. Leona Whistler was his mother and Ross Whistler was his dad. I am trying to do some research on his mother. Her maiden name is Miller. He cant really remember to much after the stroke. But his family names that he remembers is Charlie, Leonard, Chet and Keith. They were all Millers. He was very close to his mother and would like any additional information.
