Bio and Links
Bio Photo When I was 12 years old, my great aunt gave me a family group sheet with photos & I was hooked. That was 50 years ago & I've been working on my personal family genealogy since then.

About thirty years ago, I started updating the descendants of Azariah Crandall Jr. He died in 1825, in Clark county Indiana. He had 17 children, 11 of which were sons. In just a few years, all of Southern Indiana was littered with Crandalls. It was very difficult keeping the families straight. One of these days I hope to publish my research or at least give the information to local libraries.

The memorials, that aren't my personal relatives, come from newspapers, funeral homes, death certificates, cemetery census records & military records.I am also working on imputing a cemetery in Northern Arizona.

Otherwise, I live with all my dogs & cats in the Phoenix area. I breed Shih Tzus & do kitten rescue. Sometimes I get very busy bottle feeding or with a sick little one. Please have patience with me.

If you have a correction, addition or family links you'd like me to make, please let me know. Click on the edit tab of the memorial & make your suggestion, I'd also appreciate it, if when you post a photo on one of my memorials, that you let me know about it.

I recently had a negative encounter with a person on this site. I am no longer willing to transfer memorials I have created or receive emails. I'm really sorry about this.

I will transfer within the guidelines set out by Find A Grave though:

Simply having someone in your family tree is not grounds for a management transfer request. With hundreds of thousands of contributors, we have many overlapping family trees and it would be impossible for all contributors to manage their entire tree.

Transfer requests should be for direct relatives within four generations. This would be your siblings, parents, grandparents, great-grandparents, children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren.

Explain your relationship in the request! Any non-direct relatives (aunts, uncles, cousins, etc) are not required to be transferred. Keep in mind that the original contributor may also be related to the memorial and may not make the transfer.

Hi Linda,
I am the widow of the above gentleman, and I noticed that this website has him at age 58, but he was born in 1955, not 1956; therefore his age was 59 when he passed away. The site allowed me to edit his dob and dod, which I assume awaits someone's approval before it hits the website. However, with that being said, I am curious how you came to add this information on here? Thought I might learn some tricks since I am a novice. Thanks, Lee Ann Frankford

Abner Crandall, Memorial# 43156389
Thank you for creating the memorial for Abner Crandall, my fifth great uncle. He is the brother of Stephen Crandall, my fourth great grandfather.

I am wondering if we are related.

RE: Lindeborg markers
You are welcome to the photos. There is a family of Lindeborgs buried in a row there including Sven and Klara (father and mother). I recommend you email the cemetery, for more info. Some have only a name and one date (death?). Regards, Bob Lerch

I added the gravestone photo to Ruth Mae Bauermeister Mahler buried at Hanover Zion United Methodist Cemetery, MN along with her spouse Harold. This cemetery is very close to where I live.
