Bio and Links
Bio Photo I've been interested in (obsessed with?) genealogy for over 15 years. For as much work as I've done on my family, there is much more to be done. We all have those lines for which there is endless information, but there are those lines where evidence proves conclusively they were dropped here by a spaceship and they're usually the people we crave to know more about.

This whole Find A Grave thing for me is a labor of love. It's one I enjoy and take seriously (although not too much so).

There are dynamic volunteers on this site that make this one of the most pleasurable experiences of my life, and, yes, there are others with their little power trips here. I laugh at every single one of them, especially the ones who do nothing more than put names and years on this website.

Reminder: Nobody "owns" anything on this website - Not the pictures they take nor the information they post (unless it is original information the creator researched and/or the pictures are coming from a family member or friend). Those memorials belong to the family members of the deceased. We volunteers are nothing more than conduits in getting that information to the people looking for it.

My sole reason for being here is to help people with their genealogy research. F. A. G. is just one of many ways to help people in their never ending search for their family, but I like to help in whatever way I can.

To think there are people who actually go to cemeteries every single day so they can post hundreds of names to the site every day with no other information just so no one else can do it is just sad. Same thing with the people who take crooked and far away pictures where you can't even read the information on the stone. My motto: Do it right or leave it to someone else who will do the job correctly.

My goal is quality not quantity. I aim to establish as complete a record of a person as possible on here provided the information is of the public record, and that especially consists of death notices and obituaries. If you don't want certain information out there, do NOT put it in a notice or obituary.

I cannot keep track of all of my memorials and I do the best I can to avoid duplicates. The information on here is only as good as the information available.

So ... please email me about duplicates, incorrect information, submit additional information about a person, request a transfer of a memorial, or request deletion of a memorial.

Hi Donna,

I tried to locate my great great grandmother's grave, but was unable to do so. Mr Jolly, the caretaker at Holy Redeemer said that there was no document of her site. Could you provide me any information on the location, history, etc. I know very little about my mom's people and I would be most grateful.

Thank you.
