Bio and Links
Bio Photo I started tracing my family tree in 1997. I live in San Diego and have to do much of my work long distance and have often depended on the kindness of strangers.

When I found Findagrave I saw it as a way to honor my ancestors and provide help to those who have loved ones buried here. Not everyone in my family gets this, but I enjoy tramping through cemeteries.

Unless otherwise stated, I don't consider my photographs to be copyrighted. If you wish to use them for family histories, please feel free to do so (though it would be kind to let me know).

I continue to look for opportunities to expand the Findagrave database. If you see my virtual cemetery list, you can see that I have a number of Catholic clergy there. Priests, monks, brothers, and nuns are all celibate and don't have children to visit their graves. Bearing that in mind I like to think this increases the number of visitors they receive.

Annabelle H. Payne
Thank you so much for taking the time to photograph Annabelle's marker. I live in Colorado. I tried to go in and edit the birth date to Dec 13 1897 and her death date as Sept 17 1952. I have been looking for Annabelle Payne for a long time. I am not sure how to do this her Daughter is Antoinette Zimmerley Thompson 10 Nov 1926-6 Aug 2010 buried at Riverside National Cemetery with her Husband Richard M Thompson 12 Sept 1916 - 27 June 2003 Her son Dwight Daniel Long, Jr is buried at Fort Rosecrans National Cemetery. Thank you and God Bless

Thank you so much for taking the photos of the Hollenbeck stones for me. You filled in a wife for William B. for me that I didn't have yet.

Yes, if you would like to transfer I would be happy to maintain her memorial. My research is from the Grommesh line.
Thanks for all your contributions to Find A Grave.
Happy New Year.

I stopped in to visit Joseph Rainville. He's related to the 'orphan' I found in a local cemetery by the name of Julius Rainville. I'm looking for his relatives to find a clue as to why he's the only one here. So far, I've only succeeded in confirming that he is the only one here, and that's just not customary. Now I want to know why.

It looks as if your Joseph is kind of like my Julius... surrounded by family, but still hanging out alone.

I'll grab the photo if you don't mind. Thanks for doing what you do. :)
