Bio and Links
Bio Photo I love American history, I like dealing with names, and I love solving problems. It was just a matter of time before I got into genealogy! 

None of the memorials I have posted are my relatives, and hence I have not researched them. I do try to add some detail to memorials though in an effort to identify the person. 

If you want to write me about any of the memorials I've created, please leave a message on this page. To suggest a correction or edit for a particular memorial, please use the Edit button at the top of its page. I do not automatically approve all suggestions, meaning I need some sort of proof of new information. If I can't find any proof myself, I will ask you for it. (Note: Family trees on FamilySearch or Ancestry are NOT sources, and I will not add something just because it appears in someone's tree.)

If I have posted a memorial of one of your relatives and you would like the memorial transferred to you, please use the method that FindaGrave has provided, which is thus: Go to the memorial page and click the Edit button. Of the choices that follow, click on "Suggest any other correction or addition." This will bring up a message box for you to write me, and the email FindaGrave sends will include a link to the memorial as well as to your profile page. Simply write me a note requesting the transfer, and tell me how you are related to the person.

If there is an article that I have posted that you can use, feel free to copy it. All articles are in the public domain, that is, not copyrighted anymore, so you do not need my permission to use them. You'll find the source of the articles in the picture's caption.

Any gravestone pictures I shot myself as well as I could. Please copy and use them! Post them in your family tree on Ancestry or wherever. That's why I took them.

Last, I would ask folks NOT to post death certificates on my memorials because I feel they are not appropriate for a picture. It's just my preference. Thanks.

FindaGrave is a great website even though it's basically all about deaths! Still, it makes me think of the verse "And this is the testimony: God has given us eternal life, and this life is in His Son. He who has the Son has life; he who does not have the Son of God does not have life." (I John 5:11)

Robert Crackel
Hi Julia:

Thank you for your kind words regarding the photos I left on your memorial for Robert Crackel. Why don't we leave this memorial under your direction. I would be interested if you have direct knowledge of this family. I have another group photo that has approx. 12 females who have been identified by a trusted source. I would like to send it to you to confirm the Crackel component of the photo. If you would like to look at it I would be pleased to send it to you for comments.

bye for now,

Minnie Schrandt
I do apologise for any inconvenience I may have caused you. It was an honest mistake. I had no idea it was a duplicate. I would have been happy to delete what I had and moved the picture. I have no problems correcting mistakes I may have made or deleting things as needed. If this is a memorial you would like to care for, Id be happy to transfer. Again, I am sorry about this.

RE: Minnie Schrondt
Hello Julia.

I said that I'd get back to you regarding Minnie Schrandt. It looks like her record has been corrected.

Is there a policy/procedure regarding duplicate records? There is another record for Minnie Schrandt. The information is limited, but hthere is a picture of her headstone.

Since I'm not a family member, I'll leave it to others to maintain her records. However, it you want me to contact the creator of the other record, I will.

Thanks. And be well.

I assumed that she died in St. Augustine, Fl as she was living there in the 1930 US Census. There were other family trees on Ancestry that had Florida. It is an assumption on my part no documentation other than what I said about US Census.

I looked at my sources and they aren't good enough to change what you have. Please disregard.

Photos Summersett
Hi Julie,
I just read your bio where you provided carte blanche approval to use photos. Thank you for being so generous! I'm the same - don't care if someone uses my photos I took for Find A Grave but still like to ask the photographer just to make sure. Thank you again!

Summersett Gravestone Photos at Park Cemetery
Hi Julie,
Thank you for the wonderful photos of the Summersett family buried at Park Cemetery in Marquette, MI. Would you mind if the family/descendants of Janet and Seth Summersett used these photos in their personal family book and would you provide permission for them to attach it to their tree on with all citations and due credit given to you, the photographer?
