Bio and Links
Bio Photo Lifelong resident of northeastern Illinois, I enjoy visiting the cemeteries and searching out headstones, photographing and posting them and trying to weave the links together of other family members in that cemetery or other ones nearby, so that other researchers can utilize my findings. My areas of particular interest are Lake County (where my family started off in this country), DuPage, Kane, DeKalb and Kendall counties, and also Morgan and Scott counties in southern Illinois. I'll also sometimes go out of my "comfort zone" if it's something that looks intriguing.
I try to arrange my photo expeditions according to my schedule and by areas, and of course by weather conditions. I only claim photo requests that I can absolutely fulfill, and try to fulfill them as promptly as possible.
As always, if you'd like to copy a photo, ask permission first in order to let me know how and where it's going to be used, and credit my work. Other than that, I'm happy to help you out in whatever way possible, just contact me.

RE: Robert Dean Chrisman
Your welcome. I can't imagine what these young men's family went through. All six of my great Uncles were in WWII, they all returned home. I can't even begin to imagine what it would have been like for my Great Grandmother.

Dear Sir/Madam, thank you ever so much for adding my cousin's memorial to findagrave! I cannot believe his cremains were abandoned at a funeral home. How sad! George was a very wealthy and respected architect in the Chicago area.

I will be sending you a link to George's mother, Laura.

Sincerely,

Jerry Fair

Per email below, I have submitted edits trying to link grandmother to grandfather, but you are not replying or accepting. PLEASE PLEASE transfer my grandmother's memorial such that it can be properly cared for. Many thanks!
