Bio and Links
Bio Photo I am a genealogy geek too! No surprise there! I love helping others and never mind transferring management of an acct or editing info. If I own an acct or even manage one don't be afraid to ask if you want it. Sometimes I suggest a date addition or something after taking the photo and people will transfer management of the acct to me to edit even though I am of no relation, so I am always happy to send to a family member to manage.

***I have recently taken management of a few inactive acct creators accts in order to make edits and links as I photo survey entire cemeteries. I am happy to edit info or transfer to family members. I have not accepted all their accts just select cemeteries as I photo them.

Feel free to visit my dad's page & leave a flower Find A Grave 43914016

***sometimes when I post a picture from my I-pad while there at the cemetery, it posts sideways but will appear upright for me. Please let me know if I miss this so I can repost the picture. Thanks.

Photo Requests
Thank you for recently fulfilling several of my photo requests.

I'm sorry it's taken me so long to thank you, but my dad was in the hospital about 3 weeks in June, got out 7/4 and then died suddenly on 7/7 (unrelated to his hospitalization). And my oldest son and his girlfriend have been visiting from China from 7/1-8/7 so things have been crazy hectic here.

Thanks again!

I did ask at the office and they didn't know when the marker would be placed. I will check again next month.

RE: Thank you
I uploaded the photo without the marker so the lat/long would be added. This will make it easier to find once the marker has been set.
