Bio and Links
Bio Photo I don't transfer to memorial collectors!! If that is you, don't expect a response!!!!!


I found a statement about links that perfectly expresses my own beliefs. I'm posting it with permission.--------------------------
Let's help the next family member or researcher that visits a memorial by adding all the family links that we know. When family members are not linked, it makes the next person do the research all over again. Also, if we have the information, let's use it before it is forgotten.I also believe that family links make this site easier to use. The easier it is to use, the more it will be used and the better it will get.
Melaney Shaum---------------------------

My number of memorials managed is increasing because I apparently am the succession plan for a few contributors, at least partially. I don't mind, it's easy to maintain memorials.

Henry and Hattie Fitzpatrick
When you were photographing Henry and Hattie Fitzpatrick, did you happen to run across the tombstone for their sons Benjamin and Glen Fitzpatrick both deceased in 1918? Benjamin was my great grandfather. Thank you for your time!

RE: GREAT Cemetery Photo
Thank you for your kind words re the Queen City Cemetery photo. We stopped there to photo the headstone for my husbands uncle and took photos of several stones along with this one. Upon returning home, someone had added gravestone pictures but not the cemetery one. I was pleased mine was accepted.
