Bio Photo First off....FEEL FREE TO USE MY PHOTOS OF HEADSTONES in your family trees...they're the last photos taken of our loved ones' time on this earth....The writing on headstones will fade over time but these pictures on findagrave will not.....

I've been doing our family genealogy for about 6 years now. I started my journey by looking for the ship my Grandfather came over from Yugoslavia on. I had the information on my Grandmother, but I could never find Grandpa's. Two days ago, on November 10, 2006, I finally found it!!! What a joyous moment for me! Because of my quest to find my family, I've been able to trace my husband's family back to Stephen Flanders (thanks to all the Genealogy books and family trees by Flanders family members), the Mansfield's back to Samuel (1804), and the Wolff's (Wolf, Wolfe) back to the 1700's. What a journey! I am really hooked now on finding our family. All four of my Grandparents were born in Yugoslavia and Lithuania. My parents are the first generation American. Needless to say, it's going to take me a lot longer to find MY roots! I really enjoy walking through cemeteries and taking pictures of unique headstones and the headstones of veterans. I take a picture of EVERY headstone of Flanders, Wolf, Wolfe, Wolff, Mansfield, Josephites, Josephitis, Juozapaitis, Altabas and other family names that may be relatives, because I know that someone--somewhere--is also looking for them. If you are a relative of any of my postings and want me to add family information, please e-mail me. I know how important the names of spouses, parents and children are to genealogists..so any information on my postings are a big help!

Hello,
I would appreciate the transfer of this memorial to myself. Glenn is my paternal Grandfather. It would be nice to have his wife Catherine Thrush transferred as well. I would like to enhance the memorials. Thank you for your consideration.

hello Miss Donna,
hope all is well with you. I was wondering if you would consider transferring my great grandfather John R. Kirk's grave to me? He is in Maple Grove of Granville. I could add his obit.
Thank you,
Will
