|Bio and Links|
|I've enjoyed genealogy since the early 70s when I would send out letters typed on a manual typewriter left over from college and enclosed a SASE (self addressed stamped envelope).|
I've lived in Alaska since 1968. On trips "outside" I'd visit cemeteries where my ancestors were buried. I like to stand at the gravesite and look around at the surroundings knowing this is what my people saw when they said goodby to a loved one.
I've been fortunate to inherit family photographs and have uploaded those to Find-a-Grave.
In the summer of 2013 I helped update the records of the Spruce Grove Cemetery in Kasilof, Kenai Peninsula Borough, Alaska. In October of 2013, I photographed markers in the Anchor Point, Kenai Peninsula Borough, Alaska cemetery and added burials which were missing to Find a Grave. In June 2015 I added Tyonek burials listed in the 2004 book Cemetery Inscriptions and Area Memorials in Alaska's Kenai Peninsula Borough. I am willing to transfer any Spruce Grove, Anchor Point and Tyonek burials.
Spent the holidays 2013-14 in Boulder, Boulder County, Colorado and took photographs of some of the markers in the Mountain View Cemetery. I work on photographing the markers in that cemetery every time I visit. As I travel, I take photographs of markers and if they aren't listed I add the people to Find a Grave ... most recently Kodiak City Cemetery in August 2015. I am very willing to transfer any of these entries.
Thank you for having such a site.

Thanks for the photo updates. I really see no reason to delete either yours or mine. I appreciate the updated photos, however I took the one listed while visiting the cemetery with my Father, who has sense passed. It was the only time I've ever been to that cemetery as I live in Ohio and it holds very special memories for me and my son.
Please leave yours there too, they are very nice.

His name was not Terrence, it was Terry. I am in communication with her grand daughter on ancestry. She has no idea where "Terrence" came from, his name on both of his children's birth cert is Terry Charleston Smith.

Hi Kari - I think between the two of us, we are steadily making progress getting MVMP photographed. (-: I deleted the shadowed photos you pointed out. It's not my preference to end up with shadows, but I figure if the names and dates are legible, a photo *with* shadows is better than no photo at all. Sometimes I'll make a note and reshoot them, but not always. Take care, Amy

Thanks for taking the updated photo. I didn't take the pictures so I can't delete them. You might contact amys #47855684. Because they are her photos, she is the one who can delete them. Thanks again.

Hello. I have printed your kind report of the sorry condition of Jacob's headstone to file with his family info.
Since the row and lot are known, can't someone take a photo of the unreadable headstone and post it to Find A Grave?
Bless you for all you do. You make me happy.

Did you enjoy seeing his photo?
|Ancestry Daig||RE: Aurela Ripley|
I understand. And that is the correct way of doing things, until you find a source: "Winslow memorial, family records of Winslows and their descendants in America, with the English ancestry as far as known
Volume I.Back matter"
"Aurelia Winslow married Eleazer Pratt. They had two daughters, AURELIA and Rachel, who married two brothers, Soloman and Simeon Ripley." Page 451 of 1536 at ancestry.com.
This will help everyone to source her correctly and not get thrown off with the misspellings.
I do want to addthis also, that I never take the name written on the gravestone as the truth. I've seen many errors on stones over the years. It's always good to get other sources and compare.
I am related through the sister of Aurelia Winslow, Celia Winslow. Celia is the mother-in-law of my 2nd great-grandmother, Esther Emery. Many regards, Mike Daigle

I live in Berks County, PA...very close to where the Mohn Family originally settled near Mohn's Hill and the town of Mohnton. My link to the Mohn family is Susanna Mohn, who was Ludwig Mohn's daughter.
