Bio and Links
Bio Photo I inherited the genealogy bug from my mother. I ran across F.A.G. while trying to find information on ancestors. I believe F.A.G. is a wonderful site to find missing family links.

When photographing, I go row-by-row. I am not a greedy request-claimer who will go out, take a single pic, and run back to post it. From a genealogy perspective, I want to know if there are other family members in the cemetery that I may not already know of. Also, if someone has previously posted a pic of the headstone and I get a better one (I am using a HD camera), I will add mine as well.

If you would like me to transfer management of a memorial, please send me the request, and your relationship to that person. I try to transfer to family members if possible!

***** If you send me a message stating "this memorial is a dupe, please delete," please make sure the other memorial has at least as much information and pics as the one in my control. Otherwise it will remain as-is!!!

****If you would like me to add an obituary to a person, you MUST provide me with citation information!!!!!!!!

Transfer Request
Hi Melissa,
I noticed that you are currently managing my great great grandmother's memorial: Martha Ann Nelson #59529212.
I have quite a bit of information I would like to add. Could you please transfer her memorial to me?

Justice's in Fairbury, KS
Hi Melissa,

Going through all the old things on my email I came across a notation on Frank and FLorence Justice buried in the Fairbury, KS Cemetery.
The information on Florence's memorial , ie siblings, should be on Frank's memorial page! I can only correct so much as a contributor but would appreciate it if you could correct the information or I would happy to have both memorials transferred to me

Thanks SO Much

Mary Louise Vieth
I am seeking information about Mary Louise (Traeger) Vieth (1852-1937, wife of Frederick A. Vieth. I believe she may be the daughter of Carl Gotthlieb Traeger and Johanna Christina (Drinsch)Traeger, as well as a sister to Carl August (1843-1913), John F. August (1845-1934), and Ernst H. Traeger (1846-1923). All these Traeger's were born in Germany. If you have any information on this family, I would appreciate hearing from you. Thank you for your help. --Rosemary Trager Matthews

Denney Family
We are friends of the Denney family and understand the Fairbury Cemetery would like to add coordinates to the grave sites so people can locate. Do you know if other cemeteries do this? We go to Fairbury quite often and could meet if you are in that area.
