Bio and Links
Bio Photo Dec. 11, 2014 - The virtual cemeteries on my list that start with an asterick are one memorial in each of the international cemeteries I have worked on. I use this to easily find each cemetery.

Interesting projects I have been working on. (Newest work at top of list):

Dom St. Petri, Bremen, Germany with photos from Sept. 2014.

Goodwood Motor Circuit Cemetery, Chichester, England with photos.

Chichester Cathedral, West Sussex, England with photos.

National Cathedral of Denmark, Copenhagen. With translations.

Sankt Petri Kirke, Copenhagen.

Oude Kerk, Amsterdam is a 14th century church that became an indoor cemetery. Each stone in the floor covers between 2 and 7 graves. I have found a lot of genealogical information and I have photographed both the stone and the area of the church the stone is in; you get a sense of the size of this place. BACK OFF, girls! The silver fox in a number of the pictures is MINE!

China Ashes is my list of people who died in China and the disposition of their ashes was lost. It is especially interesting considering how many of these individuals I could find photos for.

Royal Naval Cemetery - Liu-kung-tao

Holy Trinity Cathedral and the story of the ashes there (or are they?)

Taiyuan Massacre Graves

The Rebellion Cemetery of 1900

Yangpu Public Park

Heping Park

Weihsien Civilian Assembly Center

Coming soon: Photographed Bremen and Copenhagen graves!

-Recently I have been including a list of my sources to be placed under the ADD NOTE tab. PLEASE do not post my name and number; my ego just doesn't need that and your bio will just look sloppy. My greatest reward is a beautifully formatted memorial. THANKS, YALL!

RE: Hannah Minerva Jones Jenkins # 119596443
I found the connection in Family Tree, ID #
9NDH-WMC. The wife of Rev. Horace Jenkins was known to be Hannah Minerva Jones, born 24 Sep 1830 NY. The Hannah M Jones found in 1850 and 1855 with the Denison Jones family in Harrisburg, Lewis, NY fits this perfectly. Several members of the Jones family had degrees, so it is not unreasonalble that their daughter Hannah attended Madison (Colgate) University, where she no doubt met Rev. Jenkins.

RE: J McCormick Memorial# 118480927
Thank you for your reply Rebecca and thank you for the listing. I feel sure that this is my half great aunt and without your listing I would not have known when she died. I am grateful for your hard work. Kind regards, Karen

RE: Philip Pembroke Stephens # 125911838

There were no daughters, the articles will mention sisters and aunts I presume.

His father Pembroke Scott Stephens is buried in Highgate Cemetry and his wife was cremated and scattered near Beachy Head.

infant Ridley
Hi. I found an online copy of the birth certificate stating the name of the infant--Warren Windham Ridley. The names of the parents and the birth date all match.

Thank you so much for photographing the grave of Hugh Waddell and his family.

I see that you may have misread his place of birth, which was OULEY in the parish of NEWRY, County DOWN, Ireland. Nothing to do with County Offaly!

Best wishes and keep up the good work.
