Bio and Links
Bio Photo I'm Nancy, someone that has finally found a past time that lets me exercise my love for walking amongst the headstones at the nearby cemeteries.

It started with trying to locate my own ancestor's graves on a vacation in Maine and has grown to documenting the cemeteries near my home in SE Michigan and my vacation home in Weidman, MI. That I can help others view and/or locate their ancestors is an added bonus! Now when I have some free time, I search for a new cemetery to visit and perhaps photograph.

When I'm not wandering in cemeteries, I'm doing some form of needlecraft - sewing, embroidery and knitting, hence the name 'nannysneedles'. It's my loving tribute to my mother who taught me all things crafty and called me 'Nanny' as a pet name.

Contact me via the EDIT tab if you have changes to any of the memorials I have created. Also, I will gladly transfer management of any memorial to family members.

Be advised that I work a full-time job and volunteer for Find-A-Grave in my free time. Currently I have been working +++ hours of overtime, so I don't get to my Genealogy/Find-A-Grave activities nearly as often as in the past. Please be patient, I will respond to your emails/edits/requests as time permits.

Anna F. Tepley Hoffrichter
Thank You for all the work you have done! I recently found Anna F. Tepley Hoffrichter's find a grave you put on the site. Some of the information is wrong. Charles Paul Hoffrichter 1921-1979 first wife was Anna Barbara Tepley born in 1901 and passed in 1937. Charles 2nd wife was Anna Frances born 1909-1985. You have the wrong Anna name listed on the site Memorial # 10707123. If you need more information please contact me.
Thank You,

Frank is the husband of my uncles sister-in-law. By a chance, did you create the memorial because you are a family member or are you recording headstones. Because if family, I would kike to get more information. Thank you.

The photo you put on the memorials when you did them is lovely. Could I talk you into putting them on the other memorials. My chances of coming that way to take pictures are very slim. Ann

Earl and Betty Finch
I thank you for transferring the Earl and Betty Finch memorials that you had made to me. I will have to decide how to proceed as it is not considered in good taste to delete a transferred memorial. I assume by the transfer that you are not related. Thank you again. Ann

Earl and Betty Finch memorials
I wrote you at your private email and it is unresponsive. I am wondering of your relationship to my aunt and uncle. I had made their memorials nor realizing that you had made one previously. I was hoping that you would just give me yours so I could combine them and keep mine active. Unless you are related to them and me without my knowing. They are in Wayne Michigan. Ann
