Bio and Links
Bio Photo I have been researching my genealogy for 40+ years & never tire of it! I enjoy photography, reading (actual books, not electronic!), & local history as well as U.S. history. My favorite "job" was working for Stephen Ambrose in Helena MT. I loved the research and transcribing oral histories of WWII Veterans. It definitely didn't seem like work to me. Looking forward to retirement, if I am fortunate enough to afford it, or don't die first!

I am a photo volunteer. I do my best to take several photos &, if there are others nearby with the same surname, I will photograph those also.

I'm not a stickler for the guidelines (except for copyright issues, see below!). I believe the memorials should belong to family, no matter the distance, and friends. If you request a transfer, please include your relationship.

Remember folks, from the Find A Grave guidelines: *** Photos posted to memorials on Find A Grave are copyrighted by the member who submitted the photos. Lifting the photo to use elsewhere would be a violation of copyright. You must obtain written permission from the member to use any photo for your own use. In general if you did not take the photo yourself, you do not hold the copyright to the photo. ***

You may use my photos for PRIVATE USE. Please do NOT copy & save them to put them on the Internet. If you want to share it on the Internet, just copy & paste the link to the photo that will direct folks to the photo on FindAGrave. Please respect that. If you want to post it on a tree on, you can directly link the photo through their website.

Thanks & happy hunting!

I don't know how interested you are in this family. I've linked her to her father. I had to add the father's obit to HER entry, because the owner of her father's refuses to put obits on their entries regardless of the format.

If you want to ask them for a transfer, they you can add it. The hoops we have to jump through for findagrave control freaks.

RE: The Wollertons of Chester County, PA
You're quick! Thanks for getting back with me. I did find the documents that you spoke of but thanks for looking them up! I am not of Wollerton heritage--so far--but I am working on building the tree for a family.
I read your feelings about using your photos of the headstones. I've put quite a few up myself. In trying to fill in this tree, I often ask for permission to use the photos from Find A Grave rather than just using a link. I am a contractor for My Family Online which is a free-access site that provides a way for people to get all the information in one spot. Since this family is no where near Pennsylvania, the photos that you share are the only access, so THANK YOU! If you would like to take a look at what we do, check this link:
If you decide you wouldn't mind me using your actual photos for our site, it would be great! We do list the to Find A Grave and your name would be listed as the donor if you would like. Let me know what you think, okay.

I see that you have taken the majority of the photos that are linked to the Wollerton family in the Penningtonville Cemetery, Atglen, PA. Are you related to this family? If so, do you know who the parents of Ziba might be? I have been doing research on this family and I have an idea of who it is but I can't find any definite connections. I'd appreciate your input.

I have the obit for Junior:

It seems a waste, but the owner of that entry carol & pete won't post obits, transcribed of photos. So, if you're interested in this family, I'll email it to you (I need your email) I could search my email, but save me the time.

I'll save the obit for a day or so. If you get ownership of that entry, I can just add it.

Pic of Mock Memorial at Upper Octorara
Just wanted to let you know, that I need to remove the one pic you had placed of my grandparents' William and Jennie and daughter Dorothy's headstone in May 2015: it is a duplicate of the one I had placed in June of 2013. Dan-Oh has an obituary for Dorothy that I want to place in the profile. Thanks.
