Bio and Links
Bio Photo I am a genealogist, rockhound, Civil War buff and student of history and human behavior.

When I have the honor of managing a memorial, I work to build a bio so that when someone reads it, s/he comes away with an idea of what that person's life was like. Each of us is so much more than birth and death dates. I'm grateful for the the photographers who do the hard work, getting out into the cemeteries, recording the names & dates & snapping gravestone photos of people they don't even know, and who may otherwise remain unrecorded, and forgotten. That's not right, even if you ARE dead.

Thanx to those of you who leave flowers for my Mom, Marilyn Wright Mader, Dad, LTC. Gene W. Mader, my wacky baby sister, Lisa Ann Mader Putnam, Ronald Richard Kropczynski, and Woman's Best Friend, Miss Sheba.

It has become very important to me to build memorials for our Veterans~~the women and men who have fought and sacrificed for this great Republic. I encourage contributors to add the person's military service whenever possible! The courageous dead deserve to be honored and remembered.

***In most cases I am willing to transfer memorials of people who are not family to me. Please tell me how you are related to that person and make your request through the edit tab on the memorial. Thank you.***
Mitch Mader

Edit Button
Do you know about the new edit button at the top of your page? I did not and found a bunch of edits to do, that has been there a long time. I was just wondering since I sent you some changes that have not yet been done. These changes sometime won't come through your emails, so you need to check it often. Just wondering, Richard

RE: Charles X 3!

I totally understand! I had three Clarissa's that just about made me crazy! They were three different women, and it was not easy for me to sort them out!

Sorry for the note on the dup. I didn't realize they were different people.

Thanks for responding!
