Bio and Links
My mother began working on her family's genealogy when she retired. She's a great lady, but not the most computer savvy, so I started helping her with her research. Well, you can probably guess what happened next - it rubbed off and now I'M researching both sides of my family!

Thanks to the wonderful folks at F-A-G, I lucked into several breakthroughs on a few stubborn ancestors whose memorials had been posted; so I decided to become a contributor myself. I do the occasional photo request for local cemeteries as time permits (I live in the Western Philadelphia suburbs), and will generally photograph not just the requested stone but any others I find with the same last name nearby. I'm happy to make changes, updates, links, etc.; as in many cases I am no relation to the person whose memorial I've posted and have no info beyond what's found on the marker.

I am researching the following surnames; nearly all in Bedford, Somerset, Dauphin, and Lancaster Counties, PA:
Reasy, Long, Elicker, Berkheimer, Rice, Gebhard (or Gephard, Gephart, Gebhart, etc.), Copenhaver (or Coppenhaver, Coppenhafer, Koppenhafer, etc.), Flowers, Laemmel, Hoffman.
If that overlaps with anyone you're seeking, feel free to contact me to compare notes. My family tree can also be found on Some day I hope to identify the ancestor who contributed my 30% British Isles DNA - in a lineage of otherwise Swiss and German relatives!

Happy researching!

Good morning, Liz,

I just found your photo of Annaʻs headstone... she was the wife of a distant cousin... may I use the photo on my private family tree? I always give credit to the members who share their photos with me... thanks so much...

Thank you for posting the picture of the tombstone for Capt. William Wayne, buried in the Old Saint David Church Cemetery.
I have been searching for veterans of the 97th Regiment and thanks to volunteers such as yourself the photographs help identify them and also make the memorials a little more complete. Thank you again for being a findagrave volunteer!
