Bio and Links
Bio Photo My grandmother got me started in genealogy before I was 10 showing me photos of all sorts of ancestors and telling me stories about them. I have worked seriously on genealogy for about 30 years, even going back to college and earning a bachelor degree in history. I have much knowledge about the South, Alabama in particular. I don't live in the South but would be happy to help where I can.

When you find a photograph on a memorial, look to see who submitted it and give them credit for the photo if you download it. ALL photos have the name of the submitter associated with the photos. Look below the photo for "Added By:" Some require you to get permission first. Check the submitter's home page for instruction by clicking on the name of the person who added the photo.

You may use my photos as long as you give me credit and you are in no way profiting from them.

Levi James Alfieri
Find A Grave Memorial# 42177552, You posted or uploaded the exact same photo as someone else. Is there a way you can remove your photo of Levi.

I don't mean to be picky, but it just looks tacky.

Thank you,

RE: 61413656 Mary Roark Mason
I have a small New Testament book that was apparently presented to Mary Roark when she was 13 years old. On the inside of it is written "Mary Roarks Book Presented by the Antioch Sabbath School Dec 1877."

Would you be interested in this book? I am not related to this family. I found the book at an antique mall this afternoon.

Glad you found the Foster connection. Thank you for the additional information. I've added it to her memorial.

RE: Eliza Wyatt Foster Wilkerson
Thank you for the information you provided. In order to determine from where the Foster connection came, I will review some of the notes I had about that cemetery and also will browse through the edits I've been sent. If I cannot find the source of that link, then I'll be happy to edit the memorial accordingly so there will not be misinformation. Give me a few days to find time to do this research, then I will send you a follow up message to let you know what I discovered...or did not discover, as the case may be. Just wanted to give you a prompt response today to let you know I'll be looking for the Foster connection.
