Bio and Links
Bio Photo I have been a genealogist since 1994, and part-time professional since 2009. I have always used cemeteries for my own research, which is why they are so important to me. I use my proximity to many cemeteries in Monroe, Livingston, and Genesee counties in New York to assist other researchers. I try to be aware of issues such as plot arrangement and grave proximity; when possible I will try to do general area surveys, not just get the photos requested and leave. I have helped find "lost" graves and relatives for others and hope to continue to help in this fashion.

I am happy to transfer management of memorials for people I am not related to myself. This includes nearly all memorials under my care in the New York counties of Genesee, Livingston, Orleans, and Monroe. I do general photographic surveys in area cemeteries and create memorials based on the photographs I take, although I often do additional research to find maiden names when possible. I am related to very, very few people in these counties, so chances are I will be willing to transfer.

If the transfer request is one of my relatives, I will consider a transfer only if it should meet Find a Grave generation guidelines. Requests for transfers without indication of relationship or without links to all graves requesting transfer will not be granted.

I also follow Find a Grave's guidelines about not posting obituaries dated after 1922, for copyright reasons.

Also, please feel free to use my grave photos for personal projects. If you are planning to include them in something for publication, contact me for permission and arrangements first for proper credit.

RE: Pimm's in Churchville
Hello Barbera,

Yes give me all the Pimm's if you do not mind. I know they are relatives. Also, if you have any Adams' in Churchville they are relatives on my Dad's side also.

Pimm's in Churchville
Well hello again Barbara. I see you have found my Fathers side of the family. LOL. I will send you a list of the Pimm's in Churchville or Riga that you have placed into Find a Grave and take them over from you if you do not mind.

Leon Partyka

My name is Allan Dombroski and I am interested in taking over management of your Leon Partyka memorial. I have recently started our family tree and Leon Partyka was my mother's (Stella Partyka Dombroski) 1st cousin. So I think that would make him my 1st cousin 1 time removed. I have never transferred management so I am not clear on what I have to do but, if you are willing, let me know what I need to do. Thank you.
