Bio and Links
Bio Photo I am retired in Boise, Idaho. I have loved spending time in cemeteries since I was a little girl. Helping people by exploring cemeteries and photographing grave markers for them is a dream retirement activity for me.

I walk the rows taking random photos when I am in a cemetery, and add the photos or the entire memorial to Findagrave if they are not in. I particularly concentrate on veterans (and their spouses), infants and children. I feel the veterans have earned the right to go to the front of the line. And I feel that since the babies and the children got so little on earth, at least I can give them some electronic "life".

I am always happy to add any information to a memorial I manage. Just send it. I am also delighted to add obituaries; just make sure that I have the correct attribution to add so the paper's copyright is respected.

If you find any errors of fact, date, relationship, or spelling on any of my memorials, please let me know. As a former professional proofreader, I KNOW that no one is perfect all the time, including me. I will fix it.

I will transfer management of memorials in line with the Findagrave guidelines, which specify relatives in a direct line. Specifically, they say: "Transfer requests should be for direct relatives within four generations. This would be your siblings, parents, grandparents, great-grandparents, children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren. Any non-direct relatives (aunts, uncles, cousins, etc) are not required to be transferred." Please do not ask.

Thank you for posting the photo of the grave marker and linking him to his mother. I'll soon post some photos of Robert and his family.

Mary A Winchell Van Slyke
I have marked the grave of "Polly" Van Slyke. She is my GrGrGr Grandmother and I did not want her grave to go unmarked. I have added the photos of the new marker. It is very simple. You can adjust any other photos or biographical data. Is she an ancestor of yours? J Haight

I thought you'd like to know, I heard from Susie's granddaughter that they were able to have her ashes interred this past week, and a marker will be placed later on. They were also able to have her daughter, Nancy's ashes placed in her husband's grave, and she will also have a marker. I've never forgotten the work you did on the photos I requested and that you went the extra mile to uncover information for me! Your dedication to this site is really appreciated! Thank you!

Thank you!
Sue Ann,
Thanks so much for taking the photo of Dorothy Albertson's final resting place for me. She was a wonderful great-aunt! Are you also related? Would be fun to connect!

Betty wardle
Betty wardle is linked to the wrong parents.

Her parents, from her death certificate, are joseph alma wardle and violet mann.

She is linked to joseph wardle and violet boulden. These are my husbands aunt and uncle. They had no child named betty.

Please unlink this person from these pArents. It is so easy to make errors and spread disinformation. Please correct this so that other people are not confused.
