Bio and Links
Bio Photo As my Findagrave Profile name suggests, I am one of the many people to be diagnosed with Autism (Aspergers, to be specific). As one diagnosed with this syndrome, one of my characteristics is that I focus my attention around specific subjects. Most people with Autism or Aspergers may focus thier attention on dogs or subway routes. During my early high school years, I was fixated with graves after I stumbled across Findagrave. I would usually travel to cemeteries within my neck of the woods (Pennsylvania's Main Line), or whenever I was on vacation. Eventually, I felt that my fixation with cemeteries became morbid, so I slowly shifted my attention onto another subject: the US Presidents. To this day, I can still recite (1) the names of the Presidents of the United States in chronological order from George Washington to Barrack Obama, (2) the years they served in office, and (3) thier Vice Presidents. I also have an odd interest in visting State Capitol Buildings. Every once in a while, however, I would enjoy roaming around a cemetery (mainly if a President was buried in the cemetery). In October 2008, I decided to create my own Findagrave account, so here I am =)

DISCLAIMER: As of January 1, 2013, I'm taking a year off (& possibly a little longer) to spend some time away from FAG so I can focus more on my own personal life. I'll be back sometime in (or after) 2014, but right now I just need to focus on my own personal life -- meaning, until then, I do not wish to get any personal e-mails asking to fulfill FAG requests.

Hello, A.W.,
Thanks so much for taking the time to go out and photograph the Wells's final resting place. I very much appreciate it.
Due to the nature of the stone, their memorial is very hard to read. This is a lot to ask, I know, but if you'll be heading back out to that same cemetery, would it be possible for you to transcribe the information on the stone? I would be very grateful.
Thanks for all you do for Find A Grave.

Thank you for taking this for me. Tony was my husband's friend from high school and in our wedding party. We lost touch. So sad to see that he lost his life at such a young age.

Thank You!!
I cannot thank you enough for your kindness in researching Radnor United Methodist Cemetery to find and photograph the headstone of John A. Kavanagh for me. He is my great grandfather whom I've been researching for some time with very little success. Not only did you make my day with a photo of his headstone but now I also know the name of my great grandmother. What a wonderful gift you have given me.

This is why I love genealogy research--I have met so many wonderful giving people who are willing to share and help whenever they can as payback for all those who have given to them. I hope one day to be able to make the trip to Pennsylvania but until then I now have tangible evidence of my mother's father's resting place.
