Bio and Links
Bio Photo Growing up on The Farm next to Norman Cemetery in Central Ohio gave me a natural curiosity at a very young age about the headstones and the people at rest in the cemetery. Helping my Grandfather care for the cemetery as a teenager increased my respect for the headstones, and I had a lot of time to study each one while carefully trimming the grass around them.

Relocating from Ohio to Arizona in the late '60's took me away from family and friends in my home state, but fond memories of days spent in the cemetery stayed with me. Eventually, my family history research began in earnest in 2009, in great part on Find A Grave, where I continue to be surprised to find ancestors who have passed on, and connect or reconnect with cousins near and far who are researching the same family members.

Find A Grave is my favorite forum and book of history, so if you found this profile, please join me in sharing the wealth here by creating a memorial for your beloved family members if you don't find them here already. Then visit a cemetery and add photos for all to enjoy. It's a fantastic way to make history!

Thanks Martha for the Ansted update. I've been doing genealogy for over 30 years and have tried to link all of our Ansted family. It's for sure an ongoing project and I appreciate any help you can give to me.
