Bio and Links
Bio Photo Pre-script -- My account has more than 5000 memorials, about 500 or 600 of these are family members for my husband and myself. I would be more than happy to transfer outside the "guidelines". Just ask. Any relation or friend situation. I am not a selfish person. Some findagrave folks treat memorials like baseball cards and horde them. For what end?! I say --- Guidelines, Schmidelines..... There would be less problems and bad feelings all around if there were more generosity. But if there were no guidelines, some people would never even learn how to do a transfer...... I put information on this site in the hopes that someone someday asks for a transfer of a great grand aunt or uncle or cousin. This just means that people are looking....Happy to help!

My first stop in a cemetery is any photo requests, then it is the small white markers with the little lambs; the ones that are slowly giving in to the elements. Next, Veterans from any war, especially the Civil War, they seem to be forgotten about. This summer has been spent on many a gravel road with map in hand looking for the small out of the way cemeteries in this area. Sometimes hubby comes along.

More than happy to transfer any family, except of course, my relatives. Gladly will make any corrections, additions or relationship links. The great thing about findagrave is so many helpful, friendly people adding pieces to the genealogy puzzle.

RE: John Spengler
Oh, and I totally agree about some people being jerks about "their" memorials. Sometimes makes me want to quit Find A Grave. If you don't want me to add a photo to it, TAKE BETTER PICTURES! Seriously, some people take just horrible pictures; why do they do this? I never look at the memorials I have added, what are these people doing, or not doing, in their lives that causes them to be so preoccupied with "their" memorials?

RE: Lieut William Froehlingsdorf
I had searched before for him but the cemetery said he is not buried there. so finally I looked where his parents are buried and that is where his stone is. And according to the way I understand the info on his memorial it sounds like they never found his body. So that is why the cemetery has no record of him. Sorry that it took so long.

Thank you for trying to find the gravestones of my husband's family members - Nelson & Rhoda Bourdon. It sounds like you have spent a lot of time and effort looking for them.

Thank you for all the good work you do!
