Bio and Links
Bio Photo I love genealogical discoveries--whether they're mine or yours. If I can help you make a discovery, please don't hesitate to ask. Many others have helped me through the years, and I will be happy to help you.

I love taking pictures and am a volunteer here, so please don't hesitate to ask me to take photos in my area.


OK, I have no rules. I'm not like some here who have rules about the pictures I take. Whatever I post or give to you are my gift and you can re-post them wildly without any permissions. If I don't want something shared or re-posted, I simply don't include it on the internet.

I feel that genealogy is about sharing and providing so that people can document their families. It's not about getting "credit" for things. I think those kind of people should be ashamed. In the genealogy world, what's mine is yours. I honestly do not understand the fuss over getting credit for a tombstone photo. These photos are NOT works of art. Every photo of the tombstone is going to look like the next person's photo.

I normally save my pictures in a large, better defined format. If you would like a copy, please let me know. I will be happy to send it to you.

If you are related to someone that I have the memorial for, I will be happy to transfer it to you. I am just keeping the memorials until I can find a proper home for them.

McManis, John R and Rachel A
Hello, Curtis,

Thank you for taking these photos of my Great Great Grandfather's siblings. I would never have been able to get to LA to take these, and I am very appreciative.

Rachel Ann McManis and John Redman McManis were not husband and wife; they were sister and brother. Understandable error, as I have made similar assumptions when taking gravestone pictures myself. Also, you have picked up Rachel's birthdate (8-20) for John's death date.

Thanks again,

Lorrie Burhans, Cornell, MI

Walters family cemetery
Thank you for posting these pictures-I had not seen the photo of my great grandfather Thomas J. Walters. My family (in Illinois} visited the family plot in 1960 to place stone for T.R. Lee Walters-it was overgrown even then. My father was John Thomas Walters, son of Lee Walters and Elizabeth Fern Livengood. He is buried in Illinois.
Thanks again, Charlene Walters Kenney
