Bio and Links
Bio Photo If one of the memorials I have added is a relative of yours and you would like to manage it yourself, just ask.

People think I am crazy because I hang out in cemeteries. I may be crazy but it has nothing to do with hanging out in cemeteries. I have been served by many volunteers over the years, without whom I would be surrounded by brick walls (I have been tracing my family history for over 40 years). Professionally and academically I am a scientist and my passion is to prove my facts; my sore spot is posted "facts" with no citations for the proof.

I am a Vietnam veteran and I travel a LOT in my business. I frequently visit cemeteries in the towns and cities I visit and almost always have my camera with me (although the battery is often dead).

I am addicted to genealogy (and if I'm going to be addicted, this is my drug of choice) and take the opportunity to add a little to the on-line community when I can. Besides, I find the exercise of walking cemeteries around this great country to be pleasant as well as productive. You meet the nicest folks in cemeteries!

I discovered that next to Lottie Estep's stone is a large stone with Estep & Brown on it, and next to that is a stone for Charles A. Brown. I added photos to his memorial too.

Thank You!
Thanks so much for photographing my grandparents gravesite. My mother died in 1973 when she was only 40 and it's been very difficult to keep track of her family. Because I have lost touch with them, I never get to Maryland. I really appreciate your help.
