Bio and Links
Bio Photo I have been searching my family history for more than 10 years. What an amazing journey. There is nothing more rewarding than looking at the pieces and finally being able to fit them together. That's why I try to provide a plot photo in addition to the individual headstones. If you click on the plot photo, it enlarges and also provides a caption that describes who each stone belongs to.

On a more personal note, my husband likes to travel, so when he wants to convince me to go on a trip with him, his lead-in is usually, "I'll bet there's some cool cemeteries there." And, so far, there have been.

In July, we went to Chicago and found some more of my relatives. It was awesome!!! Not to mention HOT! Of course, when is it not hot in a Chicago cemetery in the middle of the summer?

On the same trip, we went to Indiana and Iowa. Love to our Muehlenbein family in Indian and Megan family in Iowa who took us to family gravesites to pay our respects.

I asked Find A Grave about adding the News Article of his death and this is there reply:

" "No". A bio should reflect on who the person was in life, and not centered on their demise. It's Find a Grave, not Find a Tragic Death."

Sorry, mayby something of a better nature of his life.

Transfer of Alto Sasnett
Thank you very much for fulfilling my transfer request on Find A Grave. I appreciate your efforts in establishing the memorial originally and also your generosity in sharing memorials you are not particularly interested in. It also inspires me to reciprocate in kind when similar requests are made of me. Thanks again, Joe Sasnett

Looks like it is okay with Find A Grave to post death certificates, this being over 50 yrs old. But, if for any reason you do not want it on your memorial, please let me know and I will be happy to delete.

Sending you an email with the death certificate attached. It does state body removal from south Florida to Pensacola for burial at St. Michael's Cemetery.

RE: Marques photos in St. Michael's

I just looked at the pics and I don't see any way of copying them.

You have added so many records to St. Michaels - its amazing the amount of work you have put into the cemetery!! Thank you for all the work you have done!!

RE: Marques photos in St. Michael's

Just now catching up on F.A.G. messages...

I have deleted the photos I had taken in St. Michael's - I didn't think I would need them anymore (wrong!)

So I don't have them to post. Is there anyway I can copy them on Find A Grave and then post them on the other memorials?

I'll try to see if copying them will work.

Thanks! Linda D.

RE: Philip Touart #109821497
Thanks for finding the discrepancy!

I deleted most of my Find-A-Grave photos (didn't think I would ever need them again!)
The photos of Philip Touart are deleted - so if you could please contact F.A.G. to merge the two memorials!

St. Michael's is something like 76% photographed - Wow!

I haven't been photographing in St. Michael's or St. John's for awhile - I was getting bit by red ants - maybe later in the winter I will try again!

Thanks, Linda D.

Not a problem, I deleted mine. This is not a contest :-)
