Bio and Links
I live in Whatcom Co, Washington, and have been actively doing genealogy since 1978. I became a FAG member shortly finding my 5th great-grandfather's gravestone photo and knew I had to create memorial pages and post the numerous photos and records that I had collected. My surnames of interest include Gilbert, Glover, Gowdy, Brown, Packard, Wakely and Jennings.

Additions and corrections to FAG Memorials: Please use the "edit" tab that can be accessed from each memorial page and choose the correct option.

Transfer requests: Please request the transfer of a Memorial according to the guidelines of FAG. I will not transfer Memorials for those that I am directly related to. Please, also, use the "edit" tab from each memorial that you wish to have transferred and include your contributor ID# in your request under "Suggest any other correction or addition."

Obituaries: I will add obituaries to memorials only if the death of the individual occurred over 20 years ago. I DO NOT POST newspaper obits without a proper citation which includes both the date and the name of the newspaper.

Photos: You have my permission to use any photo that I have taken and posted to a Memorial. Please remember to give my name and where you found the photo. Also note that I believe it is more important to capture the data on the headstone and provide the best possible photo. Please contact me should you desire a scenic photo of the area where the headstone is located.

You are quite welcome :) It is always good to help. I love to solve a family mystery. She is buried beside her daughter and her parents. If you would like any other photos, just let me know. I'd be more than happy to taken them.

My tired brain forgot to update part of your edit request the other day, but it's okay now. What is the best way to work those edits when one part is declined and the other part approved? I haven't had this issue before. Any advice you have is welcome.

Hope you're having a good weekend!

Thank you Merrily. Having moved recently ourselves we understand your situation with unpacked boxes!

If you ever come across any of the items related to the Johnson family, please let me know. We would be happy to cover any costs for your troubles. The picture alone would be treasured by my wife and her mother.

Thank you again for responding so quickly. Have a great day.

Johnson Family Photo
Thank you for the addition of the Johnson sisters photo added to the memorial of Ingebjjorge Johnson Whitworth.

Young "Emma" in the front row is my wife's great grandmother and we and her family were excited to find such a great picture!

It makes a great addition to the family tree and it was especially nice to be made aware of "Elin"... an older sister I had not yet added to the tree.

We would be grateful if you had any additional pictures or information on the Johnson family that you wished to share.

Thank you again,
