Bio and Links
Bio Photo I find 'Find A Grave' a great research tool. I'm retired, living in Traverse City, Michigan and using genealogy as a way of keeping my mind active. I have been president of Grand Traverse Area Genealogical Society and am a member of Austin Family Association of America.

I do transfers, links, change information and anything else I can to make FAG a place that is user friendly. It is the members of Find A Grave who make it great place to spend your research time.

If you are related to any person on my memorial list, send me and e-mail or a public message about your family.

My family lines are Austin, Penix/Penick, Paradis, King, Bowman, Joseph, Taft, Seelye, Todd, Pinette, Nadeau, Rose, Reed, Barker, Lovejoy, and Foster.

RE: Thomas and Emma Williams
Hi Mary,

Yes, I would be happy to take over the management of the entries for Thomas and Emma Williams. Thomas is my first cousin twice removed. I have a photo of them together and of their tombstone and this will spur me on to getting them scanned and put on-line.

Many thanks for thinking about me!

RE: Ida Schuck
Thank you for understanding! Yes Jim is correct, after a little more research, her maiden name is actually "Trarop", not Hodges. Thank you!
