Bio and Links
Bio Photo I've been working on family genealogy since 2000 and have added to that my passion to locate all deceased Vietnam veterans who served in my unit, A Co., 70th Combat Engineers between 1965 and 1969. We created a website on which we honor those men with their own "Memorial Room" page at Thankfully I am retired which allows me time to balance this passion, music and being primary care for our first grandchild, Lucas, born March 22, 2011. He is such a blessing from God.

Michael William Nicol, Vietnam
It is my honor to photograph Young Michael's grave marker. As an old WAC, and Vietnam ERA veteran myself, I feel it is almost my obligation. Picture taken & on Memorial.

Emma Stokes pic
I prob forgot to THANK YOU for clearer pic of above mentioned Stokes. She is in my ancestral tree of Teifers from Trenton, Mi-Bloomdale has many of them that I entered when there in '09. They are in back left section. They were part of pioneers in Trenton and were butchers by trade there on Main St (I believe thats the st.). Thanks again!
My husband said "thanks" for his mention of service too! lol

Honoring Their Lives
Hi John, I just wanted to say how very much the images for Cyrus, Marcus and Margaret Aldrich are appreciated! I do hope the weather was not too bad to be out in a cemetery for total strangers like myself. Helen

RE: Howard J. Frederick Headstone

Thank you so much for the photo of the Howard J. Frederick headstone which I received here this morning. Your random acts of genealogical kindness will surely be rewarded.

RE: Frederick Headstones

Thank you for your interest. I created a memorial at the Bloomdale Cemetery site for Howard J. Frederick as requested.

Your kindness in assisting me with this is deeply appreciated.
