Bio and Links
I became interested in geneology about five years ago after the death of my father. Although, I haven't discovered much about his side, my mother's side of the family has been here for generations and I'm always making new discoveries. I have wandered many country cemeteries in Indiana looking for ancestors. I'll never forget the feeling when I discovered my great great grandparents graves in a tiny cemetery in a cornfield on the other side of the state. The inscriptions on the old stones can give you such insight to who these people were.
I felt some how connected to people I never knew. I've been addicted ever since.
I live in Northwest Indiana and I'm close to many small country cemeteries and decided to combine my interests in geneology and photography and help others find long lost relatives and memorialize them. I'm just getting started as a volunteer photographer and hope I can be of help.

Thanks so much for trying to take a photo. I was at the cemetery a few years back but it was before I knew Emily, (my gg grandmother), was buried there. The cemetery is so vandalised. It's such a shame what's happened there. So many of my ancestors are buried there but I could only find one half of a stone. :-( I really appreciate the time you took to try to take a photo.
