Bio and Links
Bio Photo I got hooked on our family history the day I discovered my Great-Great Grandfather's 1925 autobiography and family history. He wrote about his Civil War days, and laid out our family history showing our family ties to both Daniel Boone and President Lincoln. Then, I discovered another Great Grandmother's girlhood diary about her family's trip in a covered wagon across the plains of South Dakota to a new home in Montana. One day recently I Googled one of these ancestors, and found her headstone on Find A Grave. Wow! What a surprise. I tried a few others, and soon realized how great seeing these memorials was, and, thus, how important the experience might be to others. So, I joined Find A Grave, determined to offer to others the photos I would want to see of my loved ones' grave sites.My best friend and I love to just go and do, and find it amazing what a cemetery says about an area's history and culture. So, we roam our nearby environs finding cemeteries, and hopefully fulfilling photo requests. And when we travel, we take a peek at what cemeteries may need attention along the way. What a great way to be in nature, spend time with a friend, and know someone might soon get an email about a photo they've been waiting for.Please feel free to do what you'd like with the photos I post
