|Bio and Links|
I have been tracing my own family's genealogy for more than ten years, and only recently began to record their burial sites. When I discovered this website, it became a link to others doing the same. Through this site, I have met many generous people who understand the value of memorializing those who have gone before us. The places where our loved ones are buried are sacred ground and they deserve our respect. If I have created a memorial page of a family member, I will be happy to transfer it. Any photos that I have contributed may be used for any genuine genealogical purpose. I understand the purpose of this website to be a service, not a public arena of recognition or reward. Any photo requests that I fulfill will be taken with care and respect for the burial site. I will gladly clear any growth or debris (within reason) so that the photo is a fitting image to respect the person being remembered.|

My grandfather is a "neighbor" of theirs, as it happens, but I have no pre-interment connection. :->
I'm not about hunting numbers, I'm glad to have a memorial I shot photos of be managed by someone with a real connection to the people behind it. Best of luck, and happy graving.
|Sheila Stepko||RE: Bishop|
Thanks for the photos of Uncle David Bishop's stone. It would be wonderful if you could also photograph the stone for his wife, Mildred L. (Aunt Leone); memorial #106,752,469.
I appreciate all you've done.

|Dolores & Danny Bohn||RE: Wellnitz|
Thank you Tom for the great photos and solving
where Leo Joseph Wellnitz is buried. When I spoke to the Calvary Cemetery office recently, they did not have a record of his burial there, which is rather puzzling. Would you add a photo on his memorial also? The other 2 that you mentioned are Leo's brother & sister, which we created memorials for them.
I have tried to get obituaries for Leo & Frances by contacting the library in Racine, but sadly they charge a research fee of $40.00 +, which is unrealistic, because I just want their obituaries, which will give information, including survivors, & have their full death dates. Thank you for your kindness!! Sincerely, Dolores & Danny Bohn
Thank you for taking Wisconsin cemetery headstone photographs!

Find A Grave Memorial# 111898216 Marion's death certificate stated she was cremated so I created a cremated Find A Grave memorial.
I changed her cremation status to buried in the same cemetery as her husband on her Find A Grave memorial but stated she was cremated.
If you have a photo of her headstone, that would be great.

Tom, you're quite welcome!
"No headstone" take the most time searching. I could be in the wrong section or row or area or ..... so I end up doubling back & forth. Some of the older sections at Holy Cross (the largest in the San Francisco Bay Area) don't have their location inscribed on their marker/headstone so I end up roaming all over the place. But I rationalize that I'm getting my exercise in and, seriously, it's still good for my soul!!
