Bio and Links
Bio Photo Growing up, my grandparents lived next to a cemetery and I took many walks and bike rides through that cemetery. I find the cemetery a peaceful place to gather my thoughts and to wonder about the lives of those I pass.

Over the past several years, I have been researching my family genealogy, and without the unlikely coincidences and kindness of strangers, I may not have been able to achieve what I have been able to. This is where F.A.G. comes in. I feel that I can possibly help others in their search, just as I have been so generously helped.

If you have any updates that you would like me to add to any of the memorials, just send me a suggestion via the edit tab and I would be happy to update it.

Will Transfer Outside Guidelines
If you want me to transfer a record, just let me know. I will be happy to transfer any record to you, with the exception of those that are in my family line.

If I have posted a memorial for one of your relatives, and you wish for me to take it down, please just let me know. I don't like taking memorials down because it may hinder the search of someone researching their family lines, but I certainly will respect your wishes.

I do transcribe cemetery directories, therefore, you will see many of my listings only have a date of death. This is all that is listed in the directory I am transcribing. If you have additional information for any entry, your help is always welcomed.

James Holmes, died 1893 Sioux City, IA
Hi Shannon,

James Holmes is my great great grandfather on my mom's side. Here is a link to his birth record:
It is record number 38: Jens Svendsen (that's his birth name, it got changed to James Holmes when he came to America).

Thank you,
:) Gia

RE: Memorial 113821085
Yes, please. I've just returned from a visit to family history sites in England and Scotland so I am better prepared now. Thank you.
