Bio and Links
Bio Photo I primarily focus my genealogy research on my daughter's ancestors and their descendants (Will and Newell families from Meigs County, OH starting from my father-in-law Lee Will, Braffitt and Mosher families from Middlesex County, MA starting from my father Jim Braffitt, Johnson and Hash families from Grayson County, VA starting from my mother-in-law Doris Johnson Will (parents William Hannibal Jesse Franklin Johnson and Pearl Jane Hash Johnson), and Cook and Blackwell families from DeKalb County, GA starting from my mother Dorothy Cook Braffitt). I also focus on the ancestors of my nieces, nephews, cousins, and various friends. I do obituary lookups for southwest Virginia, and I photograph and geotag gravesites near my home in Blacksburg, VA.

Many thanks for your headstone photography. I know what's involved in traveling to the cemetery, finding the plots, sometimes cleaning the headstones, taking the pictures, and uploading them; all for a perfect stranger. I really appreciate your efforts.
Thanks and best regards, Karl Hamlin

Thank you for the wonderful help with photos - living so far away, it's impossible for me to search myself. She was my aunt, one I never met, unfortunately. You are doing a very good deed for many of us....Nancy
