Bio and Links
Bio Photo I have educational training in Cultural Anthropology, with a focus on Historical Archaeology. The primary focus of my work has been concentrated on African American and Asian American historical experiences in the US. I have been researching professionally since 1997 and have been conducting family research, non-professionally, since 2001.

This site is intended to be an aid, an informal research tool, and I believe that everyone utilizing it has an obligation to verify any data posted by someone else before re-using it and incorporating the same into their own research. In this Technological Age the access to, and preservation of, historical information has become much easier to accomplish. It has, however, also become that much easier to misinterpret the data or haphazardly record the same incorrectly.

With that being said, I am not a “numbers” type of person and I have no desire to be that “one person” with the most memorials added or managed. My sole intention for joining this site was so that I might utilize it as an aid in locating my own relatives who lived outside of my geographical region of frequent travel. I also hoped that I would be able to help others in their search for the same.

If you are more closely related than I am, or my husband is, to any of the individuals whose memorials I manage, I am more than happy to transfer them to you. I do not manage many so I don’t really foresee this as an issue. I know some individuals on this site are “possessive” of their numbers and don’t want to part with any memorials they’ve created – I feel this type of behavior is insensitive and inappropriate when a direct relative is requesting to host a memorial for a deceased loved one.

Hi. Please contact Dr. DiBlasi at the phone number or email address on the Eastern Cemetery page to get a location for this grave. Without that location, it is impossible to find any graves there.

Hey Heather,

You will find that I am an "obit pimp." I find all my obits online for the most part. I can go back to the 1800s. :)

RE: Who are you?
I'm sorry but what memorial do you speak of that I've listed atrocities of the past. I'm more than happy to remove anything negative. Chances are it was a suggest a correction. I have many Clevengers in my collateral trees and have helped several other Clevengers research their tree so offense was meant.

RE: Church Hill
Heather, I apologize. I have submitted over a thousand "corrections" to Findagrave over the last month. I get a "no reply" message for each of the accepting or declining the request. I usually delete the reply after I open it. I receive 15-30 replys a day. Also, I just got back from a vacation and had over 75 messages for Findagrave in my inbox.
As a result, I may have accidentally deleted some of your transfer requests. Please check them and RESEND any transfer requests that I have not transferred to you.
As of Thursday Morning, I have transferred 5 memorials to you.

RE: Church Hill
I will be glad to transfer any or all of the graves in Church Hill to you. I photographed the cemeteries several months ago and just recently put them on the website. If you have better quality photos, please let me know and I will delete my photos. I do ask that if you have found in your research any Military Veterans among them that do not have a Military Marker, I would appreciate that information for my research. Not just Church Hill, but any cemetery in Christian County. Let me know your wishes for the transfer. Joe Craver

RE: 130445884 & 130445953
I'm sorry, I thought I had gotten back with you. I've been really busy.

According to the Cemeteries of Trigg County, Kentucky book published in 2007, they are listed in this cemetery. Up until April 30, 2007, this cemetery hadn't been recorded in the previous cemetery book. Charles Morris and Sonny Greenwade recorded this cemetery.

There are no stones in this cemetery. And as I indicated in the description, I am not really sure of the exact location. You can contact Kim Fortner at the library there in Cadiz and she can probably get you in contact with Sonny Greenwade. She was one of the co-writers of the book and very helpful.

If I can be of any other assistance, please let me know.

Enjoy your trip to Trigg County! I sure am fond of this county!! I've tried my best to make sure that the cemetery integrities are accurate. There was a contributor that had messed up so much that I took on fixing all her mistakes. In the process, I just decided to make sure all of Trigg Co. (not BTR) is as accurate as I can determine!

Have a wonderful Monday!

The memorials that I have added in Trigg County have come from the 2007 Trigg County Cemetery book. When I get home, I can look and tell you who researched this particular cemetery...I will be able to give you more info then.

Sorry it took so long for this to be done! I hope it meets your expectations. They are under a really beautiful tree near the front.

You did not say in your message but is Tsutomu Kakesako and Kay Kisayo Kakesako Famiy?
Why I ask is the the stone is faded and I touched it up the best I can by darkening it, and contrast.
