Bio and Links
Bio Photo I research the Meyers/Weaver/Houck families from Cherrytown, Huntingdon County, Pennsylvania as well as the Kleinschmidt clan from St. Louis, Missouri and the Sargents from Thayer, Missouri.

I am married to a Tuscan, and make occasional trips to Italy. I have quite a bit of information on the Alibani family from Avenza, Italy due to the diligent work of Barbara Calani, who devoted years to her research and died far too young. Also of interest is my husband's family, the Nicolais from Castelpoggio, Italy.

Because I travel domestically for my work, I may visit cemeteries anywhere in the sunbelt.

A special interest is the Kleinschmidt/Schmelen/Bam families of South Africa and Namibia. I recently attended a reunion of these families in Komaggas, Northern Cape, South Africa.

Another ongoing project is the publishing of the many hundreds of letters that my grandparents and parents wrote during their missionary days in Congo. You can check out the progress on Congo Letters.

Happy to transfer memorials - just ask.

You may use any of the photos I post on Find-A-Grave, as long as you attribute them to me.

Token you left for Traci Fields
thank you very much for the token you left for my angel daughter Traci. She was a wonderful gift from GOD, and she's in my heart and mind every single day. Her passing has left major holes in the hearts of her family and friends.

I appreciate you helping to reach my goal of 5,000 tokens by her birthday, November 20th. Actually, thanks to you and other findagravers, so far today Traci has received 6,026 flowers/tokens. That makes my family and I extremely happy. Thank you, thank you, thank you.

I'm thankful and blessed for your kindness. GOD bless you for your heavenly heart.

I am so overwhelmed with all the findagrave friends requesting flowers/tokens for my Traci. Thank you ever so much!

This is something I wrote for Traci:

It was a cold, quiet night at the cemetery. The snow was falling gently to the ground. The only sound that could be heard was the whistling of the wind. Off in the distance I suddenly heard the tiny sound of jingling bells. I looked around and wondered where the life was in the stillness of this cemetery.

As I gazed around, I saw a ray of moonbeam shining down on a small Christmas tree.

I thought to myself, "This is where the life is in the cemetery!"

Ring the bells this holiday season in memory of those you love.
