Bio and Links
Family is my passion. I am a professional genealogist, but I also do volunteer work like contributing to FindAGrave and other genealogy-related causes.

Whether you just need an image I can take locally (free through FindAGrave requests), want help organizing or designing your own research, need help putting your research into a beautiful book for your family to cherish and enjoy, or want someone to do it all for you, I'm your gal!

I've been a professional researcher and analyst since 1999 and have several university degrees, including a BA in Anthropology, MS, and M.Litt. from the University of St Andrews in Scotland, a Red Brick (aka Ivy League) school. I pride myself in superb research, writing and presentation of the most precious thing we all have - family.

I look forward to helping you on your family discovery journey!

RE: Bourchier documentation?
I have not done original documents research on the Bourchier family, no. I go to books and scholars who have. Burkes Peerage has a staff much more able than I am at that kind of research. I relish using the Magna Carta Ancestry and Plantagenet Ancestry books when I run into a royal or titled person and don't feel I must research each step in the line again myself. The original document research I do is not even real original documents. My latest free ebook download is A Transcript of the First Volume, 1538-1636, of the Parish Register of Chesham by J W Garrett-Pegg published in 1904. It has given me an interesting view of what was going in the district in that 100 year period as far as the Chase and related families.

People make fun of wikipedia but probable errors don't go unremarked on for long and there is an incredible amount that is useful to genealogists on wikipedia. The problem with getting information from private trees is there is almost always a reach for a desired outcome somewhere along the line. A Classic example is the Emily Warren Roebling book “The Journal of the Reverend Silas Constant”.

I hope I have answered your questions. And are you clear that I do not "calculate relationships"? it is a phrase that findagrave uses for "second hand" relationships.

RE: Bourchier documentation?
"A calculated relationship" is indicated by a star on findagrave when it is computer generated. If a marriage is made by a contributor from a woman to her husband the relationship shows with a star when looking at the husbands memorial. Siblings are calculated relationships because they are computer generated when one or more contributors add parent information for more than one child. Is this what you mean by calculated relationships?

RE: Bourchier documentation?
Yes it can be as simple as googling and ebooks. I do not use personal trees such as ancestry or uncredited internet information but I find useful sometimes for original documents. If you want more detail and associated resources on the Bourchiers try,_2nd_Earl_of_Bath.

George Ludloff
Thanks for attempting to locate and document the grave of George Ludloff. He was a victim of the St. Francis dam disaster of 1928. His City of Los Angeles claim file indicates he is buried in Bakersfield, at Union Cemetery. Thanks for confirming that is not the case. I'll try calling around to the other cemeteries in the area to see if he ended up buried somewhere else. Thanks and take care, Ann

My nitch is mostly Union Cemetery burials at this time...obituary and bio hunter to match up with the Bakersfield pioneers. Again, welcome and thanks.

I do a lot of work at Union setting up memorials for those buried there. I started there by accepting photo request just as you are doing right now. Then I branched out and work sections, taking pictures and adding them to Find A Grave (Find A Grave). I have probably added about 16,000 burials to Find A Grave. There is another lady and her husband who do the same thing I do. Together we are probably responsible for 28,000-30,000 of the 34,000+ interments which are listed on the cemetery page. We have fun doing what we do. It is interesting work and at times very rewarding too. Good luck with your membership and hope it is fun and interesting to you also. Another suggestion, do your ancestors also. If you need help, send me an email through Find A Grave. Dean

Minnie Ahmann
You claimed a photo request for Minnie. I have just finished a memorial for her and have added the picture. I am not the person who requested the photo just the one who set up the memorial. You don't have to do this one.
