Bio and Links
Bio Photo My interest in genealogical research developed when I moved to Ft Lauderdale in 2002 and started researching my family as well as the history of my grandmother Harriett Howell Tall's best friend, Lucile Quinn van Dresser, a colorful early settler here in Ft Lauderdale. With all the history I uncovered about Lucile, which was fascinating and led me to interesting places like Santa Fe NM and Solebury PA, I was sadly never able to locate her gravesite, supposedly at Lauderdale Memorial Park.
So I am more than happy to help with photo requests for this service, eager to help other families in their own search for their loved ones' gravestones. I know how much it means, and doing this service for others is personally rewarding.

Hi Valerie! Thank you so much for photographing my Great Aunt's headstone. My Mom wasn't able to visit her Aunt's gravesite so I'm sure she'll appreciate it as well. Thanks again! - Kris

re: Harley Newsham
Thank you for trying to find Harley's gravestone, I appriciate it.

I will make a note on the memorial about no stone... maybe someday a (close) family member will put one there.

Have a great day :)

Happy to help. Try adding the parent to the child, but not the other way around.
