Bio and Links
Bio Photo Aloha! I live in Hawai'i, but my family and ancestors of one line are from Massachusetts, Connecticut, New Jersey, Central New York State & a bit into Ohio (Howland, Lo-Lathrop, Rawdon, Annable, Myers, Dunton, Rose, Dabinett), my fathers line is from Sweden (Hammarstrom). Husband's family from Sweden, Germany, Netherlands, to the midwest... Chicago, Nebraska, Indiana (Hylander, Ekstrand, Nelson, Hametman, Sandifort). Any and all help is greatly appreciated! Most of the pages that I have posted or manage are relatives of my husband or I, and I do this in memory of them. I'm grateful to the members who have transferred pages to me. I will be happy to add or correct information if it is necessary and if I have posted one of your family members I will be happy to transfer, whatever the relationship... they are your family, not mine! I have already found some family on this site and am very grateful for the time and efforts of other find a grave members.... with that in mind I will do what I can to 'pay it forward' and try to fulfill some requests here on O'ahu. As an Army wife it is especially important to me to be able to honor and photograph military graves. If I am able to fulfill your photo requests, please feel free to use them on your family trees... just please credit me as the photographer. I always give credit to the people who share photos and information with me... and I am very grateful to them all. One more thing... and I donʻt mean to sound like a scold... but a simple thank you when a member fulfills your photo request goes a long way...most do, but if you donʻt, or havenʻt... think about it... Mahalo...

RE: Edits
Hi Lynda,

Glad to do it! The good news is - if what I have read is correct - after 30 days of being ignored, all edits via the automated system are accepted. Maybew you can check one or two of yours to see if that's true.

Warmer in the Bay Area today than Honolulu and no ttrade winds, so you enjoy another day in Paradise!

All my best,

Best regards, Sue

RE: Abigail Hatch Chamberlain
Hi Linda,
Yes of course you may use the picture. The more people that have it the better chances of it surviving long term. She was my 5th great-grandma. I have a tree at that has lots of other info for her, if you're on there.
Best regards,

Miss Gambuti
Hi Lynda

I graduated from WRHS in 1977. I never had the pleasure of having Miss Gambuti but it was impossible to not feel her love, passion and devotion to her students and her profession.

I am hoping to go take photos of my ancestors at Cesdar Lawn sometime this spring . I will do my best to find her resting place.

Sorry but I have had recent right shoulder surgery and typing in a sling is very slow. I have transferred all memorials to you.
