Bio Photo Hi, My name is Vannetta McDowell, I have been searching for my ancestors for over 17 years which is a realatively short time as researching goes. My passion is to help others in their search while continuing the search for my own.

I am a member of the Captain Henry Vanderburgh chapter of the Daughters of the American Revolution(DAR)for 10 years. I am also a member of Tri State Genalogical Society. (15 years)

I started taking pictures of tombstones to add to my own family tree. When I found this find-a-grave site, I found my Revolutionary War soldiers tombstone picture. I was so greatful, it made me want to pay it forward.

What I like about adding information to this website is that it is a free site. I refuse to place my hard work on a website that gets paid for people to view what I have added for free. So as long as this site stays free I will contribute all I can.

Thanks to everyone who do this I think it is wonderful.
