Bio and Links
Bio Photo Miriam has been instructing and lecturing since 2005 to various groups in the Inland Northwest. She has been interested in her family history since she was a young girl, living in Southeast Alaska, far from her extended family in Western Michigan. In 1987, she began her genealogy research.

Ten years later, she was successful in reuniting her paternal grandmother--an adoptee--with her biological family. Miriam writes an award-winning genealogy blog, Online Historical Directories and Online Historical Newspapers websites. When not chasing dead people, she crochets, gardens, and bicycles.

If you would like Miriam to make a presentation to your group or would like to see her list of topics, please message her at this profile.

Jacob (E or L) Ebright 1836 - 1918
Good morning! I noticed you placed the info for Jacob Ebright. I was wondering if you by chance had a photo of his gravestone?

RE: Hannah (Fox) Fredenburg
Hi Miriam, I was happy to. I will be glad to transfer any other memorials you'd like as well, just let me know. It appears I have made a memorial for at least one other Fox family member in Hyslop cemetery, and several other Foxes across Sanilac County.

Checked her death certificate because of a conflict on the stone as to the birth date. It state she was born 9-6-1893? Another problem. and it lists her cause of death as Tuberculosis.

You're very welcome. I go to Forest Lawn every week sometimes several times a week on Monday or Tuesday I should have the photo for you!

RE: Samuel Scrace
Thank you, Miriam. I am researching people in the area and trying to add what I document to Find A Grave but am not a relative.

RE: Samuel Scrace
Thank you for your generosity, I am neither. I work with old records creating educational projects for our public library and sometimes find information I think will be helpful to family members. Find A Grave is a great way to pass that on!

Dr. Richard Whitney
Miriam, you might be interested in a CDV photo of Dr. Richard W. Barnum currently listed on ebay. The listing fits the Goodrich, Genesee County listing of your findagrave memorial.
I hope this is useful. Jim

Lydia Skidmore
Hello, I am a Scidmore descendant and found a death certificate for Freeman Sweers, leading me to Manley Sweers and Lydia you think that our two Lydia's could be the same? Do you have any record of her in a previous marriage. I see they have different birth dates, according to my family records, all her Scidmore siblings are correct and have attached historical documents. A mystery awaits! Please reply.
