Bio and Links
Bio Photo Editor and author.

Please Note: While I write biographies for famous listings, I do not hold editing privileges and can make no changes; famous listings are entirely within the pervue of administration. To request any additions to famous memorials, you must email to submit updates. Be sure to include a link to the memorial record or the memorial ID #.

This is about them.

*To the one member who leaves notes full of whining hypocrisy; it is not attractive or helpful in members, so please do not leave your self-involved sophomoric rants here if it is all you have to offer; to quote: "The administrators make the decision on which bio fits their standards." Move along, there is no room for your ego here.

Dear Iola, For many years now, you have written so many excellent bios for Find-A-Grave, among them on some of the memorials about Scandinavian monarchs. I am currently requesting to add some links and minor adjustments to a few of those, and I sincerely hope you'll be pleased, as you deserve to be. Yours truly, Jacob Truedson Demitz

Thank you so much for your work. It was so thrilling to find this information on my 6th great grandfather. Words can not express the joy I feel that you are sharing their lives with their descendants! Bless you.

Thank you Iola, for your biography of Chief Luther Standing Bear. He is my relative, and it was nice to find this information.

Elias Boudinot
Thank you so much for an accurate & sensitive portrayal. If I read one more time about how the Ridge's and Boudinot "caused" the Trail of Tears I was going to beat my head against the wall! (My daughter is a direct descentant of Andrew Ross , who probably was in on the Echota Treaty signing for what he could get? How can you ever really know?) People who haven't studied the history of the nation and then open books in the middle think they understand and assume blame and so much bias! Was Chief Ross really that perfect as a Chief? Tired of those three signer's being so reviled!
