Bio and Links
Bio Photo I am retired in Boise, Idaho. I have loved spending time in cemeteries since I was a little girl. Helping people by exploring cemeteries and photographing grave markers for them is a dream retirement activity for me.

I walk the rows taking random photos when I am in a cemetery, and add the photos or the entire memorial to Findagrave if they are not in. I particularly concentrate on veterans (and their spouses), infants and children. I feel the veterans have earned the right to go to the front of the line. And I feel that since the babies and the children got so little on earth, at least I can give them some electronic "life".

I am always happy to add any information to a memorial I manage. Just send it. I am also delighted to add obituaries; just make sure that I have the correct attribution to add so the paper's copyright is respected.

If you find any errors of fact, date, relationship, or spelling on any of my memorials, please let me know. As a former professional proofreader, I KNOW that no one is perfect all the time, including me. I will fix it.

I will transfer management of memorials in line with the Findagrave guidelines, which specify relatives in a direct line. Specifically, they say: "Transfer requests should be for direct relatives within four generations. This would be your siblings, parents, grandparents, great-grandparents, children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren. Any non-direct relatives (aunts, uncles, cousins, etc) are not required to be transferred." Please do not ask.

Ida Ray Critchell
I apologize for the second message. Ida Ray is actually the mother of Charles Ray Critchell 1883-1955 per the 1900 Census.

I believe that Lillian Dorothy Critchell and Mary Lorraine Critchelll are not half sisters but full sister. Mary Lorraines mother is alive in 1920 and 1930 census. I believe Ida Ray should not be linked, she is 25 years older then Charles Ray making her 60 when she had Lilian Dorothy

RE: Minnie and Scott Wiley at Canyon Hill
Dear Sue Ann:

I am very sorry for the mistakes I made!!

I am brand new to this and am finding out there is a bit of a learning curve to it.

I realized that I had made the mistakes you told me about but I also made duplicate records. I deleted those.

I have gone back and fixed the pictures. I was so excited to honor your request and I took extra pictures for you. At first I didn't know how to add them but now I know.

There are 3 pictures for Minnie......1 regular, 1 close up and 1 from a distance so you can see the surrounding area.

There are 4 pictures for Scott......1 regular, 1 close up, 1 that shows his military service and one from a distance.

Please let me know if these are ok. If not I will go there again.

Thank you for being patient with me!!!

Your note made me smile -- yes, I think that definitely needs changing. Thanks for letting me know of my error, Sue Ann. Much appreciated.

N.P. Andersen & Flora Andersen
Hi! I updated the marriage relationship links for N.P. and Flora Andersen with other info about them last night. However, I inadvertently linked the marriages on BOTH of their memorials, so their marriages show-up twice. Oops! (I didn't know Find A Grave would let that happen.) Anyway, I am deleting one of the marriage links now. So, don't panic (ha!). By approving the removal of the duplicate marriage link I just put through in error, you will straighten things out. I just wanted you to know what was going on! Best regards, E.F. Charvet
