Bio and Links
Bio Photo I am a full time librarian and a when-I-have-the-time hobbyist graver.

My father was an avid fan of Find a Grave and he introduced me to this site before he passed away in 2008. Memorial # 46644773

You can feel free to use creative commons with the photos I take if you'd like to use them in your genealogy or family history projects. (But please do not add my photos to other websites without giving proper credit).


I LOVE to find relatives and homes for the memorials I manage, so IF you see a memorial you'd like TRANSFERRED, I'm more than happy to do so, just put in the request via the "EDIT" option. (Will transfer ANY except those in my Family Virtual Cemetery). ***Also, to expedite edits please use the EDIT tab that Find a Grave provides in the upper right hand corner of all memorials. "Suggested corrections" should be used for transfer requests or other edits that are not options under the EDIT tab.***

Please do not send me requests to change the entry of MAIDEN name for Males whose name origin indicates that they are LATINO. This name is often their mother's maiden name and used for lineage purposes. Maybe a suggestion would be for Find A Grave to add an entry space for this.

My family lines are Schmidt/Wassem and Johnsen/Hale. My husband's family lines are Alves/Carvalho and Bacellar/Huet.

Hi Carolyn, Is Guy Lee and Hattie Marie Trapa Lee your relatives? If not would you transfer them over to me. Guy was an uncle to me from Indiana.
His sister was Grace Bassett whom was my grandmother. Thanks! Kathy Bassett Davis

Memorial # 85904467 W. LaPolt
Left some notes in the "Leave a Flower & Note" section. Not sure if he was a family member or yours or not. Also linked him to his parents and grand parents. If it doesn't show check back in a few days. I just submitted it so may take a few days for the volunteer to incorporate.

RE: Bio for Ben Andrews Memorial #85844160
Since there is no specific edit entry for Bio, I submitted the information to you on the correction/addition edit entry. I had gone through those edit offerings before I messaged you, thinking there would be a Bio edit offered. Bios don't seem to fit under corrections, but do, however, under additions, well, sort of, anyway. Thanks for adding it.

RE: duplicate Elsie Bonsack
Dear Carolyn,

Hello, how are you?
I did submit the duplicate notice through the edit feature on her memorial page on June 13. I still have my copy in my emails. On August 10 I then sent you another notice via your public messages this time and waited a couple days to see if you would respond. When no action was taken I went ahead and sent the two memorials you have for Elsie Bonsack to Administration to merge. Their oldest pending edit email is July 23 and I sent it in Aug 12 so they probably won't get to it for a week or two.
You were the original creator and then the duplicate was transferred to you and the end result was two memorials for Elsie when there is to be only one memorial per person.

Bio for Ben Andrews Memorial #85844160
I fulfilled a photo request from Find A Grave member DaWaRa who then asked if I'd add a brief bio since Ben Andrews apparently, was a TV actor. The following is what I wrote and certainly, change or edit it as you wish and add it to his memorial. I think you have to add it since you maintain his memorial.

Ben Andrews, film and TV actor, is best known for his work on the daytime soap operas "General Hospital" (1963), "Days of Our Lives" (1965), "Return to Peyton Place" (1972). Additionally, he appeared as a guest star in several television series, namely, "Planet of the Apes" (1974), "The Streets of San Francisco" (1974), "Mannix" (1974), and "The Six Million Dollar Man" (1975), "The Rockford Files" (1979), "The Waltons" (1981).
