Bio and Links
Bio Photo I'd like to say thank you to the wonderful people on this site that grace me with patience. I attempt to do all corrections and transfers within 30 days.

I am a mom of a three-year-old, A proud full-time student at Indiana University- Kokomo, and bring home a little bacon, too! Patience is appreciated! Requests are best made here or via the "Suggest a Correction" button within the "edit" tab on each memorial. Many contributors follow the family guidelines regarding transfers. That should be respected, since this is not a primarily genealogy based site. I, on the other hand, have no use for these memorials.... Want it? Just ask. Please don't delete it. The photographs are my passion. With that in mind talk to me before reposting them :)

Current projects:
***Heusing Cemetery - Kankakee County, Illinois
- Have all pictures just deciphering and will add
***Barnett Cemetery - Howard County, Indiana
- Have cemetery 80% photographed and will add
***Saint Paul's Lutheran Church - Beecher, Will county, Illinois
- Recently uploaded a transcription from 1980. I do not have photos yet. And these stones are highly illegible. If you want or have been planning to photograph this cemetery please contact me, I will be happy to share this transcription which was done grave by grave.

Happy graving!

Momence cemeteries
Hi, I appreciate all the work you have put into creating memorials and taking photos of tombstones in Momence. We are working on a big genealogy project in Momence, trying to gather obituaries for every burial, collecting photos of people buried in Momence cemeteries and making sure everything is documented correctly in FindAGrave. If you want to assign memorials over to us, we'd greatly appreciate it so we can make the updates quicker. We are working Momence cemetery, St. Patrick's cemetery, Mt. Airy, Shrontz, Union Corners, Nichol's cemetery, Sherburnville and St. George. If you don't want to give up management of the memorials you created, that is fine too. We are Momence Genealogy Corner #48071071. Thank you.

William H. Dohrman has WRONG tombstone attached to it.
The tombstone shown is for his Uncle William or Wilhelm Dohrmann (younger generations dropped the final"n" on family name.
William H. Dohrman is a son of
Father: Heinrich Dohrmann #58082378
Mother: Marie Ohlenkamp Dohrmann Bingham #58082392
These two Williams are easily mixed up
- You will see that I just sent WRONG CORRECTIONS ON #58082406 William H. Dohrman informat. The correct information is
BORN December 03, 1874 in Beecher, Washington Twp, Will County, Illinois, and
DIED May 07, 1934 in Blue Island, Worth Twp, Cook County, Illinois.
William H Dohrman was marred to Alice or Elles Pabst but I have not found where she is buried - YET. So sorry for the problem.

Hi there - For some reason, I am not able to get past the captcha step to send an edit tab so I'm leaving the message here. On the subject memorial, I believe the parental links are incorrect. We just had a Harold Hagenow, originally from Rock Falls pass away and his parents are the John and Minnie linked on this memorial. You can check Harold's obituary memorial #173285357. Can you check and let me know what you think.

RE: Thanks for the transfer.
Hey lady ... I completely misread your message ... yes, I did request the transfer not too long ago - but I can't help you with your memory of doing the transfer LOL. Didn't anyone tell you that once you have kids you lose your mind??? LOL ... just kidding ...

RE: Thanks for the transfer.
Oh my goodness ... it's been so long I can't remember if I originally requested it or not LOL. Either way ... thanks so very much!!!
