Bio and Links
Just a guy that enjoys history and thinks that history and geneology are an important part of our lives. I was born and raised in Western Pennsylvania, and now I live outside of Houston, Texas. At home, I am trying to get as many local cemeteries listed as possible. I am currently focusing on "forgotten" and out of the way cemeteries in East Texas. I also travel quite a bit with my job, so in the evenings on the road, I visit local cemeteries and try to fulfill photo requests. I also travel back to Western PA frequently and try to get cemeteries there.

I try my best to try and find out as much as possible about each person using public records, obituaries, etc. However, I know that I will make mistakes. PLEASE let me know if there are any errors so that I can correct them.

Transfers: Please follow the FAG guidelines for transfers. If the person memorialized is not a direct relative - as defined by FAG - please do not ask for transfers.

The greatest thing about love is that no matter how many people you give it to or how much you give, you never have less than you started with.

Hi Rick,

Thank you for all the work you have done in this cemetery and others! I have deep roots in this area of GA and your work has greatly helped add to my family tree.

I wanted to let you know that I've completed a bio for William C Sanders, at least for now, and thought you might want to take a look. Some of the pallbearers & escorts mentioned in the obit have been linked back to your memorials. William's memorial # is 54912768. His wife, Rebecca Hulsey, is my cousin.

Best regards,
Debbie Hulsey Zouras

RE: Pictures
Just let me know I will gladly add them. You can just sent me the memorial number. That will save you from downloading. Also In some cases when one spouse is still alive they birth dates maybe on the stone, I covered them up when I placed it on the deceased spouse. Just trying to protect ID issues.

Thanks for fixing that connection.

Hi Rick I try to add memorials when there is a double stone but sometimes one or the other has not died yet. Yes you can add the photos to the second memorial but if it is one that does not have a date of death let me know which cemetery if it is one of the ones that is close to me I can go take a new photo.

I just added a tombstone picture for Arthur James Stivenson and noticed that in your bio for Arthur that you have his wife listed as Lisa and it is Eliza Barbara. This is my grandfather and grandmother - is there any way that I can control what is added to their site? Thanks.
