|Bio and Links|
|I've enjoyed genealogy since the early 70s when I would send out letters typed on a manual typewriter left over from college and enclosed a SASE (self addressed stamped envelope).|
I've lived in Alaska since 1968. On trips "outside" I'd visit cemeteries where my ancestors were buried. I like to stand at the gravesite and look around at the surroundings knowing this is what my people saw when they said goodby to a loved one.
I've been fortunate to inherit family photographs and have uploaded those to Find-a-Grave.
In the summer of 2013 I helped update the records of the Spruce Grove Cemetery in Kasilof, Kenai Peninsula Borough, Alaska. In October of 2013, I photographed markers in the Anchor Point, Kenai Peninsula Borough, Alaska cemetery and added burials which were missing to Find a Grave. In June 2015 I added Tyonek burials listed in the 2004 book Cemetery Inscriptions and Area Memorials in Alaska's Kenai Peninsula Borough. I am willing to transfer any Spruce Grove, Anchor Point and Tyonek burials.
Spent the holidays 2013-14 in Boulder, Boulder County, Colorado and took photographs of some of the markers in the Mountain View Cemetery. I work on photographing the markers in that cemetery every time I visit. As I travel, I take photographs of markers and if they aren't listed I add the people to Find a Grave ... most recently Kodiak City Cemetery in August 2015. I am very willing to transfer any of these entries.
Thank you for having such a site.

|Jeff Hall||Thank you|
Hello Kari, many thanks for the excellent headstone photo added for PFC Victor T Renlund. Nice work!
|R & J Black||Mabel Green|
Thank you so much for the photos of Mabel and Harry's markers and all your work on this site.
It looks like these two could be the same person-the next time I'm up in Boulder I do some checking. Thanks!
|Jerry Gowins Jr.||RE: Esther Haney # 15900067|
Thanks for the photo updates. I really see no reason to delete either yours or mine. I appreciate the updated photos, however I took the one listed while visiting the cemetery with my Father, who has sense passed. It was the only time I've ever been to that cemetery as I live in Ohio and it holds very special memories for me and my son.
Please leave yours there too, they are very nice.

His name was not Terrence, it was Terry. I am in communication with her grand daughter on ancestry. She has no idea where "Terrence" came from, his name on both of his children's birth cert is Terry Charleston Smith.

Hi Kari - I think between the two of us, we are steadily making progress getting MVMP photographed. (-: I deleted the shadowed photos you pointed out. It's not my preference to end up with shadows, but I figure if the names and dates are legible, a photo *with* shadows is better than no photo at all. Sometimes I'll make a note and reshoot them, but not always. Take care, Amy

Thanks for taking the updated photo. I didn't take the pictures so I can't delete them. You might contact amys #47855684. Because they are her photos, she is the one who can delete them. Thanks again.

Hello. I have printed your kind report of the sorry condition of Jacob's headstone to file with his family info.
Since the row and lot are known, can't someone take a photo of the unreadable headstone and post it to Find A Grave?
Bless you for all you do. You make me happy.
