Bio and Links
Bio Photo Inspired by the work done by her great grandfather, Silas Wm. Blizzard (fag #40386458), while writing a history of his family, my mother, Eleanor Clara Blizzard Black (fag#36676318) began her own research. She continued until the early 1980's when arthritis and osteoporosis made the work too difficult for her. I had always found the subject interesting but did nothing with it until after inheriting mother's numerous notes. I began my own search to learn more about my ancestors and those of my wife about ten years ago but did so on a limited basis until more recently. Find A Grave has proved to be a wonderful tool! I've "met" so many people here who have been so helpful to me. As I've visited cemeteries and researched names, I've found many of our relatives. I've also created memorials for many other people I've found along the way in the hope that what I've done may be helpful to others who are searching for their ancestors. If I've entered information incorrectly, I apologize; please let me know and I'll make corrections. If you find ancestors of yours among the memorials I've created and would like for me to transfer them to you, let me know. If neither my wife nor I is related, I'll be happy to make the transfer.

Good morning Tom, I was wondering if you would be willing to email a copy of the photograph of tall black monument (photo courtesy of G.Stoecklein) you posted on Anna's memorial? or ask the photographer to send me an image to read. I can not read the ext on the stone in the image posted. sincerely, Zoe.

Tom, I'm glad my information helped you with your tree. I've found Find A Grave, in general, to be a huge asset in my own tree-building. Kathy
