Bio and Links
Bio Photo My Profile image is a "Making A Difference" award presented by NBC 15 News in Madison, Wisconsin for all of the volunteer efforts that go into making "Findagrave" a valuable resource. The piece may be viewed at the following website: you to all of the volunteers that make Findagrave possible. In my youth, I often looked through the box of old family images and negatives that was stored far away in the closet. Who are these people and what do they mean to me? While at college, my Architectural studies allowed me the opportunity to work in the Photo Lab. This experience enabled me to take those negatives and make them real, and as such was my first opportunity to create a family album and to understand our family's history. The start of a life long effort! The advent of the computer and the internet just made it all that much easier. Over the years I have enjoyed making connections with family in the name of family research. There is a lot of information available from various sources and it takes one family member to organize it and make it available to all!As past president of Clan MacCallum/Malcolm Society of North America Inc and now their "Family History Coordinator" I truly value our rich heritage and I endeavor to assist others in their ancestry quest.

RE: Robert Richards
Are you related to Robert Richards?

I found his birth date in his attestation papers was not the same as on the stone, so don't know which would be correct. So you might want to check it out if possible. S.

Dear Neil,
Thank you for the very readable shot of her stone. The research goes a lot further when one is able to see the stones.
I see you're a Scot--we are Brownlees/McDonalds, and Rice (Royce), and Yale (of Wales)(direct from sister of Elihu Yale, the giver of the books and other assets that started Yale U. Supposedly the Royce/Rice line goes back to Charlemagne, Alfred the Great, &cetera, but, of course, there is some dispute.
I've been watching 'Outlander', and it makes me want to go over to Scotland (and Ireland and Wales) more than ever.
Thanks again, and all the best,

You have posted a photo of the stone for the Swenson family and Magnus Swenson (FAB 86593173). I am a distant cousin of Magnus Swenson's wife. Is is okay if I use the photos you posted on my Ancestry pages?

Cyril E. Marks grave photo
Nell thanks for the photo of my grand father's grave stone. It shocked me to see it's condition so I went to the cemetery and cleaned it with "Wet and Forget" and took new photos of his stone and his third wife's stone wife I am attaching to the sight. Please remove the old photo. Let me know how to take over his sight if possible. - thanks again- Randy Marks

Need help in reading the inscription on Emma Dunkel's gravestone
It is not clear enough for me to read. Could you help me out with what the inscription on this gravestone says. Maybe a family member could confirm or collaborate on this.

As I have not found the grave of Wilson Dunkel's wife ... this may be it. I know it says Emma, wife of ??? Dunkel.

This may be Emma Schuler Dunkel (wife of Wilson Dunkel and mother of Arthur Albert, Chauncey, and Louis Edward Dunkel) who was born in Pennsylvania according to unsubstantiated census info [or Engen, Konstanz, Baden Germany if an unprocessed birth/baptismal record from Germany is a match for her showing both taking place 1 May 1859].

Thanks for your help AND greater volunteer efforts for all our universal "family" looking for loved ones' final resting place.
