Bio Photo
My interest in findagrave started when I worked on a family tree for my husband. We found some of his relatives and where they are buried through this site. It was comforting to look at their headstones and imagine what life was like for them more than 200 years ago.
I would like to thank all the volunteers for their time and effort in photographing and documenting the grave sites. I was so impressed with their work that now I am a volunteer and I enjoy spending my free time at the cemeteries documenting headstones of which some, unfortunetly, will be totaly unreadable in a few years.
In photographing cemeteries I noticed some of the older, hard to read headstones have been scratched to try and make out a name or date. I DO NOT alter the headstones in any way, instead, I take several photos from different angels to try to read them.
If you find any mistakes, please contact me. I am not perfect and do make mistakes and when they are pointed out to me I gladly make the correction.

Any photo from a cemetery that I've posted at Find-A-Grave may be used for family trees, personal use, etc.

Zobler Connection
I am a Zobler! and wonder if I might be related to your family. Anton Zobler sounds familiar but I am not sure how we might be connected. I have traced my ancestry back to the early 1800's in Galicia (currently Poland) to Yoel/Josel Zobler.
Would be interested to see if there is a relationship.

I am sorry for the confusion, but I had indicated to edit@findagrave that the ones the sister had added were the duplicates. Find A Grave should have deleted the other ones and/or merged with yours.

Thank-you for adding more bio info and accepting my edit and connection requests for the Elmer W. Simpson & Elpha Cheese family. I don't know how you are able to handle all the memorials you maintain, and still can respond to our edit requests so quickly. I thank you for the time and care...
