Bio and Links
Bio Photo Welcome 2016!!

As you can see I am still in Colorado (currently snowing and in the teens) and still dreaming of Oregon and its waterways, bridges, moss covered trees, and yes the rain.. I am looking forward to a possible trip back to Oregon later this year for at least a week.

I have worked with and enjoyed communicating with a number of great volunteers in both Colorado and Oregon and consider them my friends and FAG family. With that in mind this year has also brought me a few nasty volunteers that I have had to have FAG block from emailing me. Please if you are one of these move on no communication is required and leaves more time for me to help the ones that need and appreciate my help. Also, I don't believe I need help on how to load memorials – after over 50,000 memorials managed I think I have it down.

I enjoy helping people with finding and linking their families – investigating is in my blood. I also enjoy filling photo requests as you can tell by my over 2,500 currently taken. So if you need my help please let me know but please be considerate on the number asked at a time so I can help others who need my help. Also, if I tell you the grave is unmarked or the loved one was never buried at the cemetery, this was only brought to your attention after asking at least two people in the office and checking out the site myself to insure the information is accurate. I find I have a great working relationship with all the cemeteries I currently work with.

Transfers! If the name is Bolejack, Bolerjack, Pomeroy, Campbell, Deboard, Dickey, Hodges, Weddle, Francis, Barrett, Bennett, Boyde, Doyle, Braning, or Robinson – don’t bother asking. Or if I put a flower “ Family” – please don’t ask it just takes time away from what I am currently doing. With that said – I don’t believe in hording other volunteers family members. Sometimes it might take me a few days to answer but I do try and answer as quickly as possible. I also will not transfer when you have a proven history of poor updating and editing memorials skills. I believe that the loved one and their family members deserve someone that is prepared to take care of them.

Outside of FAG I am the proud grandmother of twin granddaughters and three grandsons. And if they don’t keep me busy enough I have two twin nephews and their brother that stop by to spread joy and the occasional cold.

Mary Caroline BURCHAM Francis burial place
Mary Caroline BURCHAM Francis (Memorial #105793391) is buried in the Cupco Cemetery in Yanush, Latimer Co., OK rather than the Damon Cemetery, although her husband, Joseph Henry Francis is buried there. Please update her memorial. She is my g-g grandmother. Thanks so much for maintaining her memorial site!!

Best Regards,
Tracy L. Allen

Pearl L Arthur
Not writing you to complain, but to thank you for your obtaining information about Pearl Louis Moore-Arthur. "Pearl was cremated and ashes
were sent to Rhode Island- and never buried at Fairmount" I appreciate it very much.
Would you have any thoughts about how one would find out to whom the ashes of Pearl was sent.
I will start by seeing if I can find any of her or her husbands family might have lived in Rhode Island.

Thank you so much, I really appreciate your assistance. I lived in Denver for ten years and lived in Colorado Springs for ten years... Was in the Air Force stationed at Ent AFB and also worked at Lowery AFB... Both which are now gone.
Thank you. Lois Ann

Re: Maria Charlotte Haller Bullitschek 62595957
Charlotte is an executor of her husband's will which was signed on 1 Oct 1799, and proven in June Term 1801, in Forsyth County, NC. So she did live past 1792.
