Bio and Links
Bio Photo I'm in the process of researching my memorials. I try to get documentation for all the information I place on each one.
Disclaimer: I am not responsible for misinformation placed on the memorials I manage via "edits".

Do not use my pictures without my permission. I will not give permission for them to be used on Ancestry dot com. Why would I post them here "free to view" only to have another site "charge" to see them?

Many thanks to all who have helped me with my memorials. A very big thank you to Find A Grave for this outstanding web site.

If you have additions or corrections for a memorial, please use the suggest a correction "edit tab', upper right on each memorial. I will not make additions I can not verify. Please do not leave "edits" below. Thank you.

If you donít want to read my RANT.....
stop here.
Whatís up with these people who MUST have their relative transferred to them. Then when I look at the memorial, a year or two later, not a blessed thing is added. Not even a flower.

Also, how hard is it to proof your memorial bio AND correct typos?
OK, Iím done.

Note to self...historyseeker 47049540 wants NO documents posted on their memorials.

Thank you for updates photos--Wyler
I am sorry to see the change in Mr. W's marker since I took the photo in 2011. There are a lot of markers at Maple Hill that need help!

Hello SMG, and thank you for your thoughtful editing of my great grandmother's photograph. I was so pleasantly surprised to receive your edit. Such a random act of kindness!

Thank you and I appreciate any documents/help you can offer.

RE: 157296787
Oh, your note made me laugh. Yes, I spend at least that amount of time per day on Find A Grave, like you, researching the profiles I create. I call it Raising the Dead. It's an intellect's version of a crack habit. Unfortunately there is no 12 step program.

Thanks for making the correction. All the information you added gave me information I was missing for her siblings. Thanks again.

No need to. I have yet to get into Mom's books to see what info she has collected, and it might be a while yet. Thanks for taking care of this.

Thank You
Greetings SMG,

Thank you so much for the pictures of cemetery and marriage records of my dear Cousin Mary (Spanbauer) Ford and her husband, Ralph E. Ford (1916-1993). I am an avid genealogist in my Spanbauer family tree and its associated family trees.

With your permission, I would like to keep the pictures of St. Patricks church, gravestone, and marriage to be archived in my personal genealogical account maintain for free for all LDS church members and non members genealogists.

Wishing you the best in your great endeavors of making records for many genealogists, especially when tangible records were not available or lost for good, except it was found to be on stone!

Thank you for adding the marriage license and obits for Mildred Nadine (Davidson) Burtner. The copy of the marriage license answered a mystery of why I had another marriage date --- it says that she was married Orville's brother! Aha! Love adding obituaries to our family records. Where do you find them? Is there a database? Thanks for all you do!
