|Bio and Links|
In April of 2010, I was made aware of Find A Grave in conjunction with the genealogical research I had recently started. I had found my great-great grandmother's grave marker posted on another site, but not her husband's. I contacted one of the site admins, who posted a request on Find A Grave and, voila!, a volunteer went out to the cemetery and took a picture! Following that, I decided to do the same for others, and I signed up to be a photo volunteer.|
Shortly thereafter, we visited that cemetery in Illinois where my great-great grandparents were buried. It's about four hours away, and made a fun day trip on Memorial Day! While in the area, we visited two other cemeteries where other relatives were buried.
Family names I am researching are: Manning, Gauger, Sensenich, Hedegger, and Jurk. Hedegger and Jurk are in Germany.
I enjoy fulfilling photo requests, and spend a lot of time trying to get good pictures. However, I don't fulfill photo requests that are put into the "Notes" section of someone else's memorial (that of a spouse, for example). My reason for this isn't because I want to "rack up numbers". It is because using that method to try to get photos not only circumvents Find-a-Grave rules, but makes more work for the photo volunteer, as well as increasing the chance your request will get missed. There needs to be a separate photo request submitted for each memorial for which you want a photo.

Al, would you mind transferring Thomas R. Morris to me? I can add his obituary and other info. I appreciate your work over the years. I am filling in the Morris family...my aunt Iola was Thomas's niece. Thank you for considering my request.

I am presently working on a project to locate the last resting place of many Civil War soldiers that had any ties to Vermont. George B. Tracy was one such soldier. He was born in Morristown,Vermont 6/04/1845. He was credited to his hometown for C.W. service, and served in the 1st Ill. Larty and 69th Ill. Inf. I am asking you if I may use the Find A Grave photo's you have contributed to his Find A Grave Memorial page to post on the Vermont Civil War site" ( www.vermontcivilwar.org) You would receive the vredit for this.
Thank you for your consideration
I think that's all. Hitesville is as complete as it can get. I'll just be doing family connections from now. Thank you so much for your many quality contributions!
