Bio and Links
Bio Photo My interest in genealogy began when I was 17 years old, and hasn't let up a bit after 40+ years.

I am always honored to transfer a memorial to a family member, to give that loved one a lasting memorial which they deserve. If you find a family member among my memorials, please request a transfer FROM THE MEMORIAL PAGE. That makes it so much easier! Be SURE and include your contributor number.

Family is precious... past, present and future. Don't take them for granted!

"A genealogist's work is never done...thank goodness that this work is fun..."

God bless you :)

Sonja, Thank you so very much. You take beautiful photos and having them in my tree means so much to me.

Dear Sonja, You have made many photos of my family's headstones (my mother was a Threet) who were from Florence, Alabama. First, let me thank you for your hard work in documenting so much of my family's history. I truly appreciate this, since I am unable to take my own photographs.

May I copy the photos you have taken of the headstones of my relatives for use in my family tree? Many of my relatives are buried in the cemeteries of Florence (including my mother's parents, sister and many, many cousins). My mother is buried in Chattanooga. Her memorial is #160807229.

Thank you,
Carol Barber Hudson

Recently I sent you a correction for his birth. His grave marker contains the wrong info. See the 1880 census where he was 12 years old or his death certificate where the info was provided by his sister Myrtle. October 1862 is the correct birth. I am using only the month because death certificate states 15 Oct but if you figure it backward from death date it comes out 11 Oct.

Could you transfer Edwin Barlow's memorial to me? I can add information and connect him to his family faster than leaving messages.

I'd appreciate it.

Thank you.
