|Bio and Links|
|Have loved doing genealogy since I was a young child maybe even as young as 8-9 years old helping my father out with his family history project I understand he started when he was 16 years old. I continue as an adult to research my own family tree as well as wanting to help others find their roots. I was born in the land of lincoln [Springfield, Illinois] where i love going through the cemeteries there particularly|
because of lots of family ancestry being buried there. Both my parents were born there. My two favorite cemeteries are Oak Hill and Oakridge [where Abe Lincoln is buried] in Sangamon County there. I'm sure some of my ancestry knew him personally. Since I've been replanted years ago
I live in Maricopa County, Phoenix, Arizona area now. So I've decided I might as well start entering gravesite info from where I live now.
There are plenty of cemeteries out in the southwest area. I am planning on hitting every cemetery I can find in my area the three cemeteries I am starting on in Maricopa County is
Resthaven Park Cemetery in Glendale, Holy Cross Cemetery in Avondale and Greenwood Memory Lawn Cemetery in Phoenix. All are in the Maricopa area.
I love genealogy as a hobby. I guess for me it's not really a hobby. It's my life's mission to help other people find their family members. And this website is such a great way to connect with others who are helped by contributing the gravesites info. What can I say? I must have eaten the apple off the family tree.
