Bio and Links
I live in central Florida in Brandon (just east of Tampa). I started doing genealogy just out of curiosity about 15 years ago. My mother gave me a genealogy project that my great aunts had started years earlier (before computers) and my hobby began. I am married and have 3 grown children and 4 grandchildren. Genealogy is my passion and I wish I had more time to spend doing it. I also enjoy helping others, hence my submissions to "find a grave". I like to walk cemeteries and photograph the stones. I have even drafted my husband into helping me, but I love the "alone" time. I know that when I run across something new that has been beyond my reach I am so excited. I hope by submitting headstones that I am able to help someone else find that little something they haven't been able to achieve. You may email me privately at if you prefer. Any photos I take are open for public use. You do not need to ask my permission. Happy hunting.

Ray G. Lee grave photo

Thank you for volunteering to take grave photos in your area. I clicked on the link to obtain Ray's photo but there was only the front cemetery entrance photo.

There is no mention of a problem with this request. Probably just an oops!

I so appreciate your taking the time to take a photo of Effie's memorial site. It clears up my question as to whether she was buried with her husband Joseph or not. Thanks again!
