Bio and Links
Bio Photo I started working with genealogy about four years ago, tracing a family genetic heart condition. In the process I discovered Find A Grave, it has been very helpful in finding information on ancestors. I live in Northeast Iowa and I am happy to help other people with their searches.
Please let me know if you are a relative or family friend and would like me to transfer ownership of a memorial. I will gladly do so, unless I too am a relative to the individual. I would rather the memorial be in the hands of someone that can truely represent who they were.

"Preserve carefully the seed that has been entrusted to thee, that it may grow and thrive. Guard it well. Through thee, my child, shall the obliterated inscription on the old, weather-beaten grave-stone go forth to future generations in clear, golden characters.

George Harold Jamison
Dear Chris,

Many thanks for locating the gravemarker for George Harold Jamison. Much appreciated! Would you happen to know if there was a gravemarker for either Mildred Jamison (George's wife) or Richard Jamison (George's son) at the same cemetery?

Any help you could provide would be great.

Many thanks,

RE: Thomas Boots Photo
The 1895 and 1915 Iowa Census Records say he served in Illinois in the Navy. Navy Records are not very easy to find. I did find this on Fold 3 but there was no info other than his name with an alias Thomas Booth:

Navy Survivors' Certificates
B Bo Boots, Thomas (#34127)

Publication Title: Civil War and Later Navy Veterans (Navy Survivors' Certificates), 1861-1910
National Archives Catalog Title: Civil War and Later Navy Veterans, compiled ca. 1861 - 1910
Short Description: and place of birth of Navy veterans submitted between 1861 and 1910.
Veteran Surname: Boots
Veteran Given Name: Thomas

Thanks for your help in recognizing this Civil War Veteran. My husband is the State Graves Registration Officer for the Sons of Union Veterans and his goal is to identify burial places of all Civil War veterans buried in Iowa. We live in far western Iowa, so we depend on photo volunteers like you to verify burial places.

RE: Photo Request for Harry Frederick Anstey
I didn't create that memorial. I have gotten them in the past by calling the information number for the cemetery.
