I became interested in genealogy in elementary school, and I started actively researching my family in middle school. I've enjoyed every adventure since then.
I came across FindAGrave.com when I was trying to do some family research for my husband's family. After finding one of his family members, I decided to search for my own family. I was surprised to find that a number of my Dad's family in Missouri was already posted online with memorials. I was so grateful that someone had gone out of their way to input my family online. After all, they didn't have to. They weren't related to them, didn't know them. After that I decided to become a member in hopes of keeping alive the memory of my relatives as well as others even if I didn't have the privilege of knowing them, for I want to return the favor that was shown to me.
My husband, Mark, enjoys coming along and visiting cemeteries with me. He claims half the pictures we've posted he took, but I'm not so sure. :-)
Please leave me a message if I have made any errors in my listings, or if you have additional information.
