I've enjoyed working on my family tree and helping others with their research for many years. I am a member of several genealogy organizations and the Daughters of the American Revolution. It's important to preserve the family history provided to us by cemeteries. Besides searching for my own family names, I also like to record military graves and older headstones before they are damaged or no longer readable.
Please feel free to use my photos for your personal use.
