Bio

<i>The virtual cemeteries on my list that start with an asterick are one memorial in each of the international cemeteries I have worked on. I use this to easily find each cemetery.</i>

<b>Interesting projects I have been working on.</b> (Newest work at top of list):

<a href="http://www.findagrave.com/cgi-bin/fg.cgi?page=gr&GRid=171980552">The Yangtze Incident</a>
On April 19, 1949, British ships were caught in the Chinese Civil War between the Kuomintang (KMT) government of the Republic of China and the Communist Party of China (CPC).

<a href="http://www.findagrave.com/cgi-bin/fg.cgi?page=gr&GRid=159952205">The Sinking of the <i>USS Conestoga</i></a> A US Naval tugboat that disappeared from outside the San Francisco Bay in 1921, and was never heard from again. It was believed that the ship sank 2,000 miles away from where it was discovered in the Greater Farallones Islands in Oct. 2015.

<a href="http://www.findagrave.com/cgi-bin/fg.cgi?page=gr&GRid=151043116">Murulla Railway Disaster</a> A midnight train collision in the Upper Hunter Valley on Sept. 13, 1926 near Murrurundi, New South Wales. The different cemeteries are interlinked.

<a href="http://www.findagrave.com/cgi-bin/fg.cgi?page=gr&GRid=150188450">Victims of the Sunshine Station Railway Disaster</a> Forty-four people died when one train ran into another in a crowded train station in suburban Melbourne in 1908. Newspaper articles and photos of those killed. Hyperlinks at the bottom of each page will carry you to the different cemeteries involved.

<a href="http://www.findagrave.com/cgi-bin/fg.cgi?page=cr&GRid=140218545&CRid=2570625&&">Coranderrk Aboriginal Cemetery</a>, Healesville, Victoria, Australia. Amazing 150 year old photos of the residents of this Aboriginal Station, who believed that Queen Victoria had given the reserve to them in perpetuity.

<a href="http://www.findagrave.com/cgi-bin/fg.cgi?page=cr&GRid=140218545&CRid=2437327&&">Dom St. Petri</a>, Bremen, Germany with photos from Sept. 2014.

<a href="http://www.findagrave.com/cgi-bin/fg.cgi?page=cr&CRid=2562847&">Goodwood Motor Circuit Cemetery</a>, Chichester, England with photos.

<a href="http://www.findagrave.com/cgi-bin/fg.cgi?page=cr&GRid=139979121&CRid=1982778&">Chichester Cathedral</a>, West Sussex, England with photos.

<a href="http://www.findagrave.com/cgi-bin/fg.cgi?page=cr&GRid=139917212&CRid=2142891&">National Cathedral of Denmark</a>, Copenhagen. With translations.

<a href="http://www.findagrave.com/cgi-bin/fg.cgi?page=cr&CRid=2550962">Sankt Petri Kirke</a>, Copenhagen.

<a href="http://www.findagrave.com/cgi-bin/fg.cgi?page=cr&CRid=639876">Oude Kerk</a>, Amsterdam is a 14th century church that became an indoor cemetery. Each stone in the floor covers between 2 and 7 graves. I have found a lot of genealogical information and I have photographed both the stone and the area of the church the stone is in; you get a sense of the size of this place. BACK OFF, girls! The silver fox in a number of the pictures is MINE!

<a href="http://www.findagrave.com/cgi-bin/fg.cgi?page=vcsr&GSvcid=441731">China Ashes</a> is my list of people who died in China and the disposition of their ashes was lost. It is especially interesting considering how many of these individuals I could find photos for.

-Recently I have been including a list of my sources to be placed under the ADD NOTE tab. PLEASE do not post my name and number; my ego just doesn't need that and your bio will just look sloppy. My greatest reward is a beautifully formatted memorial. THANKS, YALL!

IF YOU HAVE QUESTIONS ABOUT MY MEMORIALS, PLEASE INCLUDE THE MEMORIAL NUMBER WITH YOUR QUERY.
