After my father passed away in 2004, I found a passion for researching our family history. Its been the most enjoyable experience of my life. I love meeting new cousins online and sharing information. I am always willing to share any and all information I have gathered.
My fathers parents were both from Hancock County, Illinois, as well as each and every one of my direct lines for four more generations. I have spent a lot of time researching the people of that area.
I would like to express gratitude and love to those of you who have taken your precious time, money, and energy to take photos in the graveyards and those who post pics and info for others to view. What wonderful service you have provided for others.
Please keep in mind that my family tree work is subject to mistakes (some say it's the human in me). My feelings will not be hurt if you send me corrections. I'll always take the time to validate the info and I'll appreciate you for the time it takes to send corrections.
I always ask permissions to copy photos from findagrave. I will never use these photos for financial benefit. I consider myself ethical and mindful of others. I am forever grateful for the work others put in. I too, hope I can be of help to others.
Remember: OCD is a gift if used wisely.
