Since 2001, I have researched and collected information to create family trees for relatives and friends. In 2004, I flew back to Buffalo, New York, to visit family. I spent a few days at cemeteries looking for burial locations of relatives that had past. Not only did I find the graves of my great grandparents, I also found three young children born to them that I wasn‘t aware of.

While searching FINDAGRAVE today, I find memorials that provide information to add to my Family Trees. A big THANK YOU to all volunteers! Your dedication and hard work helps in my research.

I live about 90-miles south of San Francisco in Gilroy, California. I would be happy to help another member by taking pictures and/or collecting any information. I decline to give permission to use my photos for resale, for profit, or to upload to a different web site without my permission.

Your family and friends memorials are cherished as my own. I will NEVER DELETE a memorial I have created or a picture I have added, unlike other contributors. This is a selfish and inconsiderate act. The flowers placed, the notes written, and the pictures added should remain for everyone to view and share.

I am happy to transfer ownership of non-family memorials to their family members and share my pictures with prior permission. My family can contact me directly about transfers.

Some memorials are difficult to read. If I made a mistake or you can provide more information, please send me an email. Your help is greatly appreciated.
