Bio

I started getting interested in my geneology when I realized that the people around me who knew the past would not be around forever. It started with pictures, and now I'm looking for names and dates, who, where, when and why. And every puzzle piece I find is precious.

Please give credit for any photos I've taken if you link them elsewhere. Please put a reference to "Find a Grave" and include my name and member number. It's very discouraging to see photos I've taken put up on other websites with no credit given.

A lot of time and effort has been put into taking them and putting them up for others to see. Findagrave sees photos as copyrighted by the photographer and so do I. Thank you for respecting that.

I wish I could impress on people who leave requests in very large cemeteries how much it would help if they give any additional information they may have. It's like looking for the proverbial needle in a haystack. Any before 1900 are probably difficult or impossible to read. Be patient, we're volunteers.

In most cases the sun can illuminate faded writing on old stones, if you catch it at the right time of day, usually around noon. Some need a little artificial light to help. In a few years some of those faded stones will be unreadable, photograph them now!

This is an awesome resource for genealogists.
