Bio

I live in Lyndon, Kansas and work near Burlington, where I was born and raised. I have been very interested in genealogy since around 2000, and love to share information with others. In my spare time, you will probably find me, iPhone in hand, walking and taking pictures in one of the local cemeteries; that's something I really enjoy doing. Every memorial tells a story; no one should be forgotten!

I concentrate in Coffey and Osage counties in Kansas, near where I work and where I live. I have personally photographed and catalogued two cemeteries: Lorenz Schlichter Memorial Cemetery in rural Coffey county, and Calvary Cemetery near Burlington. I have also photographed most of Lyndon Cemetery. I do my best to create and maintain family links, research and update dates and bios, and use Ancestry.com and Newspapers.com to assist me in doing so, along with other sources.

Note: I take my photos to share with all. You have my express permission to copy my photos from Find A Grave and use them on other sites. Attribution is appreciated, but not necessary. This is a hobby for me, I enjoy doing it.
