Bio

"May His favor be upon you. And a thousand generations. And your family and your children. And their children, and their children. He is for you!"

The only memorials that I manage and suggest corrections for are people who are related to me in some manner. All information provided is from many years of continual family history research contributed by numerous individuals and various credible sources that have been thoroughly cross referenced; and in some cases verified through a professional degreed Genealogist and DNA matches.

I will not submit a suggest a correction unless my research can back up my request. Either by direct documentation or circumstancial facts. Please feel free to use any photo or information that I have submitted here. Also, please note that mistakes can be made even by the best of researchers. Mistakes are so easily and respectfully corrected.

I welcome and appreciate corrections, photos, documents, and additions to all of the memorials that I manage. Let us tell the story of the life lived to the best of our ability, as well as the person's death location. This website may be the only free resource a family member might come across.

I do not mind transferring some of the memorials that I manage, as long as you are related to the person. (Except for my direct grandparents)

I am currently not accepting direct messages here. If you need to contact me regarding any memorial that I manage here, please do so through the "Suggest Edits" button which is located on each memorial underneath the memorial id number.

For anyone interested in doing your own family research, here are some helpful websites that I use. You must read and follow directions and policies and sign up with a user name and password for some. Some of the websites can be tricky to navigate and search. You have to be patient, read thoroughly, and learn each one. One of the greatest means of having confidence in your research, is to thoroughly cross reference multiple sources. Also, read over original documents versus the transcription of a document content. Transcriptions tend to have many mistakes. Original documents have much more valuable and accurate information.
