I am a retired regulatory attorney with a passion for genealogy. I am a Life member of the Erie Society for Genealogy Research of Erie, Pennsylvania, and a member of the North Surburban Genealogical Society of Illinois. I live in the Chicago area, but have deep roots in most counties of Western PA and beyond. In 1969, I started doing genealogy research with my mother - Gloria Ramsdale Eckert. We did it the old fashioned way - going to courthouses, libraries and walking through cemeteries. In 1972, my mother became a founding member of the Erie Society for Genealogical Research. She is buried in Graham Cemetery, Franklin, Venango Co., PA.
I enjoy using FindAGrave to link families, and to write biographies for my ancestors. I will transfer memorials outside of guidelines if your interest in building out the memorial is greater than mine. Also, please feel free to copy any of my headstone photos, obits or other documents - no credits necessary. But PLEASE, before sharing my people pictures to other sites please ensure the original source, events, and relationships are properly referenced. If you have any questions about my memorials, please don't hesitate to message me. Thank you, and happy hunting!
