Bio

I began an exercise to see how far I could work the family trees with digital sources, and what good sources were available online. Find a Grave is one of the best.

I work only as it relates to my own families, or the search of others for information on my families lines. I don't work FAG as an end in and of itself, so I don't spend time entering massive numbers of memorials, or accumulating memorials to manage.

I use the site as a place that can often verify and support otherwise hard to come by dates, and provide photographic evidence of same. I've gotten frustrated with the recent plethora of "non-burial" memorials where the genealogists have come in as an extension of their research and deemed it appropriate to create entries that have none of this facility, and no proof that a burial even exists in any given cemetery. It seems to me a waste of time to provide these memorials that fail to give evidence of anything but some genealogists research, but no hard burial evidence/sources. I also feel slighted by an administration that allows this activity.

I am happy to help with those family members, or their relatives, that I can.

I attempt to make anything I post open to public use without my permission, including any photo's I have taken.

Feel free to contact me if you have corrections or additions to any memorial I manage, but please use the 'edit' tab options on the memorial itself, to make a requested change.
