Bio

I am a part-time librarian and a when-I-have-the-time hobbyist graver.

My father was an avid fan of Find a Grave and he introduced me to this site before he passed away in 2008. Memorial # 4664473

You can feel free to use creative commons with the photos I take if you'd like to use them in your genealogy or family history projects. (But please do not add my photos to other websites without giving proper credit). I am also a digital preservationist and am of the school of thought that quality is of utmost importance when creating and maintaining online memorials. I strive to only take great photos so families doing genealogical work have something special to attach to their loved one. However, in my earlier days of posting, some of my images may be not as good as what I produce today. If you happen to take a photo of a headstone that is much better quality than mine, I am happy to take mine down. My pride is attached to connecting families to their loved ones.

That being said, I LOVE to find relatives and homes for the memorials I manage. I am not concerned if you are a next of kin-type relative; if you care enough to want to manage a memorial then I honor that. So, IF you see a memorial you'd like TRANSFERRED, I'm more than happy to do so, just put in the request via the "Suggested Edit" option. (Will transfer ANY except those in my Family Virtual Cemetery). ***Also, to expedite edits please use the EDIT tab that Find a Grave provides on each memorial. "Suggested corrections" should be used for transfer requests or other edits that are not options under the EDIT tab.***

Unless they are in my Virtual Family Cemetery, THEN I HAVE NO INFORMATION ON THE PEOPLE OF THE MEMORIALS THAT I MAINTAIN OTHER THAN THEIR BURIAL LOCATION.

Please do not send me requests to change the entry of MAIDEN name for Males whose name origin indicates that they are LATINO. This name is often their mother's maiden name and used for lineage purposes. Maybe a suggestion would be for Find A Grave to add an entry space for this.

My family lines are Schmidt/Wassem and Johnsen/Hale. My husband's family lines are Alves/Carvalho and Bacellar/Huet.
