I have been an active member of Findagrave since its early incorporated beginnings in 2000.

As a researcher, seasoned third consecutive generation veteran (1992 - 2000), first responder, death services provider, records and information manager, wartime (2005 - 2006) casualty office supervisor, and most importantly one who has lost, grieved, and handled multiple lifetimes of family members affairs with the utmost respect, care, and due diligence in a very short time frame, I grasp the depths of both importance and personal meaning of protection and preservation of family members rights and precious legacies until their very last breath and beyond into the priceless posterity which remains beyond their physical departure.

I'm Eric Jelle, have been researching family since 1985 with an emphasis on preservation and innovative improvement of the tools at the disposal of like minded researchers everywhere.

My techniques and networking methods have resulted in one international family reunion, on-line publications at, a wealth of family photos spanning up to six generations beyond his own, and the pleasure of contributing to the success of researchers around the globe mainly with the innovative Genedocs forms library and the 26 member Photographic Family Group Sheet. Genedocs is on Facebook or just Google it for the home site.

Happy Hunting!
