***** IF REQUESTING A TRANSFER OR A PERSONAL CHANGE REQUEST, PLEASE SEND ME AN EMAIL TO THE ADDRESS AT THE BOTTOM OF THIS BIO TO ALERT ME and THEN DO THE NORMAL TRANSFER REQUEST I get about 100 Change requests a week, most of them bulk information from archival volunteers and deal with them in chunks when I have time... sometimes same day, sometimes 2 months from now. Otherwise it may be quite awhile before I see your Request*****
I am an amateur genealogist tracing my family and have made wonderful use and am extremely grateful to the various members here at Find a grave and other genealogist sites. I live outside Albuquerque, NM and I am willing to try to take photos and/or find plots for families in the Bernalillo and Sandoval counties. I am also willing to work on interesting projects such as boothill cemeteries in Northern/Northwest New Mexico provided I have some information to begin with.
I am researching/finding my family: Coopers, Omholts, Orrs, Dunkles, Johnsons of Algona Iowa, Grants of Silver Lake, Wisconsin and their spouses families and descendants. As I find family in rural cemeteries, I may add the whole cemetery records. If I have a relative of yours and it is not in my virtual family cemeteries, feel free to request a transfer via the suggest changes page. Please let me know how you are related to that person.
***NOTE*** I am not related to anyone buried in New Mexico, feel free to request a transfer but tell me how you are related. If you are requesting a transfer from Pennsylvania... I've done a fair amount of transcription and family in-fill even though I'm not related unless you trace back to Orr, Winnett, Patterson, Douglass or Dunkle. Feel free to request a transfer... the worst that happens is I say Hi cousin, let's talk. IN ANY OTHER STATE, I am probably related to the individual somehow in my tree... I will almost always defer to direct descendants but please understand I have grown old already with family collectors that do nothing with a memorial. Otherwise I believe if you are an active 'Graver', I'd rather a memorial be in good hands than a strangers... but don't be surprised if I look at how 'active' you are... I just want memorials to be completed to the best of the owners ability.
I started here not only to give a permanent record to my kin but also to network for photos and information with my cousins... quid pro quo I hope. ***End Soap Box
