I started working with genealogy about four years ago, tracing a family genetic heart condition. In the process I discovered Find A Grave, it has been very helpful in finding information on ancestors. I live in Northeast Iowa and I am happy to help other people with their searches.
Please let me know if you are a relative or family friend and would like me to transfer ownership of a memorial. I will gladly do so, unless I too am a relative to the individual. I would rather the memorial be in the hands of someone that can truely represent who they were.
"Preserve carefully the seed that has been entrusted to thee, that it may grow and thrive. Guard it well. Through thee, my child, shall the obliterated inscription on the old, weather-beaten grave-stone go forth to future generations in clear, golden characters.
