ABOUT ME
     I've been involved in genealogy for 28 years—researching all lines of my family, including ancestors, collateral ancestors, and cousins. I'm an expert in genetic genealogy, with over a decade of experience identifying DNA matches, solving non-parental events (NPEs), and identifying biological parents of adoptees. I also enjoy researching my more than 700 known relatives who served in the military and finding new and creative ways to visualize my research findings.  Virtually all of the memorials I have added and/or manage are for relatives of mine. I aim to add gravestone photos, obituaries, military service information, and relationship links to as many as I can.
     I am a lead member of the "One-Name Study – Ulster Bowes" research group, which is using documentary and Y-DNA evidence to trace Bowes descendants and link Scots-Irish Bowes families originating from Counties Fermanagh, Monaghan, and Cavan, Ireland. Descendants of this Bowes family are located in Ireland, the UK, Australia, Canada, and the USA.

FULFILLING MY PHOTO REQUESTS
     If you fulfill any of my photo requests, please also consider emailing me the full-size images at "RBoasAncestry [at] gmail.com" (replace [at] with @). I'm also interested in recording plot numbers, burial dates, and GPS coordinates and archiving cemetery maps, if available. Thank you!

POLICY ON USING MY PHOTOS AND RESEARCH
     I grant permission to individuals to use my own GRAVESTONE photos on other genealogy or cemetery websites or in family trees, AS LONG AS you credit me to this effect: Photo copyright R. Boas, FindAGrave.com member number 47304667. Used with permission.
     I DO NOT grant permission to repost my posted portraits, snapshots, purchased documents, etc. Contact me to request otherwise.  If you use ANY text from, or screenshots of, my managed memorial pages, or if you incorporate ANY of my memorials' relationship links into your own family tree, please CREDIT ME in an accompanying comment or attached source citation to this effect: Written/Researched and transcribed by R. Boas, FindAGrave.com member number 47304667.
     Please do not use my research or portions of my family tree (ie. relationship links) in your public family tree without attribution to me (in short, if you first learned it from one of my FindAGrave pages, CREDIT MY RESEARCH). This gives me due credit for my work, enables others to find and get in touch with me, and enables me to quickly identify my own "circular research" during my further, ongoing research. If you cannot abide by this, then please keep your unsourced family tree with my research private, NOT public. Thanks!
