Bio

I live in Lawrence Co., Ohio and am a history teacher, so genealogy is my gig. I have been chasing family tree leads and mysteries since the 1970's and love all the documents available online now! Feel free to send me any corrections to my memorials or add a better picture then I have added, but PLEASE, only if mine is not readable. If you would like ownership of a memorial, just message me with your relationship to the person. If it is not my relative, I will gladly transfer it. I also volunteer for RAOGK (Random Acts Of Genealogical Kindness) for my county at raogk.org if you need the occasional lookup.

A little about me is that I dislike people adding FAG memorials for relatives, just to connect up other family members. FAG was created for actual graves, not unknown burials. That is what Ancestry or FamilySearch family trees are for, not FAG.

That is one reason why I have totally photographed a few area cemeteries; so people not able to visit the area might be able to locate their family members' final resting places.

How do I operate? As I photograph the cemeteries, I will add pictures to those memorials that do not have one. If a memorial already has a picture that is readable I will not add another one, as I find that as an insult to someone who has already taken the time to add one. When I run across a stone that does not have a memorial I will add a new memorial. I then use the area's census and various records to connect as many family members as I can to that memorial/picture, since many times family members are buried in the same area. So, if you are looking for a stone from any of the cemeteries below, and it is not listed as a memorial for that cemetery, it does not have a stone or marker. If no picture exists and there is a death certificate or obit available, proving they were indeed buried there, I will add it. Yes, I know I'm fallible and may have accidentally missed a stone here or there, but it is to the best of my ability. I usually only photograph in May when the cemeteries are freshly cut and flowers put out for Memorial Day. It makes for better pics. The cemeteries I have photographed include:

Hecla Cemetery
Sugar Creek Cemetery
Lawrence Furnace Cemetery
Etna / Etna Furnace Cemetery
Saint Marys Catholic Cemetery of Pine Grove
Sacred Heart Cemetery
Bald Knob Cemetery (with additional help)
Dennin Cemetery (although I believe that I missed a few here)
