Bio

This is all my brothers fault! He's the one doing the genealogy.... He's traced our family Back to 1635 in Germany on my mothers side, and to WASHINGTON and MADISON on my fathers side.

I made the mistake of going for a ride with him one day on a visit to Kansas.... ended up taking 360 pictures for a little(?) cemetery in JACKSON CO, KA (including the new CEMETERY PHOTO,.... and I hate Cemetery photos!!). Since then, I have done 120 complete Cemeteries, Including adding new ones in the State of Iowa, and Chippewa, Grant, Rock & Iowa(2) Counties in WI. and Thunder Bay, Ontario. I'm currently working on 2 in Wisconsin.

As corrections and additions are an important part of FAG, please send all SAC's you have using the EDIT button on the memorial [with 100 Plus cemeteries & 20,000+ entries, I don't wish to chase names].

You may use the photos I've posted for your own personal use. Please follow the FAG guidelines regarding credit, etc.

If asking for transfers, follow FAG's rules and make the request using the EDIT button. State your specific relationship and member no. I will not chase names in my 20,000+/- entries.
Do not ask for transfers if you are merely "COLLECTING" (IE you have 34 entries, but are "managing" 250, particularly if you can't even link husband and wives between the memorials that you are managing!) That's what virtual cemeteries are for.
If you can't put the relationship in words, perhaps I should retain management of the memorial until someone more closely related requests it. I'm looking for an exact relationship, not "my great-grandmother was a Smith". (If you want management simply to consolidate your relatives, take a look at Virtual Cemeteries as a way to do this.) PLEASE DON'T INSULT ME BY SAYING THAT YOU WOULD LIKE TO ADD DATA!

I am also now trying to research and add more Bio information for my entries. I have four cemeteries photoed that were done by "inactive" contributors, and expect to get many more transfers to make the BIO corrections and complete the missing links.

My real job is to watch over MY 400+ year old oak, a "Heritage" tree, 16+ feet around. It's one of 10 Oaks over 10 feet in circumference on the farm. We had 8, but a tornado took #2, and opened up the woods, where we found 3 more.
