I've been doing genealogy daily since 1988. Find-a-Grave memorials have been a big help in putting my family tree together. So thank you, contributors!

NOTE ABOUT CONTACTING ME: Please contact me directly at For purposes of returning messages to me through Find a Grave, for some reason, the website does not recognize me or my computer!

NOTE ABOUT MY PHOTO REQUESTS: I very much regret not being able to send a personal thank you note after the fact to anyone who posts a photo at my request. For some reason, I can't find a way to do this! This problem developed after the website's change of ownership.

I've complained about it to Find A Grave, but have had no response. I seem able to do other things, such as adding this to my page, but still cannot find a way to thank people in person.

So even though it goes against my grain to say a thank you note in advance, rather than after the fact, please accept my sincere appreciation if you are the thoughtful photographer and person who has posted such pictures!

If you wish to have a memorial transferred to you, I will probably be more than willing if your relationship is closer than mine. Just ask by using the edit tab on that person's page.
