**I hate having to post this, but lately there have been too many members who are very rude and seem to think that we should be processing their edits TWO or THREE days after they suggest the edit! According to Find A Grave rules, we have 30 days to accept the edit and then if for some reason we don't get to it by then, Find A Grave automatically makes the edits. If you don't know the rules, please read them! I DO NOT get emails when an edit is made. I have a life other than Find A Grave, so I DO NOT check my edits daily! I try to check every week or so. I am also dealing with health issues, so please realize that not everyone has multiple hours every day, to spend online. Please think before you send a rude message. I am sorry to those who follow the rules, that you had to read this. Unfortunately the few that want to be rude, seem to ruin it for everyone else.**


I was born, raised and live in beautiful Northwestern Illinois. I love searching through old cemeteries for my family and helping others find theirs. I hope to get photos taken at many of the area cemeteries and posted on Find A Grave, as time permits. I am our family genealogist and love history and antiquing.

Some of the family surnames I am researching: Lyon/Lyons, Millet, Edwards, Mitchell, Goodmiller/Guthmuller, Keck, Johnson, Stone, Grandy, Hazelton, Finkenbinder, Throne, Machamer, Hartman, Dubs, DeLong, Keeler/Kahler, Culbertson, Clay, Ortmeier, Hoefer, Ploeger, Krugjohann, Bokemeier, Knauer, Rath, Haas, Handel, Groezinger, Accens, Miller, Schleuning, Schnider, Manion, Patton, Oldham, Kavanaugh, Noland, Vertrees, Layman, Williams, Nalley, Henderson

On my husbands side: Groezinger, Koepp, Gerner, Slonecker, Mapes, Osterday, Justus, Byrum, Beardsley
