Bio

I am interested in multiple families, most of whom are in the Ohio/Pensylvania/Illinois area. Primary last name interests: Barth, Dillhoefer, Dister/Diester, Eckhardt, Hanna, Ilg, LeComte/LeCompte, Litle, Martin, Nunn, Poux, Robinson/Robison, Schier/Scheer/Schear, Steyer/Stier, Sutton, and Westfall.

I have just started adding memorials from a very large cemetery, Crown Hill Cemetery and Mausoleum in Twinsburg OH. Due to its size, many people within it are still undocumented. All I am able to add at the moment is the information I find on their headstone, and a picture of said headstone. As such, if you want to make corrections, or wish to manage the memorial yourself please feel free to ask. It would make me very happy to see the bare-bones records transform into something amazing.

All photos I post of grave markers were taken by me. I give permission for anyone to use these photos. Nothing makes me happier than to see something I added be utilized in a family tree.

Any portraits will say under the portrait whether or not you have my permission to repost. Giving me credit is appreciated, primarily because I may have similar photos and it's useful for people tracking down their tree.

I love how with Findagrave you can essentially connect the world. It is the only place where a whole family tree can be found - without duplicates - and I think that's amazing. I therefore have started adding ancestors and distant relations of mine whose burial locations are known, and submitting edits to connect existing memorials to their family.

Because accuracy is so important to me, I never submit an edit or revision unless I'm 100% certain that information is correct. That doesn't mean I'm infallible of course. I am happy to discuss any edits both at my personal email and on my message board. I really work hard not to spread misinformation, so let me know if you think anything I have is incorrect. I avoid submitting edits for contested information (for example, someone's birth date being seen on 4 different days in various records. No way to prove which is accurate.)

Thanks, and feel free to contact me at any time with questions you may have. Genealogy is my passion, and I am more than happy to help out with anything - brick walls, research tips, etc. I would make this my living if I could. Nothing makes me happier than to help someone discover a part of their Ancestor's story.

You may find my family tree on Ancestry as well. It's called the Ilg-Martin Family Tree. All sources are cited.
