I love learning about my ancestors and who I come from. I enjoy helping others climb their family tree as well. I am a member of the DAR and and can assist with lineage for applications. It's my pleasure to help others honor those that came before. I love connecting with distant cousins.
If you are interested in connecting with kin, I urge you to leave flowers with a note on memorial sites. State that you are related to the person and that you are open to connecting with others. I have had people reach out to me thinking I'm related, and no way of knowing who requested the photo months later.
If a photo does not make sense, please click it and view the comments. Often if no marker is present or a marker does not have an inscription, I will include a photo of the plot or marker and explain in the comments.
Please feel free to use the photos I have taken of your loved ones in any way you wish. If there is anything you would like me to correct, transfer or remove from this site, please do not hesitate to ask.
My one wish for my fellow Find A Gravers is to focus on what you CAN do and not waste your efforts on what you can not do.
Remember to respect the living while honoring the dead.
