I grew up in Lancaster, OH as the 5th child in a family of 6. I have 3 sisters and 2 brothers. I currently live in UT and I've been here since December 2015. I was bitten by the genealogy bug when I was a teenager but didn't really do anything w/ it until about 10-15 years ago. Most of my dad's family history was done by a cousin and her mom. I'm attempting to work on my mother's side of the family. Some of the names I'm researching are Kauffman, Bell, Mason, Riley and various others.

Please feel free to use any of the photos I have taken for your personal use. I try to make them the best I can. I carry grass clippers and a soft brush and rag so I can get a photo that shows all possible information without disturbing the stone. I also try to get the best light and even use my own shadow to make sure that the photo shows the best possible detail of the stone for their loved ones. My goal is to create clean, clear accurate memorials that will HONOR THE MEMORY of each individual.
