Sorry to all that have messaged me during the past few years. I lost my husband to lung disease last year. His illness required me to take on many responsibilities, which meant I had little time for my usual hobbies. I hope to be able to start working on the backlog of requests by the end of 2019.

I started hanging out in cemeteries while doing family research. Currently, I'm focusing on Myers and Owen/Owens mostly in Callaway, Audrain and Atchison County, Missouri and Bertels in Stark and Summit County, Ohio.

When I take a photo for my memorials or as a volunteer, I usually take photos of nearby headstones and add them also. When requested and as time allows, I will also check for obits at the local library if the specific death or burial date is known. My library is happily located in the block between my job and my parking spot.

The state of Washington has a fantastic digital archive online. If you are looking in Washington, you should definitely check here:
