Bio

Hi,
I have been studying genealogy since the late 1980s and appreciate it when I can further my research through the efforts of others. This is a beloved hobby. Please know I work full time. I will take pictures as I can because I know how much it means to a family to be able to honor their loved ones. If you find something I posted that has an error, kindly let me know so we can make it right.
Over the last several years I have devoted a great deal of time and research to cemeteries of color. Frustratingly, this is one of the most underrepresented groups in genealogical research documentation. Names are extremely important to this group to do their research and connect families. Names of the living are discouraged by this website for privacy reasons. Some of my memorials will have survivor names, some of the survivor names are quite old and these individuals are now deceased and can be respectfully listed. I leave in as much information as I can that was originally published in public, and always try to note the source. Names have been left in for identification, if you wish for a name corrected or removed, please notify me, and I will be glad to remove the name. If you are related to a person listed in a memorial that I manage, and you wish to share more information about their life, I would be pleased to transfer the memorial to you or to work with you to edit and make corrections.
I accept email and will help where I can.

You may use any photos that I post.
