Find a Grave ID


I am a college graduate with a B.S.N. in nursing. I am married and have 3 children. I work as an OB nurse.I am an ancestry member and photograph many of my relatives' graves that were buried where I live. I have researched my side and my husbands' side of the family. I have searched local cemeteries and found tombstones for other people and have sent photographs to them. I enjoy finding out as much as I can in my search. You have my permission to use my photos, for ancestry, no need to ask, just give me credit for the photo. Most memorials are not related to me so, I am more than willing to transfer if it is your relation. If you have any corrections or new information you would like added, I am more than happy to do so for you, but PLEASE PROVIDE THE SOURCE OR ADD TO MEMORIAL, or I probably won't approve it. Also, I will no longer accept corrections on the burial block and plots for capitalization. If it is correct except for capitalization, I will deny correction. ( 5/16/2021) . If you add spouses or parents ect., please add the info to the memorial of the source as I don't have the time to look them all up to be sure they are accurate. Please feel free to add the obit or other source of information you would like added. Most death dates I add are from Cemetry sources so, they could be burial dates. I feel that is better than not having any clue as to what date in the month they died. Also, don't be trivial about commas and periods.If I have uploaded an obituary onto a memorial that you manage, feel free to type it out and let me know and I will delete my photo of the obituary. I used to type them out and certain FAG members don't respond in a timely manner so, I just upload them now. I do hundreds of obits and, I feel that information is more important!I would love to see pictures uploaded to their memorials!! I love to put a face to each name. I am willing to look up obituaries for the LaSalle, Peru, Oglesby, Spring Valley, Ladd, Mendota, Ottawa area if interested, just contact me. I do this on my own time and there is no charge unless I send it to you. I never refuse Starbucks gift cards or If you want to make a donation to St. Jude Midwest Affiliate 530 NE Glen OakPeoria, IL 61637 for a thank you, that is appreciated.
