Bio

I enjoy taking photos of gravestones in local cemeteries and then doing the research to try to link memorials to their family members. Do I make mistakes? I try not to, but unlike some others on Find a Grave, I admit that I'm human and odds are that I will make some errors. Others have provided great help to me by establishing memorials for members of my extended family, so I am trying to do the same for others.

I am researching the family names of Nehmelman(n), Niederer, Harfst, Deverman(n), Warner, Osing, (mostly in Mason and Tazewell counties of Illinois) and any which contribute to those. If you are related to any of the above, I'd enjoy hearing from you! If you have a relative whose memorial I contributed and would like it to be transferred to you, let me know.

If you have a use for any of the photos I have posted, feel free to copy and download.

I would appreciate it if members would not post death certificates on "my" memorials, as those often have inaccuracies or give sensitive information (suicides, etc.) that isn't something that non-relatives need to know. Same with random newspaper articles mentioning the deceased. Find a Grave, in my opinion, is for burial information and basic life and death information and to link the deceased to family members - not a place to tell everything about them. I will not approve links to memorials to persons whose burial location is unknown.
