I love genealogy. So much so that I even created my own genealogy research company called The Formidable Genealogist. After spending so many years on my own family, it's a lot of fun to find amazing discoveries for others.

I'm happy to transfer someone to you if you are a closer relative or it's very important to you. Managing the profiles of relatives who aren't the direct relationships defined by Findagrave has helped me find so many relatives and fellow researchers.

If I've added a photo of a person to a memorial, please contact me to see if I have more photos. I've archived thousands of family documents and photos.

Very passionate about researching my genealogy and work on it every day. Specifically Jensen, Paulson, McFarlane, Davidson, Dickson, Cowles, Chaney, Mooney, Riffle, Deppe, Krause, Morrison, Galbraith, White and Smith.I've also done extensive research on my husband's side- Shaffer, Hickok, Oxley, Moore, Collins, Patterson and Smail. To anyone who is willing to transfer my ancestors and relatives to me, I'm very grateful. I take great pride in being able to manage their memorials and make them as complete as possible. Genealogy is a life long pursuit for me, so managing their memorials allows me to approve correct edits and possibly get in touch with other relatives.
