About Me
Hi there! For more than a decade, I've researched my ancestors in Upstate NY, Bavaria, Prussia and beyond; my career is data engineer; I'm obsessive too. The convergence of these things is awesome for researching my family and finding data to share with you.

What I Do On Here
✠ When in the mode I go to cemeteries and take way too many pictures, in methodical order, and towards making sure everyone's ancestors are indexed on Find-A-Grave and findable with their GPS coordinates...and then...
✠ I loosely follow all Find-A-Grave guidelines—which are NOT laws and which the verbiage is never absolute—I will always lean toward the broader collaborative effort of genealogy: memorials must be easy to find for genealogists of any proficiency and appear as fully and completely as possible in the indexes on Ancestry, Family Search, MyHeritage, etc. Focus on the broader picture is really what drives me to do what I do in cemeteries and online.

✠ it's never cool to abbreviate Find-A-Grave!
✠ Find-A-Grave is a research tool and is not where your loved ones are buried.
✠ time is always of the essence for genealogists: do not wait to document and digitize information, pictures, anecdotes or your family tree—information and knowledge evaporates at every tick of the clock.
✠ I focus on cemeteries where I have family and it motivates me to imagine that families of other permanent residents receive a favor because of 'Uncle George.'
✠ everything I do is about genealogy for genealogists; democratizing priceless data to create the stories of those that came before us. I document EVERYTHING I come across to selflessly help others: you should too!
