Bio

I have a philosophy not necessarily a bio to maintaining and managing memorials; and that is to provide dignity and respect to the deceased and their families. One thing I have learned through conducting my genealogic research is that our genealogical history is very important for too many reasons to mention and different levels of priority to each and everyone of us. Our family history is as much individualistic as we are individuals.

I feel as one of our family historian we have to cement our place in history for future generations. Graves and headstones are great way of doing that; but they only tell part of our story. Connecting them to their families adds to the story of their lives and who better to tell our family’s story than us.

I believe that genealogy is a collaborative effort not an individual one. The creating and posting of individual graves are a wonderful start and appreciate everyone's help in documenting the site. Many people have worked hard documenting cemeteries all over the world and should be commended on their effort.

Eventually there will be a passing of the battan; and there is no one better suited for that then a loved ones family member or a close friend. I am not looking for another notch in my belt or hording any memorials. I only want to help people in documenting your family history. I am happy to manage and make changes to anyone’s memorial for you or transfer a memorial to someone that cares. I know how frustrating it can be to try to update a memorial (especially a close loved one) to only continually hit a brick wall.

Please feel free to transfer management to me for your loved ones memorials as well if you are no longer able to manage them yourself. I will show them the same respect that I show my own family members. Feel free to contact me and request a memorial for someone that I am managing. I am happy to transfer memorials to someone that has a closer relationship than I have to the deceased.

Respectfully,

Mark
