Bio

Feel free to submit any corrections or additional information to any of my memorials. I will be happy to update them as soon as I can.
Feel free as well to use my photos for whatever purpose you desire, such as your family tree. I do not need to be credited.
(PLEASE NOTE: If you message me with a request regarding a specific memorial, please include the memorial ID number in your message.)
The photos I have added are intended as a resource to help people to further their genealogical research, as well as for historical documentation of grave sites.
Most of the memorials I have added are people I am not related to. If you are a relative and would like me to transfer management of a memorial to you, just message me and ask and I will gladly do so.
I try to keep my memorials as updated as possible. I regularly go back over my work and add whatever information I can find. Accuracy is very important to me. However, I am only human and therefore bound to make mistakes from time to time.
My contributions to this site are done respectfully and with honor to the deceased, regardless of what they did in life.
*I must make it clear: I am NOT a "collector" of memorials. I do not add memorial pages for the sake of increasing the number of my contributions. I am simply a younger person with quite a lot of time on my hands. Genealogy and graving are not mere hobbies for me; they are essential to my research in history. Moreover, this endeavor is a collaborative one, and owing to the overwhelming number of deceased persons, we must all work together to document these burial places before all traces of them are forever lost to time.

When I was young, I was afraid of cemeteries. Now, ironically, they are some of my favorite places. Graves are incredibly important resources for family history; as a historian and genealogist, I enjoy researching what I discover about the lives of the people I am paying tribute to. I also appreciate the peace, quiet and natural beauty to be found in graveyards, especially older ones.
It's sort of like detective work. It is addicting but oddly satisfying in a way I can't describe. There's nothing else quite like it.

My primary focus at the moment is Mount Carmel Cemetery in Hillside, Illinois. I also work in various other cemeteries in the Chicago area, but I also add memorials to cemeteries around the world.
