Find a Grave ID


I'm a genetic genealogist and Ancestry guru. I passionately work on my family tree and help others with theirs. I've helped some who were adopted find their natural birth parents and may eventually help law enforcement solve criminal cases through their DNA. I enjoy being outside, walking through and gathering data from cemeteries to help others in their quest to find their ancestors. Some of the photos I take are not the best quality and I'm not offended if you add a better photo of a grave marker. Just let me know, and I'll delete mine. I don't always have the time or energy to haul shovels, trimmers, jugs of water, etc to clean grave markers so they look prime for a photo. At least you'll have confirmation of where your loved one is buried and what the marker may look like when and if you should want to visit the grave yourself. I volunteer at some cemeteries cleaning thousands of baby graves and veteran grave markers throughout the year. My ancestors are predominantly from England and Scotland. I've traced my roots back to the early 1600's. It's an ongoing process that has captured my curiosity going back to my youth. I'm a native to Michigan and currently reside here. My photos are copyrighted but I give permission for you to use them on your personal family tree. They are not to be used in social media, Ancestry and other websites. Some sites steal volunteer's photos and then profit off it by charging others to view them. I feel as though that's just wrong and don't give permission for my photos to be used in that way. Thank you for honoring my request.
