Bio

Genealogy researcher since the mid 1990's. It all began when my mother asked me to help find her father's family which came from England. He died when she was 2 years so she knew nothing of her heritage. The internet was in its infancy and most of my research was done by visiting libraries, writing letters, using books and making phone calls. Ah..... the good 'ole days!

My family tree consists of 17,000+ names. My sons are connected to Charlemagne through their French Canadian Ancestors and my granddaughters are descendants of the Mayflower pilgrim William Brewster (their 13th great grandfather).

If I am fulfilling a photo request (particularly for a family member) I will do my best including cleanup of the headstone and various views of your loved ones final resting place. This is often done while battling creepy crawlers (ants and their nests, worms, slugs, and spiders), thorny bushes, geese droppings).

I only make memorials if I have a headstone photo which I have taken myself. First of all because I love walking around cemeteries. It's quiet and serene; this is where I get my exercise usually 1-2 miles in an afternoon; fresh air, Vitamin D; this is my "Me Time".Secondly, too many mistakes are made on FG when some one assigns cemeteries from obits or burial records. It's very frustrating to get them corrected when they are so many years old and the person who created the memorial is no longer active.

To me Find A Grave means just that - Find the Grave!

I am currently filling requests in the Chicago area (north suburbs) and the Phoenix/Scottsdale area besides just walking the rows and snapping hundreds of pictures in an afternoon outing.

If I found one of your family or friends, I will be happy to transfer for you to manage. It's not mine to keep if it belongs to someone else. Please feel free to use any photo I have taken for your own personal use if needed. That is why I do this. (It's called Sharing)

And lastly, Thank You for all your positive feedback and Thank You's on the photos I take for your requests. Remember that a Stranger took time out of their day to help YOU. It's not difficult to click that link and send a quick note of your gratitude.

Family names: Klimczak, Nawiesniak, Czajkowski, Adducci, Clark, Guimont, Bistodeau, Bambrough

I BRAKE FOR CEMETERIES !

Those We Love Don't Go Away.... They Walk Beside Us Every Day.
