Bio

My first exposure to FindAGrave.com was in 2019 after being shocked through DNA results that my mom had a different father than anyone living knew, and that a particular man my deceased dad’s brother had been researching was my paternal grandfather I knew nothing about either (he had assumed the Sheridan name at age 12). So, through DNA results, without having been adopted, I learned that both my maternal and paternal grandfathers were of different family lines than I thought.

I began to research Ancestry.com, Fold3.com, Newspapers.com, and FindAGrave.com. And along the way I came across FindAGrave memorials that didn’t pertain to me, but I went ahead and searched for obituaries with my Newspapers.com subscription and uploaded clippings. I’ve also gone to the local cemetery and photographed hundreds of grave and mausoleum sites as a way of giving for others searching like me.

What helpful websites! And what helpful volunteers for my many gravesite photo requests and suggested edits. Thank you.
