May you never forget what is worth remembering, nor ever remember what is best forgotten.
Irish Proverb

I’ve been interested in genealogy ever since I was a teenager, asking relatives “where” the family came from. From there, it grew into an ever larger family tree, especially after I retired. Currently I’m using death notices and obituaries to locate the final resting place of as many of my ancestors as possible so that the information can be preserved for future generations. Many of them already had memorials entered into Find-A-Grave by others, but are missing photos, so I’m trying to obtain those as well. The Find-A-Grave photo volunteers have been absolutely wonderful in helping me, some making numerous trips to the same cemetery and I give them my whole-hearted thanks.

Edits: Please use the “Suggest Edits” button to let me know of any additions or corrections to any of the memorials that I have created or maintain. I would appreciate it if you would provide your source(s) of the information using the “Suggest other corrections” button, as I’m always interested in learning about new sources.

Photos: Please feel free to use any of my photos for your own personal use, however, please include a reference to – Photo courtesy of Find-a-Grave member 49930102.
I do ask that you NOT post Death Certificates to any of the memorials that I have created or maintain.

I think Find-A-Grave is a great collaborative effort to document and memorialize those who came before us. I want to thank everyone who created the memorials for my relatives whom I have now found.

Speaking of collaboration, here is the link to instructions on how to bold, italicize, and hyperlink in Find-a-Grave:

Thanks again to all of you . . .
