Bio and Links
Bio Photo Common sense and courtesy 'tips the scale' that a person should ask permission to reuse another person's work and you should include a credit by-line if that work is not YOUR original creation! Thank you Robertt John Chudek for letting me use this from your Bio.

I am happy to transfer people not related but please do not ask me to transfer everyone in a cemetery because you want control or everyone who is related to you. Please state relationship.

I only add information when you send it through the edit in the upper right hand corner of the memorial.
Please include your # if you want a transfer!
Thank you.

A love for family history started when my 6th grade teacher asked us to make a family tree.
I talked to my grandparents and wrote letters.
Then one of my Great Aunt's decided to do a book on her side of the family. This ended up in 4 books.
An Aunt and I decided to go visit cemetery's and look into old records. It has been fun to get more pieces of the puzzle.

Pictures are so much more fun than just names. Thank you to those of you who have added pictures and stories.

Several years ago when my younger sister than about age 10 went with me to the old Tinkham cemetery in Indiana and she said,"Doesn't anyone love these people anymore." No one they knew was living, we were their closest relatives.

Thank you to all of you who have worked so hard and gathered so much information. Thank you for the many corrections and additions.

Thank you to the many wonderful volunteers. There will always be the few where everything is "all about me" .

Pictures are all copyrighted and are from the family collection. You may use them but please list source.

RE: Robert E. Stapleton
You're very welcome. I looked for a stone for his wife who was recently deceased but her stone was not in place yet. I'll check back when I'm in V again but if I forget you can remind me in a month or so.

Hi Wanda:
I'm not going to post the Heller information you sent - I don't want this sight to be about sensationalizing things like that. It is a sad story. I'll try to find the obituary to post instead.
Thanks for all of your contributions!

RE: Thank you
You're very welcome. Also, Ewayne Christianson is done also. He was the spouse of one of mine and the plot ended up being wrong anyway. I already notified the contributor who claimed it and made the correction so you can delete the request.

RE: Thank you
You're welcome on the Merta headstone. That was a tough one because it was shaded by the pine tree it was near and there is some mildew on it because of the shaded location obscuring the inscription somewhat. I'll check back when I'm in that section again to see if I can't get a better pic earlier in the day when the angled sun is hitting the face.
