Bio and Links
Bio Photo I live in Grand Rapids, Michigan. I enjoy photographing tombstones for FindAGrave. I have even been known to dig stones out of the ground. :)

I do not consider my photographs "copyrighted". I post them for the sole purpose of helping other genealogists in their family research. However, if you post the photos on ancestry or another website, photo credit would be appreciated. :)

My goal is not to impress others by high numbers. I create many memorials just so they are documented, and try to add pertinent information to them. I'm more than willing to transfer these memorials to someone who can take better care of them, as long as they are not my relatives.

Surnames I am researching: Solomon-Haberman (Jennings Co. IN & Saline Co. MO); Stoneking-Livingston-Long (Greene Co. PA & Tyler Co. WV); Wagaman-Turner (Missouri, Kansas, Washington); Pannekoek-DeVoogd-Waterloo (Kent Co. MI); LePard-Densmore (Kent, Ionia & Barry Co., MI); Kirby-Payne (Howard Co. MO); Riggle-Guist-Ortz (PA & OH).

Harry D Adams
Hi, Kathy,

I hope you are doing well.

I know there are folks who frown on death certificates on find-a-grave, but I wanted to let you know that the certificate you posted for Harry Adams, Memorial # 62501219, allowed me instantly to identify him as the person I was looking for. Thank you.

Now I can get him linked to his family.

Take care.

Hi! Thanks for noting no marker found. My great-grandmother, so when adding her middle name, noticed no picture. Now I know why! Very excited when I was able to confirm her middle name! May explain my mom's middle name of Nell? (:

It has been requested of me to add this daughter to her parents. Mother # 86113958 and Father: 86113957. I would appreciate if you could do this for me. I can not add them since they are your memorial.
Thanks again,
