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).

Thank you so much for posting the newspaper articles about her death. This is my gg grandfather's sister. I see that you have Stonekings in your line as well. Are we related?

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.
