Bio and Links
Bio Photo I am an adoptee whose journey to locate my biological family led me to Penn Yan, New York. With the assistance of fellow Find a Grave volunteers, I successfully uncovered my roots! Now I am dedicated to helping others fulfill their quests for the truth while continuing to search for my own. I pledge to do all I can to help others while treating everyone (both the living and those who have passed before us) with dignity and respect. If I can help you in any way, please do not hesitate to ask.

Hi Jan,

Thanks so much for doing this for us, our family certainly will treasure these pictures. I grew uo in Pa but now I live in Ca and hardly ever get back there, although I love that area

I take it that the picture of the 5 graves at the parents and their children?

Thanks again Jan

Dear Jan,

Thank you so much for providing this information for my Ancestry works. I had searched for 2 years for my great grandfather. Through Find A Grave I was able to finally locate him. This means the world to me. He was like a ghost in the family and so sad to think about how he died. Alone and in a State Hospital. I should be receiving a copy of his death certificate any day now. Without Find A Grave and you Jan, I would not have this information.

My warmest gratitude to you.
