Bio and Links
Bio Photo More than two decades ago my mother showed me a notebook she used when she was in high school to record some family history. I've been working on our genealogy ever since. Most of my research involves French Canadian and New England families, as well as my husband's Ohio German and Ukrainian roots.

I love the opportunity that Find A Grave offers for helping others find the missing pieces of their family "puzzles".

Santa Fe National Cemetery: Many thanks to Katrina, who has taken over as curator of the International Wargraves account. With her help I have moved almost 4000 erroneous memorials for veterans who are actually buried elsewhere, and they have merged another 1000 plus duplicates associated with the same original bad uploads. HOWEVER there are still lots of bad memorials listed for Santa Fe. Some are inadvertent duplicates, but most are deliberate errors perpetrated by volunteers who repeatedly violate Find A Grave guidelines prohibiting memorials for living spouses as well as memorials added simply because the person served in the military. If the person is not listed in the Santa Fe National section of the VA's Gravesite Locator at then they are probably NOT buried at SFNC.

Please feel free to use any photo I have taken in on-line or personal family trees. It would be nice if you would credit me for the photo.

If a memorial I have added is a family member of yours, I am happy to transfer management. I will also usually transfer out of FAG guidelines if there is a good reason. Please ask politely. I do not respond well to nastiness.

I am happy to receive edits but please do not ask me to post obituaries unless you wrote them, hold the copyright, or have explicit permission from the writer. This is against Find A Grave policies. Feel free to write a bio yourself paraphrasing the information, but I will remove references to living individuals in most cases for privacy reasons.

Please use the edit tab for corrections and transfer requests, it heads off a lot of potential problems.

PLEASE - No drama.

Howard and Bess Rose photos
Thank you very much. Howard died in 1998 and I think Bessie is still living. The family must be waiting to put both dates up at the same time.

Thanks for the heads-up on the dup. I spelled it the way the gravesite locator had it and didn't see the memorial with the alternate spelling. Kim and I will take care of it. :-)

RE: Wanda/Phyllis Wade
I will! Pretty funny. I've caught names carved on stones twice, funny typos: "Off into the wild blue younder" - etc. We're all human! Either the cemetery record is wrong or the database is wrong. Or he had two wives and the officials are confused about which wife is being buried! haha.
