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.

I am the only surviving blood family member of Jeff's. He passed away suddenly only 10 months after we lost our mom. Jeff's remains were interred April 2016,and unfortunately the cemetery was not prepared for a gravesite burial, nor was his stone in place at that time, having just recently opened. So there was no closure or sense of completion at the time. I have been unable to return to FL, but intend to this April. You have given me a GREAT gift by "allowing" me to view my brother's stone at this time. A million and one thanks.

Thank you for putting Ed's monument on findagrave. Ed was my dad, Jim's favorite nephew. They were very close growing up.
Would you kindly transfer Ed to me. I would truly appreciate it.
