|Bio and Links|
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
http://gravelocator.cem.va.gov/ 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.

Thank You So Very much for the very nice pictures of their markers!!
You are a life saver as now we have actual proof that they are actually buried there. That has been in great doubt until recently.
Thanks so much for all that you do for Find A Grave

THANK You! Thank you, Thank you. My step-sister remembers going to his funeral when she was 5 years old, but could not remember how to find his grave site. We are so grateful for you to take the time to do this for us. It really means a lot.
God Bless you,
