Bio and Links
Bio Photo Born and raised in Fresno, California of Alabama born parents, got into Genealogy in 1997 when I could not figure out what else to do with this computer on-line. I have built up quite a lot of pictures of old shots of the cemeteries of Clay County and Jefferson County Alabama. I have visited most of the cemeteries of my ancestors and my Wife's ancestors in Missouri, Oklahoma and Arkansas. A Self-proclaimed Historian with a California Historical society (E Clampus Vitus), I am visiting places of historical interest and with my trusty Dimage , Vivitar and Olympus digital cameras have been taking pictures of headstones at whatever cemeteries we may visit and Historical Monuments in our travels in California, Nevada, Arizona, Utah, Colorado, Washington. In Fresno, I have added the 1919 biographies of early Fresno residents from the Paul E Vandor book titled "The History of Fresno County" to as many listings as I could. If you have something you would like to have added to a Bio, just drop me a line.

I follow FindaGrave rules and usually transfer close relatives within 30 days. You can complain to the FindaGrave administrators if you want, but you will likely find they too have little patience for impatient people.

Hi Lester,

Is it possible to edit Memorial #70393438? Eric Tognazzini was also predeceased by a sister, Leilani Lucille Valliant (Aug 1937-Nov 1943).
Thanks for the great work!

His cousin, Verona

RE: Evelyn McMillan Niswander
That was a mistake on my part. I added Mabel Claire Moss who was James Milford McMillan's first wife and there were several children who were mistakenly attributed to his second wife Mabel Veronica Russell. Evelyn McMillan was correctly the child of Jame's second wife Mabel Veronica Russell. I am going to put in a correction for that.

Thank You
