Bio and Links
Bio Photo Genealogy is a passion of mine from when I was very young. My grandmother told me wonderful stories about our families and I have been doing family history for over 30 years. I have traveled all over the world photographing family graves and writing books on my different families. I need another 25 years to finish everything I have started!

PLEASE do not add birth or death certificates to my memorials!

RE: Farrers
So sorry to hear about your illness. I completely understand. I actually kind of forgot that I even asked you.

I hope you find Edwina! :-)

Karen, Thanks for doing the Christen family in Pleasant Plains Cemetery in Sangamon County IL.
They were good family members and I appreciate your submissions. Thank you.

As always thanks for your prompt attention. If you only knew how many more links I could probably send you.

Yep, it's been awhile since we've had a blizzard. Both of my girls are in the DC area so they'll get it too.
Take care,

Hi Karen - can you take a look at this memorial and the picture you added? You have a picture for Lillie's headstone, but you have also added a picture for Mary R. Henson? Thanks! LG

RE: Hicks & Hughes

Oh Karen, you have such a generous heart to photograph and upload all of those Memorials. Quite often, I just happen to run across info while looking for someone entirely Non-related. I just Love connecting other Dots whenever I stubble across them.
Happy New Year!! {{{huggers}}} Sandi
