Bio and Links
Bio Photo I am retired in Boise, Idaho. I have loved spending time in cemeteries since I was a little girl. Helping people by exploring cemeteries and photographing grave markers for them is a dream retirement activity for me.

I walk the rows taking random photos when I am in a cemetery, and add the photos or the entire memorial to Findagrave if they are not in. I particularly concentrate on veterans (and their spouses), infants and children. I feel the veterans have earned the right to go to the front of the line. And I feel that since the babies and the children got so little on earth, at least I can give them some electronic "life".

I am always happy to add any information to a memorial I manage. Just send it. I am also delighted to add obituaries; just make sure that I have the correct attribution to add so the paper's copyright is respected.

If you find any errors of fact, date, relationship, or spelling on any of my memorials, please let me know. As a former professional proofreader, I KNOW that no one is perfect all the time, including me. I will fix it.

I will transfer management of memorials in line with the Findagrave guidelines, which specify relatives in a direct line. Specifically, they say: "Transfer requests should be for direct relatives within four generations. This would be your siblings, parents, grandparents, great-grandparents, children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren. Any non-direct relatives (aunts, uncles, cousins, etc) are not required to be transferred." Please do not ask.

Paul Revere Request
I see you've claimed the photo request for Paul Revere's grave at Morris Hill. I added photos of his gravesite to the entry the day after his burial.

Thank you so much for the photos! They are great! I also appreciate the edit information you sent on the location of her internment. She was a friend of my mother's, and I wanted it to be nicely done and correct. I'm in touch with her daughter and will turn the memorial over to her if she wants it.

On a side note, nothing has ever been settled on my grand aunt Susie's burial. One of her granddaughter's is trying to get something done, but is still dealing with the loss of her mom as well. Hopefully, it will all be settled before too much longer. I really appreciated everything you did to try and help me with it!
