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.

Hello Sue,

Yes, I would like that very much! If you don't mind, you can email them to me as well. It's much appreciated! I'm sorry I didn't respond to your last email. I don't come on much, but I am trying to get on more often. Thank you for all you do!

RE: Richard Lindstrom
It might have been the last sunny day for a while and they just got the stone set. I couldn't resist. Just had to go. The family came while I was taking the photo. They had quite a group there.

Hello Sue,

Thank you so much for the time that you obviously dedicate to volunteering on Find A Grave.

I would like to request that you transfer my Great-Grandparents to me.

They are the parents of my Maternal Grandfather and I would very much appreciate the transfer.

Thank you,

RE: The book by Hawley
I found the books at the library and then I found online copies. If you want the links just let me know. It's amazing how much information is in these books! There is 4 books. I'm currently working on book 3 and am about 3/4 of the way through it.

Amanda : )

RE: Nellie Burchett #62640595
Thank you for the info update. That maiden name cancels out my family links to a Nellie (Castle) which, obviously does not match your Nellie. Isn't it amazing how the mention of a Maiden name can make a difference in family connections? Again, thank you for your efforts.

Lindstrom Photos
Awesome photos. Thank you. I'm working on the Richard Lindstrom photo in the Sutton Cemetery over here. I haven't been able to locate the grave yet. I'll make a phone call this week to get more information.
