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.

Thank you for taking the time to obtain the photo! Much appreciated! She is my GrGrGrGrandmother and she had lots of descenedents. We are going to get her grave marked so she does not get lost. Without your input, none of us would have known the site was not marked. J. Haight.

Sue Ann - you are a genealogy angel! I am so thrilled to see the added data...and the pictures of Mary E's grave made me cry. Yes, it was so sweet to see how closely she was able to be buried to her husband. What were they thinking back then?!?!

Thank you so very, very much for what you do. For those of us who will probably never visit the gravesites of loved ones long gone, you are a dream come true and the very next best thing.
Thank you.
Now...Can you give me some ideas of how to get her grave marked? Who do you suggest I contact to get a gravestone or marker placed for her.
To see that unmarked grave was so very sad. I do not want her to remain unmarked!
