Bio and Links
Bio Photo Lifelong resident of northeastern Illinois, I enjoy visiting the cemeteries and searching out headstones, photographing and posting them and trying to weave the links together of other family members in that cemetery or other ones nearby, so that other researchers can utilize my findings. My areas of particular interest are Lake County (where my family started off in this country), DuPage, Kane, DeKalb and Kendall counties, and also Morgan and Scott counties in southern Illinois. I'll also sometimes go out of my "comfort zone" if it's something that looks intriguing.
I try to arrange my photo expeditions according to my schedule and by areas, and of course by weather conditions. I only claim photo requests that I can absolutely fulfill, and try to fulfill them as promptly as possible.
As always, if you'd like to copy a photo, ask permission first in order to let me know how and where it's going to be used, and credit my work. Other than that, I'm happy to help you out in whatever way possible, just contact me.

I see your suggested edit for Leo and his parents. Can you please tell me your references? I am not familiar with his parents. Only his wife and child from my youth in DuPage Co.

Didn't check his draft registration. will look for it and make changes.
I have ran into problems with people and middle person says one thing and another says another. So unless I have a verifiable source I leave it like the tombstone. A draft is verifiable.

Jessica Matthews

You requested that we make a name change for Jessica Matthews Memorial# 37405648 to Josephine with Jessica as a nickname. Can you please tell me the source so I can note it?

Thank you

RE: Re: Lisa Renee McMahon
Not sure how or when it changed. I took my photo back in Sept 2015. I put something under the caption of my photo mentioning that the name changed on the plaque. I am going back through some photos I took awhile back and skipped adding them.

I did find some info out there using each name. Up to you want you would like to do with the name.

Any thoughts as to why your dates & the tombstone dates do not match? I have seen this before but wonder about this stone. What is your source for the birth date of Charles? Thanks for any assistance.

RE: Rev. Kenneth Hansen
Thank you very much! No need to do a transfer; I was assisting Kenneth Hansen's grandson with his family tree, but I'm not related myself. :] I still haven't been able to track down Kenneth's father, Peter Christ Hansen (apparently he's not in the family plot at Mound Cemetery) but if I do I'll let you know. Thanks again!

Hi Rich,

Transfers have been made as requested. I'm sure you'll take good care of them.
