Bio and Links
Bio Photo My interest in findagrave started when I worked on a family tree for my husband. We found some of his relatives and where they are buried through this site. It was comforting to look at their headstones and imagine what life was like for them more than 200 years ago.
I would like to thank all the volunteers for their time and effort in photographing and documenting the grave sites. I was so impressed with their work that now I am a volunteer and I enjoy spending my free time at the cemeteries documenting headstones of which some, unfortunetly, will be totaly unreadable in a few years.
In photographing cemeteries I noticed some of the older, hard to read headstones have been scratched to try and make out a name or date. I DO NOT alter the headstones in any way, instead, I take several photos from different angels to try to read them.
If you find any mistakes, please contact me. I am not perfect and do make mistakes and when they are pointed out to me I gladly make the correction.

Any photo from a cemetery that I've posted at Find-A-Grave may be used for family trees, personal use, etc.

Ft Custer
Hi Monika - thank you for posting those photos so quickly. I recently inherited a number of memorials at Ft Custer & they all need work - after plot numbers and family links are added, photo requests are being made. Any photographic help you're able to lend to the project is greatly appreciated. Thanks and best wishes for Christmas and the coming New Year.

Deegan, Thompson, Walton & Jackson Memorial
Thanks for inputting all the updates for the family of Magdalena Clementz Zorn Froman Thompson. I appreciate your time. I believe Margaret Thompson and Magdalena are the same person but can't prove it at this time. I'll send another edit when I have more evidence.

It's people like you who make Find A Grave great!

Harold Martini
Hello Monika,

Thank you so much. I would love if you would transfer to me. I have had hand surgery this year and had not had a chance to add him. I know his sons will be happy. Are you from Kalamzoo? Did you know Harold and Ella?

Thank you so much!
