Bio and Links

My family research started in 1980. I enjoy helping others in their family research.

In August 2007, I founded the Angel Babies Memorial Project. The mission of this project is to discover and record the gravesites of infants and children who died in New York City and other states between 1798 - 1948 and link them genealogically to their families.
Every memorial serves as a tribute to a youngster who died much too soon. They all deserve to be remembered and honored, and given a sense of dignity and love in death that may have been denied to them in life. By doing so, they will not be forgotten.

Transfer Back of Neese Memorials
Hey, Jim! I have re-transferred the memorials for John B. Neese and Mary Ann Wright Neese back to you, in order for you to transfer them to Josette. It has been a pleasure to be in touch with you, and I hope we can continue our collaboration with this particular branch of the Neese family! Best wishes, Susan

Memorial # 125488516
Thank you for building the memorials for John Burdell Neese and his wife, Mary Ann Wright Neese! Family members went to this cemetery a few days ago to pay their respects because of your contributions! The cemetery office was able to direct them to his wife Mary Ann Wright Neese, and had a section and plot number for her, and she is in an unmarked grave, but they had no record of John's burial location. Could you please share how you were able to build his memorial? The family would like to know where he is buried as well. Thanks for any information you may have on this!

Philomena Trosa
Awhile back you were able to provide me with information about the death date and location 1936 of Philomema Trosa, but here's a kicker. I was able to find a 1940 US Census show her still alive! What would you suggest I do to find the correct date of death?
