Bio and Links
Bio Photo I've been a family history researcher for over 20 years. I enjoy taking road trips and try to take cemetery photos for others when I can. I have added many names from obits that I have copies of.
I don't post obits from within the last 70 years. I also DO NOT create memorials for recent deaths except my own family.

If I have added a relative of yours who is not also mine, I'll gladly transfer those to you or delete so you can create your own. They should be maintained by family. I just might be able to find the obit, too.

It really helps when you use the EDIT tab to request transfers, links or add bio info, because a link directly to the memorial is included then so PLEASE use it. Remember whenever asking for edits from anyone you don't know what difficult circumstances they may be going through, like personal health issues, family health issues, a death in the family, computer or financial issues or just a nice vacation away from the computer. Please be courteous and patient.

I give permission to use my photos. The common courtesy of acknowledgement is appreciated. If there is a photo on a memorial from any grave in Hall County, Nebraska or any county nearby, that either you aren't happy with or the photographer won't give you permission to use it, I will be glad to take another photo for you.

Tamson obit
Thanks so much for the obit. I actually had looked for it but guess I didn't search long enough or I missed it.

RE: Photo request for Elizabeth Rath
I will see what I can do. This will take a while if I am able to get anywhere. Because there are 82 requests they may not want to be very helpful. I have even told them I will search the records myself if they want me, so working on it.

RE: Marcus James
Hi Laura,
Ok, thanks very much, I will contact the other memorial owners. Can you remove the former note about the daughters once the actual links are added? Thanks!

I have added a photo for J.T. Bullard to his memorial. I hope that is ok. If not let me know and I will remove it. Thank you by the way for adding his memorial. He was well know in our history of Chatsworth, IL.

Martha Meadows Spencer, Riverview Cemetery, McCook NE
I see you created the page for subject above. I am with local genealogy group here in McCook trying to help the City of McCook regroup their cemeteries since records were burned in the mid 1930's. In reviewing I find that I have Martha and husband Thomas listed in the Memorial Park Cemetery. I will post pictures when I get to reviewing that larger city cemetery. Could you please move this memorial page to Memorial Park Cemetery, McCook, NE. THANKS! Sherrie Dack, SW NE Genealogy Secretary

Thank you for the page for George Schaller. It was a nice surprise. He was the brother of my direct ancestor.

His obit contains information pertinent to the family migration to America.

Thank you, again.

Miller Photos
Laura -- Thanks so much for filling my photo requests for Thomas J. Miller #69356959 and his 2 sisters, Hannah K. and Rachel C. I appreciate your extra efforts in taking and posting close-up and distant photos and transcribing the hard-to-read print. I'm wondering about their parents, Joshua A. and Nancy J. -- you had claimed photo requests on them, and now the requests are "open." They were all supposed to be in same plot - Were you not able to find their names on stone?

Do you happen to know who I could contact re: cemetery records of burials at that cemetery? After extensive research, I believe Thomas J. is buried at Corinth National Cemetery, and since soldiers killed in action were normally buried on or near battlefield, that his parents had gravestone engraved in his memory.

Thank you.
Linda Jackson
