Bio and Links
Bio Photo Genealogy is a passion of mine from when I was very young. My grandmother told me wonderful stories about our families and I have been doing family history for over 30 years. I have traveled all over the world photographing family graves and writing books on my different families. I need another 25 years to finish everything I have started!

Robert Wendal Earle
Dear Karen Thank You for your contributions to find a grave. Thhis is such a wonderful site. I was wondering however if you could make a correction for me, Robert Wendal Earle B. 22 July 1917 D. 5 Feb. 2013 Is Actually ROBERT WILLIAM EARLE. I am the mother of his great grand children Anthony and Nicholas Zanfardino and the ex-wife of his Grandson Robert Zanfardino. I can't wait to share this with his daughter Leslie Besic but I would like to share it with her with her fathers correct name. My sister is a contributor for find a grave her name is Barbara Shilling she over seas our parents page William H.Goodwin and Ann B. Goodwin. Again Thank You for all you do.

RE: Rose Levenson
Thank you! What is the title of the book? Also, I noted you didn't have her grave. According to this index:, she is buried at Oak Woods Cemetery, plot W 04 17, Chicago, IL. I hope I can get a photo of the tombstone.

RE: Clarence Smith
I have been going through Montlawn row by row adding memorials and photos. If I see something that doesn't look right, I pass it along! No problem at all.

My pace has picked up, the rate I'm going, I'll have the cemetery done by around April or May!

RE: Hattie Schoonover
I will transfer her to you but it has been so long I don't remember her memorial number. Please go to the memorial you want and using the edit button ask for transfer. I will send her along.

Re: Rose Levenson
I would like to know where you found the photo of Rose Levenson. Her widower married Kate Lubin in 1904 and Kate raised Rose's children with her own children. I just found that Rose's maiden name was Lubin and I now suspect she was Kate's sister. I've been researching the Lubin family for my cousins.

Ms. Montagu is buried next to William Willard Crocker in Cypress Lawn Cemetery, Colma, San Mateo County, California. I took a photo today and uploaded it.
