Bio and Links
For over 45 years I have worked on my family histories. Sometimes, as a "get-away" from my own research and frustrations I walk through a cemetery and record my own census of readable tombstones. I record the dates and inscriptions just as they are engraved on the memorial.
So, what I have recorded is usually my own work efforts and research.

Memorials are created with respect and honor and are not intended to offend.

Should you have additions/corrections to my entries or if you would like your family member or friend transferred to your care, please let me know--
If the memorial is not my own relative or close friend, I consider all requests for memorial transfers. I'm not going to quibble over the ancestry and how many times removed you are from the person in the memorial. I'm happy to transfer memorials. Likewise, I appreciate similar considerations.

(And - I'm not in a numbers race to see how fast I can post obituaries or how many memorials I can post)

I wish you success as you look for those who have gone before.

BY THE WAY I find my personal pictures- many I personally took -- lifted and reposted on other sights without my permission. It does anger me when I see my pictures reposted elsewhere without acknowledging the source.
You can use pictures I take in your online family trees by making a connective link to the original on FindAGrave, and/or including credit to FindAGrave member SM #46597451.
None of my personal pictures may be sold and/or exchanged for any type of payment.
