Bio and Links
Bio Photo I'm a native of Longmont, CO. I'm been interested in genealogy for almost 50 years but I did take time off to raise a family. Research is much easier now then it was 30 years ago. The Denver Library and Federal Archives are not far away and that has been a help.

When I started taking photos my husband didn't come but after a visit to a cemetery that was on a one lane road on the side of a mountain he was hooked. The markers were very old and very interesting, so now he willing walks around a cemetery with me as we locate the markers that were requested. He trims the grass and pulls the weeds around the markers to be sure I get a good photo. We also stop and visit relatives and friends and look at interesting markers. The two remarks on markers I have really liked are "This is the only stone she left unturned." and "I told you I was sick."

You have my permission to use headstone photos that I have posted for your genealogy record.

RE: John Edward Getzendaner
B. J.,

Thank you so much for the photo. I definitely want it on the site. At least we can see the wife's burial spot and know where he is buried. I guess that happens more than we realize: Whoever goes last, no one places a marker on their grave. Perhaps we all should make those arrangements while we are still living.

Thanks again, Linda

Hi BJ~
So sorry that it has taken me so long to answer your email. I haven't been on find a grave recently.

Do you go to other cemeteries around Colorado? I'm looking for the Woodland Park Cemetery.

RE: Leo Schey
Thanks so much for the photo. Leo was a woman and a cousin of my father's. Leo is an unusual name for a woman, I know. The children in that part of the family all had unique names. I will see about getting the stone fixed, and I thank you so much for the information and the picture. Jane Cockayne Weaver.
