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."

Reread my msg. to you yesterday and noticed I errored on the 1920, 30 and 40 census. The household Head of course is Howard D., not Ralph. Ralph was the first child. Sorry.

If you would connect spouces and locations to your memorials, we would be happy to remove our memorials. You need to post all the information that is available - even copy from ours - and there would no be an need for duplicates.
