Bio and Links
Bio Photo I am retired in Boise, Idaho. I have loved spending time in cemeteries since I was a little girl. Helping people by exploring cemeteries and photographing grave markers for them is a dream retirement activity for me.

I walk the rows taking random photos when I am in a cemetery, and add the photos or the entire memorial to Findagrave if they are not in. I particularly concentrate on veterans (and their spouses), infants and children. I feel the veterans have earned the right to go to the front of the line. And I feel that since the babies and the children got so little on earth, at least I can give them some electronic "life".

I am always happy to add any information to a memorial I manage. Just send it. I am also delighted to add obituaries; just make sure that I have the correct attribution to add so the paper's copyright is respected.

If you find any errors of fact, date, relationship, or spelling on any of my memorials, please let me know. As a former professional proofreader, I KNOW that no one is perfect all the time, including me. I will fix it.

I will transfer management of memorials in line with the Findagrave guidelines, which specify relatives in a direct line. Specifically, they say: "Transfer requests should be for direct relatives within four generations. This would be your siblings, parents, grandparents, great-grandparents, children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren. Any non-direct relatives (aunts, uncles, cousins, etc) are not required to be transferred." Please do not ask.

Helvey, Charles 59540888
I was hoping you could tell me more about your connections for this individual. The information that I have does not match and I'm trying to figure out which connections are correct.
I show Charles Helvey's mother as Mattie McFadden Hale Helvey which seems to match up through the 1930 ID census and the ID death index....unless this is not Charles Wallace Winifred Helvey?

Any help you could give me is appreciated.

Thank you
I appreciate you taking the time to photograph and post to Lucille McGregor's memorial. We're tracking down her husbands death certificate to check his location again.

Thanks again!
The information below further validated what family genealogies had documented as truth.

I went through the cemetery records of Albany Menands to further substantiate that no James Arnold had died early and was buried in the cemetery.

I did a search for other James Arnold Born New York 1842 and felt more assured that the family genealogy was correct.

Do hope all is well with you and thanks again for checking and being careful!
