I am retired and enjoy working on genealogy as a hobby. I have a masters degree from the University of Oklahoma and I'm using my research skills to hunt down my ancestors. www.findagrave.com is a terrific web site. My ancestors include but are not limited to: Allison, Campbell, Morris, Johnson, Holdsworth, Baird, Kirkpatrick, Phillippi, Worley, Sweeney, Vaught, Watson, Dale, Wheeler, Hoyt, Newman
I make an effort to connect husbands, wives and families using obituaries and census records.
As many of you know, I have spent hours taking photos in the Rose Hill Burial Park in Oklahoma City in order to create memorials. I also do research in the Oklahoma Historical Society Library for some of my memorials.

Use the "Suggest a Correction" feature on the appropriate memorial to submit information or any requests. I follow the Find-A-Grave guidelines regarding the transfer of memorials. Any transfer requests should only be for direct relatives within four generations. This would be siblings, parents, grandparents, great-grandparents, children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren.
My photos may be used in your family trees. They are not to be used in cemetery books/CDs that are to be sold.
request to transfer #113828415 Hi, Janet. Would you please transfer to me Memorial #113828415. Robert Armstrong is my great-great-grandfather and I have visited his marker in Niles, Ohio many times, and written a full bio of his life and times, both in Ireland and in the U.S. I intend to link this memorial to more of his children and grand-children, who are in my direct line. Thank you for your work in getting this started. I look forward to hearing from you. Many thanks, Bill Armstrong
