Bio and Links
Bio Photo As my Findagrave Profile name suggests, I am one of the many people to be diagnosed with Autism (Aspergers, to be specific). As one diagnosed with this syndrome, one of my characteristics is that I focus my attention around specific subjects. Most people with Autism or Aspergers may focus thier attention on dogs or subway routes. During my early high school years, I was fixated with graves after I stumbled across Findagrave. I would usually travel to cemeteries within my neck of the woods (Pennsylvania's Main Line), or whenever I was on vacation. Eventually, I felt that my fixation with cemeteries became morbid, so I slowly shifted my attention onto another subject: the US Presidents. To this day, I can still recite (1) the names of the Presidents of the United States in chronological order from George Washington to Barrack Obama, (2) the years they served in office, and (3) thier Vice Presidents. I also have an odd interest in visting State Capitol Buildings. Every once in a while, however, I would enjoy roaming around a cemetery (mainly if a President was buried in the cemetery). In October 2008, I decided to create my own Findagrave account, so here I am =)

DISCLAIMER: As of January 1, 2013, I'm taking a year off (& possibly a little longer) to spend some time away from FAG so I can focus more on my own personal life. I'll be back sometime in (or after) 2014, but right now I just need to focus on my own personal life -- meaning, until then, I do not wish to get any personal e-mails asking to fulfill FAG requests.

Thank you for your quickness in taking the pictures of my extended family. It is truly appreciated.

I was impressed with you bio. I love going to the cemetery to take pictures to help other researcher.

I saw where you gave other people permission to use your pictures so I too posted them on my family tree. I also gave you credit for taking them.

Bless you,
Sharon

Well, that'll teach me to proofread. I intend to fulfill a request this weekend, not inspire one (hopefully!)

Thank you!
Thank you so very much for taking the picture of the plaque for James F Evans! Having a year of birth helps me know this might be my grand-uncle. You have inspired me to inspire a local request this weekend, in the hopes of helping someone like you helped me. I sincerely appreciate it!
