Bio and Links
Bio Photo (Desperately hoping someone, anyone, will create a new website called FIND AN OBIT. This is not the place for adding someone who passed away yesterday especially when often there's no cemetery or disposition even mentioned. Many times family would like to add their own loved ones & resent having to wait for a transfer, if they even receive one. Hats off to those Find A Gravers who dig out the old obituaries & add them to memorials. That's what makes this site so helpful for genealogy purposes. Adding this week's death total is just morbid & ghoulish, especially when three people add the same person on the same day. Who was first? Numbers shouldn't be the goal here! Just my opinion)

My interests are genealogy & history, especially military history~God Bless our veterans & active duty servicemen & women!

I really enjoy visiting cemeteries searching for ancestors & always try to take some other grave photos while there. It's fascinating to read some of the older inscriptions & see the style & design that went into the older monuments.

Find A Grave is the best site on the web & has helped me a lot. It's enabled me to find family members who moved away years ago & some that I thought I'd never find.

We've all lost loved ones, wonderful people we'll never forget. This site gives us an opportunity to remember them with photographs, obituaries, family stories & monument photos. It's always a great feeling when someone finds a family member that they'd been unable to locate. I'm sure that's what makes this site so very popular!

I'm always happy to transfer family members or make corrections or additions! I'll gladly remove a memorial, also, if requested. Feel free to use any of the memorial photos I've posted for your family tree,, etc.!

RE: John and Stella Mondell
Thank you so much, Dee. It means a lot to me that you transferred John and Stella to me. I will actually be adding my grandmother in the next few days since I found out you can add cremations as well.

RE: Margaret J Long, Templeville MD, 43162255
Hello again, Dee! Thank you for your previous response regarding your memorial for Margaret J Long in Templeville. I did find her memorial on my return trip, and have created a memorial for her daughter, which I have linked. I would greatly appreciate a transfer of Margaret Long's memorial to my account, as she is my 2nd Great Grandmother. Thanks for all of your hard work here at findagrave!!! Margaret Long's memorial number: 43162255

You nicely added a photo of my gr gr uncle's tombstone (133147972)in Oak Lawn Cemetery, Eastpoint, MD. I wondered if you get back to the cemetery you could snap one of his wife Mary Mears Burgan's tombstone and of her mother Hester Mears' tombstone. I'm having trouble with Mary's death date. I was given one by family and now am doubting the year. A photo would definitely help. Thank you for your assistance. Gale

William T Wright, Oaklawn Cemetery
Hello Dee,
It's great to finally see some Oaklawn Cemetery people in Find a Grave.
I'm afraid I have to disagree with the information you have on William T Wright. He was in the Union Army. I'm not sure which regiment or company, but he was supposed to have been at the Battle of Gettysburg.My mother is his granddaughter. Because her mother died when the 4 children were young, William helped while the father worked. My mother spoke quite frequently about him always wearing his blue cap with the crossed rifles on top, meaning he was in the infantry.
I've been researching him quit a while, and there were over 1200 William Wrights in the Union Army. About a third were black and many died, while he lived to a good age.But it is still difficult to find THE one.

RE: Web sites
Thanks Dee. There are a couple we have found to translate German if you want me to send you their contact them. I've been working with a cousin I met thru ancestry - her grandmother and mine were sisters! She lives in Pikesville. If you somehow give me your me your email I'll send them to you. Only ended up with 4 inches of snow but they had already closed all the schools- lol

Oh forgot to ask you if you have favorite sites for searching other than ancestry. I'm looking for info from Germany and Russia.
