Bio and Links
Bio Photo My journey through my family history began as a project in 7th grade. At that point I had some names, and some locations. Through the years I have come to know so much more about these people that allowed me to be here today, and I'm passing those bits of information on to my own children.

When I'm not traipsing through cemeteries taking pictures or looking for my ancestors, I am an elementary school administrator. One of my favorite field trips is one where we take the 2nd graders to a local cemetery to find the "famous" people we've learned about in Fort Collins history. For many of the students, it is their first trip to a cemetery.

This is all about connecting families, and documenting history for future generations. If you have information you'd like me to add to a memorial, just let me know. If you'd like to take over management of any of the people I'm not related to, I'd be glad to transfer management over to you.

**If you notice that some of my pictures are sideways or upside down, I'm guessing you're viewing them on an Apple product. I sometimes will use my iPhone if I don't have my camera with me, and for some reason it rotates pictures even if I rotate and save them correctly.

First off; good job on all of your Find A Grave work. I just made a memorial for Winston's father. Could you link Winston Kyle Spiher 121075432 to his parents?

Thank you for posting my G-Grandfather Theodore Wildenauer.
I attached a photo of his portrait broach I inherited from his only child, my Grandmother (Grace C Wildenauer).

Thanks for updating her name, I had fun for a few hours last night finding out who she was. Her husband Robert was possible cousin to my Great great grandfather Benjamin Brothers. Benjamin moved to Kimball County Nebraska in 1887, prior to that he had lived in 2 counties in Illinois that Robert also lived in. I am sure they are kin, just dont know how close.

Ida Harding
Tried to send additional edit info but now there's a captcha attached and it wouldn't let me. Just wanted to let you know that Ida was listed with her family in the 1860 census of Delaware, pike, pa, but was erroneously listed as Isaac at two years of age.
