Bio and Links
Bio Photo I have been interested in family history for over 45 years and doing genealogical research and documentation since 2001. I live in Lane County, Oregon. Contact me if I can be of help in this geographic area. I am willing to pull obituraries or other research.

One of my maternal great grandmothers lived to be 106 years old and was a great historian. I can remember as a child sitting next to her rocking chair listening to stories about her life or an historical event that she witnessed. She passed away in 1976 without a hint of dementia. In 1969 my mother interviewed her over a two day period and she captured it all on the old reel to reel tapes. I took the tapes to a sound studio and had them transferred to CD. What a family treasure!

I have been blessed by so many who have helped me in my quest to discover more about my family. Joining Find A Grave as a photo volunteer is one way of giving back to the genealogical community for the blessings that I have received.

Hello, I am a relative of Milburn and Alma Crites. I was wondering if I may have permission to use their gravestone photos on my private family tree?
Thank you very much!

Thank you for the transfer of both Longfellows at Fir Grove. It was very thoughtful of you. (My great grandmother lived to be 103 1/2 & I too have wonderful memories of her tales of wagon trains across Indian territory. We were/are blessed!)

RE: Pamela Monsive
You are very welcome. I'm retired and you provided the location is the reason I'm quick.

By the way, Pamela's grave is just to the left of the little green sign in the cemetery photo. That area going almost to the tree is an area for babies and very young children.
