Bio Photo The Key To Any Puzzle Is Laying Down The First Piece...... ~Lorie

That is my philosophy when it comes to my FAG contributions.

In my travels, I have seen many different methods, processes and preferences among the FAG members and everyone is entitled to the way they do things - as long as it is historically sound. I am a 30 year data integrity nut and also a family history freak. Find a Grave is my NIRVANA!!!
Personally, I love data mining and enjoy scouring large (I mean LARGE) lists of cemetery & burial records, scouring and scrubbing, and then posting. I have a low tolerance for onesy-twosy memorial creations simply because there are so many of them out there and I ain't gettin' any younger.

Like so many other folks, I came to FAG looking for my family members and thanx to the generosity of others, I was able to locate alot of family. That is where my philosophy and my methods come from when I create memorials. If I can give someone at least a starting point on their family, then I have done good. To those folks who dig and dig to find every tidbit of information I applaud you for it that's just not my cup of tea.

So, remember, everyone has their own way of contributing to this great site and should never be made to feel inferior because they don't do it the same way you do. As long as it's right

If you have a correction or find a duplicate, let me know(and please be patient for results).
If you want to "own" it, just ask (include all numbers)
And if you think that I haven't added enough information byte me

The Mikado, et al.

You transferred this when I realized he wasn't a Zielinski, as per his death record, and wanted to find out who he was.

Thought you'd appreciate this...I found his photo and that's my grandfather sitting on his lap!

Family friend, yes, but no Zee. ha

Thanks again for the transfer, back when!

Charles Monroe Williams @ Congressional Cemetery
I was amazed to find an entry for my great uncle, who died at the age of 3 in Washington, DC. Can you share where you found this information? You gave cause of death, so I suspect there must be a death certificate that I've had no luck in finding. Charles died of meningitis within a year of my grandmother's birth and I have a picture of the two of them as baby/toddler together.

Thank you!

Elizabeth Kearns
I see you originally created the Find A Grave memorial for Elizabeth Kearns #97036777. I have a death record that states she was born Dec. 17, 1864, lived 63 years, 8 months & 9 days, died Aug. 26, 1928, and was buried in Beeton. I am interested in where you got the 1865 and 1923 from? Also, her husband, William Kearns, could be buried there. The only information I have on him is via others on According to them he was born in 1846, and died before 1901. You have a William Kearns #97036790 with an unknown birthdate who died in 1898. The Find A Grave memorial numbers are close together, and the dates fit. Are Elizabeth and William on the same headstone? I would appreciate any information you can give me. Thanks for all your efforts!

Many thanks!
Boy, are you generous! I'm also obsessive about researching my family. Continuously going sideways because so much is discoverable that way, as you also must know.
My siblings actually have bribed me to zip it on my family discoveries, since I have talked of the new ones for decades.
So I very much appreciate your work.

And incidentally, I would never tell you to just byte me! I would give you a big high five instead.

Specifically, because of you and the copy I have of an ancestor's well annotated photo album from 1900-1930s, I am making breakthroughs! She hadn't included surnames, but there are some delightfully salient clues such as "sisters?" or "all alone" or a cut out within the album. I just may have figured out the "sisters?" one, all because of you!
