Bio and Links
Bio Photo I enjoy taking the photos, so don't hesitate to transfer them for your own use. I don't need credit for the photo. I am also happy to transfer maintenance on any of the memorials I have done.
I live in Michigan so I have a few months where I can't get out and get photos. I will get to the many requests as soon as the weather gets nice again.

RE: Radtke links
I usually work on the research part of genealogy during the winter when Hoyt Library is open on Sundays. The Eddy genealogy room is a great place to while away the afternoo. This year I did not start until February.

I think taking pictures of graves is a fun hobby. As kids, Dad took us to the mausoleum ever time we came to Saginaw. I am currently working on book of headstone picture, grave locations and a picture of the person.

Let me know if you ever need a copy of an obituary from the Saginaw Public Library's Index.

Radtke links
Hi Helen,
This is cousin Lynn, from MI.

I see you manage both William A. Radtke and his father, August Ferdinand Radtke ID 95965252. Would you please link William to his father?

If you remember our previous contact, I am a great granddaughter of William's sister, Anna Marie Thompson, nee Radtke.

I have requested the person managing her memorial to either transfer it to me or link Anna with her father.

I am just getting started in adding memorials on Find A Grave and checking out the all ready added ones. Must say this is wonderfully addicting. Thank you.

Aaron P. Cook
Helen, Thank You so much for taking the photo's of Aaron P. Cook and his family. I have been searching for him for about 5 years now. I knew they were in Michigan and around Clare County as that is where my great grandparents got married and my grandfather was born. I have now been able to find him and his father on Census records in Michigan and New York. Thank you again. I live in Florida now but was born and raised in New York so it would be hard to travel up there.

RE: Francis & Lloyd Russell
Thanks for the transfer of the Russell memorials that you created. I added bio information for the third child on the Find A Grave memorial 97805675 for their mother Julia Breimayer Russell.

RE: Darwin Godfrey

Thanks very much for taking the time to photograph Darwin Godfrey's gravestone. It's a long way to Michigan from where I live and unlikely that I would have the chance to take the picture myself.

Godfrey's wife Rachel died well after him (1926) and had moved away from Osceola County after his death. I don't think she remarried. She's probably buried somewhere else. Another mystery...

You are doing a very nice community service in volunteering to take Findagrave photos. I hope I can pay the favor forward when I return from overseas.

Thanks again for the photo.
