I discovered Find A Grave while searching for the grave of my grandfather's brother. This simple little search sent me on a mission to search for my ancestors and get some of my family history on Find A Grave. Once I got hooked on genealogy, I decided I could help others by adding names to the site so that sent me onto my new "hobby" - photographing graves, and now I am totally addicted. I hope my work on Find A Grave will help others in their search or allow them to "visit" a loved one's grave. |
I'm not one of those people who think they give a prize for managing the most memorials. If you have any connection to someone that I have created a memorial for, I will gladly transfer it, as long as they are not in my tree.
The Bismarck Tribune did a very nice article on my cemetery project a while back. Click Here to view the article.
In April 2016 they did another article. Click Here to view the article.
I have set up a Tribalpages family tree. Click on the link below to view it.
If I have taken a photograph of your ancestor's tombstone and it is of poor quality (shadows/overgrown with grass/hard to read/etc), please let me know and I will see what I can do about taking a better one. It is hard to take good photographs of all the markers when I am at a cemetery as the angle of the sun is often poor the stones don't photograph well.
If I have helped you in your search, please return the favor and "pay it forward" and do your part to help out someone else.

Thank you so much for the correction. I must have listed the cemetery from "A graveside service, " as it had it listed as Saint Peters & Paul, but I corrected it to Saints Peter & Paul. I'm glad you had my back on this one.

Thanks for going the extra mile.

Brian, Thanks so much for the picture of the grave marker for Lynne Fleck, you took a very nice photo. I appreciate your service so much as I am unable to drive and take photos myself. It used to be a fun thing but as we age it is more difficult. So thanks again.

That would be nice, but don't feel pressured to do it if you are busy. Either way I appreciate your kindness. Thank you
