Bio and Links
Bio Photo I'm originally from Westfield, NJ, went to Marist College in Poughkeepsie, NY, married a sailor and was transplanted here in Va Beach. I've done genealogy for my family since 2006. My side includes Stec, Novak, Ciechoski, Maciorowski, Gasiorowski, Golda of NJ and PA. My husband's side is King, Hill, McDougal, Ellis, Mitchell, Bangs, Cross of MO and AR. I've traced him back to the Sutton's of Plymouth Colony & Brodnax's of Jamestown, VA. I hope my kids will be interested in this info when they're older!

I am Mommy to Nathaniel, 5, and Tristan, 3 and stepmom to Josh, 16 and Faith, 13. This site helps me make use of years of cemetery photos I've taken. Hopefully some will have meaning to others! I am intrigued especially by military markers because of my husband's career, and by those of children and young people whose lives were taken too soon.

If you want me to remove a memorial, please send me a polite message. I've gotten vulgar emails that aren't called for, but the thankful ones always outweigh them.

I am currently studying at TCC to become a funeral director and work at a local funeral home. Follow me here:

RE: Stec
Transferred both before I saw the Edit request for John. In the future please make it easier for transferors by using the Edit and Suggest a Correction functions to request a transfer. That way we don't have to go searching for the memorials or for your member number. It really is a help. Take care.

memorials to transfer

First, thank you for your excellent work on FindAGrave.

Would you be willing to transfer memorials 59733372 and 59733327 to me? Isaac Owen Hill was my second great uncle, and I have plenty of valid information about I.O. and his family. I could make a few family connections on FindAGrave. I visited the Hill crypt at Cedar Hill 10 days ago. Thank you. Ron Hill

Second request
The link I submitted to Vandalia Brothers memorial #59729716 as her husband, Memorial # 84691089 is incorrect. Please unlink my mistake.

Thank you,

RE: Smith photo fulfillment problems
Thank you for the Smith information/location. I had attempted to get the information on two of my previous visits there, but had no success. With the limited information that I had (from Find A Grave) and the number of "Smiths" buried at Woodlawn, I fully understand why it was more difficult to find. I truly appreciate your assistance. Everyone at Woodlawn has always been helpful and gone out of their way to accommodate my location requests. They have even provided me with maps each time that I have visited there (fulfilling FAQ photo requests).

HMS Nile Memorial in Bermuda
Hi Allison,

Thanks for your work on Find-A-Grave!
I hope you don't mind that I added to some of your memorials at the Royal Naval Cemetery in Bermuda. I was hoping to link all of the memorials for the HMS Nile.

Kind Regards,
Scooter T

Thank you so much for taking and posting this picture for me. It is nice to be able to add this photo without asking his parents for one. Should you need any pictures from around Harrisburg PA please let me know. I will be getting back out there as soon as the weather breaks again.

Thank you again

Thank you for taking the photo of the gravemarker for my cousin Lee Thomas Summerrow, #32463219.
I saw in your photo that his wife is buried next to him and I just added a memorial for her.
Please post the same gravemarker photo (it includes the marker for each of them) on her memorial:
