Bio and Links
Bio Photo "When you remember me, it means that you have carried something of who I am with you, that I have left some mark of who I am in who you are. It means that even after I die, you can still see my face and hear my voice and speak to me in your heart." Fredrick Beekner


First of all, I would like to thank the many volunteers that give freely of their time, knowledge, and efforts on behalf of people searching for answers and hoping to breathe life back into their ancestors, walking cemeteries, taking photos, editing photos uploading and creating memorials.

Find a Grave is kept up by a United community of genealogists, historians, (beginners and experts) all of which of course, are VOLUNTEERS. We do not get paid for what we do here.

Creating memorials and fulfilling photo requests is a labor of love for me. If you appreciate something I've added, please pay it forward! If you receive "freely", give "freely"

I firmly believe that our ancestors deserve more than just dates and a cold hard stone on their memorials. It is because of that I try to add as much information as is available to me.

Please click the "Edit" tab on the individual memorial, then the "Suggest A Correction" link on the specific memorial you would like me to update or transfer. PLEASE DO NOT SEND CORRECTIONS AS PUBLIC MESSAGES

If I SUGGEST A CORRECTION to you, please copy and paste the info into the bio and add dates and places in the appropriate fields so they can help others locate the memorial. Maiden names and links to parents are also helpful. If you want to see my sources please just ask. You can also check the memorial, as over the last three years I have been trying to give credit to those that submit valid info in the bio of the memorial.

I spend a lot of time traveling, photographing, editing and posting my photos because I love doing it. It also gives me a lot of satisfaction if I can help others find their family. I do not mind if you use the photos for PERSONAL use.

I do not transfer to requesters who are rude/demanding, have no profile or who are collectors -- however,I'll always update and link memorials within a day or two or as time allows.
Transfer requests should be requested on the "edit" tab. Include your relationship, and your contributor name and number.

Keep in mind, those of us who list these memorials are only human, sometimes we make mistakes, let us know,and Never forget: We Are Volunteers. VOLUNTEERS. Our time and work are given freely.

The quote of Fredrick Beekner is borrowed from my cousin Mike Perkins memorial.

I am of the belief that no one is truly gone, until they are forgotten.

So with all this said, I will continue to visit cemeteries and take photos of graves, and hope someday to find more of my family,and maybe some of yours. Until then I will remain.... Calmly Searching..........

RE: Hazel Blevins
I suppose it would be too much to make a photo request of her cremains?

Just kidding. ;-)

RE: Hazel Blevins
I mentally regurgitate as I find new information. Sorry. My bad.

I think for a non-burial that you can indicate she was cremated and where her ashes were scattered as a reference to anyone looking at her memorial. If not, you might mention it in the notes or bio section.

Thank you. Didn't mean to be a pest. :-)

RE: Anna Hoffman
Thank you for your kindness in transferring my Aunt Lorraine. She was my last link to family pictures, stories, etc. on my father's side. Although Uncle Red and she moved from Pennsylvania to Colorado we stayed in closer touch the last few years through the mail. She identified so many family pictures and added her stories. It was a blessing for me to reconnect with her and I am very thankful for the time we shared.

RE: Cherie Gruber
Thank you so much for the reply. That will help a great deal and I'll go ahead and claim the request. It is unfortunate about the office staff there as it really is a beautiful cemetery. So many others in the area are more than willing to assist. Have a Happy Holiday! Take care, Betsi
