|Bio and Links|
I've had a passion for genealogy for over 30 years. A passion that began with my grandmother. She passed on a wealth of information to me about her family - and it fascinated me. I research near daily and am proud to say that I have researched more than 41,000 people who connect to my family in some way, shape, or form. |
As a Find A Grave member, I am not a collector of names/graves. I enter names for those I have a genealogical connection (family, distant family, and VERY distant family members), when I visit a cemetery, or if I come by a particularly obituary that touches my heart. From time to time I may transcribe a cemetery, but generally those are upon request only.
I am a firm believer that how we treat those who died before us speaks volumes for how we treat those that are still living.
I willingly will transfer memorials to other if: a) they are within FAG guidelines (4 generation rule) or b) is a reasonable reason (good friend, cousin, in-law, etc). I am very reasonable - just ask. I will not transfer if you are researching a group (veterans for example) in a cemetery. There needs to be some sort of connection to you family or friend wise.
~Happy Grave Finding

A super big THANK YOU!!! for finding Chris's grave. I knew that eventually someone would come across him, as all I knew was that he died in Hopkins. You have made my day!

|James Bozeman||Calderara Family|
Thank you so much for the transfers.
|James Bozeman||Calderara Family|
Would you be willing to transfer the memorials for Jason Calderara and his young family to me? His mother, Janice, is a close, dear friend of mine, and I would love to manage these memorials for her. Thank you very much for creating them.
Their memorials are - 167430594, 167431010, 167440754, and 167440832.
May I ask if you are related to the Thurber family?

|Alice & Franklyn Vosburg||Aron Lindholm|
While revisiting some research on my Larson forebears, I came across the name of Aron Lindholm in an ebook, "Swedes in Michigan." It should come up with a simple search for his name. You probably know this already, but just in case...
|Vaughan Mavir||Mary June West|
Hi thanks for your enquiry,
I only recently took over management of this memorial as the creator IT Matters was having to transfer over her memorials due to personal reasons and she didn't want the care just to be handed over to Find A Grave admin, I have no connection other than the above so am pleased that someone connected to the family can take over her care
|Janine Pellman Seis||Elmer Aro|
Hello. Thank you for pointing out that Elmer Aro has been put on their twice. The problem is he has a stone in two different cemeteries. I don't know which cemetery he is buried in. I do know some Aro people who I think are related to him. I will try to find out. I hate to delete mine since Oscar Sandstrom has died and his daughter-in-law is trying to take over. This is about the 4th time I have visited this issue. I will try to resolve it. Janine

You are so very welcome!
|Robert Dogan||RE: Col David H. Johnson|
I'm glad I could help.
I wanted to fill all the request I had claimed before the snow moved in. If the snowfall is as expected it will be a while before I'll be able to take photos at Arlington National Cemetery.
