I want to state clearly that anyone is free to use the photos that I take for any nonprofit purpose.|
I enjoy genealogy. I consider myself fairly new at it. I was introduced in 2008 by a phone call, out of the blue, from a cousin I didn't know I had. She was researching our family and found me. We share a great grandfather. I was intrigued, and have been researching my family ever since. I find that I can spend all my time researching. There is no end to the information I want to know.
I research online. I was a computer person (I make my living as an author of computer books), before I started genealogy research. I had seen Find a Grave, but was focused elsewhere and didn't pay attention. Recently (May 2010), I stopped and really looked at Find A Grave. When I realized what it was, I became a fan. I had been meaning to photo a family grave at the local cemetery, so I took some photo requests with me. I discovered I enjoyed being in the cemetery. It is lovely and peaceful. The headstones are interesting. And my body appreciates moving more, rather than sitting in front of the computer all day. So, I created pages from photos I took at the local cemetery, but moved away before could photo the entire cemetery.
I enjoy several different aspects of this research. I enjoy the puzzle, of course. I enjoy sharing information. To me, an important part of the research is making it available to help others with their research. I also enjoy the community of genealogy, cousins, and Find A Grave.
I am quite serious about accuracy. I only enter facts that I am very sure about. If anyone finds errors, let me know, but be prepared to say why you believe my entry is in error. Also, I love to add information if someone offers good data. And, I have no problem with transferring a page to someone who is more closely related to the person, as long as that person appears to keep their memorials accurate and updated.
I also maintain a website providing my Russell family research at the URL below.

Thank you for your efforts, I live in Michigan, so it would be difficult to take the picture.
