|Bio and Links|
I have now been back in Colorado for a couple of years but I am still dreaming of waterways, bridges, moss covered trees, and yes the rain. I don't know if I will ever get use to the snow but I am told we need the snow for the water levels during the summer. I am unsure of the numbers but I believe rain works better and it doesn't require a shovel. |
I have been lucky enough to connect with family and friends. While in Oregon I had some great Colorado volunteers that helped me with my family's stones and have had the pleasure of meeting and working with them in Colorado and meeting new ones along the way.
I have had quite a couple of years, babies born; friends & family that have passed; reconnected with friends from high school; getting to know my granddaughter, and I have had two surgeries.
I have been working a number of cemeteries trying to help family find family and over the last three years have heard some of the saddest and happiest stories from family that were so happy I helped them locate a missing loved one. I still get surprised when someone mentions the number of memorials I have loaded or the number of photo requests I have completed. I do this for you and the numbers mean nothing. If I was somehow able to help one of you during the day find an aunt, uncle, sibling, grandparent, parent, or childhood friend – it is you that has given me a reason to smile that day and continue on with what I do.
Also, I believe in transferring photos to family no matter how many generations removed. I believe the four generation rule is used for hoarders that are interested in numbers and just want to keep your family. One of my pet peeves is people taking over or starting memorials that do not know how or have any intention of maintaining the site. I feel the family belongs to the family but should be with a family member that is going to insure that links and edits are going to be taken care of in a timely manner.
I do not transfer to non family – I volunteer my time for the family and that is where I want them to end up. I am impressed and grateful that there are people who take time to work on groups and any editing you require or photos you need – I am your girl but NO I don't transfer to non family.

Thanks so much for taking the time to get this photo, we really appreciate it. Hope you have a great week!
|Ginna Sanders||Fulwider Nesselrode Photos|
I want to personally thank you for the beautiful photos you took of the Newton Fulwider Family Headstone in Denver. I found a daughter listed that I didn't know existed because of your excellent photos. I also was able to find the mother (grandmother) Cynthia Cooper Garberich Reeve Neselrode headstone, which was visible in one of the images. I had looked for this woman's death for nearly 4 decades. Little did I know she had married the widower who was the father-in-law of a deceased daughter. This helped me to close the loop which began when looking for this Garberich line. Cynthia is a great great grandmother. You've done me an excellent service.

Thank you for filling my photo request for Louis Straub 137155215 and creating memorials for Rose, Patrick, and Anne. The great headstone photos are appreciated very much. You helped me fill in a few missing blanks on my Straub family tree :)
I would like to use the photos on my family tree on Ancestry.com. Given your permission, I will post them crediting you as the photographer. Please let me know if this is okay.

|Penne Magnusson Cartright Hannum||Quinlan's|
You claimed to take a picture of Catherine - thank you so much for doing that. Would it be an bother for you to take pictures of other Quinlan's in that cemetery and if there are headstones, email them to me. We are trying to find other family members of the Quinlan family, and headstones will help us as we have not been able to discover them. If you aren't able to do that, then that is ok. Thank you for helping us out.
