Bio and Links
Bio Photo In April of 2010, I was made aware of Find A Grave in conjunction with the genealogical research I had recently started. I had found my great-great grandmother's grave marker posted on another site, but not her husband's. I contacted one of the site admins, who posted a request on Find A Grave and, voila!, a volunteer went out to the cemetery and took a picture! Following that, I decided to do the same for others, and I signed up to be a photo volunteer.

Shortly thereafter, we visited that cemetery in Illinois where my great-great grandparents were buried. It's about four hours away, and made a fun day trip on Memorial Day! While in the area, we visited two other cemeteries where other relatives were buried.

Family names I am researching are: Manning, Gauger, Sensenich, Hedegger, and Jurk. Hedegger and Jurk are in Germany.


I enjoy fulfilling photo requests, and spend a lot of time trying to get good pictures. However, I don't fulfill photo requests that are put into the "Notes" section of someone else's memorial (that of a spouse, for example). My reason for this isn't because I want to "rack up numbers". It is because using that method to try to get photos not only circumvents Find-a-Grave rules, but makes more work for the photo volunteer, as well as increasing the chance your request will get missed. There needs to be a separate photo request submitted for each memorial for which you want a photo.

RE: Hitesville
I think that's all. Hitesville is as complete as it can get. I'll just be doing family connections from now. Thank you so much for your many quality contributions!

You have 3 photos at Maries site and I don't know why. They have nothing to do about Maria. Please delete them. Thanks

OK, Thanks! There's certainly no rush. I appreciate all you've done already. I will be working on some other projects for awhile as my Hitesville leads have dwindled.

RE: Hitesville photo
By the way, my mother and I have recently added over 100 names to Find A Grave Hitesville. They are old interments that you may have photographed before there were memorial pages.

Hitesville, Caroline Eltjes
Hi again... You have an excellent headstone photo attached to her husband Walter E, would you like to attach it to Caroline? I have entered a request.

The photo you posted is much better than the one I suggested. Thanks so much Al!

RE: Feckers at Hitesville, IA
I was speaking of a photo you already have posted (Henry's stone happens to be in the photo of his parents stone) I could copy it to his memorial if you don't have it available...or just leave up my request a's definitely not a priority, I've just been doing some add/links into Find A Grave for Hitesville. Thank you
