Bio and Links
I am just trying to help others find their ancestor's final resting place in hopes that someone will help me find all of mine.

I am currently working to photograph the stones in Portland Cemetery, Portland, Michigan. Please contact me if you want to use my photos.

I will do photo requests for nearby cemeteries if you can provide a lot number.

If I have created a memorial for your ancestor I will gladly transfer management.

Laurel - Thanks for trying to locate two of my Hammontree relatives in the Portland Cemetery. George must not have a headstone. It turns out that John is actually buried in the Sumner Cemetery, so the Find-a-Grave record for John in the Portland Cemetery in incorrect. I've sent an e-mail asking for a correction on that one. So sorry for the goose chase on the John request. And thanks again for the effort all around!!

I want to thank you for taking the time in trying to find my GG Grandmother's tombstone in the Portland, MI cemetery.

I took the info from a memorial posted before. I was hoping to have a picture of her stone.

Again, many thanks!

Laurel! I just noticed the memorial flower you left that said there was no marker found on the grave (blushing as it's only been almost 2 years)

Thank you for your efforts to find my 2nd great-grandfather. I will add the info to his bio.

Hi Laurel, thanks for offering to transfer these records. The Courtnays are more shirttail relatives for me than you, so I'm comfortable leaving these records in your good care. Thanks for all you do to enhance Portland cemetery records. Best wishes, Linda

I will transfer mine to you, then you can do the edits and delete yours. Often spellings vary, so you may want to do a partial name search when checking. I am presently working on a cemetery having to search in several ways to make sure I do not create a duplicate. It is often the problem with all the mistakes in spelling in the transcription, not the person who has created the memorial.
