Bio and Links
Bio Photo In my youth, I lived in a small town in northern Indiana. One of the places we played was in the local cemetery. I become fascinated with the headstones and wondered what the people under the stone were like.
As a retired phone man, I put that fascination and my love of photography to work.
I'm not into the numbers game. I take time and try to find some facts on the person I'm writing about. Feel free to use my photos and my writings if it helps you find your past, as long as its not for profit. If I can help you in any way, drop me a line. Additions and corrections are welcome.
I'm sorry, I don't work well with rude or pushy people. If you don't receive an answer to your request right away, think about it, and try again.

Carol Yocum Kipfer
Mike, As I was adding family links to Carol's memorial, I noticed that her mother Jennie was your aunt. Would you like to manage Carol's memorial too?

Stanley Wojcik, #97099637
Hello, I enjoy all the work you have done on Find A Grave. One small detail, however, if you add photos pull down the menu for the type of photo. That way the Portraits will stay above the grave photos.
Stanley's portrait that you added is now on the second page after I added 2 grave photos. You may want to go back and change it.
Thanks for all you have done!

Mike, the photos you posted of the flowering tree need to be deleted and re posted as "OTHER". Their posted as grave. All of the memorial pages show up as having grave photos. Thanks

Goepfrich transfer
Mike, would you please transfer ownership of Mary T. Goepfrich #83166118? Her husband is Raymond A. Goepfrich #51364683. The Goepfrich married into my Hungarian family line and I have been researching them for many years and have most of their families linked. Thank you very much, Nadine
