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.

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?

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!
