Bio and Links
Bio Photo I have been interested in genealogy for 30 years and have written over a dozen family history books, the first one being in 1979. The majority of our family vacations in the 1980s & 1990s revolved around cemeteries and visiting relatives. (Our kids ask why there are so many photos of them posing on headstones!)

When I started on FindAGrave, I kept busy adding our own family members. I knew where most were buried but some had to be searched for. In 2013, my husband and I took a trip through Montana, North Dakota and Minnesota and, in the process, found lots of folks to whom we were not related. I've created memorials for them adding as much additional information as I could find. We were able to fill dozens of photo requests; it felt good being able to pay forward all of the requests that volunteers have filled for us.

I endeavor to make memorials as complete as possible, including headstone photos, obits and links.

Most of our memorials are family members, but we'll happily consider transfers if you are more closely related.

You are welcome to use any of the photos we have posted but we would enjoy hearing from you if you do use any.

FindAGrave has added so much to my life. I love being a part of it!

p.s. I no longer add "burial unknown" memorials, and am working on the remaining 9. At this point, I have 123 cremations, 1 donated to science, 2 lost at sea and 2 in unmarked graves.

Thank You!
Hi Nancy,
Thank you so much for taking and posting the photo of my great great aunt and uncle's (Richard & Beryl Wygal) headstone. I so appreciate it especially since we just had a family reunion with many of their children and grandchildren.
Thanks again!

Hi Nancy,
Thank you so much for posting the photo of Florence J. Schack (memorial #71065763) grave marker. I met Florence once in Oct. 2000/01 when she and her husband came to eastern Iowa from Wash., searching for our ancestors. Florence's grandfather and my great grandmother are brother and sister. It's always nice to make personal contact with distant cousins of which there are many.

RE: Dreher Photos
You're welcome. Glad you liked the photos. I saw your "corrections" and just a question for you. If someone other than you were looking for Della, would they look for her under Adella or Della. If you think they would look for her under Adella, I'd be happy to change it. But if they would look under Della...should I change it? Let me know.

Yes...I love this site...found so many of my relatives of the past.

Hello, I got the photo today as you have probably seen today. I also added his wife Della to the site as they have a shared marker. If you are family, I'd be happy to transfer. Just let me know. Hope you are pleased. Take care.
