Bio and Links
When I retired from the Penn State University Libraries, where I was a reference assistant and staff supervisor for many years, I began to research our family history, and this has led my husband and I to a number of cemeteries around the country, searching for family members and taking photos of their graves. It has thrilling for us to find the grave sites of long-lost relatives as well as to visit those of fondly-remembered loved ones. It has been equally thrilling to discover photos that have been posted to Find a Grave for relatives buried in distant places that we have not visited or are not likely to ever be able to visit.

We are very appreciative to all of the Find a Grave community of volunteers who so freely give of their time and effort in creating memorials and taking photos, so that others may benefit from them. Likewise, we are happy to share our photos with anyone who cares to use them for personal research or on genealogical sites such as We aren't professional photographers, and our egos are not invested in our photos. That said, we would still love to hear from you if you are able to use our photos, simply to give us a little "glow" from being able to help you out.

Most of the memorials we have posted have been for members of our families, but we will consider transfer requests within the Find a Grave transfer guidelines. If there are errors to correct and/or additions to be made, please let us know and we will attend to them as soon as possible.

RE: Photo permission
Hi Gwen,
Yes you have my permission to use the photos. Sorry it has taken me so long to respond. I haven't been able to do any genealogy research in several years. I work a full-time job and decorate cakes, cupcakes & cookies in the evenings and on weekends. I'm going to try to get back to my research very soon. Have a wonderful day! Julie

RE: Emily Hurlbert
No worries! I didn't notice the date until I got home and started to write up the 'problem, that she was not listed in the directory! Hope you eventually find her!
