Bio and Links
Bio Photo Long-time instructor of writing and women's studies at Bowling Green State University, Bowling Green, OH. Addictive reader, interested in geneaology, folk music and sacred harp, Anglican, guitar player, singer, guardian of two rescue dogs.

I enjoy walking in cemeteries and have made it a personal project to photograph and record the headstones of military personnel in addition to requests in local cemeteries, in honor of their service and the service of my father, stepfather, and uncles in World War II and Korea, friends from Viet Nam, and students from the Gulf Wars, and the Irag and Afghanistan wars. If any of these service persons or others I have added are family members and/or you wish to manage their memorials, just let me know. I am happy to transfer.

Anyone who wants to use my photos in their family tree, on Findagrave, or any other site may do so without my permission.

Thanks for all your help with the Farkas family. We are still hoping to find the burial location of Rosa/Rose/Roszala (Bazo) Farkas, wife of William T. Farkas (132463965). Do you know of records for the Allen Township Cemetery that could be check just to make sure that she was not buried there? In the 1930 census, William lists himself as married, but Rosa is not living with him. In the 1940 census, William lists himself as widowed. Any guidance you can give is much appreciated!
