Bio and Links
Bio Photo To answer an unasked question, as the eldest of eight children, I became the unofficial keeper of tales at an early age. I started doing genealogy in earnest about 1990 when I discovered I have a talent for doing research, while studying for my BA in Art History at Oakland University, Rochester, Michigan. My father was a Professional Photographer in Pontiac for over 30 years and he taught his children his craft and instilled in us a love of good photography. Through the years I have been amassing my own collection of family memorial photographs that I call "Engraved in Stone". A substantial amount of this collection was captured on film and has yet to be digitized. Finding "Find a Grave" has given me a way to share those photographs easily and economically with family members. Helping people like you, gentle reader, is a pleasure because I enjoy doing the research just as much as I enjoy wandering the cemeteries and taking pictures.

Thank you so much for the transfer and the photo. What a pleasant surprise that you had taken the picture earlier and I didn't have to wait until spring.

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!

Thanks Barbara. You solved a mystery. I would be happy to manage Effie's sister-in-law's memorial.

Hi Fry
Your dad was Fry Photo? I wanted to work for him as a kid. I ended up working for Mr. O'Conner who owned the studios in the Hudson's stores.

Love your bio.

Edna Hilliker memorial
What a delight to find that you had visited the site of my Great-Aunt's burial site in Perry Mount Park Cemetery and recorded valuable information from the cemetery records! It is sad to see that that Edna does not have a headstone or marker to date, I don't know how long my Great-Grandparents lived in the area or if they were just passing through when she sadly passed away. The image with the arrows designating her burial plot is so appreciated as it shows that she existed and was valued. I read your bio on your contributor page ~ what an incredible legacy that you have growing up with a Photographer parent! I have always believed that those who have studied photography always tend to take the most amazing images for photo requests for appreciative strangers such as myself here on Find.a.Grave, always keeping in mind lighting and composition of the headstones in order to provide a personal touch. This is truly a gift that you have. Thank you so much for visiting Edna's grave. Warmly, Helen Murphy, Nashville,Tennessee

RE: Lorene B. West
Your too fast for me. I was going to put in a photo request but a wonderful picture was already posted on her memorial by you.

Thank you so much for the heads up. I downloaded a copy for my genealogy records. Much appreciated.
