Bio and Links
Bio Photo I'm a retired teacher from Wisconsin who became interested in genealogy in the fall of 2012. I'm looking forward to learning more about ways to find out information about my ancestors and my husband's ancestors.

I am more than happy to make additions and/or corrections to memorials. Please use the edit key rather than leaving a public message. If you are a relative and would like to have a memorial transferred to you, please submit that request through the edit key as well. Please state how you are related. Transfer requests outside of Find A Grave guidelines will be considered on an individual basis.

When I take photos at cemeteries, I like to take a wide shot if possible to include other family members. I usually create a caption for the photo saying who is in the photo. To see the caption, just double click on the photo.

I am granting permission to use any photos that I have taken for any non-commercial use. It would be appreciated if you would acknowledge that the photo came from me. Please feel free to use them on family trees and other websites.


Please check out the virtual cemeteries that I have been working on. If you have any information that you would like to share with me, please use the edit key or send me a public message through Find A Grave.

I enjoy photographing entire cemeteries, creating new memorials, and adding photos to existing memorials. I try to do a quick search to see if I can document family relationships. Before I go on to the next cemetery, I try to make sure that duplicate memorials have been removed and all memorials are actually in the correct cemetery (when possible).

Listed below are the cemeteries I have completed so far by county. The first year listed is the year I photographed the entire cemetery. The second year, if listed, is the year I last walked through the entire cemetery again looking for updates.

There are some contributors who create memorials for individuals and list them as "burial unknown". They wait for photo volunteers like me to find these individuals and create memorials for them in the correct cemetery. Then after the individual is found, the contributor sends a request to remove the "duplicate" record. It's pretty unscrupulous, but it's done. Please, don't do this to Find A Grave contributors who work hard walking local cemeteries and taking countless photos.

If I happen to find one of the people you have been looking for, please send me a thank you through the edit key, remove your memorial, and request a transfer. I will be more than happy to honor your request. I might even be willing to move my photos over to your memorial and delete mine under certain circumstances.

If there are duplicate records in a cemetery, a request will be sent to Find A Grave to merge the memorials. All the information, photos, etc. will be preserved. Find A Grave will decide which memorial to keep, which usually is the memorial that was created first in the correct cemetery. This usually takes about 1-2 weeks.

Thank You Janet for the info on Charles and Lydia Pagel, and go ahead and delete the memorials. I am amazed you took on such a large project to photo the graves and get them in order. Keep up the good work!

RE: Merrill Frederick Paulson #96769476
Yes mama! I would love to see the other photos.
I think what they did mounting the military marker with the other stone was a very good idea. My e-mail:
Before you ask, my husband & I are both Navy veterans, thus the address. I've had a few people asking. So sometimes I go ahead & mention it before I'm aksed. I'm anxious to find out if Susan E. (Newcomb) Chase is with her husband William Wallace Chase#141119652 more then naything else. Susan is my husband's 2nd Grt-Grandmother. I've been trying to find for her the last ten years. We appreciate your effoerts to help us out here who can't travel very much anymore. Have a safe & enjoyable week. Take care & God bless. Don't worry over your Ooops! moments. I've had my share also so your not alone.

Hi! Janet,
Thanks for getting the photo. This guy is a cousin to my husband. Rod was wondering. Did you happen to notice if the Military marker was next to him or mounted on the back of the husband & wife marker.
We've seen it done this way in other cemeteries.
Where there is a husband & wife marker & the back side is blank. So the military marker was attached to the back side of the husband & wife marker. It makes sense to us. It would only have to be mounted to an already installed base for the marker. Thanks again for your time & help.
You have a safe & enjoyable week coming up. Take care & God bless.

Phil Pagel photo and grave plot
Thank you so much! As a manager, I don't really know when people post photos, but your kind edit (helpful, too, because it helps with finding the grave) completed the pictures--the others didn't have the actual death year, but yours finished the story. I also cleaned up the memorial a bit, too, so that the photos would have more room.
