Bio and Links
Bio Photo 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 photos that I have taken for any non-commercial use. Please acknowledge that the photo was taken by Find A Grave Contributor Janet Marie #480008518 - especially when reposting it on Find A Grave.


There are some contributors who create memorials for individuals and list them as "burial unknown". They wait for photo volunteers 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.


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.

Dean Janet:
Thank you for your request about Gramma's memorial. I, too, like you do extensive research on all the graves I find. I inquired through Find-A-Grave about people listed on tombstones, if the memorial was ok to create and they said as long as the stone has them listed the memorial was ok. This is my wife's grandmother and we were researching her family as well as had several inquires to link to the family.
I try to help other researchers to find accurate information as opposed to just putting someone in their tree with false information and wrong last names.
Also I wanted you to know the family is ok with this memorial
Thank you again! And thank you for all the work you have and will do!

Naomi May Putzkie Schultz

Aunt Naomi was at one time married to Ed Schultz (see my interments) and I didn't even mention her in my write up of his and she wasn't even mentioned in his Obit. She did have one son, Donald Schultz which would be better if you mentioned him instead of Uncle Ed. So we'd appreciate it if you'd just drop his name out of there, OK?

RE: Calvary cemetery - FDL county
I have done 4 out of the 13 repairs so far. The landowner adjacent to the cemetery brought rocks and even placed them at the needed repairs! Many repairs at nearby cemeteries too. My shoulders are sore - the rain is okay for now! Not done yet (9 to go and many leaning ones!) but have posted at ""

RE: Eber Leavitt # 158638004
Hello Janet:

What an honor it must have been to take photos of the veterans! I would love to have copies of any photos you may have of my grandfather and to be able to share them with my immediate family.

RE: Eber Leavitt # 158638004
Hello Janet. Thank you for your note. I have checked the photos on Eber's site and none of the are sideways. I took a screenshot of all 5 photos, but I am unable to attach it to this message.

RE: tom angle
Thanks for letting me know. I still wonder if Tom's headstone is under that bush. I know I didn't create the name out of thin air.
However , I am getting older ..............:~))

tom angle
It was so long ago I don't remember why I started that memorial. Usually if I start a memorial it's because I have a picture of the headstone; but if I'd had a picture I would have posted it.
If you don't see any marker near the other Angles then I probably started the memorial in error.
Is it possible Toms headstone is under that bush that is nearly covering a female Angles headstone?
