Bio and Links
Bio Photo I am a retired computer systems programmer. As the son of a military father, I grew up without having close relations to extended family and my mother was adopted, so we knew little of her background. I developed an early interest in family trees and this has taken off since the addition of computers and the Internet. Find a Grave proved to be a wonderful source of genealogical information and after using it for some time, I decided to give something back to the site and help others as Find a Grave has helped me. So I became a photo volunteer and also research to add additional information to people on the site where I can.

Consider it done.

Thank you, Michael! Especially since the grave was unmarked and you took a photo of the location anyway!

RE: George Barnholt
Thank you Michael,

You're a gem for asking the cemetery staff to adjust the marker and then following through with a better photo. Bless you!

Thank you so much for the clear photo of George Barnholt's marker. It verifies his birthdate and that he is the father of the person I'll be linking.
