Bio and Links
Bio Photo My family's roots can be found all over Ireland. Branches came together in Brooklyn, NY where I was born.

My particular interests include Mahon in east Galway, Coates of Kildare, and Finn & Galligan of north Co. Cork, as well as Jamieson and Farquhar from Angus, Scotland.

In my travels I've collected interment lists and monument photographs from cemeteries in the U.S. and Europe. If you find a memorial that may belong to you, please contact me.

Best of good luck in your searches.

RE: Abrahamson
Hi, Yes, nice to get a photo of a memorial ....out of the blue especially. If the location wasn't shown on her site, it may never have been photographed. I just happened across it when reviewing sites without photos at that cemetery. I'm not related either so hopefully a relative will eventually contact you. Best regards.

RE: Billy Blair
Your very kind and probably correct in your thinking. Thank you for adding the memorial. But, to be sure, I am not the author of his obituary...merely collected and held on to it. Have a great day and thanks again. Helen

Hi Pat,

I uploaded Ellen's marker per your request, and I wanted to let you know that she is buried in Lot 185, not 158 as listed on your request. I don't know if this was just a typo or if you had the incorrect information.

RE: Knox in Otho, IA
Completed both requests. I really dislike when the county name isn't included in the drop-down list!
So I put info in bio.

I had her hooked up to the wrong John, that's for sure! Thanks.

You're very welcome! The curator actually directed me to the wrong plot, and I just happened to wander all the way across the cemetery and found her stone by myself. It was kind of magical. 8-)

St Marys Cemetery

If there is no grave stone, I have 2 flags I can use to photograph the grave site, An American flag, or an Irish Flag,

Which would you prefer?

Yes, I will try and get out there next weekend, weather permitting.
On the memorial page for Wm Collins
Please Push the button for the request a Photo for the grave.

This puts a listing of all the grave requests onto a single page, then I print out this page before I go to the Cemetery.

If there is someone in the office, I will try and locate the graves of everyone on the page.

If there is no stone on the grave I will place a Flag on the grave and photograph the flag.

If the stone is unreadable, is it OK to wash the stone?

This is a response to you message:

Hi Peter, Thanks very much for taking the time to be a volunteer. Would appreciate it if you would see if there is a stone for Wm Collins in St Mary's Section 2, Range 3, Grave 12. Thanks very much.
