Bio and Links
Bio Photo I am a full time librarian and a when-I-have-the-time hobbyist graver.

My father was an avid fan of Find a Grave and he introduced me to this site before he passed away in 2008. Memorial # 46644773

You can feel free to use creative commons with the photos I take if you'd like to use them in your genealogy or family history projects. (But please do not add my photos to other websites without giving proper credit).


I LOVE to find relatives and homes for the memorials I manage, so IF you see a memorial you'd like TRANSFERRED, I'm more than happy to do so, just put in the request via the "EDIT" option. (Will transfer ANY except those in my Family Virtual Cemetery). ***Also, to expedite edits please use the EDIT tab that Find a Grave provides in the upper right hand corner of all memorials. "Suggested corrections" should be used for transfer requests or other edits that are not options under the EDIT tab.***

Please do not send me requests to change the entry of MAIDEN name for Males whose name origin indicates that they are LATINO. This name is often their mother's maiden name and used for lineage purposes. Maybe a suggestion would be for Find A Grave to add an entry space for this.

My family lines are Schmidt/Wassem and Johnsen/Hale. My husband's family lines are Alves/Carvalho and Bacellar/Huet.

Thnks for catching the double photos, Carolyn. I probably hit the send button twice. Duh! I deleted one, so it's good now.

RE: Maude Buckley
No problem! Since all the information is correct, I'd forgotten I asked for the transfer. :-)
