Bio and Links
Bio Photo After taking a cemetery tour in 2008, I decided to photograph and transcribe the graves of the Civil War soldiers buried at Pittsford Cemetery. That little project snowballed into an obsession to find any information I could about these hometown heroes.

Since that first tour, I have given many cemetery tours of my own, and I continue to be amazed at the interesting people who lived in this community.

The majority of the graves I list on Find A Grave are people who reside in my neighborhood cemeteries. I have seen the graves and, in several cases, personally tend to them on a regular basis.

Find A Grave has been very helpful in my personal genealogy searches, as well as to my Civil War soldiers project. I look forward to assisting others with their searches as a contributor.

My blog, Illuminated History (, details my research into the lives of interesting people from the Rochester-area community.

Hi Vicki,
Thank you for watching over the McAndrew memorials. I no longer live in the area and you do a beautiful job with local history. Thank you for all your work for the FG community.

Brown edits and corrections
Dear Vicki,

Thank you so much for the quick edits and corrections on Helen Marion Brown Cassidy, her sister, Alma Luella Brown, and her parents: Elwin Francis Brown and Ada Marian Harwick Brown. They are all in my family tree of the Brown family that originated from England in the 1600's. I have been researching my genealogy for about 4 years now. I appreciate the hard work that you do. Once again thank you so much!
