Bio and Links
Bio Photo I want to state clearly that anyone is free to use the photos that I take for any nonprofit purpose.

I enjoy genealogy. I consider myself fairly new at it. I was introduced in 2008 by a phone call, out of the blue, from a cousin I didn't know I had. She was researching our family and found me. We share a great grandfather. I was intrigued, and have been researching my family ever since. I find that I can spend all my time researching. There is no end to the information I want to know.

I research online. I was a computer person (I make my living as an author of computer books), before I started genealogy research. I had seen Find a Grave, but was focused elsewhere and didn't pay attention. Recently (May 2010), I stopped and really looked at Find A Grave. When I realized what it was, I became a fan. I had been meaning to photo a family grave at the local cemetery, so I took some photo requests with me. I discovered I enjoyed being in the cemetery. It is lovely and peaceful. The headstones are interesting. And my body appreciates moving more, rather than sitting in front of the computer all day. So, I created pages from photos I took at the local cemetery, but moved away before could photo the entire cemetery.

I enjoy several different aspects of this research. I enjoy the puzzle, of course. I enjoy sharing information. To me, an important part of the research is making it available to help others with their research. I also enjoy the community of genealogy, cousins, and Find A Grave.

I am quite serious about accuracy. I only enter facts that I am very sure about. If anyone finds errors, let me know, but be prepared to say why you believe my entry is in error. Also, I love to add information if someone offers good data. And, I have no problem with transferring a page to someone who is more closely related to the person, as long as that person appears to keep their memorials accurate and updated.

I also maintain a website providing my Russell family research at the URL below.

I appreciate your work and quick response on the photo. Tom and I were neighbors and friends in our youth.

It appears someone has already deleted the memorial. Sorry it took a while I have been ill.

Thank you
Janet. Thanks so much for your efforts in fulfilling the photo request for William Mellon. He doesn't appear to be the William Mellon/Melon I'm looking for, but it definitely helped to see the gravestone photo. Rose

Thank you so much! I was told that my great grandmother had no headstone. I guess while I was visiting California a couple of years ago no one wanted to make a trip to the cemetery lol. Thanks again!

Glaydus Jacobson Update
Thank you so much for making the additions to her memorial. After seeing them I realized you did not have a date of birth. I have submitted that as well since it is now allowing me to make suggested edits. Again, thank you so much. I love this site and the loving work everyone does to make this such a wealth of information for those seeking the same.

Date of Death: Sept. 19, 1993 in Lane, Oregon

Parents: John N. Cooper (59556448) and Alpha Spainhour Cooper (59556475).

Her second husband was Terah Ireland (59556032)

She is buried with her first husband. She was my grandmother's sister and I am trying to get them all connect on Findagrave.

Thank you for your assistance.
