Bio and Links
Bio Photo I have worked with and enjoyed communicating with a number of great volunteers in both Colorado and Oregon and consider them my friends and FAG family. With that in mind this year has also brought me a few nasty volunteers that I have had to have FAG block from emailing me. Please if you are one of these move on no communication is required and leaves more time for me to help the ones that need and appreciate my help. Also, I don't believe I need help on how to load memorials – after over 50,000 memorials managed I think I have it down.

I enjoy helping people with finding and linking their families – investigating is in my blood. I also enjoy filling photo requests as you can tell by my over 2,500 currently taken. So if you need my help please let me know but please be considerate on the number asked at a time so I can help others who need my help. Also, if I tell you the grave is unmarked or the loved one was never buried at the cemetery, this was only brought to your attention after asking at least two people in the office and checking out the site myself to insure the information is accurate. I find I have a great working relationship with all the cemeteries I currently work with.

Transfers! If the name is Bolejack, Bolerjack, Pomeroy, Campbell, Deboard, Dickey, Hodges, Weddle, Francis, Barrett, Bennett, Boyde, Doyle, Braning, or Robinson – don’t bother asking. Or if I put a flower “ Family” – please don’t ask it just takes time away from what I am currently doing. With that said – I don’t believe in hording other volunteers family members. Sometimes it might take me a few days to answer but I do try and answer as quickly as possible. I also will not transfer when you have a proven history of poor updating and editing memorials skills. I believe that the loved one and their family members deserve someone that is prepared to take care of them.

Outside of FAG I am the proud grandmother of twin granddaughters and three grandsons. And if they don’t keep me busy enough I have two twin nephews and their brother that stop by to spread joy and the occasional cold.

Find A Grave Memorials: 182214658 & 182214875

Thank you for transferring Grace Emaline Hulcher Allen's memorial to my account. I added Grace E. Allen's obituary from the historical Illinois State Journal Register newspaper to her memorial.

Isle Maria Dorothea Kappenberg and Friedrich Dietrich Höltje have two living grandchildren: Hellen Allen Hellner and Austin Hulcher. I have a large collection of Hulcher family history and pictures from my Uncle Robert Warren Becker. I mailed a copy of the pictures to Hellen Hellner and Austin Hulcher to help identify who is who. Hellen was able to identify her mother, father, sister, and brother, etc.

Would you be so kind to transfer Heinrich Wilhelm Hulcher and Lillie Hulcher memorials 182214658 & 182214875 to my account 48392927? The next time I visit my mother, I will check the Lincoln Library Sangamon Valley collection for the "Tombstone Revelations in Macoupin County Illinois." I will check the Macoupin County Tombstone Revelations for Heinrich and Lillie Hulcher's tombstone locations. Also, Moore Cemetery in Carlinville Illinois is within driving distance. I will check Moore Cemetery for Heinrich and Lillie Hulcher's tombstones.

Thank you for this pic. I appreciate your time and effort dedicated to doing this. Because I know first hand what it's like searching cemeteries and the research that goes along with it to properly complete a memorial.

Dear VDR, very many thanks indeed for your endeavors.
I understand that her son visited England later that year and I now suspect he brought her remains with him to be laid with her husband. (Now trying to find details of son in the USA!)
This is my first time with this site and I am very impressed and so now in the process of doing photo requests in Cornwall and Devon in England. I will certainly not match your output. Well done and, again, many, many thanks. Bryon Mason

Thank you for researching them. Now for me to find them since they are not where they were supposed to be. :)

Many thanks for the wonderful photos posted on Find A Grave Memorial #44843419 for Lee Stock. The photo request was made on a Sunday and by the following day you posted the photo -- it doesn't get any better than that!

Thank you so much for your help in locating my paternal grandmother grave site. I knew very little about this person. I am her granddaughter from a long time ago - parents divorced and there was no contact with Elizabeth - now I have info on her.

Thank you for your excellent information about Mark's cremains. Now I will have to figure out how to put him in a virtual cemetery.

Appreciate your assistance very much.

RE: 68202989 Alice Frances Gale
Guess what I found today - a newspaper article in the Oregonian from Sunday Oct 14, 1900 for the marriage of Alice Frances Pritchard to L. Harry Gurney on Oct. 08, 1900. Also there is a site transfer from ancestry to the Oregon Marriage Index for their marriage, but it comes up as an Error when trying to connect to it. So the plot thickens. Still can't find anything on her death as of yet. I know she was born after Jennie & Harry got married. They were married in Greeley, Weld, Colorado, Nov. 08, 1882 according to their marriage certf., Alice was born July 31, 1883. Haven't been able to find any more "yet" and can't find anything on her husband, L. Harry Gurney. Will keep trying though. Thanks again for trying.

Photos of my parents' graves
Thank you for your wonderful photography. I just saw your photos of my parents' graves--Carl R. Kasch and Henrietta H. Kasch--in Mount Olivet Cemetery, Jefferson County, Colorado. Thank you so much for volunteering your time to honor their memory. I am very grateful. Barbara R
