|Bio and Links|
|I am interested in cemeteries, local history, and the main mission of Find A Grave - registration of the final disposition. I am a cemetery trustee and manage the records for several cemeteries in my area. I do not use this site for genealogy. After thirty plus years of research, I am no longer a family tree enthusiast. It seems the standards for research have gone out the window for the most part, and I am not a fan of the online "copy and paste information without documentation" type of "research" used today. All edits I receive will be researched for accuracy before approval and additional documentation may be requested. Please do not add scanned obits or death certificates to the memorials I manage. Any information from these documents can be added through the proper channels by using the edit tab. Please submit all additions and/or corrections through the edit tab at the top of the memorial and I will address them as soon as possible and within the site guidelines. I will not add links to memorials where the final disposition is unknown. This site is called Find A Grave for a reason. It's really not a hard concept.|
For more information on requesting corrections and/or additions see:
How do I update or correct an error in memorial data?
and for more information on the transfer process please see:
How do I get a relative's memorial transferred to me?
How To Contact Me
I may be contacted for any reason by clicking on the "Edit" tab at the top of any of my managed memorials, then select the 6th option on the list that says, "Suggest any other correction or addition". Type your message in the text box and send. I will receive your message in an email from Find A Grave. Any Find A Grave contributor can be contacted in this same manner even if their messages are disabled and they have no email address on their profile.
My photos are copyrighted and have been hosted on my personal and cemetery websites long before I became a Find A Grave member, so I prefer that they remain there. My photos should not be shared, uploaded to Find A Grave, Ancestry.com, any of their affiliates, or used on any other website or publication without my express written permission.
