Bio and Links
Bio Photo Hi Everyone - Back when I was 8 years old, my grandpa, Paul Joseph Peter Allen, helped me make a family tree for a school project. Back then we didn't get that far...LOL. In 1999, I found that project and started working on it again. Now I've got over 20,000 people connected to my tree. I think my grandpa would be proud of what I've accomplished, thus my name, My Labor of Love!!! I'm a "Genealogy Pack Rat" and it's time that I shared my findings. I hope I was able to help someone with this information.

Take Care & God Bless -
(a mom of 3 cutie pies)

My goal is to attain what was once lost or forgotten. To investigate and then document my finding to further an ancestry or find a loved one. But most of all, making sure everyone is remembered no matter how short or long they were on this earth or what accomplishments they did or didn't do, that they are remembered and their story is told.

Please use the "Suggest a correction or provide additional information" found under the Edit tab.

First and foremost, you must be related to that individual; (ex: grandfather, grandmother, father, mother, uncle, aunt, cousin, etc...) I really don't care how many generations back, you could be a 4th cousin 5x removed, as long as the lineage is there! If you meet that criteria, please use the Edit tab on the individual that you would like transferred over to your care. Then select "Suggest a correction or provide additional information". Please include your Find A Grave ID #, relationship to the individual, and that you would like this memorial transferred to you. I'll transfer anyone that isn't in my family tree. But if it happens to be someone that is, closest relationship to that person wins!

I think it's selfish for people to take possession over a photo taken, so please feel free to use any photos that I post.

125827346 - William Adams
Do you know if there is a photo of his gravestone? I found ancestors gravestones that have died around this time, so thought we might find William Adams.
Do you have any other information about William Adams? If so, I would love to talk with you -

Thank you - Jody

Harriet "Hattie" Elizabeth Huff Thompson

When you have a minute, would you please go into this memorial and remove her death record? I was just given a tintype that I've never seen before, of Hattie and her son Freddie. I'd like to add it to the memorial but I can't. Thank you for your understanding on this and for the work that you do on this site.

Geraldine "Jerrie" Antisdel died 9 Dec 1964
I believe she was 62 not 50 when she died. I show her in the 1920 census as being 18.

Lillian Rigden Waldenburng
Hi and thank you for your wonderful work. I just have a question regarding Lillian Rigden Waldenburg Find A Grave Memorial # 70158082. It mentions that her husband was Charles Waldenburg, burial place Ottawa, LaSalle, IL, cemetery, Ottawa Avenue Cemetery. Is he the same Charles Waldenburg in Find A Grace Memorial # 145135845, because they have different year of death. Do you have an obituary or information you can send to me, Lillian was my husband 1st cousin. Thank you

Please disregard the father as Ascenath [Powell] Spencer. It SHOULD have read 99239460 - Isaac F Spencer. Please change to the CORRECT #.
