Bio and Links
Bio Photo I'm just a guy who became interested in tracking down my family tree, which led me to Find a Grave.
So now I'm trying to help out filling a few photo gaps in nearby cemeteries.
I try to do more than just take photos. I try to reconstruct the families that I find, especially the women, who many times have no other identity than "Mother", or end up kicked to the curb over divorces and such.

RE: Molenaars of Riverview Cemetery
If YOU were in it for more than "self-aggrandizement", as you rudely said to me, YOU would realize that FAMILY should take precedence! Those are not just STONES to me, it is MY FAMILY buried there! Only a complete jerk would speak to the FAMILY MEMBERS of those who have passed on as you are speaking to me! Are you the one putting flowers on those graves? No, I AM! Because they are MY FAMILY. How DARE you speak to the family members of these people in such a way. They are not just grave stones to us, they were PEOPLE, our ancestors, whom we love and care about. If you had a heart, maybe you could understand that. STOP HARASSING ME.

RE: Molenaars of Riverview Cemetery
I am a great-granddaughter of the Molenaars. My extended family in other areas of the country greatly appreciate the obituary details and photos I provide via the website. So no, I will not be removing my contributions. If you do not want duplicates, remove yours. Family should take precedence.
