Bio and Links
I began researching my family tree in 2010. I wanted to find out about my heritage. It has been a very interesting and addictive hobby.
I love to be able to put a face to the name in the tree, so love to get photos. The next best thing to a photo is a grave site. It marks that that person lived, and I think that is important.

I now have a very unusual hobby in that I love to research the people whose graves I enter onto FAG. I like to find the parents and spouses of the graves I enter, so that I can connect them, and thus help people find their loved ones. I find this is especially helpful to people researching on Ancestry.com. I like to link children's graves to parents and to find the maiden names of the women I enter. Where possible I like to enter the photo of the graves (This is of course limited to my geographical area).

If I can help anyone to connect with their families I am happy. If I have entered in one of your loved ones that you would like to manage, please contact me. Please feel free to use the photos I have taken, and I ask that you kindly acknowledge the source.

RE: re Frank Lockwood,
Thanks Sonya,

Very odd all on the same date I created them, but extra info on middle name and different plot numbers. I would say there was a double up in the info I was was using and did not pick up on the names.

Thanks for the pick up,

Marc.

RE: re Anna Gabriel, nee Salzke
Thank you for your kind words. I don't think our hobby is weird! :) I'm a bit like you with the maiden names & families. Sometimes I get distracted while transcribing and even while I may have 500+ photos to do, I go off on a tangent looking for mothers/fathers/siblings etc. I love it!
