About Me


I love to do genealogy research and help others locate their loved ones records.  I’ve been working on my family genealogy for about 18 years now, and I have a strange obsession with cemeteries that some people have dubbed my “morbid hobby”.  I first started adding records to findagrave from cemetery books in the library, then I started walking and photographing the cemeteries. Lately, I have not had as much time to do that but I still like to help in other ways.

  1. Thank you for the important work you and your wife started. I hope you and your wife will continue to find time to pursue your passion.

    1. Thanks for your comment and welcome to the site. Just a correction, the work is being done by me, the wife lol. My husband has absolutely no interest in genealogy or my research, he just tags along to cemeteries because he feels its unsafe for me to go by myself or he’ll hang out with me at the library because he can work from anywhere (he works for the company that created WordPress). Let me know if I can help you with anything in particular.


  2. Keep up the good work. There is nothing strange about keeping the history alive and looking to the deceased is necessary to document it. Sites like these are a labor of love and research is fun when you get the time to do it. I have created a few of my own and I am currently working on another. Thank you for all you do.

  4. I am interested in the Ella Levenia Poff memorial at Find-a-Grave. Find A Grave Memorial# 16026382 You have her listed as the wife of Lewis Lee Cole. Do you have any info on this couple. I have Lewis’s wife as Ella H (no last name). I got this from his Death Record. Lewis is my 1st cousin 2x removed.
