They come from Pa to NC/TN, from KY to TX.
Willing to take those of my family lines, extended families & those in our Smothers Tribe DNA project to manage when I run across them. I am glad to submit various family memorials as the information & gravestone information is gathered & given to me. I gladly help anyone I can. It is my passion as a genial genealogist to assist others as much as possible.

...I like this I saw on a gal's page recently, "Let's make it a goal to add as much information, as we can possibly document, to these memorials."

Had to snag this from a gal's site.."I enjoy reading contributors Bio's but it's called that for a reason but Not, to use the space to reiterate guidelines by a contributor who feels the need to preach to others about how they should make their memorials. Believing we are all adults & know the guidelines most all do act accordingly & do not need to be preached at."

New! snagged this on member's site which I agree with 100%, "Any and all info or pics I have uploaded are meant for SHARING! Family memories were meant to be passed on. I just don't understand anyone that thinks different, if you don't want to share, than DON'T put them on a public site!"
Death certificates may be added via the "Add a photo" button on the memorial page. [that should end that discussion]I like DC for their info not always totally correct but most of the time very informative good info and helps as guides especially if someone died young, why, I feel that is important to visitors and family, esp if it is some inherited issue family needs to know.
There is a dna test out now called 23and me that also helps families know of inherited issues esp any fatal ones passed from generations down.

I admin our Smothers Tribe DNA project 2002-2015 as well as admin rootsweb & ancestry mail lists & boards to help others. I live on a ranch, am happily retired and besides a heartfelt Passion for Genealogy; I immensely enjoy working with members in helping folks connect with their ancestors. Am happy to make links, corrections & transfers. I am especially appreciative of our gravestone photographers and are owed big Cudos!!
Many kind thanks to all who leave flowers on any of our ancestor memorials!~Happy Trails!

Here are tidbits:JFYI
finding Gravestones without a dob>
when you don't have a dob and only dod & yr, mo, dy-here's a formula to figure out the dob
example: person died May 6 1889 age 71yr 7mo 9dy
1. write year, month day >18890506
2. subtract age at death >> 710709
3. gets this sum >>>>> 18179797
4. subtract 8870 >>>>>> 1817/09/27
= Sept 27 1817
here is another way to do it if the above gets you too frustrated/:-)
freebie calculator someone sent me.

If you wonder when census are done go here

LDS site has added millions of new records; checking it probably will find a DC for that individual with most all info one needs for any missing dob/dod's.
LDS research site/new

"The Dash" is based on that little line on a tombstone, between the dates of birth and death. Ultimately, that dash is a symbol which represents every day they've spent alive on earth. Therefore, how you spend your "dash" is all that really matters. These memorials we do for folks hopefully give a glimpse into their lives of that DASH!

FLASH!!update/after years of research I personally believe WE have finally found our 4x grandad burial site, Capt William Smeathers
#113766278 more to come on this great discovery!

Confused! Whoever is going to my memorials and putting flowers on there then signing MY name, please stop it now. You are using the Forget me, even placing it in my own private Scrapebook as I do NOT have in my scrapebook, and don't know HOW you are doing that, which I KEEP deleting it and YOU KEEP putting it back in there! Its very annoying, very spooky even and NO idea WHY you are doing it. So folks beware!! If it can happen to me, it CAN happen to you, keep check on your scrapebook flowers and YOUR memorials and flowers you don't put in your own scrapebook and watch the dates posted, sure give away. They must need numbers for virtual flowers, just do not get it!! YES, its been reported!!

More later~~Happy Trails >>>>

Sarah Pennington
Thank you for contacting me regarding Sarah Pennington's birth/death information. The 1880 Mortality Schedule stated that she died November 1879 and she was 45 years old, even though the stone says Dec. Since there is a discrepancy, I will put a note on her site explaining where I obtained the information.

Thanks, Nena.

My fingers no longer obey in typing. My typing speed is maybe 20 words per minute instead of 70+. ARMD challenges my vision.

RE: Johnson etc
The pleasure is mine Nena. Do you know of any other photos needed in the Spokane area?
On the John C. Zeimantz page is a comment about "the photographer put the wrong photos here". Can you delete that for me?
Thanks and happy hunting.

Thank you for the information you supplied. Yes, the US SS Death Index supplies last residence and the TX Death Index supplies actual location of death.
