I found Find A Grave while looking up the grave of a famous person on a computer terminal where I used to work, in early 2004. I continued to look up other graves, & eventually was hooked.
Every Cemetery is hallowed grounds. They are an important key to our past.
Please teach Your children that cemeteries & grave markers are a specific location where human beings are permanetely buried, and that they are to be respected, and not damaged or destroyed in any way, shape, or form. Cemeteries are very educational, they are very serene, & can be one of the safest places to be in. I have had many hobbies throughout my life; But "Graving" has given me a very rewarding, inner peace that I will never find elsewhere.
Are you still active? I sent some info for a bio for a memorial last August and have not had the info added. Please let Findagrave know if you can no longer manage your memorials or let me know to resend the info to you. Diane

# 13819673 James Brownlee Dear Sandman, I'm hoping you can help me. I recently discovered the memorial for my 5th great grand father James Brownlee # 13819673. You both maintain this memorial and added the photo there. What I am hoping for is that you might have either a better photo or that perhaps you can read the inscription and add it to the memorial. Thanks, Bonnie
