April 11, 2014:

Historic Oregon Newspapers has added more newspapers. Today there are 100.

*There is a new modification/feature on FindAGrave that I've just discovered by accident and that FindAGrave did not individually notify contributors about. Please check out this feature because when it works, it is a great feature:)

Go to the FindAGrave website at this link for their directions and "read everything" under "Editing and Correcting Memorial Information".

http://www.findagrave.com/cgi-bin/fg.cgi?page=listFaqs#169

and also look under this title in the directions: "What if I suggest a correction and the contributor doesn't respond?"

On another subject:
*Recently I received an email from another contributor who told me of finding stories in Hawaiian newspapers for his relative on the Library of Congress - Chronicling America - Historic American Newspapers website. His relative was my memorial in Oahu Cemetery in Honolulu. So I searched the Library of Congress website and found numerous articles for his relative in newspapers in Hawaii and I also found numerous articles in Tennessee newspapers where I am working on a family tree for a friend. Here is the link to the Library of Congress site:

July 14, 2013:
I am currently working on a project that you might be interested in. I am searching Historic Oregon Newspapers and the Grant County News (in particular), Canyon City, Oregon (1879-1908) online for marriages, births, deaths/obits, and stories of interest and putting them on FindAGrave memorials and sometimes creating new memorials. These old newspapers are frequently difficult to read and therefore the news clips may be difficult, but not impossible, to read. There are approximately 50 newspapers on this website (70 newspapers as of July 2013 so 20 more have been added) and they seemed to share news stories probably because some of the newspapers were owned by the same person. There is so much history "hiding" in these old newspapers - you would be amazed! If you want to search yourself - go to this link:

http://oregonnews.uoregon.edu/search/pages/

"The Historical Oregonian (newspaper) 1861-1987" is also a good place to search and is free "if" you live in Clackamas, Washington, or Multnomah Counties in Oregon. You have to go to the Multnomah County Library website and sign up. Or you can request a librarian do a search for you or you may need to get a library card to sign up.


Here is a link to the California Digital Newspaper Collection which is free but you have to sign up:

Please DON'T use the Virtual Flowers feature to post corrections as I get no notice when a VF is posted and therefore can't add or make corrections. Use the VFs only for tributes and condolences as per F.A.G. guidelines.

PLEASE PLEASE ADD PHOTOS TO MEMORIALS. THIS IS VERY IMPORTANT AS YOU MAY HAVE THE ONLY EXISTING PHOTOS!!!

When you photograph in a cemetery, please take photos of the cemetery entrance and a picturesque view(s) of the cemetery in the event the home page for the cemetery does not have a photo(s) of the cemetery. Then you can post your photo(s) to the home page. ALSO, please don't take photos looking down on a headstone unless there is engraving on top of the headstone. If possible, squat to take a photo as it will be a much better photo.

I am willing to consider transfering ownership to you if you have a family member among my records. PLEASE use the "Edit" tab on the memorial you want transferred and then "Suggest any other correction…". This is the "correct way" to request a transfer. I may not transfer to you if the number of memorials that you manage is significantly greater than the number that you have contributed OR if you are only working on your own family and not contributing to the FAG community as a whole.

NOTICE: If you want to use any of my photos that I have posted on FAG you are welcome to do so as long as it is for genealogical research and is neither immoral or illegal! Please give me credit for my own photos if you post them in your family tree, etc. Thanks.

I liked going to cemeteries as a child, looking at headstones and listening to my relatives talk about deceased family members. Most years, I went with my grandparents, Arch and Manila Jones, to the Monument Cemetery, Grant County, Oregon which was a weed patch except for Memorial Day when family would get together and bring flowers and clean off the graves and visit.

I hope to help others by posting memorials and photos of pioneer cemeteries in Central and Eastern Oregon and the Willamette Valley, Oregon.

I was wondering if Livingston Cemetery is the same as Kilbride Cemetery or if they are 2 different cemeteries? Milissa

I have a question for you. Where did you find the information on her and her husband William? I believe he is one of my Uncles.

I appreciate any information you may have.

Dear Pam,

I am hoping that you will transfer this memorial to me. Rayburn and Josephine were my great uncle and aunt. I have done some research on their lives which I would like to contribute. My husband and I visited Condon, OR--a tiny oasis high above the Columbia, River. They chose Condon as the ideal place to retire.

Hi Pam,
Thank you for all the work you do for Oregon.
I'm referencing the memorial # 29842424 for Henry Anderson.
The headstone shows that Margaret Adelia (Wimer) his wife, is also buried in the same spot.
If you would kindly create a separate memorial for her I would so much appreciate it.

Her parents are George Joseph Wimer ( mem # 99908306)
and Hattie Eliza Funkhouser ( mem # 99908507)
