Historic Oregon Newspapers has added more newspapers. Today there are 107. Check out this site:)

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".

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:

"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.


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.

Hi Pam,
Thanks for the reminder, I contacted Find A Grave and they are requesting Find A Grave # of both my grandparents in IOOF and Masonic cemeteries so they can delete them from the Masonic cemetery. I do not know why someone had listed them in both but I have been to their graves countless times and know where they are. Lenna Jane Beavers Hankins is Ernest wife.
I will follow up on this today. Thanks again.

Death date is June 13, 1994. I have Canyon City but that may not be right for a death place.

I went to this cemetery today and fulfilled your PR for Frederick Martin d 1895. The gravestone is shaded by a pine tree and is difficult to photograph. His name is on the back (which is even darker) with some of his siblings...and his parents are on the front.

If someone can take a better photograph..then I will remove mine.

Good luck with your genealogy,

I didn't want to change the birth place only the death date. Maybe that's Find-a-Grave's mistake. If you accept the edit for the death date, check the memorial after and see if the edit removed the place and add it back in. That was not my intention at all!

Maryum McKee duplicates
Thank you for taking the lead on the McKee duplication. I'll watch to see what happens.

I'm slowly working my way through the Logtown records, trying to get the FindAGrave data to match what the Sexton's records show. If the correction doesn't happen, I'll be glad to make a second try at it.

Lesley/Leslie Family

You've done a lot of work on my Leslie/Lesley family members - it's very high quality and deeply appreciated. I'm a descendant of Pharmer Leslie, so I'm very much interested.
