Bio and Links
Bio Photo I add memorials as I have time when I see obits in my local papers. I don't usually have additional information on these people. I also add obits from my research into my family lines.

I do check each name before I add it, so there should be no duplicates. However, mistakes happen. There are often alternate spellings of a name, or tombstone dates are wrong and my search does not find a previous entry. So if you find a duplicate, message me and if you have the earlier entry, we will work together to get the information consolidated!

One of the reasons I do this is to help ensure those who have gone before us are remembered and, if possible, 'reunited' with family. If you find a relative or close friend among my burials, please let me know. I am willing to transfer care to you, unless the burial is part of my family tree. In that case, I would love to exchange information with you. You can leave me a public message or use my email.

I welcome corrections and additions, but would appreciate if you would leave a message giving your source, particularly if it conflicts with my information. I do NOT add obituaries unless they are out of copyright. I also try to avoid including names of the living. If you are friend or family of the deceased and wish to have this information added, please ask for a transfer. (But be aware that this is not acceptable under Find A Grave rules.) THANKS!

Yes he is friend - his wife has re-married and I am helping her buy a house. He is also buried at my church. Thanks much, Fred

Clarence was my father. If you'd like to send it to me that would be fine. Thanks!

I'll let you create the memorials and add the photos for you. I'm just a photo volunteer but have nothing to do with the family research. Letn me know. Always glad to help,

You are very welcome. I was going to post the picture on her husbands memorial also but he didn't have one. Also there is an Ursula Ford next to their marker. I took a photo of her marker also But she has no memorial either.
