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. THANKS!

My family tree surnames include

Would you be willing to transfer this memorial to me as Jim Bruce was my cousin on my father's side.

Jim's mother was a sister to my father.

Thank you,
