Bio Photo You have my permission to use any headstone photo I have posted, as you wish.


If you are responding to me because of an "edit" I sent to you or a memorial I made, PLEASE include the memorial number or the URL to that page. A simple mention of their name is not enough.

I will gladly make changes or corrections, no matter how small, if you request them. PLEASE do this by clicking on "edit" at the upper-right corner of the memorial, use their form to notify me by email. If this is your loved one, I would prefer transferring management to you. Just ask, same process.

I'm always happy to transfer to any family member. I'll never understand the reluctance of some contributors to let go of the memorials of strangers simply because they've created them. That's why we do it isn't it? For their family to find them. That's why I do it.

I have always enjoyed visiting cemeteries, especially the older, historical sections, long before I knew any of the "residents"... I am a regular visitor to Lower Lake Cemetery as it is nearest to me and I have friends and family there.

I began making entries at Find a Grave, first with ancestor's info, my parents in Hayward, then Lower Lake Cemetery because I have lived here for so long, I knew or know of many of the "residents." I knew many of these people personally and/or their families. I am not related to any of them directly. Two sets of in-laws, including my husband, many friends, high-school teachers and classmates, the doctor that delivered my son, etc., etc. My son has eight grandparents in this cemetery counting the greats- and steps-. My parents are in a Hayward cemetery because they made their own pre-need arrangements. If they were here, I would take care of them too. Thanks to Find A Grave I am able to "visit" them, add virtual flowers and notes, gather them and their families into virtual cemeteries I made for that purpose, and so on. I love that we can request headstone photos for those distant graves and get them! Usually. I DON'T LOVE THE FUSS ABOUT COPYRIGHT ISSUES THAT OCCUR OCCASIONALLY.

Every time I start to work on my family tree, I get side-tracked in the local cemetery. Since the beginning of 2011, I have been systematically photographing all the tombstones there and making memorials here. I REPEAT, FEEL FREE TO USE ANY HEADSTONE PHOTOS I HAVE ADDED AS YOU WISH!

I am always researching AKRIDGE and HAVENHILL/HEAVENHILL/HIMMELBERGER family trees... when I'm not getting lost in my neighboring cemetery.

Happy hunting.

Hey, I appreciate the newbie help offer. Knowing me, I'll probably have to take you up on that, so am sure you'll hear from me again. (-: -ajf

Thank you so much for the transfer of Mary Love Dillard Snow's memorial. I thought I'd posted a message yesterday but it didn't stick for some reason. (Am pretty sure I didn't imagine the whole thing, though anything, esp. at my age, is possible!) Anyway, just wanted to make sure you knew how much I appreciate it. Thanks again. All best. -ajf

RE: Hello
Yes, I have had that with the editing, too. I forget to check, as well. I haven't denied any yet, though.

RE: Hello/ Groups
I'll check with the first one. I'm in Cemetery Oddities and Homemade Headstones. I've made a few homemade ones is why I got in that one. I was in Find a Grave Volunteers and got out because there was a person being a bully and the admins weren't doing anything.

Do you know about this one:

Or this one:

RE: Hello
I haven't noticed that Siblings has been added. Thanks for letting me know. I'm not too keen on the new editing. I always forget to look and then I'll click agree and not completely see what I need to do and/or change. I liked it better when it came in my email because I saved all of those in case something came up later about them.

I agree about the Find a Grave groups. I quit checking in all that much because of the fussing going on. It seems like a lot of people have gotten a way from what this website is about.

Hello. What does unrecorded mean? That the burial is not listed in the Cemetery Transcription? I am just curious...thanks.
