I was never interested in cemetery's, headstones, or anything related to death until the passing of my Father in Law, my Mother and my Son all within a six month period. My Son & Mother died only 12 hours apart, the worst 12 hours of my life. It was at this time when I tried to locate information on the Cemetery where my son was interred, that I stumbled upon the Find A Grave site. I found the site fascinating and was hooked on it in no time. It got to the point where I decided to document all of the burials in very old Cemetery in my town that was forgotten by just about everyone. It gave me a great feeling knowing that these people will now be remembered by many.
If you need photos taken in my area, the Jersey Shore, feel free to ask. I've done it before and found it to be a very rewarding experience. I had to try to locate a cemetery that was deep in the woods and rarely visited by anyone. It took me 3 days to find it, but I was able to get the pictures that were requested.
That's the short story of my FAG experience. It has been fun and has helped me to get through some rough times. I hope you enjoy the memorials on the site & that you will participate in the forums. They can be a great aid in helping people work through their grief after the loss of a loved one.
Thank you for taking the photo Hi Al, I want to thank you so very much for going back to the cemetery today to take the photo of the marker for my dear lifelong friend Ellen. I live over 3 hours away and am disabled so chances are I probably won't ever be able to make it to the gravesite. She passed away suddenly at home alone and is missed so very much. Life seems so very short and we never know when it will be the last time we speak to someone. It is a nice marker there that her siblings gave her. She never married. God bless you for doing this. Happy New Year. Cordially, Bunny Heymach
Thank-You Al, Thank-You so much. This info is helping me straighten out my Errickson tree.They spelled the Errickson name so many ways!I was wondering if Matilda belonged in it and somehow I had missed her, but it looks like she doesn't.I would not have know that if you had not uncovered her immigration information.Thank- You so very much!!I really appreciate that information.
