Bio Photo Hello.

My name is Lisa, and I have been transcribing and photographing cemeteries for about 10 years now. Thanks to a Random Acts of Genealogical Kindness volunteer, I found this site. Finally! A place to put my work.

I record cemeteries to help preserve a record of our long, lost loved ones. At a cemetery, years ago, I noticed that several of the 'older' stones would soon be unreadable. I thought that it would be sad if at some point, that person couldn't be found when a genealogist came looking for them.

I don't think that they should be forgotten. I enjoy knowing that I can help someone locate that special 'someone' that they have been looking for. Or, to help them see their loved one's final resting place.

I am only human, and I make my fair share of mistakes. So, if you find an error, please email me, and I will do my best to correct it.

If you have information that you think needs to be added to a memorial, or if it needs to be updated, I will do my best to help out. I will not be bothered in the slightest if you want to add photos to the memorial.

Happy Hunting!

From Find A Grave FAQ:
Transfer requests should be for direct relatives within four generations, this would be your great-grandparents, grandparents, parents, or siblings. Bulk surname requests should not be made.

For Transfer requests & correction please use the "suggest correction" feature to submit.
Please do not use my message page for request.
Be sure to include your member ID # and the memorial ID #, as well as how you are related to the individual).


{{{I RECORD ALL THE STONES IN A CEMETERY. THERE ARE STONE MARKERS THAT HAVE LIVING PEOPLE ON THEM. SUCH AS: ONLY ONE SPOUSE HAS PASSED AWAY OR SOMEONE PURCHASED THE STONE IN ADVANCE, ALONG WITH THEIR PLOT.

IF THERE IS NOT A DEATH DATE, THERE ARE MANY EXPLANATIONS:

* THEY ARE NOT DECEASED
* THE DEATH DATE WAS NOT PUT ON THE STONE AFTER THEY PASSED
* THEY REMARRIED AND WERE NOT BURIED WITH THIS PARTICULAR SPOUSE
* THEY MOVED AND WERE BURIED ELSEWHERE
* THEY PASSED AWAY WITH NO LIVING RELATIVES OR FRIENDS TO PASS ON THEIR BURIAL WISHES

AND MANY MORE.}}}

Harriett "Bence" Memorial# 28876414
This memorial is named for Harriett "Bence" which apparently preserves a transcription error by those who indexed the death certificate. The death certificate shows, and her family history is clear, that the surname is "Bruce".
Best,
AW

I checked Edwards Cemetery, and Leroy Thomas still has his memorial under Rev R L Thomas, with his military marker. Pat

GRAVE DEATH DATE
Hi, Could you please change Frank Weston's birth date to 1862? His marker is correct. He is my Great Grandfather. He is buried in Willow Springs Cemetery, Howell Co., Missouri.

Thanks, Ernie
