|Bio and Links|
I accidentally came upon the Find A Grave website! I was amazed at how much new direction it has provided me with on my genealogy search. I started my genealogy research about 30 years ago just as a hobby, but it now has become more of a 2nd occupation for me. |
I love being able to help people with their research and at the same time it helps me with mine. I have been adding my family members info to FindAGrave in the hope that their story will endure.
I try to ensure that the memorials I add are correct! That is one of my pet peeves! I want my memorials to be more than merely a beginning date and an end date in someone's life! I want to paint a broader picture of that person. Since this is a living memorial, I want it to be just that! To show that the person did live, have a family, etc. So, I try to only add a memorial once all the facts have been verified as accurate and when I have a short bio of the person. Sometimes, there is nothing more than a birth date and death date and that is all.

Hi Pat, I will check Arborville sometime this spring to see if I can locate the stones you requested.

I noticed today the token and kind words you left on my granddaughter's mermorial (Michala Cheek) in January. It was kind of you. We miss her so much.
Vicky Wiemer, her grandma

I am sorry, but I do not.
|Graver Gal||RE: John Scott & Sarah (Unger) Davis in Morgan Memorial Park Cemetery|
I probably did and then lost a bunch of photos in a crash on my computer.
I guess I will have to make it back over there. This has happened twice to me. I can't even remember the other cemetery that happened.
The weather is getting nicer, I will be getting out more soon.

If you will delete yours, I'll transfer mine to you for management. I'm not related to the LaCroix family.

Thanks so much for the heads-up on "Hatz's" I'm glad you noticed the error and contacted me. It has been corrected!
Glad to link. Would you like transfers of your husband's cousins. I would be happy to give them to their family.
I transferred the memorials to you. Glad they are now in relatives hands.
|Christina||RE: Leo & Flossie Scratcher in Mennonite Cemetery|
I am sorry but I am not related to them. I was searching for a gravestone to fulfill a request and came across the Scratcher's marker. I like to create memorials if not yet done so, so other researchers or family members can find them.

Hi, Pat. I went to Arborville Cemetery yesterday. It looked to be about the only warm (48 degrees)day we were going to have for awhile. The cemetery is only 2 miles from my home so is easy to get to. Lloyd Blair is not buried close to his parents. His headstone is next to his Plessinger grandparents, Joseph and Jane in a different section of the cemetery. I added pictures for Joseph and Jane. The other two siblings are not close to the parents either - at least I didn't see them close by. Most of the Blairs listed in the cemetery are all next to each other. I found them first. After I found Lloyd I must admit I quit walking. There is no directory for this cemetery (I'm working on it!) and it is rather large so lots of walking. I always take pictures of all family with one name, which I did yesterday. Most of them had already been added, including Minerva and Ralph. I didn't see their headstones close to their parents or the Plessinger grandparents. The next nice day I will check it out and see how far away they are. I did add a memorial for a Ralph Plessinger, born and died April 7, 1902. I will let you figure out where he belongs. His headstone was one row in back of Joseph and Jane Plessinger. His dates don't fit in with their children. I will transfer the memorial to you if you want then you can link with whomever.
