Suddenly all my Ancestor's are behind me. "Be Still" they say. "Watch And Listen. You are the result of the Love of Thousands."|
We are the chosen. In each family there is one who seems called to find the ancestors. To put flesh on their bones and make them live again, to tell the family story and to feel that somehow they know and approve. Doing genealogy is not a cold gathering of facts but, instead, breathing life into all who have gone before. We are the story tellers of the tribe. All tribes have one. We have been called as it were by our genes. ~~Unknown
Genealogy is my passion. It has been for 39 years. I believe it shows in my work over the years and in a book I wrote. That's why I chose Timeless to go by almost 13 years ago. My genealogy is timeless & never ends. I'm very proud of all I've accomplished. I wouldn't change a thing, not my name or my work. It's been fascinating meeting so many family, friends, searching libraries & court houses in many different states & visiting so many resting places of our loved ones. I've found we are all searching for the same thing, our roots.
Please do not post cut out obituaries from newspapers in the photo section of my memorials!
Obituary's per FAG--
"Can I add an obituary to my interment listing?
Please do NOT add newspaper obituary scans. The photo section is reserved for headstone/grave photos and possibly a portrait photo of the person, if that photo is owned by you. Do not copy and post photographs from obituary or funeral home websites (unless you personally are the photographer), as they are protected by copyright law."
Please note-I have shown what I do with obit's to FAG Management. I have received approval from Management for many years. I do not add any photo's from the obits because they do not belong to me, I'm not the photographer. All names of the living are removed, per FAG rules. Death certificates are ok, they are documents. There's a place for the obituaries. Send them & I will post to where they belong in the biography & will give you credit. As for posting info to the biography section, I'm thrilled to post whatever you send.
Feel free to use my gravestone photo's. I'll take this time to thank all of you who have given me such kind words of encouragement to continue. I'll be going to Barger Cemetery sometime this summer. I've added a lot of memorials there & I plan on hitting a few others in Pike Co. this summer that I've added a lot of memorials to & haven't gotten there to photograph. I hope not to offend anyone, that's not my purpose, but when I create a memorial in Pike/Ross Counties, I'm going to get photographs. If you've placed any on my memorials, they will be moved down. Also it's against Find A Grave rules to fill up a memorials photo section.
If I've made a duplicate, it wasn't intentional. I'll gladly remove. I'm not perfect but then neither are you. A polite heads up is all that's necessary for me to correct an error.
Don't post obituaries/bio's to flower/note section or correct me there. Send an Edit. I will make the changes. Per Find A Grave, "biographical information and obituaries are not to be included in a virtual flower."
"The goal at Find A Grave should not be to manage all of your family members. If you have information to add, you should suggest it to the current manager and they should make the changes."
