|I have met many wonderful people on Find A Grave. Thanks to all the contributors for all you have done and continue to do. Thanks everyone for all the suggested corrections, and extra information provided to me. |
Unfortunately, there have been a number of individuals who do not understood that we are volunteers, who have been rude, who have been otherwise abusive or who have been frankly bizarre. Because of this, I will follow the Find A Grave guidelines. It is about the hunt, not the numbers. But dealing with some of the Find A Grave members and interlopers, I have learned to follow the guidelines.
UPDATES AND CORRECTIONS:
I am always happy to to update or correct memorials but PLEASE use the "EDIT" tab on individual memorials to suggest information corrections or additions. This sends a direct link to the memorial as well as your own profile page. If a request is left on my profile page it will be ignored and deleted. I just don't have the time to search for the individual memorial and then make the update.
If you discover that I have made a mistake or created a duplicate later than one you created, please use the Edit tab and send me the correction and I will delete the duplicate immediately. And please be nice. A simple request is all I ask. I strive to have my memorials as accurate as possible, but I am human and I will make mestakes.
I will only transfer listings of one's direct relatives within four generations as defined in Find A Grave Guidelines. This would be your siblings, parents, grandparents, great-grandparents. Simply having someone in your family tree is not grounds for a management transfer request. Consider using the Virtual Cemetery feature. It's an easy way to collect all of your ancestors either in one big VC or you can have several VCs for various family lines.
What calls us to find the ancestors? It goes beyond a simple curiosity. We are taken over, compelled, as if possessed by something bigger than us that is begging to be revealed. There is one of us in most every family, called to be the scribe. I am but one of the many in the long line of storytellers of our clan. Like others I am called to gather and assemble the ancestorsóto breathe life back into them as far back as we can reach. We take what we find and chronicle the facts of their existence, remembering their names and who they were and what they did. They are the sum of who we are, for without them, we would not exist. We greet those who came before us, restoring their place in the familial line. We scribe their stories and their histories. We search for them in public libraries, county records, and weed-filled or well-kept cemeteries. We comb through yellowed newspapers, family archives, and lovely old letters and photo albums. We find them! And in finding themówe find ourselves.

Are you related to the Dunsmoor's ?
|Kim Hartwick||Leonard Burdick|
I am very interested in managing Leonard Burdick's memorial. My Great Uncle, brother to my Grandmother Ruby. He was a wonderful man who told great stories to my brother and I each night that he visited. He never had children though he married twice. His second wife was the widow of his brother Jesse Burdick. They were friends for many years and married in their last years, very happy. I would love to keep his memory going.
|Laura Shultz Kinsey||Minnie Myrtle Johnson|
Hi Ed, I was wondering if she's related to you? She had a brother Robert, sister Cora and brother David. Her mother was Melissa. Minnie's maiden name was Dalton. I'm not sure of her mother Melissa's maiden name and I don't know Minnie's and her siblings fathers first name. Her mother was widowed by 1900. Since the children were born after 1880. The 1890 census was destroyed in a fire. So I have not been able to find any other documentation between 1880 and 1900 for this family. If there is a family connection. Would you be able to help me fill in the gaps.
Thanks for your time.
|Don Modlin||Mary Livina Dunsmoor|
Mary was my 3 rd great aunt,her parents are Alless Dunsmoor and Aria Ann Hoover my 3rd great grand parents. I'm still searching to see if Mary and her husband George D Dunsmore are related before marriage.Or if it's 2 different Dunsmoor's. Don
