|Bio and Links|
|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.

|Alma Stone||RE: Thank You|
Your very Welcome. I appreciate your quick response in adding the info. I feel like I'm over-whelming a few of you with so many obits.
|Lynn Strahm||Joseph and Nellie Swingle|
I came across this page today when I realized that I had no idea where my grandparents were buried. Nellie is my maternal grandmother. Joseph is my maternal step-grandfather. He and Nellie raised my mother and the son they had together.
I am just more curious about this service and the people behind it who does it. I haven't been to this cemetery since they passed away.

Hi Ed...I am also a member of Find A Grave. I am helping a close friend try to find her Alexander family. I see that you have a few memorials of them in Northern Ireland, which is where we trace her family back to. We are looking for Jonathan Alexander, wife named Eliza...in Shankill, Belfast, Antrim. We found a baptism for their daughter, Sarah Alexander, dated Feb. 24, 1797 but we need to find more on this family. Sarah marries a man named Francis Wallace in Antrim and they end up going to Lancashire, England for a few years, then Ontario Canada and then the US. We would like very much to find more on Sarah's parents and siblings. Do you have any information on this family? We would appreciate any ideas you might have...we are paying for a site in Ireland by the month and not getting very far. Ideas?
Thank you so much,Betsy Neil

Thank you so very much for the transfers of the Pitts. I am stuck happily in massive research.
Do you know if the remains in Cottonwood were removed to Hills Ferry. I have the obit of Anthony Pfitzer, he died Dec 14, 1891, age 59, his burial was Cottonwood. Do you know if its possible he was re-buried in Hills Ferry? He's the father of a few Pfitzer's you have.

Ed: Do you know if all of these people are related? They are from the same Plot 108. Do you know who the parents are: Agnes Boal and ?

|Carol Behringer||FAG 79634818 - Ollie Mae Sinks Hamilton|
Concerning the bio on the above memorial, the #47220194 is shown: with the comment George Washington Hamilton (unknown as to his death date and burial) George was my grandfather's brother.
Am researching George W. Hamilton and have not had any definitive (or proven) luck. The George W. Hamilton I am looking for is son of Drew Alexander Hamilton & Georgie Ann Sanders. Could you possibly tell me if this might be correct?
|Sandi Costa||Manuel Mederes Garcia #39197577|
Thank you so much for taking care and transferring my grandfather to me. I am the family historian. I will take care of him now.
