I discovered Find A Grave while searching for the grave of my grandfather's brother. This simple little search sent me on a mission to search for my ancestors and get some of my family history on Find A Grave. Once I got hooked on genealogy, I decided I could help others by adding names to the site so that sent me onto my new "hobby" - photographing graves, and now I am totally addicted. I hope my work on Find A Grave will help others in their search or allow them to "visit" a loved one's grave. |
I'm not one of those people who think they give a prize for managing the most memorials. If you have any connection to someone that I have created a memorial for, I will gladly transfer it, as long as they are not in my tree.
The Bismarck Tribune did a very nice article on my cemetery project a while back. Click Here to view the article.
I have set up a Tribalpages family tree. Click on the link below to view it.
If I have taken a photograph of your ancestor's tombstone and it is of poor quality (shadows/overgrown with grass/hard to read/etc), please let me know and I will see what I can do about taking a better one. It is hard to take good photographs of all the markers when I am at a cemetery as the angle of the sun is often poor the stones don't photograph well.
If I have helped you in your search, please return the favor and "pay it forward" and do your part to help out someone else.

So sorry for your loss! I hope that you have a lot of her genes - being 101 is quite an accomplishment.
Her memorial has been transferred to you.
