Bio and Links
Edmund Burke said "People will not look forward to posterity, who never look back to their ancestors." I do believe that is true and have been dabbling in genealogy research on my husband's and my families for about 40 years plus I have a library science background. Between the two and the love of solving puzzles, I love research of any kind. When I found this site I was excited because it is easy to use, has a wealth of information on ancestral burials, plus it's free! I love this site and am on it every day searching or adding information. I will keep working and seeking more information to help our family trees along, plus help others as I can.
Thanks for this wonderful website!

P.S. Please use the "Edit" button to add obituaries, biographies, etc. I will gladly add them!

may I please use a pic ?
Hi - may I please use the marker pic for Julie Taaffe/ Find A Grave Memorial# 84888897 in my family tree ? There's nothing commercial about it. Many thanks - Jo

Added Henry and Mary Caroline Land to Henry J Schmidt. Do we have FG #'s for them. I presume not.

Thank you for the Transfer of Uncle Alden's memorial.
I've done some editing and when I have more information I will add that also.
Even though they lived in the western part of the country I do remember both Uncle Alden and Aunt Myrna

RE: Murphy, Nancy
Hi Lois,

Thanks for updating Nancy's memorial. If you wanted to add links to her parents, her father is Find A Grave Memorial# 92669277 and her mother is Find A Grave Memorial# 92669274. Michael G(ilbert) Murphy (Find A Grave Memorial# 92669272) is another one of their children.

Something else I noticed is that there are several Murphy entries in Bethel Cemetery that look to have had a slight problem when you imported them to Find A Grave (such as Nancy's mother, and brother, Michael). The last name has a comma attached (Murphy,). Not a big deal, but probably worth correcting at some point.

Lastly, as with Nancy, death index entries and or death certificates for Nancy's parents and brother can be found at the West Virginia Archives site (, if you wish to add them and/or check the dates. I noticed Nancy's parents both have different death dates than what is currently on their memorials.

Hope this is helpful. Keep up the great work you are doing in getting memorials added!

Best regards,
