I want to state clearly that anyone is free to use the photos that I take for any nonprofit purpose.|
I enjoy genealogy. I consider myself fairly new at it. I was introduced in 2008 by a phone call, out of the blue, from a cousin I didn't know I had. She was researching our family and found me. We share a great grandfather. I was intrigued, and have been researching my family ever since. I find that I can spend all my time researching. There is no end to the information I want to know.
I research online. I was a computer person (I make my living as an author of computer books), before I started genealogy research. I had seen Find a Grave, but was focused elsewhere and didn't pay attention. Recently (May 2010), I stopped and really looked at Find A Grave. When I realized what it was, I became a fan. I had been meaning to photo a family grave at the local cemetery, so I took some photo requests with me. I discovered I enjoyed being in the cemetery. It is lovely and peaceful. The headstones are interesting. And my body appreciates moving more, rather than sitting in front of the computer all day. So, I created pages from photos I took at the local cemetery, but moved away before could photo the entire cemetery.
I enjoy several different aspects of this research. I enjoy the puzzle, of course. I enjoy sharing information. To me, an important part of the research is making it available to help others with their research. I also enjoy the community of genealogy, cousins, and Find A Grave.
I am quite serious about accuracy. I only enter facts that I am very sure about. If anyone finds errors, let me know, but be prepared to say why you believe my entry is in error. Also, I love to add information if someone offers good data. And, I have no problem with transferring a page to someone who is more closely related to the person.
I also maintain a website providing my Russell family research at the URL below.

Hi Janet. Thank you for the information on Mrs. Addy. Her memorial has been up dated and the picture that you posted looks great. Take care and have a wonderful week. Patrick
|Kathy Jennings Brown||Ike Bland|
Oops, I just noticed you posted a plot number, which will be much easier.
|Kathy Jennings Brown||Ike Balnd, Mount Olive Cemetery|
Please correct the spelling to Bland so that his ancestors can find him. I posted a death certificate, and it's fairly obvious the name is misspelled. I will look for this man's headstone the next time I'm at the cemetery, which without a plot number, will require a trip to the office, I'm sure. Thanks, Kathy

Thanks for the additional information. In seeking to link Dorothy to her father, William, I found an existing memorial for Dorothy (unknown burial) - 70653069. I noted the link in the bio, but will not be taking any action to have them combined. Additionally, I do not have any family relationship to Dorothy.

Hi Janet. Thank you for the pictures.
I see you have some Worrel memorials in your virtual cemeteries. I don't recognize the names, but I am looking for the parents of my Great Grandfather Emanuel Worrel (1868-1941) wife Charity. He had a possible brother named Christopher Worrel wife Sarah Alice. If you can help thanks. DMWorrel

Hi Janet. Thank you for entering Riley & Bertha (Worrel) Chrisman. I have been searching for them for many years. Bertha is the sister of my Grandfather Homer E. Worrel. This is what Find A Grave is all about. Thank you. DMWorrel

Thanks again for the headstone photos and quick edits for both Amie & Harley Smith's memorials. Your efforts are what makes Find A Grave such a valuable resource.

You're welcome. I also added his wife's photo and they were buried with some Staley's that seemed to be family and am trying to add them. They are difficult to read.
|Cindy Cornwell McCachern||Thanks|
Also, thanks for the photo of George Cornwell's tombstone.
