I am glad to share any information about the memorials that I manage. I have personal knowledge about many of them and welcome questions and correspondence.

My intent is to share family history (not just mine) so that it's not forgotten. Often I will ask for a transfer, add information and links and then transfer it back. I love it when bio's and obit's are included and families are linked!

I LOVE my old photos of relatives. I share them freely to help keep their memory alive for future generations. If you use any of my family photos, acknowledging the source isn't necessary, but it would be appreciated and keeps us all in touch.

Thank you to the Find-A-Grave folks who are responsible managers and take good care of their memorials with pleasure. A big thank you to the folks who accidentally make a duplicate and correct it when brought to their attention.


Here's an email excerpt from fellow graver, Alicia Roundy Houston. I love this! She nailed a trait that so many of us share:

...after a couple of attempts (and subsequent diversions that kept me sidetracked for hours and hours)

Shirley M. Strickland
Hi Jen, has the name Sylvia Marie May ever come up in your research regarding Joseph Emanuel May and Minnie Lee Walker Grooms?

Robert Kirkland
He was my gr-uncle, brother to my gr-mother, Amy Kirkland Sweeney, who died in a car-train collision 9/1935. He was married to a Rewis lady who preceded him in death. Her parents lived in Alva, Lee Co.,Fl. I have not been able to find any info re: her first name, parents name, or when and where she was buried etc. There is also no record or marker to indicate where Robert was buried in Ft. Denaud cemetery. Any info will be appreciated.

Memorial # 147865889
Hi Jen,
I will be glad to add the entire obit for M. Geiger, Memorial#147865889. She is of no relation to me, so I am going to transfer her memorial to you for maintenance. I live in Lee Co. Fla. and like to place for memorials for those who do not have a memorial. We need to remember and register those who have passed before us. I love this site.

Hi Jen,

How did you add the links for Hubert's foster parents and his brother? I'd like to do the same adding him as the foster son of Geo and Eva Whitehead but I don't know how.

Elizabeth Ann HUGUELY Lyon
Hello Jen,

I was just wondering if you had any death or burial info for Elizabeth Ann who married Anderson Morgan LYON. I have created a memorial for her in hopes of finding out what happened to her.

Thank you so much.

Let me look through my notes. If I remember correctly, it is still intact. Will advise.
