Hi Everyone -

Back when I was 8 years old, my grandpa,
Paul Joseph Peter Allen
, helped me make a family tree for a school project. Back then we didn't get that far...LOL. In 1999, I found that project and started working on it again. Now I've got over 20,000 people connected to my tree. I think my grandpa would be proud of what I've accomplished, thus my name, ♥♥ My Labor of Love ♥♥!!!

I'm a "Genealogy Pack Rat" and it's time that I shared my findings. I hope I was able to help someone with this information.

Take Care & God Bless -
(a mom of 3 cutie pies)


My goal is to attain what was once lost or forgotten. To investigate and then document my finding to further an ancestry or find a loved one.

But most of all, making sure everyone is remembered no matter how short or long they were on this earth or what accomplishments they did or didn't do, that they are remembered and their story is told!

First and foremost, you must be related to that individual‼‼‼ (ex: grandfather, grandmother, father, mother, uncle, aunt, cousin, etc...) I really don't care how many generations back, you could be a 4th cousin 5x removed, as long as the lineage is there!

If you meet that criteria, please use the Edit tab on the individual that you would like transferred over to your care. Then select "Suggest a correction or provide additional information". Please include your Find A Grave ID #, relationship to the individual, and that you would like this memorial transferred to you.

I'll transfer anyone that isn't in my family tree. But if it happens to be someone that is, closest relationship to that person wins ☺!

I think it's selfish for people to take possession over a photo taken, so please feel free to use any photos that I post.

I'm requesting transfer of the following memorials: 80729802 and 80730241. These are my 1st cousins 2x removed and I am in the process of adding additional family members.

Thank you!

Harry Gerrit Welmerink, Find A Grave Memorial# 134601929

I have submitted a birth date for Harry Gerrit Welmerink twice, but you have rejected the suggestion twice. His Find A Grave memorial number is 134601929. His World War I draft registration card which he signed says that he was born on September 20, 1885, but his Find A Grave site says that he was born on February 2, 1887, which appears to be incorrect. If you have an membership, here is the link to that draft registration card:

He is my great uncle and would like to have his birth date accurately displayed on his Find A Grave site. If you have a better record than the World War I card, please let me know. If not, please make the change to February 2, 1887. Thank you.

Memorial #71181526
Is Ferdinand T. Ems (memorial #71181526) in your lineage? If so, how are you related, and do you have other information about him other than the death certificate that you posted? Thanks.

Hello Brandi,
RE: Record added: Dec 08, 2012
Find A Grave Memorial# 101887650
Name: "MINNIE E."

I am working on my ancestry and came across a lovely site you have posted for a Minnie E." I am looking for one of my paternal GGF's wives, also named Minnie. Can't tell from your entry if the two headstones which appear entirely different are for the same person -- or perhaps a family plot?

Also can you tell me what the info: "Note: Service date: 06/27/1911"means?

If she died Dec. 3, 1884, was she not buried until June 27, 1911? Or does that have another meaning?

Sorry to ask you so many questions. I'm sure you're very busy. I'm new to this reading the information. It's very helpful. And has helped me find other fascinating information about my ancestors.
Thank you so much in advance,
Adrienne Parks

RE: Nellie Persis Tatroe (née Sisson) Blain
Wow! Great work and thank you! I am not directly related. However, I have been in contact with his great grandson and may request a transfer later if he wants...

Baker family in Spring Hill Cemetery
Hello: I want to thank you for your wonderful work in Spring Lake Cemetery. You have listed several of my Baker relatives. I have added photos to seven of those listings. I am going to request that you transfer management to me through your described procedure of the listings of ten of my relatives in Spring Lake Cemetery so that I can add extensive additional biographical information and more detailed links. Once again I am very grateful for your selfless efforts. Eric Baker, Durham, North Carolina

Many thanks for the great photo of him. The one I found in the bio online book was terrible!
