I first became interested in researching my family tree about 14 years ago. I was able to get a good deal of information on my father's family. But my mother's family was proving to be a problem, due to a genealogy nemesis, fire in the courthouse.
Thanks to Find-A-Grave, I have located my maternal grandparents and great-grandparents!!!! thanks F-A-G!!
I hope to go to Nashville soon for a more 'hands on' approach to the research to supplement what I've already found.
I love visiting old cemeteries (and ghosts towns), but never thought that I would find a place to post some of the photos I've taken. I hope that I can help others like some have helped me in the past.
I have added many memorials of photos that I've taken while wandering through cemeteries in the Tacoma, WA area.
***And I am more than willing to transfer any memorial that I have created, as long as it isn't also a member of my own family..... all you have to do is ask*****
Any photos of headstones that I have taken, feel free to use.
Any photos of people that I have attached to any memorial please asked first before you use.
Families I am researching, all from Missouri/Illinois/Tennessee area: Heffernan, Charleville, Panchot, Timper, Gerard, Aubuchon, Hynes.
RE: raphael panchot Ralpael panchot if not a name we have in our cemetery. the ID# belongs to a different Panchot. If this is the one you want, give me the correct name and I will need your ID # to transfer this you. Ruth Ann Meyer
RE: Charles and Victoria Metzger headstone photo Thanks for the information. Since the one in Valle Cemetery is older than mine, I've deleted mine. For some strange reason, I didn't get an E-Mail and didn't find your message until I actually checked my messages in FindAGrave. Rita French Bell
