Bio and Links
Bio Photo I am a retired R.N., who was lucky to have several family members who were very active in collecting and preserving our family histories. Now that my husband and I have the time to do so, we enjoy helping others (and ourselves!) with photo's and other information. Please let me know if you would like a memorial transfered to you, as I have added some that that have not been been added previously in hopes that someone might discover a relative that they had not known about. Please feel free to use any photo's taken by me for this site for your families history. Maybe I'll even be able to meet some new cousins, no matter how distant!Good luck in your searches!Cindy (and Bruce)My family (a few major) are Olander, Simmons,Craig, Rosenberger, Shaull, Sutton. So many exciting threads to trace and discover! I use, also.

Hi Cynthia, I'm making a scrapbook for my nephew's son's graduation and seen that you created a grave memorial for Basil McGill.
James Martin McGill is my nephew's great grand father.

Concerning the memorial for Leander G. Adams. I am wondering if you could remove the "Father" stone picture? Then the cemetery picture will reappear, since a family member has added his photo.
Thanks very much, famfindr

RE: Elizabeth White Babbit
Hi, no I didn't have it removed.

I just wanted to let you know Find A Grave policy about it.

Truly the best thing to do is not touch a stone at all, but I also have a hard time with wanting to preserve the grave vs having an unknown person. I feel bad if I can't help and figure out who the person is.

But you just have to be careful because someone might take offense because it's really against fags policy and they can have those photos removed and admins can contact you about it.

Don't stress over the ones already done.

Have a great day!!

Hi, Thank you for adding the photo for her memorial. But, I caution you about adding "Chalked Stones" on Findagrave

Some people will contact admins to have them (chalked stone photos) removed and could get you in trouble with admins by doing that to the stones.

I'm not going to report anything I just wanted to alert you to this in case it happens you will know why.

Have a great night! Thanks again for adding the photo to my ancestor

This is what is listed in the faq's about chalking stones:

Reporting chalking: Photos of chalked, floured, shaving creamed, wire brushed, or otherwise altered headstones are strictly not allowed and are subject to removal when reported and/or when spotted by an administrator.

If the chalked photos appear on memorials that YOU have created and maintain, then you can ask to have them removed if you object to them, at which time they will be deleted. In such a case, report the photos to Use the same email address to report members who are continually posting chalked headstone photos. [Top]

Photo of John E. Smith's grave
Thank you so much for the photo of my great grand uncle's grave (and his wife's). I am documenting the brothers and sisters of my paternal great grandfather, and your photo has verified their relationship. Most of the brothers and sisters are near Marshalltown, and it would be interesting to determine how John wound up 200 miles from the rest. Again, I am grateful to you.
