I am primarily interested in researching our family tree. I have been a member of Find-a-Grave for four years and have enjoyed creating and adding to memorials for the branches of our family. Through Find-a-grave I have actually been able to find a few 'surprise relatives'!
I am in no race to get many names to manage; I just want to obtain our family, so we can add the stories and connections as a family can do best.
I also try to give back to other researchers as best I can. I was an indexer for the 1940 CENSUS, which was released in 2012. It is fun to index, and I would recommend it to anyone who loves history! I digitize newspaper collections for California Digital Archives, and any others that need help.
I have researched family branches for my Mulberry Tree, Davis Tree, Rhoades, Grundstrom, Moss, McIntosh, McKenzie, Campbell, McSweeney, Floyd, Harper and Riley, as well as many others for friends.
Updating information The procedure for the past couple of years has been for the requester to enter birth, death and parent/spouse link information directly via the edit tab. Written message items such as adding bio material, changing (cemetery) location and such that have no drop down boxes of their own continue as always.
Bagleys I linked the Reverend to his wife. I am not related to this family but created the pages for someone who was family. If you are family to the Bagleys I would be more than pleased to transfer them to you.
Sanford Toll Hi there, thanks for bringing to my attention that I forgot to put the newspaper articles in for Sanford Toll! I put them in, they should be available now. He is not in my family tree, I just came across the info while researching. I'm sorry I don't know anything more about his family. Pam
Thank you for the wonderful letter! I enjoyed hearing of your genealogy work. That too is a hobby of mine so I know how enjoyable it is to get any information to piece the puzzles together.
I also located the resting place of Anne Moss in the military section. Fortunately / unfortunately, depending how you look at it, that section is under ground reparations. All the headstones are removed and the grounds being leveled etc... Not sure it will be done before the snow falls here. I could take a picture of the grounds under construction for you if you like.
If you'd like the full resolution pictures, I'd be happy to email them to you, send your email to Topref@gmail.com.
