|Bio and Links|
I have been involved in researching my family history for the past 25 years. When I found Find A Grave I considered it a wonderful new tool and now I'd like to contribute to this virtual cemetery with bio's and photos of my own beloved family members.|
Many of the memorials I manage connect to me in some way. That means I really want to talk to you if you connect too! Feel free to contact me through EDIT - Suggest... - or directly by e-mail.
My trees include a big connection to Norway and the names: Norby/e, Johnson (on both sides - oh joy!), Lien, Wigen, Nummedal, Behrents and Daehlin.
My husband's trees (Richard Ferris) connect to Scotland/Ireland, early America, Sweden & Norway. Names include: Ferris, Pillsbury, Donaldson and Thorson.
I'm currently working on a website with our family trees. It is free and easy to register. (All you need is a name and your choice of username and password.) If you have a name in one of my virtual cemeteries, there may be much more in my site. Please come visit!
Pet Peeve Section:
1. My husband and I travel to cemeteries, sometimes long distances, only to take photos of relatives' graves, and then we snap a few more that are nearby. I use Photoshop to enhance every photo. However, I have just a small camera and am not a professional photographer. If you take a photo that is distinctly better, I'm willing to remove mine, but have the common courtesy to let me know. And if it is just a little bit better - give me a break! Don't use up a second of the precious 5 photo limit to post basically the same photo. I post usually a family plot photo and an inscription photo if necessary to read it. That should be enough. I've seen memorials that have 4 or 5 grave photos because they couldn't decide which one they liked best.
2. I am so sad that managers of memorials interpret "guidelines" as "rules". Memorials should rest with family, regardless of the relationship. If there is a controversy, then use the guidelines to interpret whether someone is more closely related than someone else. Do you really want to become a Fallen Graver and leave 50,000 memorials to someone else, equally unrelated? When someone sends mean edit, I always, ALWAYS ask if they are related. I am eager to transfer memorials!

Connie, thank you so much for the tombstone photo for William Slack. He was a Civil War Veteran. I appreciate you taking the time to photograph his tombstone.

Thank you for the photos and GPS
|Martha Jane (Schliesser) Hicks||RE: Photo for Synneva Borsheim/Burshem|
Ha! I know what it's like trying to cajole family members to hang in there and look " a little longer" or find "one more." I haven't done that in mud and rain yet though! Thanks again!

I can't tell you how excited I am to finally see a picture of Synneva's grave and scenes at the cemetery!!! Thank you SO MUCH!!! You made my day!!! It's a fabulous enhancement to her memorial.
|Mark Vernon||RE: William Evans & Jessie Constance Norby Evans|
I will look forward to seeing their updated pages. I enjoy see these pages grow both from added information and transfers!
I'll be back in the Caneadea area in late August and will make a note to look closer at Laura Chandler's death date. I went ahead and added photos to the Clarence Chandler memorial that is on Find a Grave and made some edits and a link request to his mother Laura.

Hi Connie, I took photos of the stone for Laura and her son Clarence Chandler. I didn't see a stone nearby for David or Lewis Chandler. Someone else has taken a photo for David Chandler and his memorial says he is on the same stone as Ann. The Clarence Chandler on Find a Grave in this cemetery has dates that are very different than what is on the stone, so I'm not sure if there are two Clarence Chandlers in the cemetery. I can add pictures for Clarence, but wondering if another memorial should be made for him or if I should add the picture to the existing memorial. What are your thoughts?
