NOV 6-9 Renee Brown Dixon flew in from D.C. to meet with her family members in Williamsburg County, SC (found through extensive research and confirming DNA test results) and to present to our Geni Club on Nov 8. She gave an amazing presentation. We went to see Miss Nell at Three Rivers in Hemingway, (and with 3 others) surveyed a forgotten cemetery just outside of Kingstree and had time together with friends and club members learning about the benefits of DNA testing and how to analyze test results.
Renee's powerpoint handout is now posted on the Grand Strand Genealogy Club's website for anyone to view, see:

I am an active member of The Grand Strand Genealogy Club held in Chapin Library, Myrtle Beach, SC. Meeting time 10:15 am 1st floor conference room.
Next Speaker Dec 13: Charlene Carson. Finding your Roots (Henry Louis Gates, Jr.) Season 1.

REMEMBER TO BE KIND to one another. It's hard to lose a living friend. Show the same respect and care to the living as to the deceased.

Please be aware of the "edit button" on your profile page.

RESEARCHING: Rogerson, Clemons, Godwin, Porter, Wiehrs, Asendorf, Wittschen, White, Lancaster, Tarver. Husband's side: Perhala, Zima, Kuchta.

As a volunteer with Horry County's Historic Cemetery Registration Project our goal is to gather information for county records. We also offer our photos to findagrave.

Many thanks to these Volunteers with Horry County Historic Cemetery Registration Project:
Susan Perhala (in the field)
Rich Ryals (in the field)
Jody Mishoe (in the field)
Tawnya Gray (orig. coordinator of volunteers)
Kathy Smith (posting info)
Chris Plaisance (posting info)
Johnny McKelvey (posting info)
Michael Johnson (in the field)
Patti Burns (posting info)
Ann Phillips (posting info)

Thanks also to Roger and Karen Lambert, Don Pigate, Barbara Lehman, Tawnya Gray, Robin Pellici Moore, Deborah Spidle, Dot Harcum, and Fred Ricks for guidance and patience.

Horry County is proud to have received South Carolina's "2011 J. Mitchell Graham Memorial Award, the competition's top honor, for it's project to preserve an estimated 450 historic cemeteries in the county's unincorporated areas-approximately one for every 2.5 square miles."
(this quoted portion taken directly from Vol. 22, number 3, p 6, County Focus Magazine, South Carolina Association of Counties).

The more people we have working together, the fewer people we have to work against. The more we do together, the more we get done. The more we learn from each other, the better our results.

A difficult stone can reveal many secrets with a simple spray of water and toothbrush, or aluminum foil wrap and soft toothbrush to obtain an impression. (See memorial #51880376).
PLEASE no flour, shave cream or chalk.

My personal belief: "To each of you reading this, if you are a cemetery walker, then God Bless for your energy. And if you document your findings with photos or entries on, God Bless again and I'm grateful for your work done and your future efforts. Each grave contains someone's loved one who has passed away. Each life had meaning and still influences those left behind. We carry our loved ones in our hearts even after they are gone from this earth."

Hi Susan,

I entered this memorial based on her death certificate which states "Lowry Family Cemetery" as place of burial. I will upload the death certificate to the memorial if you would like. Another Find A Grave member sent me a rather curt email telling me it was a duplicate and requested I delete the memorial. Should it be confirmed this is incorrect please let me know and I will remove it.

RE: Dr. Al Leining
Dear Dr. Leining,
No, I am not active in Find-A-Grave.
I do get occassional requests for corrections, revisions and additions, and honor those requests. I have asked, and Roger Lambert has accepted managing any accounts that I can not dedicate time.
Thank you for your e-mail. My apologizes for the incredible delay.
