After a niece sent me a copy of my father's "Find A Grave" memorial and asked why my mother was not on it, I became a member. Now I am addicted to it.|
Find A Grave is one of the most beneficial websites that I have become aquainted with both for genealogy and for historical preservation.
I will do my best to find the gravestones that are requested and may have to make a few trips so if the first picture is not of great quality, I will put a comment that I plan to redo it.
So far, I have done 3 complete cemeteries and am in the process of checking off names in case anyone is missing. Then I will do a physical search to see if they are unmarked or covered by grass, bushes or trees.
Any memorials will be gladly transfered. The only ones that I wish to keep are family tree members. I am entering people with the information that is on their stones with the hopes that someone will be searching for them. (I am not doing this just to build up numbers and I sure hope that is not anyone else's purpose.) Any corrections will be made as soon as I get notice of them.
Please do not be offended if I add a photo showing that a stone is in danger of being damaged. It is only a way to help save the stones. I am attempting to gather a group of volunteers to remove unwanted bushes and trees that were planted in a cemetery that are getting out of control because families never maintained them after planting them.
As I said, I am new to this and I appreciate all the helpful advice that others have given me.
Good luck searching for your loved ones and God bless.
* Please be patient, I may still fill your requests after the weather gets nicer.

|deanna french||RE: S.D Spink Civil War photo's|
Many thanks for sharing your photo's. You are very much appreciated!
|deanna french||S.D Spink Civil War photo's|
I am a vermont Civil War buff, and am presently working on a project to identify the last resting places of many of our "old soldiers" that had ties to Vt.I have found that you have contributed photo's to Find A Grave Memorial pages that are our patriots. May I use them to post on the Vt.C.W. site? ( www.vermontcivilwar.org) The ones I have located in Spinks Co. are F.A. Basford, Joseph Basford, and Alvin Clark.Perhaps there are more.
You will receive credit for this.
Thank you for your consideration.

Yes, a contributor should know where the person is buried. I understand your frustration, however, I have made a practice of giving the burial information, if I know it, to the one who contributed the memorial first. Thank you so much for responding and thank you for your contributions to this website. They are so helpful to those of us who are searching our ancestry.
