Bio and Links
Bio Photo 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.

Herbert & Sina Blake
Hello What good work you are doing to preserve the memories of people AND a great help to those of us working on our family trees. Thank you. Herbert Bertram Blake is my GreatGrand Uncle memorial # 89835729. If no one else in the family has asked, would you maybe transfer him and his wife Lucina Glake memorial # 89821383? If not that is ok too. I did send you an edit with Herbert's parents to link them up with. Again thank you for your volunteer work. Susan (Herbert is the brother of my GreatGrandfather Lemuel Blake.
