"I will show you fear in a handful of dust." T.S. Eliot|
We are not so much afraid of dying, as we are of no one remembering we existed at all.
We only walk this earth because of the people before us. Every name is a memory to a life, not just a branch in a tree. Sometimes all that echoes through time is a name, a date, a relationship, a headstone. But bringing those things together here is remembering the person who lived, and I am proud to be a part of this community of volunteers who spend their free time to send the message "you have not been forgotten"
Still active as of September 2014. If you have any information to add to any memorials I have created please let me know but use the EDIT- SUGGEST A CORRECTION feature. Please also use this feature when inquiring about a specific memorial, the comments section below is not helpful in directing me with a link to see what you are talking about.
PROCESSING EDITS: I know about the feature, but I don't blindly click all. Have patience, I will get to it, but I do check- I will also look for an obituary for you if its here in Oregon. So have patience, check back when you get the email, it might be worth a look.
DO YOU KNOW? Find A Grave will automatically process all untouched edits after 3 weeks. Yep. that contributor who's been ignoring your requests for years didn't just finally get with the program.
DO YOU KNOW? if you mess up a submission you can go to your own edits page, use the drop down menu to find edits you have submitted, find the edit you did and delete and redo if it hasn't been processed. Pretty Nifty if you ask me. Edits on Find A Grave are finally happening and they have fixed some of the flaws from the initial launch.
PHOTOS: I am not going to remember I took a headstone photo, let alone look for it on ancestry.com to file copyright infringement. I took the photo to help you! If you would like any of the photos I have taken for your own family tree, you are welcome to them. If its a family photo I added though, please contact me!

|Kathryn Wagner||re: the Brindells|
THANK YOU, THANK YOU! I was about ready to delete the memorials, as what you said made sense. I HATE duplicates and deal with a man here that has "mass uploaded" one of our biggest cemeteries. We work well together, and I fill in lots of info for him. When I am searching for relatives of the folks of the photos I uploaded, I find a duplicate memorial quite often. He has explained to me that some folks just make a memorial with "burial unknown", if it does not list a cemetery in the obit, and therefore tons of duplicates end up out there. I thought that because I had SEARCHED and SEARCHED FIRST to make sure that there wasn't a memorial already out there, that I was "good to go". Thanks for filling me in, and thank you so much for the photos. I changed Sr's name to Franklin A. and entered the correct cemetery, I HOPE. I appreciate your input and the photos. Thanks again and God bless!
|Kathryn Wagner||re: Franklin Brindell|
I'm sorry - was I not suppose to create memorials for Franklin, Sr. and Cora, when the burial spot is unknown? I am relatively new to Find A Grave and didn't realize that I shouldn't do something like that. I thought that was what the "unknown burial site" thing was for. I wanted to link the kids and hoped that someday some family member would come and either ask for the transfer or edit the memorials with the information. I found both of their death certificates in Oregon and Washington and figured that I was doing the right thing. I had no idea that it was wrong to do. Please enlighten me here. Is there a reason that you "unlinked Franklin" to his folks? I don't understand. Plus, I had no idea that Oregon "shortened" middle names, so I could not assume that Alv was Franklin, Jr.'s and Franklin, Sr.'s middle name. I will change Sr.'s to an A as well. Thank you for letting me know this information, and again, I am sorry, if I've done something incorrect with adding a memorial with "burial unknown". I looked and looked and looked for memorials for both of them and could not find anything close. I thought that it was the best thing to do. God bless.

|Floral Designer||RE: Rapalje's|
sure take the photo's but give credit to david osborn historian at st pauls.. ok.. Barb have a good labor day .. no money in those days also for headstones
|Katie Lou||RE: Darnes photos @ Highland|
yes that's fine.
|Linda Crandall||Albert Walts|
You're right. His mother would have been Eveline Kepley. I have a survey done of the cemetery in the 80s. It says son of George & Susannah, Albert is buried next to Henry, Elizabeth (my great aunt), Jess & George W. He would have been the child called Willard in the 1860 census. I wonder if the middle name beginning with H is really a W.
|Floral Designer||rapeljerem request Update|
the other two are buried in the same area but unmarked ..per the historian..David Osborn.. I asked him to add a flag to the area and shot a photo.. he takes all the photo's request and I add them, he likes to do it.. I'm only 15 min away. will add the others as soon as I get an email, from him. Barb
|Alan Eugene Koch||Dorothy Wendling|
Thanks for the transfer. Dorothy was an important part of my wife's ancestry and we will give the memorial the utmost respect.
|Elsie Gambrel||RE: Wolfe Cemetery|
Erin, of course you may use any photos I have taken.
