When my daughter was assigned a classroom project of "Who am I?" while in school, the internet was extremely young and no really easy way of filling in your ancestors other than questioning the living or hours ensconced in the library or local LDS family center. By questioning me and my parents she sparked the ember that would grow and grow in both myself and my mother.
When I discovered Find A Grave and its wealth of information, I was in heaven. Many of my ancestors I had no idea where they were buried. Now a whole new world was opening up.
I have since become a contributor and photographer. When I go to the cemetery to fulfill a photo request, I take extra photos of the surrounding plots.
Anyone wishing to use my photos may do so. My only request is to please give Find A Grave a mention in your use of the photo. Without this website, the photo wouldn't be there.
John Benson Pelton His name is listed as such in several family trees which you can see here: http://wc.rootsweb.ancestry.com/cgi-bin/igm.cgi?op=Search&includedb=&lang=en&ti=&surname=pelton&stype=Exact&given=john+benson&bplace=&byear=&brange=0&dplace=&dyear=&drange=0&mplace=&myear=&mrange=0&father=&mother=&spouse=&skipdb=&period=All&submit.x=Search
RE: Marie Riton Leblanc When her daughter Marie-Elizabeth Leblanc was married, the mother was listed as Marie-Marguerite Riton. I did not keep the record when I found it this afternoon, but I can find it again next week white at the library.
RE: Walter Kruger You're welcome, Chris, and yes, I will put her on my list of photos to get and check in about a month. They were inscribing one of her neighbors, also a wife, while I was waiting for the sun to reappear and it was clear that the cloud bank was not going to break again so I had to go with my cloudy photos. I'll also get a nice closeup one of just Walter's side of the headstone when I get hers. If we have a winter like last year with not much snow I should be able to get a nice snow photo of her side. You don't need to request it-unless for some reason I've forgotten and it's not up by spring then you can remind me.
RE: Dewitt Frazier You are quite welcome! I find that many of my roadblocks from years back, are beginning to clear up thanks to more records becoming available and to those who ask for corrections on many of those records. The transcribers (I'm one too) sometimes make mistakes and it is caught later. Thank you for being a Find a Grave contributor. I really appreciate you! Terry
Marie Trottain Bouchard Thank you for the note! I took his edit at face value, but after researching it further, I've deleted the death year and middle name. It does look like he was combining Marie Trottain and Marie-Madeleine Laporte.
Also, I found a PRDH record for Marie-Madeleine Laporte with her death and burial info, so have added her to Find A Grave and linked her to Michel. Unfortunately, there wasn't a death listing for her first husband, Martin Fouquet or their children.
Louise Migneault & Jean Migneault Hi Chris, I transferred these memorials before seeing the edits that you have submitted, so you'll need to change the last name for Jean. On Louise, the last name is supposed to be the last name they were known by, so it would just be Mateau rather than Migneault Mateau. However, if the last marriage didn't have any children, you should be ok to leave her last name as Migneault... Thanks
I entered Jacqueline in my data base in 2008 and at this point can not tell you where I got the info, but know it is not my original research.
I have checked Rootsweb, Ancestry and the French site Geneanet and in all date bases Courgeon is the location that out numbers Courgeout by vast numbers. Also checked LDS catalog, that did not help either.
