The very first thing I want to say is THANK YOU to all of you who send me edits for the memorials I manage. I check Find A Grave almost every day and absolutely love it when edits come my way. I use the edit feature often, and it always lifts my spirits when I see them go through. It reinforces that this site is a community effort and we are all working together to make it as complete and accurate as possible. |
I have been interested in genealogy for 30 years and have written over a dozen family history books, the first one in 1979. The majority of our family vacations in the 1980s & 1990s revolved around cemeteries and visiting relatives. (Our kids ask why there are so many photos of them posing on headstones!)
When I joined FindAGrave, I kept busy adding our own family members. I knew where most were buried but some had to be searched for. In 2013, my husband and I took a trip through Montana, North Dakota and Minnesota and, in the process, found lots of folks to whom we were not related. I've created memorials for them adding as much additional information as I could find. We were able to fill dozens of photo requests; it felt good being able to pay forward all of the requests that volunteers have filled for us.
I endeavor to make memorials as complete as possible, including headstone photos, bios and links. (I have received permission for obits unless the newspapers are out of print or the copyrights have expired.)
Most of my memorials are family members, but I'll happily consider transfers if you are more closely related.
You are welcome to use any of the photos I have posted but I would enjoy hearing from you if you do use any.
FindAGrave has added so much to my life. I love being a part of it!

Thank you very much for you additions.

Aurora Community cemetery is VERY large so it would help if you can obtain the location of this grave. Otherwise it takes walking over terrain that is uneven and hilly in the older section.
I have tried in the past to communicate with someone who is on this cemetery board but have never gotten any response.
Of course until mid week there is frozen snow on the ground which covers the flat markers and is not easily scraped off.
I will be glad to fulfill your request with some help on the location.

Nancy, Is this your family? If so would you like it transferred to you? Thanks for the edits. I can use all the help I can get! Lynn

A big part of the reason I claimed them was to help repay the considerable amount of time you give to Find a Grave.
Incidentally, Amelia lived at 200 Arch St. (there is no Arck St. here)when she died. It still is a senior hi-rise, so she had a built-in community of friendly neighbors. It was barely 100 yards from the 193 Pennsylvania St. address she and John lived in before it was demolished for a road project.
Thanks for all you do. Regards.

Not a problem. It was raining pretty hard yesterday so grass, leaves etc was all over. They were not next to each (not even in the same garden) other but easy to find.

Thank you for your quick response and moving the memorials. I appreciate it and all that you do on Find A Grave!

You are very welcome. I almost didn't find the grave. I went to the office and they gave me the section and lot number etc. I went to where I thought the grave was and all that was there was a huge daylily and hosta plant. Luckily, there was a groundskeeper mowing in the area so I asked him where the grave was and he said it was under the daylily and hosta plant! He mowed the plant down, I went home and got a shovel and a broom and did some digging and dusting and sure enough, found the headstone! Thank goodness the groundskeeper knew there was a headstone there. I was kind of wondering about that plant and thought it might be a grave but didn't see a stone anywhere. It was a good 4-5 inches under ground. So that is why the picture looks so messy and I apologize for that. The groundskeeper said he mows the plant down every fall and clears the stone but because of the size of the cemetery he can only do upkeep just that once a year. I hope he tells someone that there is a grave there when he retires!
