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!

Dear Nancy, Is the woman pictured with Don his wife Mae? Thanks, Joni
|Joni Spellman Krause||Family Photos|
Dear Nancy, Thank-you for your generous blanket use of your photos. I will be adding them to my tree on Ancestry.com with credit given to you. I am related to the Gilberts through the Horton/Gay side. Your memorials are some of the nicest I've seen. Thank-you again. Warmly, Joni
|Nathan Haines||Archibald Vernon "Archie" Stinson|
I think I just messed up?! I think I sent you an suggestion for edit, about a picture request that was made for Archie and you were not the one who made the request for the picture, you just made the page for him.
Anyway, hope that explains why you got that message, ok?
|JeanND||RE: Paul Florhaug|
Thank you for your note, Nancy! I definitely will add it to my Tree for additional reference & confirmation of burial as there is no stone. Paul Florhaug is my husband's 2x great grandfather.

Every cemetery has lots of unmarked graves. Who knows what happens over the decades or very often, none was ever purchased. Back in the day, folks just did not have money or erected wooden crosses which are long gone

I added a photo of the LUND family monument but there is no personal marker for Hans

|Kim Nelson||RE: Edwin Bailey Headstone|
Thanks for the appreciation! He has been on my list since I added the other Bailey stones back in May. I walked the section twice tonight and spotted his (and A.S. Bailey together) about 10 feet from where I started tonight's search. I was as excited as you to have finally found it :D
|Ann Z||RE: Thomas Kingsley|
I will have to go back and take another one of the headstone. I didn't notice when I took it that I had my video on. So instead of a still pic got a video. And couldn't figure out how to get a still from it so just photographed the computer image of the video to post for now until I can get back over there. That's why it looks weird.

There very well may have been records at one time, but over the years, there have been many caretakers of the cemetery, with records kept on crude drawings and ledger books. I believe many may have been lost over the years. The current general manager has worked tirelessly to scan in all available documents and names and burial locations into a database. It has taken him several years to accomplish, and I must say, with over 15,500 graves in that cemetery, I am in awe of the work he has done.
|Theresa Ardoin Van Meter||RE: Bland Headstones|
You are so welcome...and again, I'm sorry I wasn't able to provide those photos.
