This site has helped me a lot so I thought I would help contribute to it! As for me, my family names are Koch, Mast, Fountain, Gonyea, and Bodary on my father's side and Adams, Bay, Reed, Voorhies, Griffin, Hayes, and Milford on my mother's side. I have been researching my genealogy for years but have only recently been able to make some big discoveries (one thanks to this site!).
The transfer of any memorials to me that are linked through my virtual cemeteries would be much appreciated!
RE: Southfield and research I was not aware there were two sections---is the other section you are talking about about a block away? I did look there but I was following my GPS which led me to the big section. The Austins are over by the fence furthest from the entrance. There are two large DUNBAR markes--mid cemetery. The Alonzo Dunbar I was unable to find was quite a bit earlier (older). The info I recieved from Parks and Rec gave me a listing of all the Dunbars supposedly buried in Southfield but there are supposed to be more. Thanks for the concern.
RE: Southfield Cemetery Onwe of the interestings I have learned is that when you are looking for grave markers--they are sometimes buried under several inches of dirt--especially if they are old. I take a metal probe, a small broom and a garden trowel to uncover them for a photo.
Ancestors Actually there is a lot of info on this site---I have learned a lot that I did not know about my ancestore----I have placed a lot of the old ones on here in order that others who are seeking info will be helped. Not all information is factual as I have discovered several mistakes/incorrect dates wrong descendants ie. Al in all it is a very good resource. One thing that irks me is that people fail ti link parents, siblings ect.
