If your account does not receive messages and you have no email listed I have no way to answer you. Please let me know which memorial is in question and I will research it.

I enjoy family history and when I discovered Find a Grave I was quite thrilled. Unfortunately none of my relatives were posted.

My mission was to get my relatives posted and while I was at it I posted the people around my relatives. I keep expanding the circle hoping the effort will help someone.

If you see your relative I would be happy to transfer management to you(except for my immediate family). Please don't assume that they are my family if they are linked to spouses or children. If I am sure they are related I link them.

I am not fussy about copyrights to my pictures posted on find a grave. Please feel free to copy and use them as you see fit. Not only is this site for the memory of loved ones, but it is also used to help others find their ancestors. Please feel free to post picture, death certificates, military records or any information you can provide. We are all in this together.

Thank you
Thank you for finding information about my great grandmother Malinda Allison and her son Wilford Allison .

I was puzzled by a census record for Malinda which said she had two children with only one surviving ( surviving child would be my Grandmother)

The 5 year old son H. Wilford Allison Jr provided the missing piece to my puzzle.

RE: Bakewell's Allegheny Cemetery


I totally agree that families should be united and I really enjoy accomplishing that by providing info and linking their memorials etc.

The Bakewell Family is an unusual situation for me as I am so distantly related to them. I am a Stough Family descendant and a very distant member married a Bakewell. So I started tracking down her parents. while doing that I became intrigued by the 100's of Bakewell Memorials that existed and were unlinked and very sparse data on them. So utilizing the Ancestry data sources and the Bakewell Family Genealogy Book available there I started fixing/linking them. What I thought would take me a week has become a 8week intense effort and still going.
I have found a Bakewell descendant that is interested in the family and I am going to transfer all the Memorials that I have created or received to him as soon as I can force myself to stop and go back to my own families. I would encourage you to do the same - as you said Family should take care of Family.

He is William Hearter Member 47382838.

Find A Grave Memorial# 115138301
dear zim,
my 10-year endeavor with the Keeling ancestry shows that constance's maiden name was BARR and that she was the daughter of Roy Barr and Dessie Sprowls.
would you please re-check your record? constance preceeded jerome's death, so that rules out a 2nd marriage.
hope all is well with you and yours and many thanks for the work you do.

Grave Headstone Photo
Hi Zim
My question is where do you get the photos that you post on Find A Grave sites? I just looked up my great aunt on Find A Grave and saw a photo that I just recently took of her headstone posted by you. So I was curious how you acquired it? I am new to Find A Grave, so I do not know all the rules. Thank you.
