Rudeness will be ignored.

I enjoy documenting graves so that others can find their kin easily & accurately. It is an opportunity to honor those who have died as well as give current and future generations access to information on the life of a forebear or other relative.

Thanks to everyone who has sent encouraging and positive thoughts! I don't always have time to answer everyone back, but please know you too are appreciated. :)

With only a few exceptions, I will no longer enter cause of death info nor death certificate numbers.

Duplicates: It's never my intention to create a duplicate on purpose. If you come across a duplicate I have made, please use the SAC and let me know.

If I enter a memorial on May 1st for Jane Doe and then someone else enters another memorial for the same Jane Doe on May 15th, the one entered on May 15th is the duplicate, not mine, regardless of how much info is or isn't on the memorial.

Transfers: I am not one of those people who refuse to transfer in or out of guidelines. Ask and ye shall receive, unless you're 1 of those people who don't transfer out of guidelines. Please note, if we are both related to the person in the memorial I will only transfer if you are related to a closer degree.

If you have any questions about family history research, or need help navigating this wonderful site, I always enjoy the opportunity to help you. Please contact me via the SAC tab on any memorial I have created.

RE: Clarks
You're very welcome. It was an honor to take the pictures for you. Billy Clark has been Claimed by jeff gullickson. He should have it posted by the end of this week. We are not allowed to post a photo once someone else has claimed that person.

You're most welcome! I'm the office administrator/superintendent at the Cemetery and when it's slow I don't mind to do it at all.

RE: St Clair
William, you are very welcome. I was pleased to uncover his original stone and surprised to see his newer veteran's plaque. This morning Find A Grave approved my photo I submitted of the Stillwell cemetery. I un-earthed and photo'd all the remaining stones that I could find there. Hope this all helps. Regards, Amy

I added his monument to his site on Find a Grave. There is a bit of sinkage on one side and a tree that is a growing a bit that may cover his monument. I cleaned off the stone, but the stone may need lifted in the near future.

Thank you very much for the additional information for him. I have added it to his memorial page. I struggle with military research so it is always welcoming to have someone that finds more details to provide it.

Have a great evening,
