Bio and Links
Bio Photo I've been hit by the genealogy bug! I love to get information, photos, stories or etc. about my extended family. I started a family tree on Ancestry and have found out so much and have found relatives I would of otherwise never known. That is why I am a volunteer photographer, which is my trade and what I love to do. I know what others feel when they receive their information. It makes the work I do the most rewarding of all.

Gravestone Photo Permission
I am happy to see that you photographed the gravestone of Mary Alford Langley in Valhalla Memorial Gardens (Memorial# 51296098).

I would like to add this gravestone photo to the (non-profit) Alford American Family Association's collection of Alabama Obituaries, where her obituary is (or will be) included. You can see the current collection at

May I have your permission to include your gravestone photos? If so, the photo caption will say:

Photo from [cemetery name, city, county, state]—
Permission granted by the photographer, Donna Franks-Howell

And thanks so much for your gravestone photo work!

Best regards,
Pamela Alford Thompson (Find A Grave #47195155)

Thank you so very much for the transfer and the additional information. I had no idea there is a master list. I have surgery tomorrow but will check Monday. You're a treasure and once again, thank you.

Winton Floyd #34479455
I do realize that according to the dates you were first to create a site for my uncle Winton Green Floyd, so I do understand your site has priority. I did not understand how all this worked when I asked Tom Childers to transfer to me the site he had created for him. The only problem is I have most of the family members and when I add a new sibling like I had to do today when they buried Aunt Dot then Winton (We pronounce it Winun)appears on the sibling list twice for each sibling and Mom is the only one left living. I guess I am asking if you don't mind would you please delete your site for him. I realize now how big a deal that is but I will pay closer attention from now on and look to make sure a relative has not already been added before I add them or as in this case, ask for a transfer. ~Thank you so much Micki Freels

I have been to this cemetery. I live in California so have depended on a Wiggins cousin for information. If these dates are incorrect would have a correction. One of the problems the the reuse of the same names over and over again. I'm sure you have found this out. I have 15 William Wiggins in my database. Are we cousins?
