Bio and Links
Bio Photo "Look toward heaven and count the stars, if you are able to count them." Then he said to him, "So shall your descendants be."
Genesis 15:5

***********************

When someone is mean, don't listen.
When someone is rude, walk away.
When someone tries to put you down, stay firm.
Don't let someone else's bad behavior destroy your inner peace.

***********************

Please do not add the living to FAG. This is Find A Grave, how do you find the grave of the living? I've never been able to figure that one out.

***********************

Edits: I gladly accept edits. I except edits after I've verified that the information is correct as is my right per Find A Grave. I have so many reliable members that I receive edits from that I don't have to research their edits & I'm thankful for them. Edits give me a heads up that the memorial hasn't been worked on yet. Everyone has their own way of doing things. I'm not changing my way for anyone. I'm a very active member. Find A Grave is aware of this.

***Per Find A Grave:

"We have a soft limit of 40 edits per week over the edit tab and a limit of 20 edits per week over "suggest a correction". Plus 21 days to complete them."

***********************

Linking: I find it important to link families in death as they were in life. If I haven't linked yet, I haven't gotten to them, but I will. Find A Grave once said they'd like the cemeteries to open like a book. This is what I strive for.

***********************

Duplicates: I thank anyone who notifies me of a duplicate. They are not intentional. I gladly take them off without hesitation. Find A Grave frowns upon duplication of memorials. You can always tell a newbie to Find A Grave. They are like vultures swooping down to let you know you have a duplicate with a long winded explanation that always cracks me up. As a rule, if I find a duplicate, I only advise "duplicate" with memorial numbers of "both" memorials. Nothing else is required per Find A Grave. After all, I am not perfect, and neither are you. I think nothing of removing them.

******************

A short Bio: I've been involved in Genealogy for 40 years. It's been exciting traveling to different states, visiting court houses, libraries, cemeteries. Finding links to tie my family together. I have documented my family back to the 1640's. I value each piece of documentation I've acquired over 40 years. I also value everyone I've met during those years. We've remained lifelong friends. Respect, given & received is very important in Genealogy. I've been a FAG member for over thirteen years. I've been able to help some of you because of the nice letters I've received. I've also worked with many wonderful people in the 13 years. I've met a lot of you at cemeteries. I'm retired & FAG fills a lot of days & evenings when I'm not enjoying the company of my family who are very dear to me,

*******************

Pictures: I take pictures while visiting a cemetery hoping those of you who can't visit your loved ones grave's can visit them here. My memorials are respectful & caring. I grieve with you in your loss. You're welcome to use my pictures. Credit doesn't have to be given. I see a lot of my pictures on Ancestry. That is fine with me. I'm glad I could help. I'm not a glory seeker. I'm dedicated to Find A Grave but it does not define me. As far as pictures on my memorials, Find A Grave advises if someone has already submitted photo's to my memorials, I still have the right to post mine. The other photo's will be moved down. They advise no one has a right to expect theirs to be exclusive. I don't expect mine to be exclusive on anyone's memorials. I've been active for over 13 years taking photo's for FAG. If I've not gotten to them I will. It's a privilege to post to memorials submitted by other members. Do not abuse that privilege. I take pride in my photo's. I've cleaned stone's for 40 years. We also weed around them. Unfortunately if I cleaned & weeded every one, I wouldn't be able to walk the next day. Don't let anyone tell you this isn't allowed. Over the years I've talked with many trustee's who were thrilled someone cared enough to do so. A little water & a soft rag does the job. I don't take photo's on a dreary day or if snow is on the ground. I don't post photo's to memorials that already has a photo. I get a lot of requests to take a picture of certain stones for genealogy purposes. I'm always glad to help those working on their family history.

*****************

Find A Grave Policy: I follow FAG policy. I won't post cut out obits in the picture section, I won't add names of the living to obits. I don't post obituary photo's to my memorials because they are not my photo's. This is FAG policy. If I find a cut out obit in the picture section I will have it removed. Death Certificates are welcome. I do not remove picture's from my memorials that others have placed. I may remove one of my own to edit & make better. I do not abuse the edit system or it's rules.

****************

Transferring Memorials: I'm constantly transferring memorials to those who request transfers. I'm glad to be able to do this. I believe in working together & sharing my work.

****************

Adding to Biography Section: I try to add information to the biography section. If you send something to be added to this section, I give credit to the sender. Obituaries and any kind of history is welcome in this section.

*************************

I do not bother other members or try to work on their memorials. There's so many buried in cemeteries who are not recorded. I strive to work on those graves.

I also don't condemn a member for the amount of memorials they have. I'm proud of the people that go out and take the pictures & creates the memorial. I know very well the amount of hard work it takes to photograph cemeteries. I've photographed over 68,000 head stone's myself & walked many a cemetery to get those pictures. I applaud you!

*************************

"She calls to me from long ago; through sunlit skies; through drifts of snow. In clouds that dance upon the sea, I call to her, and she to me.

So real was she. She laughed; she cried. She loved; she lost. She lived; she died. She hoped and dreamed; so real was she. She lived a life that I may be.

The blood through which my veins does flow is the same as her's from long ago. So it will be that when I'm gone in an unborn child it will flow on.

I'll live my life and when it's done I'll live again in those to come. For I'm a bridge from she to me; from those that were, to those to be."
-- Darlene Caryl-Stevens

*************************

Jesus said, " But I tell you who hear me: Love your enemies, do good to those who hate you, bless those who curse you, pray for those who mistreat you."
~~~ Luke 6:27-28
