I am glad to share any information about the memorials that I manage. I have personal knowledge about many of them and welcome questions and correspondence.

My intent is to share family history (not just mine) so that it's not forgotten. Often I will ask for a transfer, add information and links and then transfer it back. I love it when bio's and obit's are included and families are linked!

I LOVE my old photos of relatives. I share them freely to help keep their memory alive for future generations. If you use any of my family photos, acknowledging the source isn't necessary, but it would be appreciated and keeps us all in touch.

Thank you to the Find-A-Grave folks who are responsible managers and take good care of their memorials with pleasure. A big thank you to the folks who accidentally make a duplicate and correct it when brought to their attention.


Here's an email excerpt from fellow graver, Alicia Roundy Houston. I love this! She nailed a trait that so many of us share:

...after a couple of attempts (and subsequent diversions that kept me sidetracked for hours and hours)

RE: Noted
Hi, Jen ~ you're right that has terrible transcribers...surely overseas hires when many of us would do it free in exchange for a membership or such. They also seem to never fix flaws. My latest was reporting wrong images connected to some Arizona death certificates. I got lucky in that case as Arizona has many of their records on a free site of their own and happily told me how to find it!

Thank you so much for kind words...and have a lovely mothers day!

strickland-segraves family cemetery
Hello- I think we have spoke before- can you tell me exactly where the cemetery is. I have drove-looked-searched and cannot find it.
Henry and Lucenda are my husbands gg grand parents.

Go to the chandler family tree and look for charlie and Emma Strickland- they are my husband parents.
I wish I could talk to them, so I have to pray a little harder
Thanks for your concern--Ann

RE: Anne Brigman
I have now. Wow. Thank you for "clueing me in" to this talented woman. That whole family line accomplished many things--some better than others--but they sure didn't sit on the sidelines.

Thanks again for replying.

Hi Jen. I am distantly related to Anne Wardrope Nott Brigman and your December 1st, 2013 comment intrigues me. You said "Your bohemian spirit is still admired...long after you probably expected. What did you mean by that--or, can you tell me more about her and her family?

My mother is a Scott and some of her family are buried here. My father has done extensive geneology research into her family. Are you related somehow I see where you have updated some of that info. I have a link to William Earl Scott's obituary. He was my Uncle and is now buried there.

Re: Lottie Stinchacum
Your sweet Lottie appears to have "adopted" John Edward Boswell. I would be very interested to know if you have docs for this from Shasta County?

I meant Lee S Dunn, Sr., not Irven Dunn. I was thinking of Irven Oliver Lewis, who was Monny's son-in-law.
