The very first thing I want to say is THANK YOU to all of you who send me edits for the memorials I manage. I check Find A Grave almost every day and absolutely love it when edits come my way. I use the edit feature often, and it always lifts my spirits when I see them go through. It reinforces that this site is a community effort and we are all working together to make it as complete and accurate as possible. |
I have been interested in genealogy for 30 years and have written over a dozen family history books, the first one in 1979. The majority of our family vacations in the 1980s & 1990s revolved around cemeteries and visiting relatives. (Our kids ask why there are so many photos of them posing on headstones!)
When I joined FindAGrave, I kept busy adding our own family members. I knew where most were buried but some had to be searched for. In 2013, my husband and I took a trip through Montana, North Dakota and Minnesota and, in the process, found lots of folks to whom we were not related. I've created memorials for them adding as much additional information as I could find. We were able to fill dozens of photo requests; it felt good being able to pay forward all of the requests that volunteers have filled for us.
I endeavor to make memorials as complete as possible, including headstone photos, bios and links. (I have received permission for obits unless the newspapers are out of print or the copyrights have expired.)
You are welcome to use any of the photos I have posted but I would enjoy hearing from you if you do use any.
FindAGrave has added so much to my life. I love being a part of it!

no problem. I have been very careful but duplicates happen. One occasion where two cemeteries were combined, that made several duplicates. Another was where a member had an old unnamed memorial and made it the same name as one I had entered. Findagrave went with theirs since it had the older date.

Thank you for sending these! However, when I went to verify them, I came up empty on the National Archives. Would you please let me know your sources (and if you would like to send a copy of the funeral leaflet/obituary/death certificate as an attachment to me at email@example.com I will be most happy to transcribe it and weave it into the bio).
I look forward to hearing from you!

Thank you so very much for adding this to Find A Grave! He is my grandchildren's paternal great-grandfather. I have been researching this family and having real problems with them. I have saved a copy of his and Elsie's tombstone to add to their tree. Again a big thank you.

Hi Nancy: I am referring this back to you per my Personal Find A Grave Bio., Paragraphs 4-7, and will gladly transfer the memorial to you upon your request. Have a good day.
