Bio and Links
Bio Photo I don't know about you, but I love to see a face on a memorial.
I'm especially annoyed with people who rant about their copyrights to grave marker photos.

YOU ARE WELCOME TO ANYTHING I HAVE AND COPY IT TO WHEREVER YOU WISH. You need not ask for my permission. And although it may be polite, you need not give me the original credit. Whatever I post, whatever site I post it on, I do it so you will find it, love it, and use it for your own. Free of charge. It's a gift.

I will TRANSFER a memorial without giving you the third degree about whether you are worthy or not. (Unless of course they are of my direct line, please understand.) Just ask me, go ahead. I'm pretty easy to get along with. :0)

* ORIGINALLY from Redding, SHASTA COUNTY, Centerville Cemetery is still our family plot.
* Today, I'm in NEVADA COUNTY, CA. If you need something looked up here, just ask, I'll see what I can do. I enjoy researching in our historical library in Nevada City.
* I spend most of my time in Greenwood Cemetery here in Grass Valley. It's like home away from home, LOL! There's enough going on right here.
I don't mind edits at all, use the edit button, it tells me you have found someone you have been looking for, and that you have something to contribute to make the memorial more accurate and interesting.

Life's short. Play nice. Practice random acts of kindness. Stress is optional.

Thank you, all you other Find-A-Grave volunteers! You are so awesome!!!

Hello Deanna
Thank you for the info re: his parents. I'll research details and add to the memorial.
Thank you, also, for your openness. I too resent the attitude of those who believe they have the right to own photos of others' grave sites.
Thanks again

John C. Thomas

Thank you for letting me know where John Thomas is buried. I have added him to Greenwood Memorial Cemetery in California.

I'm sure they will be very happy to be in the same cemetery.

RE: Matheron in Penn Valley
I am confused. The obituary that is on Lena Matheson's memorial reads Lena Matheson (not Matheron). But the marker reads Matheron. Which is incorrect, the obituary or the marker? Thanks, Virginia

Love your bio!
Hi, Deanna,
I just ran across your profile and I can't tell you how much I appreciate it. I went into this totally naive, just hoping to find my ancestors. After I retired, I found out how much I enjoy taking requested photos, visiting cemeteries with all the history there and setting up memorials when I find graves that do not have one. My husband and I have taken it on as a hobby in our old age. There is outdoors, travel, exercise, history and making people happy when you post a headstone photo of an ancestor buried half a country away. What's not to enjoy?

While most people are very, very nice, I was blindsided by how nasty some people can be and how cut throat it can to be build up those numbers. I requested an ancestor memorial in my direct line and got an arguemnt about how her name should have been loaded. Good grief!

I have decided to keep my eye out for people who have simply been rude and not nice and not post anything else on their memorials. There is one person out here that denies you edit for some such as putting it in the wrong place then loads it herself. lol Fine with me. I just want to have fun!
My philiosphy is yours. Keep up the good work! BJ

Hi Deanna, just wanted to check how you knew her grave is unmarked.

BTW, I'm from Shasta County also (Happy Valley/Anderson/Redding). Graduated from Anderson High School in 1969. I'm a third generation born in Shasta County. My family has been in California for over 156 years. Lin
