~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

I have been interested in Genealogy for quite a few years. I stumbled upon Find A Grave when I was using Ancestry.com and decided that this was something I would enjoy doing. So, my latest hobby was born. I enjoy going to cemeteries and taking photos to upload to this site. Others have done the same for me. It means the world to me to be able to see the grave sites of those who came before me.

Through research I have discovered that about 17 or so generations back on my father's side, I have 2 Princes of Wales and a King of Wales in my lineage.

Recently I connected with a distant cousin through this site and was able to find out some amazing things about my father's family.

I am researching the Ross family of Shubert, Nebraska primarily. I am also interested in the Parent family of Ascension Parish, Louisiana as well.

"The Chosen"

We are the chosen. In each family there is one (or more) who seems called to find the ancestors. To put flesh on their bones and make them live again. To tell the family story and to feel that somehow they know and approve. Doing genealogy is not a cold gathering of facts but, instead, breathing life into all who have gone before. We are the story tellers of the tribe. All tribes (hopefully) have at least one. We have been called, as it were, by our genes. Those who have gone before cry out to us: Tell our story. So, we do. In finding them, we somehow find ourselves.

Robert J Daniel and Helen Mae Daniel
Hi Joy,
Thanks to you, I have located two relatives on the "Daniel" side of my family. I don't know if you located these grave sites accidentally or are these two people related to you? Their names are
Robert J. Daniel and Helen Mae Daniel in Park View Cemetery and Funeral Home, Manteca, CA. My
name is Susan Zeich. Robert J. Daniel was my mother's half-brother(they had the same father).
My mother is Martha Susan Daniel(1917-1996). Thank you so much for the pictures of the grave markers. Do you have any connection to these people? Specifically, I am looking for the names
of the children of Robert and Helen Daniel as they would be distant cousins of mine.

Re your Photos on Find A Grave
Many thanks for your work in recording Grave Marker photos on the Find a Grave Website. I wonder if your photos are copyright or am I allowed to add them to my family tree on Ancestry.com.
