I have always been interested in family history, asking questions since I was a little girl. I took a genealogy class at church, and that was when my life changed forever. I was introduced to the computer, and the internet.
I have found people I didn't know. I found out their life stories, some of which really surprised and at times shocked me. I have also found living cousins who share my passion or a better word now is addiction.
I have also met some wonderful friends.

But, with the good comes the bad. I have also met some really mean people too. And, in this wonderful business of searching out and preserving our family history,this makes me sad.

I do want to point out, that I appreciate all of the volunteers who have created these memorials, and the volunteers who take and post photos on this site. As in anything worthwhile, it really does take a village. We cannot do all of this alone.

With that said, I am not a "collector" of memorials, of people I am not in some way related to, or do not know. I only want to manage family, which includes extensions of my family. I am still fairly new on this site, and I am learning through trial and error to make sure my memorials are correct. If I have a duplicate, it was NOT created on purpose. If I am aware of one, I try to rectify that, and ask for cooperation, not a power struggle over "ownership". To me, that is either silly, or selfish. I also don't need anyone to lecture me. I am an adult. I have reasonable thinking abilities, and I am willing to work with anyone if approached in a respectful, and courteous manner.

I understand the "guidelines" of Find-A-Grave, for direct family lines, and transfers. This should also include our spouses family. It is silly to me that we have to have two separate accounts to achieve the same goal.

I personally feel that family memorials should be willingly and lovingly transferred to family members. We are the ones who truly care about them.

I do not need to "Own" all of them,but I do want them to be as correct as possible, therefore,I have done a lot of edit requests.
I always leave a flower on their memorials, out of love, respect, and as a reminder that I was there to provide correct information and family links.

If I can be of help to anyone, please ask.
Carol Lynn

RE: Kelley's at Woodlawn Cemetery
I have no problem transferring none family members to their family. I am trying to transfer as many as I can. I would like to eventually just manage my family and stuff.

Ollie or Mollie Kelley
Did she go by Alice? As there is an obituary for a Alice Kelley on 21 Nov 1927 in the Terre Haute Tribune on page 2. This would add up to be this lady as she was interred on 23 Nov 1927 at the age of 63.

I have no idea what that means as cause of death. If I would guess - maybe some kind of infection like gangrene or possibly an attempted amputation.

Lin and Birdie Goode
Hello Carol. I have a question about the picture of Lin and Birdie that you posted. Are you a decendent of their's? I have the same exact picture that was given to my great grandparents Ed and Ada Goode (Lin's uncle and aunt). Just very interested in knowing more about them and their family.

Thanks so much!

RE: Leslie Edwin Cram - 110498154
Hi Carol, Glad to meet you! So sorry this is
so late, life gets in the way sometimes and it
was my intention to add Gladys and some other
family members, but I haven't yet.
Yes Gladys is in Montecito Cemetary right
by Leslie and other family members from Ca.
Gladys was my step Grandmother and raised 2
of my cousins Linda and Steve. She was like
a Mother to my cousin Linda as Gladys never had
kids of her own, and was the only Grandmother I
knew on my Mom's side.
We will be going to the cemetery in May, would you like a pic and exact site of Gladys resting
place? Jennifer

Hi, I was helping a cousin w/ the tombstone project so if there was no headstone, she might have been overlooked. You might make a memorial for her w/o a location. I've done this and then on a few occasions, I've had people contact me w/ the location.
