|Bio and Links|
I started doing genealogy in 1996, when my husband's family passed around old photos and other information at a family reunion. I have been hooked every since!|
I am not sure how I stumbled onto the Findagrave site, but when I saw what they were doing, I decided to start putting on-line the information that I have. Then I realized the potential of this site, by housing grave stones before cemeteries could be destroyed by moving or vandals, I started driving to area cemeteries and copying headstone information.
Instead of creating memorial pages, I am concentrating on getting the "138 Million" memorials linked together. Don't get me wrong, I still make memorial pages as well as photograph cemeteries, however, my main interest right now is getting families linked together.
Please do not duplicate memorials! It makes it difficult to link families together and/or complete cemeteries when there are duplications. First do a search of the whole website AND then if you know the cemetery, search the cemetery as well...Thank you for your consideration.
Please make note: It is NOT a "numbers" game to me, I do this to honor the deceased! I spend upwards of 10+ hours a day on the computer working on findagrave.com. It does not matter who has the memorial page, if I can add information, I send it to the creator, if it is a relative and I have a photo, I add it to the memorial page...what is important here is NOT that I have maintenance of a relative's memorial page, it is that someone cared enough to go out and photograph that memorial so that I and future generations can see the headstone!
Not to upset or belittle anyone, but I WILL ONLY MAKE PERMANENT TRANSFERS WITHIN THE GUIDELINES OF FINDAGRAVE.COM that being 4 GENERATIONS: Spouses, Parents, Brothers and Sisters, Children, Grand-children, Grandparents, and Great-grandparents. Please use the "EDIT" tab to ask for EACH transfer. PLEASE STATE YOUR RELATIONSHIP TO THE DECEASED and your member id#, without these, your request will be deleted.
For EXTENDED FAMILY MEMBERS or all other requests, I will gladly make additions, corrections or links. PLEASE USE the "EDIT" TAB on the upper right-hand corner of the memorial to send the information. This sends me a direct link to the memorial page required to make the changes. I delete all requests left on my "bio" page or sent to me in a e-mail. Don't forget to send the memorial numbers for links.
If you are seeking transfer to "have all my family together" ~ use the virtual cemetery button. Then all of the memorials will be in the same "cemetery", and you can look at them daily.
Please DO NOT leave biographical information and obituaries in a virtual flower. This is against findagrave.com policy...and the flower will be reported as "abused". As stated, I do make corrections when asked, as well as as try to give credit where credit is due.
Thanks to all of you who have sent additional information for the memorials.
I have also joined Find a Grave Volunteers of Indiana.

|DLTripp||Thomas Leonard (Mem #35678949)|
Under the bio for Thomas Leonard (Memorial #35678949) you have listed children, including (last) a James. I have been researching the Leonards of Orange County, Indiana, since 1994 and have no record of Thomas having a son named James. Could you please share your source for this info?

|Kathleen Warner Austin||Linking Family Memorials|
Thanks so much for adding the infomation to Charlie Lewis' memorial #53828368. He was my 2nd great uncle. I really enjoyed reading about your "genealogy fever!" I love doing exactly the same thing, although on a much smaller scale--linking the family memorials together, so that family members are "together" again. Thanks so much! Kathi Austin
|BK Evans||William Gilmore|
hi! I'm Kate Evans (email@example.com) and I'm William's 4x great-granddaughter, working on family history. I noticed on your memorial for William, you list a brother and sister for him that I had no knowledge of. May I ask your source? I know that William and John Lincoln Sr came here around 1837 from either Ireland or Scotland (depends on which side of the family is winning the argument today), but have not been able to find any other family, other than a vague implication that John's mother's maiden name was Hall. If you have records for those two siblings, that would be fantastic!
Happy Ancestor Hunting!

|James Craig||Craig Genealogy|
I have been actively involved in Genealogy for a very long time and I really enjoy it. Especially when it concerns my Fathers family - My Craig line - and my Mothers family - that would be the Fry Side of my family. I obtain a tremendous amount of information from Find A Grave and it will almost always be accurate so believe me I appreciate the work you do. However, You may be missing some info on my Craigs. William David Craig ancestor that you have info on I need a little help with. Nora Crawford Craig & william married 16 Oct 1913 and secondly to Iva E Manhurin Craig in abt 1929. Now does that mean that Freda Myers in the off spring of Will and Iva or Freda Myers was the mother of ___?who? I am not sure which. Also I have information that I also hope is accurate but I am not sure. I have one Josephine L. Craig as an off spring of William David & Nora and you don't have her listed. Was she still born and not listed? As you see I need a little help.

I was sent this message when I requested a photo; that's what the messages said.

|Gina||MY Photo request for Leona Morgan|
They also reported, specifically:
Denning Cemetery is not in Benton, IL. It is in Orient, Franklin County, Illinois. There is no listing of a Leona Morgan in either of the two Denning Cemetery books. There is a Leona A. Morgan listed in Masonic and Odd Fellows at Benton, Illinois...interment #8906. B: 1873 D: 1964
Due to this problem, we believe that this photo request can not be fulfilled. As a result, we are removing it. If you can fix the problems that were reported and believe a photo can be acquired, pleLink to memorial page for Leona Morgan: http://www.findagrave.com/cgi-bin/fg.cgi?page=gr&GRid=32283775
Link to contributor reporting error: http://www.findagrave.com/cgi-bin/fg.cgi?page=mr&MRid=47734417
ase feel free to make a new request.
