I'm a long time family genealogist, have made use of many genealogy web pages, and have decided it's time to do my part as a volunteer, as many others have done, by placing sometimes very difficult to locate birth and death dates in Findagrave. Some of my entries are for family but the most are from 'just going down the rows' in cemeteries available. My hope is that I'm helping at least a few unknown genealogists with information.

A word of caution to the unsuspecting:
Along with obituaries, gravestones are NOT infalliable in accuracy, most often having a partially incorrect date for the birth date. My experience has shown gravestones to be inaccurate in one date or another at least 5% of the time. Birth and marriage dates in obituaries have a higher rate of inaccuracy. Even death dates on gravestones are subject to error as I have found in many years of researching.

Could you please add Bartley to Joyce Anne's name in "daughter of John and Joyce Anne Hendricks" Her mother's maiden name was Bartley and it was please her. My brother John second wife name is also Joyce Anne.
I think Wanda's stone has been updated,so when I get to the cemetery I will add that.
You have done a good job but if would like you can transfer their memorials to me and I can do it.

What type of camera do you use?
Hi Gary-
It's time for me to get a new camera. I've notice that you pic are very clear and sharp. I was hoping you would share what type of camera you use. Thank you for your time and consideration, Carol

Mount Royal Cemetery
Hi Gary,
We respectfully request permission to use the entrance photo in our personal tree. Bruce has a cousin interred there and the photo will make a great addition to our tree.

Thanks for your consideration.

Elizabeth Patterson Knapp
Hi. Elizabeth Knapp wife of Pvt. Lucius H Knapp is my GG Grandmother. Through Lucius and Elizabeth's daughter Florence Genette "Nettie" Knapp.Florence was enumerated as Dolly on the 1860 Census of Lucius and Elizabeth.Under Court records in Elkhart County you can find Lucius Knapp's Minor Heir papers with Sarah, Harriet ,Martha, and Florence.I have the marriage record of Elizabeth Patterson and Lucius Knapp. Was wondering if you'd add her maiden name. Also you have Harriet dying in the 1940's? Do you know who she married? I know what happened to Florence and Martha R "Mattie" Knapp. Both married Hogue boys. I never could figure out anything on Sarah or Harriet. You have a birth and death date for Harriet on Elizabeth's memorial. I would love to know more about her. I also have information on Lucius. His father is Henry A. Knapp

RE: Grave location
OK Gary, I guess I will have to walk the cemetery also. I want to visit them because they are my great, great grand parents. I hope it is the right cemetery when I go because no one seems to have their records.
Thank you very much,

Grave location
Gary, I am searching for Henry Meinhardt 1833 - 1895 Memorial #23239450. I see on find a grave you posted him as being buried at Saint Johns Cemetery on Buente Street. I want to view his grave and take pictures and would like to pinpoint the location so I don't have to walk the entire cemetery. I have contacted Saint Johns Church and the cemetery caretaker and both say they have no records Of Henry or his Wife Maria Memorial #23239477. I have a map of the cemetery. Can you tell me the location?

I found out a new feature on Findagrave. Go to the Contributor Page on your name and look at the Edit Tab at the top right. If you click on that it will show request for you to accept or decline for adding birth and death dates, locations and states. Doesn't allow any connection to parents yet. Hope this info helps.
