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: Ruth N Kettinger
Ms White -

Sorry for not replying before now, but the lady you described is simply not my Aunt Trudy (Gertrude Turner Bennett, my father's older sister.)

She was only married once - to Elmer F Bennett of Longmont, CO, who went on to become the Under Secretary of Interior under President Eisenhower.

The facts you put forth are simply incorrect and must belong to another person - possibly with the same name(?).

Sorry. I wish you well.

William (Bill) Turner

I posted your note on Ollie's memorial page. I wonder who thought it was 1880 (and then etched it in stone?). I will leave the date as is for now but with your note (with your member number for future reference) perhaps some one can provide more concrete evidence so we can know for sure. Thanks!

What can you tell me about Lois's daughter Barbara Lou Howard Nice? My mother and I do ancestry, and are adding information to our tree. This is my grandmother's side, as my grandmother is Betty Louise Smith Tidwell.
