I have enjoyed genealogy as a hobby (my family says addiction) for over 30 years. Apparently I inherited this interest from both sides of my family. My paternal great-grandmother was left motherless at age 18 months and raised by a foster family. After she married, she was committed to learning all she could about her birth family, passing this interest to her daughter and granddaughters. I was very fortunate to have access to their records to build on when I began my own research. My maternal grandmother was a source of inspiration and encouragement until her death at age 92. Her correspondence with family members provided me with many clues to help research our family.

I photographed all of Goodrich Cemetery in Linn County, KS, and parts of other local cemeteries, but most of the memorials I've posted are for family members. If you copy a personal family photo that I've posted, please give credit. This gives other researchers a reference if they have questions. If you have additional info or are related, I would love to hear from you. Thank you to all who have taken the time to add flowers and photos.

Unseen, unheard, but always near,
Still loved, still missed and very dear.

Charles F Griffith
Hi, Kim! I saw you posted a flower on Charles' memorial, buried in Mountain Grove Cemetery, Farlinville, Linn Cty, KS. Is he family? I'm trying to locate the memorial for a Charles Griffith who died March 1923, as he had a very brief second marriage to a 2nd great aunt, Ina Awbrey Sullivan. Thanks for any light you can shed on THIS Charles, if he's family!

Westlawn-Hillcrest Vets
We are currently working to identify anyone buried in Westlawn-Hillcrest Cemetery Omaha NE that has served in the military. If you have a loved one buried there or know of someone, please send us a message. We place flags on the graves for Memorial Day. This project is sponsored by Centennial Masonic Lodge #326.

If you can send us the names, we will be sure to include them on our list to get a flag.

Thank you for the help with this ongoing project.

Thanks, Kim, for your reply. I've asked the person multiple times to remove the picture without luck. I noticed the problem again today, and sent the edit quickly without thinking it through. I'm sorry to bother you! -- judi
