Bio and Links
Bio Photo My Aunt and I started researching our Ghent family and I came across Find A Grave in our ancestry searches. I was so impressed with the site that I started going to cemeteries and local libraries in search of information.
Find A Grave is a great resource and has a lot of wonderful historical information.
My goal is to be able to locate and provide as much information on each of our Ghent family members that I can find. I have found more than one set of Ghent's in our area and I am trying to see if they connect, so linking them has been a great tool.
In my many cross-eyed searches in reading small print, very old and blurry microfilm at the library, I try to keep and eye out for information on deaths, marriages, births, etc...on other local citizens and add those in hopes to help others with their genealogy endeavors.
I have received a lot of help from other members of Find A Grave and it's very much appreciated.

FAG Guidelines
May I add a death certificate to a person's memorial page?
Death certificates MAY BE ADDED via the "Add a photo" button on the memorial page. NOTE: Death certificates do not necessarily contain completely accurate information about the deceased. There are often errors regarding the final burial location (as well as other data).

Can I add an obituary to my interment listing?
You should not copy obituary notices from newspapers (or from funeral home notices or web sites) to an individual's memorial record unless you have permission from the newspaper to do so or you are the author of the obituary. SOME OBITUARIES THAT WERE PUBLISHED IN 1922 OR EARLIER ARE NOW IN THE PUBLIC DOMAIN. In general, obituaries in newspapers are submitted by the family with assistance from the funeral home. IF THE OBITUARY IS ADDED TO THE MEMORIAL RECORD, IT SHOULD LIST THE NEWSPAPER AND DATE THE OBIT WAS PRINTED for example "Published in the Hattiesburg American, Hattiesburg, Mississippi, Internet Edition, April 11, 2007". Please do not include the names of living or surviving relatives in the biography, unless you have their permission. IF YOU DO NOT HAVE PERMISSION TO COPY AN OBITUARY TO A MEMORIAL, YOU MAY PUT A NOTE STATING THE NAME OF THE NEWSPAPER AND THE DATE THE OBITUARY WAS PUBLISHED.

I am new to Ancestry and still figuring it all out. The person above was my uncle "Butch", who was killed in a car accident. I noticed on his Find-a-Grave page you had added his parents' names. Does that mean you knew them, or just found out through research? Just curious about how this works!
Thanks, Deborah

Photos for Holdens & Ingram
Thank you for taking gravestone photos for Thomas Jackson Holden, Connie Reeves Holden, and Russell Alexander Ingram. These will help us clear up some details in our genealogy research for my southern kin. I really appreciate it.

RE: Shaver - Bailey
Thank you for the directions. Is it possible for you to get the GPS coordinates? I would like to add them to the cemetery page.

Thank you for all of your help and all you have done.

Shaver Cemetery
One more question.......
The stones for the Shavers and Bailey's don't look like stones from the late 1800's. Did you see remnants of old stones? And the Old Cemeteries book has the transcription for Emmaline's stone as "E.A. Shaver".......which also makes me think there were older stones. Looking forward to hearing what you think.
