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.

NOTE: ALL OBITUARIES I POST TO MEMORIALS, STATE THE NAME OF THE NEWSPAPER AND THE DATE THE OBITUARY WAS PUBLISHED.

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.

West Side
Many Many of my Sowell/Knight relatives are buried at West Side. A few weeks ago I decided to start adding back my direct lines with all children and parents attached. Now I see that Find a Grave has listed back the original entries under Find A Grave's name and an old 5 or 6 yr date (probably Peka's original date of entry) with no children or parents listed. I worked with Pete to add children & parents, so I know it was on his original entries. Find a Grave is causing more problems - not helping. Now, my entries look like dups since they are only a few weeks old. I am so upset!

Westside
I was browsing the new adds at Westside and I saw that Ethel Porter McManus had been added recently. I am assuming that you are adding some of the memorials ones that have been deleted. Ethel Porter McManus was my dad's aunt.
Thanks for your contributions to Findagrave.

Deleted Memorials Lancaster County, SC
I have been checking the Westside and Memorial Park memorials to see what has been added in the last 7-30 days. I saw that you have added several and I didn't know if this was a new memorials or if you were adding back some of the ones that had been deleted by Peka. I had many family members that were deleted at several cemeteries in Lancaster. I have been checking primarily to see if Findagrave was making progress in recovering these records. Thanks

"Thank You" for the link to Mr Threatt's parents. Evidently I started something I did not finish.

Thanks so much,

Oh, so it wasn't a glitch or accident?

Do you know what happened with Peka's account? A lot of the Lancaster memorials are missing. And some of their other entries are transferred to Find A Grave.

If his wife was Mary E., she's buried with him (or at least the tombstone says so.
