I hope what I've contributed to Find A Grave helps others as I was helped and is perceived as respectful and caring, as these were my intentions. I discovered this site because of my love for genealogy, and after finding many ancestors here, I joined to honor family not previously listed. Once I started, I realized how much interest I had in cemeteries. I now see what peaceful, sacred places they are, filled with touching tributes and the history of our past generations. I suppose every genealogist eventually comes to this realization.|
In memorializing my direct relatives, I also added indirect relatives and cemetery neighbors to alleviate gaps. If you have additional or corrective information, just let me know using the convenient 'Edit' feature. Likewise, I am happy to transfer anyone to whom I'm not related (just ask). My hope in transferring is that you will add more to the memorial than I was able (like a full biography). I'd love to see every memorial maintained by a close relative or loved one that can make the memorial into a tribute and this site into a virtual place that's almost as special as the physical final resting places. Our ancestors deserve that!
The Arkansas PBS network (AETN) produced an Emmy-winning documentary in 2010, Silent Storytellers, which beautifully emphasizes the need to preserve our cemeteries as priceless connections to our history. I highly recommend it for my fellow members; you don't have to be a resident of Arkansas to appreciate it. Director/co-producer Hop Litzwire uploaded the documentary onto YouTube, which you can access by clicking here.
