Bio and Links
Hi, I AM 63 RETIRED,AND AN AVID GENEALOGIST. FAMILY HISTORY IS VERY IMPORTANT TO ME,AND IF BY TAKING PICTURES,I CAN IN SOME WAY SAVE A LITTLE PART OF PEOPLE'S HISTORY,THEN I FEEL LIKE I'VE ACCOMPLISHED SOMETHING. I LIVE IN ODESSA,TEXAS,
AND WILL GLADLY CHECK OUT CEMETERIES WITHIN A 200 MILE RADIUS, AND FARTHER IF I CAN. IF I HAVE MADE A MISTAKE OR IF I LIST SOMEONE THAT YOU WANT TRANSFERRED ,LET ME KNOW.
FEEL FREE TO USE MY PHOTO'S;JUST PLEASE GIVE ME CREDIT FOR TAKING THEM OR OWNING THEM.-- I have the only photo of one of my great grandmother's on here. Someone added it to their family tree on Ancestry.com with no mention of where they got it,or what family link it came from. Now it's being added from one tree to another,without anyone being aware of our link into that family.I don't think that is right.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
If anyone comes across "ANY" family of theirs I've listed and you would like to manage their memorial's,just let me know.I don't do this to build up numbers,but to try and save as much family history on these stones as I can.It doesn't matter to me how close or how far apart the family link may be.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
I read a tip the other day from contributor" Lady In Black" ,that I intend to start following. Since I add a lot of photos this would indeed make it easier to keep track of ones I need to look for again.

{ When adding a tombstone photo if it is one of the funeral home markers enter it as 'other' which will make it possible to know that person still needs a 'tombstone' photo added.)
-----------------
Don't want to ruffle any feathers,but I would like to ask that when you are sending me death locations or other info, & if you are only going by the SSDI, please do further research before doing so. A lot of people are taking what the SSDI has listed as proof positive that what it has is the place they died.That's not always so.If you click on the SSDI link it states that the location listed is the last place of residence .I've had people send me death location on the new edit tab or other info,I'll add it,then have someone else get upset that I'm listing incorrect info.

Thank you for taking the picture of my grandma grave, she died before i was born and after my grandpa remarried, he wasn't allowed to acknowledge her, even though it was my fathers mom, I have finally post death bia graves linked them again, so she is not forgotten. Seeing her grave means more to me than you will ever know, again thank you.

RE: James Walker
LaDonna,
I deleted the Death Certificate as you requested. I'm sorry it took so long to get around to doing this.

RE: Pablo Vasquez
I just saw the duplication and let you know about. Not sure about obit info. I have never gotten any complaints. People have thanked me for putting the obit on the memorials because they had to pay to get an old obit. Have a great day and keep helping others find their family history.

Mary Elizabeth Adams #172218658

Dear LaDonna
Would you mind transferring my GG Grandfather's daughter to me Rosie Belle Estoll #83204956. I had to unlink Rosie from her mother Mary because we had Mary in the wrong Pleasant Mound Cemetery (there are 2 Pleasant Mound cemeteries; I had Mary in the old Pleasant Mound Cemetery instead of the new one!). The New Memorial for Mary Elizabeth Adams is #172218658. I was able to link all of Mary's children that I have except Rosie because Rosie is not my Momerial! You have taken very good care of Rosie but I thought now is a good time to ask for a Transfer. If it were not for your Kindness to walk cemeteries I would not be able to have Rosie & I am so very thankful for folks like you... Mary Elizabeth Adams was married to my GG Grandfather Eli Adams. I will look forward to hearing back from you.
HAPPY HOLIDAYS

Thank you, first LaDonna for taking the great photo of Johnnie's memorial and again, for answering so quick! Went about the process backwards. I believe there has been enough time for them to get the inscription on there, but would understand if you want to wait until you have additional requests.

Lilla Mae Bramlett Scott
I've left a name change edit request through proper channels, but wanted to explain. Lilla Mae was my aunt. She was married to Leonard Scott until he died in 1959. Then she married Ed Hart. They were married only a short time before she died in 1964. So that's probably why they buried her with Leonard. Just wanted to clarify her maiden name as Bramlett, not Hart. Thanks for all you do.
