You have my permission to use any headstone photo I have posted, as you wish.|
IF I HAVE CREATED A MEMORIAL OR LEFT FLOWERS AT ONE, THAT DOES NOT MEAN I KNEW THAT PERSON.
If you are responding to me because of an "edit" I sent to you or a memorial I made, PLEASE include the memorial number or the URL to that page. A simple mention of their name is not enough.
I will gladly make changes or corrections, no matter how small, if you request them. PLEASE do this by clicking on "edit" at the upper-right corner of the memorial, use their form to notify me by email. If this is your loved one, I would prefer transferring management to you. Just ask, same process.
I'm always happy to transfer to any family member. I'll never understand the reluctance of some contributors to let go of the memorials of strangers simply because they've created them. That's why we do it isn't it? For their family to find them. That's why I do it.
I have always enjoyed visiting cemeteries, especially the older, historical sections, long before I knew any of the "residents"... I am a regular visitor to Lower Lake Cemetery as it is nearest to me and I have friends and family there.
I began making entries at Find a Grave, first with ancestor's info, my parents in Hayward, then Lower Lake Cemetery because I have lived here for so long, I knew or know of many of the "residents." I knew many of these people personally and/or their families. I am not related to any of them directly. Two sets of in-laws, including my husband, many friends, high-school teachers and classmates, the doctor that delivered my son, etc., etc. My son has eight grandparents in this cemetery counting the greats- and steps-. My parents are in a Hayward cemetery because they made their own pre-need arrangements. If they were here, I would take care of them too. Thanks to Find A Grave I am able to "visit" them, add virtual flowers and notes, gather them and their families into virtual cemeteries I made for that purpose, and so on. I love that we can request headstone photos for those distant graves and get them! Usually. I DON'T LOVE THE FUSS ABOUT COPYRIGHT ISSUES THAT OCCUR OCCASIONALLY.
Every time I start to work on my family tree, I get side-tracked in the local cemetery. Since the beginning of 2011, I have been systematically photographing all the tombstones there and making memorials here. I REPEAT, FEEL FREE TO USE ANY HEADSTONE PHOTOS I HAVE ADDED AS YOU WISH!
I am always researching AKRIDGE and HAVENHILL/HEAVENHILL/HIMMELBERGER family trees... when I'm not getting lost in my neighboring cemetery.

|Phyllis Medeiros||Martha Darnell|
Thank you for the death date. I have added the information. Now if someone could just decide if the last name is spelled Darnell or Darnall . . since it is used both ways. My mother used to say we had both Darnells and Darnalls. I'll just go by what they put on the tombstone and hope it wasn't misspelled. Thanks again.

Thank you for the Family Links and for the transfer.
Thanks for leaving a token for a family member of mine :)
|Libby Talley||RE: Hello Libby|
I haven't been able to be on the computer all that much. My Dad ended up in ICU for a long period of time and then the hospital for almost two weeks. He was in rehab for a few weeks and just got home yesterday. While he was in rehab I took care of my mom on a full-time basis because she has Alzheimer's. They don't have the a computer or anything at their house so I wasn't around the computer, except on the occasion there was a free one at the hospital. Then I just posted short updates about my Dad.
Now that he's home, I'm going to try to be on the computer more. I really miss communicating with everyone.
Thanks for your kindness. It's greatly appreciated. :) (((HUGS)))

I have worked with Judy on several group projects to link and correct family member memorials, and have found her to be a joy to work with. She always responds, and is willing to help other contributors improve their skills and knowledge about the ins and outs of Find A Grave. She's the best!
|Penny Spangler||RE: The Transfer of Chester Kamp|
Thank you for transferring the memorial of my Uncle over for my care. I am working on updating his information.
Again Thank you for all you do on the find a grave website.
|Courtney White||RE: Akridge descendant|
Yes, the furthest back this site takes me is John Wesley Akridge, born 1854 in GA. Thanks for letting me know about William! Any idea what country he or his line came from? I assume it was England? Thanks again :)
|Courtney White||Akridge desensant|
Hi Judy, I'm a great grand daughter of Clemmie and Oscar Akridge. I'm brand new to this site and only joined because I was looking for information about them. I was wondering how we might be related! Hazel Akridge Ross is my grandmother and she passed away recently.
|Jean Lee||Heavenhill Family|
Thank you ever so much Judy.
Your information has been invaluable to my research in behalf of a friend who has just started to wonder about his ancestors.
Being in California and not able to travel, it has been wonderful to see how much others have done and helped out all of us.

Judy, thanks for the information on the Gowan's in the Lower Lake Cemetery. I was not aware of their plot locations as I live out of state.
Are you aware if they have headstones or not? Could you get a photo for me?
Thanks Dianna (47118717)
