I have always been interested in family history, asking questions since I was a little girl. I took a genealogy class at church, and that was when my life changed forever. I was introduced to the computer, and the internet.
I have found people I didn't know. I found out their life stories, some of which really surprised and at times shocked me. I have also found living cousins who share my passion or a better word now is addiction.
I have also met some wonderful friends.

But, with the good comes the bad. I have also met some really mean people too. And, in this wonderful business of searching out and preserving our family history,this makes me sad.

I do want to point out, that I appreciate all of the volunteers who have created these memorials, and the volunteers who take and post photos on this site. As in anything worthwhile, it really does take a village. We cannot do all of this alone.

With that said, I am not a "collector" of memorials, of people I am not in some way related to, or do not know. I only want to manage family, which includes extensions of my family. I am still fairly new on this site, and I am learning through trial and error to make sure my memorials are correct. If I have a duplicate, it was NOT created on purpose. If I am aware of one, I try to rectify that, and ask for cooperation, not a power struggle over "ownership". To me, that is either silly, or selfish. I also don't need anyone to lecture me. I am an adult. I have reasonable thinking abilities, and I am willing to work with anyone if approached in a respectful, and courteous manner.

I understand the "guidelines" of Find-A-Grave, for direct family lines, and transfers. This should also include our spouses family. It is silly to me that we have to have two separate accounts to achieve the same goal.

I personally feel that family memorials should be willingly and lovingly transferred to family members. We are the ones who truly care about them.

I do not need to "Own" all of them,but I do want them to be as correct as possible, therefore,I have done a lot of edit requests.
I always leave a flower on their memorials, out of love, respect, and as a reminder that I was there to provide correct information and family links.

If I can be of help to anyone, please ask.
Carol Lynn

Is this really true that she is gone. I have been looking for my sister for years and could not find her. I have moved to Colorado hoping to find her but not this way. Can you tell me how she passed away and when so I can let the rest of the family know. After our dad did she quit talking with the family. Looked for her to let her know that our sister had passed and more family had. Please let me know more if you can.

Thanks, Georgia Mears Smith

Oh your welcome! I have some more as well. He was actually creamated and let go at pismo beach, ca. He wanted to be in the water because he said the best years of his life was when he was in the navy.

Did you ever find any information out on the baby ivey his brother.

My dad told me a story that they were going to get taken into the states care when he was I believe 14 and he hid in a tree and than was a run away until he enlisted in the navy. He said his brother was taken into the states care.

He also had either a step sister of half sister Elda in Oregon that we flew out to see a few times when I was very young.

Hi there,

I was wondering if you are related to my grandfather/ father legally adopted. Thank you for posting his memorial.

Hope to hear from you,
