|Bio and Links|
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. 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.
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.
My core family names are: On my father's side, White,Sarvis,Kay,Heffner. My mother's side, Deicken, Hellweg, Walkenhorst, Kemner.
If I can be of help to anyone, please ask.

The EDITs I have sent regarding links to parents of Jos T Atkins 145227072 are based on the fact that he is the son of my 1st cousin, Chloe Mae FALLS.

|Linda Bosso||Miranda Wymore|
This may be a coincidence, but I have person by the same name married to my great, grandather, Edward Lundy, from Tracy, IA . They were both widower and widow when they married. She had a daughter, Mary "Janetta" Wymore who eventually married George Lundy, a widower. I don't have any other information about Miranda, but I thought it was an interesting connection.

|Hoosier||RE: Harvey Hazel|
Glad to hear from you that you liked it. I am 1st. cousin 3 time removed to Harvey. My daddy worked for Grant at his music store in Bloomington and was a pallbearer at his funeral. I obtained Harvey's book that he wrote in longhand and Marthana Walters got it printed in 1984. I was able to find a new copy on Amazon.com for $8.00. They had used copies for less. The Name of it is "Under the Chinquapin Tree".

You're very welcome. I'm sorry I couldn't catch it in sun. There was a deciduous tree shading it but an oak if I remember correctly so probably shaded until spring. I could try for a snow photo or a sunny photo next spring if you'd like.
