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

Did George marry a second time after Lettie died? There was an Anna (1890-1974) buried to the left of George and Lettie (1888-1917) is buried to the right of George. Just wondering. I created a memorial for Anna and posted the photos I took. I will be more than happy to transfer Anna to you if she is part of your family.

While fulfilling your photo requests this afternoon, I found a stone for George SARVIS 1887-1950 in Graceland Cemetery in the same area as his parents. Perhaps you want to add him to Graceland Cemetery, Avoca, Iowa? Location is Section 7 Row 16. Barb

There were 4 living children. 1 daughter and 3 sons. I am not aware to the one you mentioned. I have been working on the Hanner Family Tree for several years. If there is anything that I can help you with please let me know. Would prefer to share info thru e-mail.

RE: Mary Hunnicutt
Consider it done! Sometimes two photos are good to reflect what the marker was like during the seasons. But am removing the other one, and thanks for your input!

Hi Carol-

I was able to find a better pic in my files for the marker of Mary Hunnicutt, and just wanted to let you know. Let me know if you would like me to send to you. I posted on her memorial, #6384576.

Cheers from Edmonds!

Charles Campbell
I got your request regarding Charles' father. I noticed there are several Colin S. Campbells on findagrave. Is one of them his father? If so, let me know which one and I would be able to link them as opposed to just showing Colin in the bio.
