July 14, 2013:|
I am currently working on a project that you might be interested in. I am searching Historic Oregon Newspapers and the Grant County News (in particular), Canyon City, Oregon (1879-1908) online for marriages, births, deaths/obits, and stories of interest and putting them on FindAGrave memorials and sometimes creating new memorials. These old newspapers are frequently difficult to read and therefore the news clips may be difficult, but not impossible, to read. I don't have time to attempt to Photoshop them to make them easier to read but I wouldn't put them on the memorials if they weren't readable. There are approximately 50 newspapers on this website (70 newspapers as of July 2013 so 20 more have been added) and they seemed to share news stories probably because some of the newspapers were owned by the same person. There is so much history "hiding" in these old newspapers - you would be amazed! If you want to search yourself - go to this link:
Here is another great link to The Historical Oregonian 1861-1987:
Here is a link to the California Digital Newspapers:
Please DON'T use the Virtual Flowers feature to post corrections as I get no notice when a VF is posted and therefore can't add or make corrections. Use the VFs only for tributes and condolences as per F.A.G. guidelines.
Please contact me using the "Edit" tab on a memorial if you find any errors in my data entry OR if you have any additional information (i.e., obituaries, links to family, maiden names for women or nicknames) that I might add to my postings. BE SURE WHEN YOU REQUEST A LINK that you also give the name of the person(s) that you want the links made to (parents and spouses) as I have received several memorial #s that are obviously incorrect when I make the link(s).
PLEASE PLEASE ADD PHOTOS TO MEMORIALS. THIS IS VERY IMPORTANT AS YOU MAY HAVE THE ONLY EXISTING PHOTOS!!!
When you photograph in a cemetery, please take photos of the cemetery entrance and a picturesque view(s) of the cemetery in the event the home page for the cemetery does not have a photo(s) of the cemetery. Then you can post your photo(s) to the home page. ALSO, please don't take photos looking down on a headstone unless there is engraving on top of the headstone. If possible, squat to take a photo as it will be a much better photo.
I am willing to consider transfering ownership to you if you have a family member among my records. PLEASE use the "Edit" tab on the memorial you want transferred and then "Suggest a correction..." I may not transfer to you if the number of memorials that you manage is significantly greater than the number that you have contributed OR if you are only working on your own family and not contributing to the FAG community as a whole.
NOTICE: If you want to use any of my photos that I have posted on FAG you are welcome to do so as long as it is for genealogical research and is neither immoral or illegal!
I liked going to cemeteries as a child, looking at headstones and listening to my relatives talk about deceased family members. Most years, I went with my grandparents, Arch and Manila Jones, to the Monument Cemetery, Grant County, Oregon which was a weed patch except for Memorial Day when family would get together and bring flowers and clean off the graves and visit.
I hope to help others by posting memorials and photos of pioneer cemeteries in Central and Eastern Oregon and the Willamette Valley, Oregon.
My most exciting experience was in June 2008 in Kilbride Cemetery near Ritter, Grant County, Oregon, when I reached behind a small headstone to clip weeds so I could take a photo and encountered a large snake coiled behind the headstone! This cemetery also had a race horse buried there whose name was "Pin Ears". Experiences like these make my search more fun!
Please use the "Edit" tab on my memorials if you have a correction or information for that memorial.

|Erin ||DeCristoforo photos|
I was at the cemetery today, but I got there and the office was closed early! So I attempted to search the section they were buried in with some others I was looking for and just about gave up as it was almost dark! I let out a sigh, looked over and saw a flock of little birds across in what I thought was another section, so I decided to walk towards them on my way back up the hill, as I arrived they flew away there was the DeCristoforo's headstone! Some little birdies told me where to find them! :-)

I will be in Ukiah on Monday and will take the photo you requested of Donald Tracy. There are a number of Tracy's that are family members. Would you like me to get their photos at the same time. A list of the ones you need would be great.
Thank you so much for posting the links to the Oregon and California newspapers. You are right the old papers are wonderful.

Forget my earlier message! Something was weird with the site and I found your Memorial to William. I am having the duplicate of William's Memorial deleted as soon as possible!
|Rebecca Dunlap||William Van Bebber|
What happened to your Memorial? I got control of William's duplicate Memorial and I asked Find a Grave to delete mine because yours had so much good info, plus you sponsored it. Where did it go? I am upset if I may have inadvertently caused you a problem! I wanted yours to remain, and mine to be deleted. Please write me back, and if you want this other Memorial you may certainly have it.
|Rebecca Dunlap||RE: Wm. Van Beeber|
Sure and its nothing! Have a great Evening!
|Ellen Notbohm||RE: Ned and Charity Binford|
Happy to help. And the location was already on the memorials, towards the bottom where there is a field marked "Plot."
