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 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:
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.

|Judy K. Roberts||RE: Sylvester Waltman:)|
I found another memorial for Sylvester with last name of
Waltman. I did not notice the spelling of the memorial
Until after I put the photo on. I contacted the person,
she created both. Hopefully she will delete the incorrect
One. Thank you!
|Judy K. Roberts||RE: Sylvester Waltman|
Are you not happy with the photo?
|Deb Shepherd||RE: James, Frank, and Hester Leslie|
You are more than welcome.When we were up there they were digging the grave for Jerry Leslie. He will be placed at the foot of his parents.
|DeeAnn||RE: Leo Walton|
It as my pleasure to help ... God bless you!

I seen where you put in some photo requests for some graves at Leslie Cemetery in Emma Kentucky. I was just recently up on the hill ducumenting the Bill Sherman Cemetery which lies right next to the Leslie Cemetery. I went through some photos and was able to find three of your requests. If you do not want to use these photos please let me know and I will delete them. I do have an uncle that is buried in the Leslie and I have entered him, Claude, he was the brother to Frank, James, etc. I did know some of the Leslie's because of my aunt and uncle. I do not live in Kentucky so this was a rare treat for me to take the photos.
I have deleted mine.

I have added the photo to your profile of Anna. Sorry it isn't better quality. If you would like to add the cemetery name to your profile of her, I will delete mine.
Thank you :)

Hello, I was looking at photo requests and see that your request for a photo for Charles Grant is still there but your message said you were removing it. Just thought I would let you know. Take care.
Thank you for the obituary but Linda Werts has added the obituary as photos.

Thanks Pam. There has been so much questioning about his parents on Ancestry.com. Is there a way that I can get a copy of that document on-line? I live in Florida. Julie
