Bio and Links
Bio Photo When I was a little girl, my parents would drive through the local cemeteries on a Sunday, for something to do. (no tv then). We would look at the markers and the names and try to think about who that person was and what their life was like. If it was a child's grave, we would always feel sad. My little granddaughter likes cemeteries, too, so maybe it is in the genes. :)

RE: Memorial# 28031134
Thank you so very much Elenaor! I can't wait until the weather warms up so I can start really getting into this to not only record history but "reunite" families. I am truly grateful. Thanks for all your help!

I just realized somehow I had this confused...i think?.?. haha anyway here is the memorial # of my grandmother from the czech. I think i originally posted to the wrong place. I really appreciate your dedication and kindness of transferring me so I can tell her amazing story. I cannot truly express my feelings. Shes been gone for almost 19 yrs.; feels like yesterday. God bless you ~Kim

Hi Eleanor, I am new here at F/G. Anyhow, I was wondering if you wouldn't mind transferring my grandma Helen to my care. We(my family) was the closest thing she had to real family. She left(ran away to be more exact) czechoslovakia when she was 18 with her fiance' on a ship. She was never able to go back to the czech b/c the ship ride was too much for her to bear. She never saw her blood relatives again. She wrote them, sent money etc. Her fiance' John passed before they could get married. I still have her engagement ring. She couldn't have been more my grandmother if she had been blood. Therefore if you don't mind I would really like to be able to tell her story and manage her memorial. Thanks for any help you might be able to give. ~Kim

TRANSFER REQUEST and correction...Oops, Emma & Sebastian memorials have each others names listed twice as spouses. They are my great great grandparents.

RE: Buchanan Cemetery
Eleanor, thanks for all your help. I'll try to get out there after the new year on a warm day and before the weeds start growing. I have always been out that way in the summertime so Hopefully I'll see that cemetery sign. Carla :)

RE: Buchanan Cemetery
I have never seen the sign for this cemetery anytime I have been out that way.

RE: Buchanan Cemetery
Thanks Eleanor, I'll try to look for that road again sometime in the Spring before all the weeds start growing again. I'll let you know if I find it. Thanks, Carla :)

Eleanor, thanks for sending me that message. I wrote you a message but I didn't realize that it went to your daughter instead of you. I look for that road on the right but I can never find which road to turn onto. Does it have a name or is it like someone's driveway? Is it before you get into Limestone? Carla:)
