|Bio and Links|
I research many family lines>> |
Smothers, Smethers, Smathers, SMEATHERS, Smither, Smithers, Smythers, Smitheys, Smiddys, GRASS, Longmire, STATLER, Beall/Bell, BERRY, Gentry, ASHBY, Stribling, Taliaferro, Youngman, Harris, Netherland, Lee, FOSTER, Greathouse, Showalter, Bowlus, RAMSEY, Strange, Ash, France, MILLER, HINCH, Hinsch, Hinchey, KELLY/Kelley, Butler, Clark, Dufner, May, Upton, Taylor, Day, Dowlearn, Upchurch, Turk, Reid, McElroy, Faught, Richardson, Schafer, Weymouth to list a few.
They come from Pa to NC/TN, from KY to TX.
Willing to take those of my family lines, extended families & those in our Smothers Tribe DNA project to manage when I run across them. I live in NE WA & at this time not available to search cemeteries nor take photos as physical disabilities hinder me in doing so or would do in a heartbeat. I will submit various family memorials as the information & gravestone information is gathered & given to me or I am able to do so. I gladly help anyone I can, esp along the lines I research to help connect families. It is my passion as a genial genealogist to assist others as much as possible.
...I like this I saw on a gal's page recently, "Let's make it a goal to add as much information, as we can possibly document, to these memorials."
Had to snag this from a gal's site.."I enjoy reading contributors Bio's but it's called that for a reason but Not, to use the space to reiterate F-A-G guidelines by a contributor who feels the need to preach to others about how they should make their memorials. Believing we are all adults & know the guidelines most all do act accordingly & do not need to be preached at."
I admin our Smothers Tribe DNA project 2002-2013 as well as admin at least 50+ rootsweb & ancestry mail lists & boards to help others. I live on a ranch, am happily retired and besides a heartfelt Passion for Genealogy; my beloved family of children, grandchildren, cousins & precious friends, all my critters too esp my sweet little deer herd I've made great friends with over the years; I immensely enjoy working with F-A-G and members in helping folks connect with their ancestors. Am happy to make links, corrections & transfers. I am especially appreciative of our gravestone photographers and are owed big Cudos!!
Many kind thanks to all who leave flowers on any of our ancestor memorials!~Happy Trails!
Here are tidbits:JFYI
finding Gravestones without a dob>
when you don't have a dob and only dod & yr, mo, dy-here's a formula to figure out the dob
example: person died May 6 1889 age 71yr 7mo 9dy
1. write year, month day >18890506
2. subtract age at death >> 710709
3. gets this sum >>>>> 18179797
4. subtract 8870 >>>>>> 1817/09/27
= Sept 27 1817
here is another way to do it if the above gets you too frustrated/:-)
freebie calculator someone sent me. http://www.progenealogists.com/birthfromdeath.htm
If you wonder when census are done go here
Here is a link to a You Tube video about reading unreadable tombstones. Very interesting technique.
this one might be very helpful for photographers
LDS site has added millions of new records; checking it probably will find a DC for that individual with most all info one needs for any missing dob/dod's.

When giving your Member # to someone be sure to give them your whole link in your browser, otherwise they end up at a dec'd person's memorial; this separates being a member in F-A-G vs being a dec'd person with a memorial where you only need their member # to find them, can't find a F-A-G member though using this method, trust me I've done it, and end up at an unknown person.
"The Dash" is based on that little line on a tombstone, between the dates of birth and death. Ultimately, that dash is a symbol which represents every day they've spent alive on earth. Therefore, how you spend your "dash" is all that really matters. These memorials we do for folks hopefully give a glimpse into their lives of that DASH!
**FLASH NEWS UPDATE:ancestry.com has bought F-A-G
will remain Free but some changes are coming.**
thanks kindly, More later~~Happy Trails >>>>

Hello, Nena. I transferred this memorial and that of his spouse to you since it looks like they are in your family line. Girl, I like your bio especially about contributors "preaching" to others. Yeah, like they made the rules! If there are any more memorials you would like transferred, let me know.
|L. Forbes||Alva Koons|
Thanks Nena, oh what a history & prob a sad life. Would you please check the memorial to make sure I entered everything as you wanted & thank you so much.
Glad I could help.

Nena, you are very welcome. It is my pleasure. I am glad that you like the photos. It makes a difference when taken with a HD camera.

Mrs. Sallie's husband's headstone is above hers and several Smither family members were buried close by, but when my sons and I were searching for Sallie we could not find her.
My sons are 9 and 6 years old and we have been going to the cemetery as an afterschool project to fulfill all the photo requests for the past week and a half - they love the history of it. They are also good at hunting out the headstones for me and then I come along and photograph them.
Anyway, we couldn't find Sallie's headstone where she was supposedly located (according to a 1976 cemetery record book) - and then I spotted that half-buried piece of stone and realized it had something engraved on it. I dug it out by hand enough to read. The stone simply says "Mrs. S. J. Smither Died Oct. 3, 1898". Then we uncovered her footstone which has her initials "S.J.S." I hope it was okay with you - but we returned the next day (with small garden tools) and spent about an hour uncovering the rest of her buried stone oval memorial. It is quite lovely and I told the boys that I was sure Mrs. Sallie appreciated that she was not lost to history. We said a quick prayer for her before we left the cemetery that night.
How are you related to Mrs. Sallie?
All our best,
