Bio Photo Wishing everyone a safe prosperous & HAPPY NEW YEAR 2015 !!
Hi! Welcome to my little part of the world at Life in the Past Lane. [Online 10 years but offline for now]
Honoring the past generations, helping families to find their ancestors and finding out how many of us all have a connection and many more cuzins than we ever dreamed. Finding our ancestors and walking through the lands of times past.

I only work on genealogy on days ending in "Y"

For the cuzins I have met previously "Hi" and for the new cuzins I hope to meet "HI" to you to.
We have many many paths to walk that our ancestors walked, and our time here is in honor to them.

6-2013 NOTICE: PHOTOS of family members of my current lines - DO NOT TAKE without asking!!!! I have recently found my parents grandparents aunts uncles on other personal sites and have NO IDEA of when the cuzin took them or who they are. We are online to share information with family: BUT not without asking .. COPYRIGHT photos of precious parent /family photos etc are NOT TO BE TAKEN!!
Ask and see what happens ;-> !!!!

I leave "Daisys" on all family members that are in my data and lines [direct and extended].
I leave other flowers for memorials I have help link up and/or helped someone else with.
Other flowers also can mean I havent located or logged them in my data . We all have ALOT of branches and trees to climb and explore.

I do enter cemeteries when possible. It is to help others find their family members as well as it probably has an ancestor or two of mine.
I am not about numbers , I am about family and heritage and our ancestors. If I have a memorial that is part of your family line, I dont mind transfering [as long as it isnt part of my direct]. If I have made an error, just let me know and if I have dupped in error. Just let me know where and who. We have many generations , with so many simular names - errors are possible . But puzzles are so much fun finding validation of one piece at a time, till the picture among the pieces start to take form.

I do choose to post death certificates. DC's help with family medical history documenting. We all need to know what our family medical history was/is also.

Dates on papers, bibles, headstones, & certificates may vary. We are working through our families pasts and lives and getting the dates may sometimes be the best drawn conclusion that is to be drawn.

My immediate direct lines I am working with are:
Ward, Pennington, [Taylor-Gardner] Chapman, Lawless
Direct GG+ Grandparent lines:
Adkins, Anderson, Bawle, Beaumont, Belcher, Blevins , Brockett, Canoe, Carpenter, Cock, Coleman, +++[will update list again]

My Mother Mary Jane Gardner Taylor passed away Dec 26,2011. She did so enjoy learning of all my new finds and helping as she could, to fill in missing information and facts. She will be greatly missed by so many family members and friends.

My Uncle James Edward Gardner mothers' last brother passed away April 8 2012. Such a sad feeling of seeing the family lines end, but the next geneation now becomes the "Elders".

I saw behind me those who had gone, and before me those who are to come. I looked back and saw my father and his father and all our fathers, and in front to see my son and his son, and the sons upon sons beyond. And their eyes were my eyes. As I felt so they had felt, and were to feel, as then, so now, as tomorrow and forever. Then I was not afraid, for I was in a long line that had no beginning and no end. And the hand of his father grasped my father's hand and his hand was in mine, and my unborn son took my right hand and all, up and down the line that stretched from Time That Was to Time That Is and Is Not Yet, raised their hands to show the link. And we found that we were one....

From: "How Green Was My Valley", by Richard Llewellyn

A Prayer for Genealogists
Lord, help me dig into the past
And sift the sands of time,
That I might find the roots that made
This family tree of mine.

Lord, help me trace the ancient roads
On which my fathers trod,
And led them through so many lands
To find our present sod.

Lord, help me find an ancient book
Or dusty manuscript
That's safely hidden now away
In some forgotten crypt;

Lord, let it bridge the gap that haunts
my soul when I can't find
The missing link between some name
that ends the same as mine.
N. Curtis Woods

RE: Lila Rose
I don't know about the one in Estill County, but I did take the picture of the one in Whitley County. It sits in a cemetery up on a hill and it is a small cemetery. I know I didn't mix up as I have not photographed any cemeteries in Estill County.

Hey Girl
Goodman Family Cemetery
Concerning wrong cemetery .
Im not aware of a rule that if some information is incorrect it becomes a duplicate.
I search for your information not able to find it.
I don't mean to be difficult, I've never had a problem with other volunteers until I joined of the volunteers site on Facebook.
It was a bad experience for me.
I've transferred many of the graves I've added on request .
I was under the impression that was the correct thing to do.
I was taken by surprise that some volunteers don't and won't transfer one of those volunteers actually took over some members grave from family members.
I have sincerely consider leaving find a grave . I wished I had never joined their Facebook page because I've become disillusion with Find a Grave.
But that's my problem .
I do print out a copy of every record I add, I pulled the record of this site and my copy has Goodman Family cemetery , on the BIO section I added the date of their marriage and location of their burial.
Hope we can be friends.
