Bio and Links
Bio Photo Our findagrave activity stemmed from my love of genealogy, photography and old gravestones, strengthened when we saw the damage one year of weather does to an older stone that cannot stand the test of time well. We believe everyone deserves to be remembered, beyond plain, cold statistics, and document as much as we are able, especially as we travel. This is a wondrous site where the upcoming generations can easily find their history and ancestors. Even after we are gone, our work will remain. Thank you, Findagrave.

We are all simply the guardians of those we have kindly added until their family comes along. I am eager to transfer anyone who is not family to family. People with kind, sincere words make my day.

I take my heritage, 'graving' and documentation very seriously and most respectfully. Accuracy is of the most utmost importance to me, not who 'owns' a memorial. If I have made an error, please, please, let me know, politely. Cooperation is the entire point of this site. I now understand why people leave Findagrave. If you are rude, I will ignore you or any request.

I spend over half my time on Findagrave JUST sending edits to admin for duplicates, not documenting cemeteries any more. PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE double check before you add a historical person from the 1600's or back. Nine times out of ten, they have already been added. PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE read the FAQ concerning BURIALS UNKNOWN. They are to be used for RECENT deaths only, not your 176th great grandfather whose burial is 'not located yet.'

Do not use my photos without permission, and ask BEFORE you use them. Simple, reasonable.

USE THE MEMORIAL EDIT/SUGGESTION OPTION ON THE MEMORIAL you want updated for updates requests, transfer requests, general inquiries ANY memorial. I will IGNORE AND DELETE suggestions, requests and updates and inquiries left HERE or in EMAIL, as they are REPEATEDLY, DESPITE THIS stupidly bold NOTICE.

Sure that would be great, thanks !! I always seem to have good luck finding the people that are in the pics.. sending them to someone who wants them takes much longer. I did ship 3 of them in yesterday's mail though... LOL

No. I found an old portrait pic of his sister Myrtle and younger brothers, Willie and Chauncey in an antique store so I posted the pic thinking someday maybe someone in the family will want it, and I can send it to them. I was just working the familial lines to get them all linked.

Distantly. Emma's grandma Fanny (21505547) was sister to my ggg-grandfather Faris Farley (11626782).

RE: photo request

Thank you so much for responding to my query, and so quickly too! Please thank your friend for me also and I will keep my fingers crossed that they will have good news for me :) Emails are not going out? Do you mean the photo request emails to the volunteers? If so, this isn't good news at all. Wonder what's going on?

photo request

In Nov 2012 you did a photo request for Ichabod Bartlett ## 100171520. It has not been fulfilled as of yet. I find that if you remove the request after this length of time and do a resubmit, it often will be fulfilled by a new volunteer. Ichabod is my husband's direct line ancestor, so would you mind doing this for me? Thanks.
