My sister and I have been doing genealogy for years and love doing it. We grew up in a family owned Funeral Home. What an experience! I guess that is why I love going to cemeteries! I think Find A Grave is a great site to honor those who have gone before and for those searching their roots.
Most of my memorials are family but as I take pictures there will be more I am not related to. I am happy to transfer to family through the edit button by giving your member number.
I also am happy to share any pictures I have placed on Find A Grave. I would like to be given credit for them if you place them on another site.
I do follow Find A Grave policy and only place facts on the memorial of those I do not know.If you would like to add to a memorial please send the info through the edit button.
Families my sister and I research: Curtis, Wyant, Bass, Long, Pirkle, Casey, Chanley, Main, McGlasson, Myers, Corn, Reed, McCandless, McCoy.
Mollie Cunningham Thank you for posting the picture of her Headstone. We don't live back East, so it's nice to see the memorials. You're doing a great service for families far away - always remember that. Lisa
Thank You Kind Angel Thank you so much for all that you have done to chronicle the lives of my family members by going to the Booker T. Washington Cemetery in East St. Louis. I don't have any family pictures and few documents, but the additions that you have added on find a grave mean more than you can imagine for building a trail for my family.
Ruby Meadows - 106905214 Thank you so much for posting this headstone. Our family knew the cemetery where she was buried, but never knew the location. Your picture lets us know that her headstone is still out there and viewable. I added her picture and linked her to my mother so they now rest together virtually. Thank you for the wonderful work you do.
RE: Photos in Lake View Cemetery Fairview Heights No rush. The section I was in this morning is called "Assurance", and it is in the far southeast corner of the cemetery on the road that leads out to Frank Scott Parkway. I'll just pick a different section to work in. I get my daily exercise walking through the cemetery and thought I could do some good taking pictures and posting them on Find-A-Grave while I was at it.
