Ancestors & relatives never really go away, they get buried, cremated or vaulted in a sacred place for us to visit and remember. After all, where would we be without our ancestors? As much as it hurts to lose a loved one, we must be thankful for the time we had together. These memorials in FIND A GRAVE are growing by a million a month and make it easier for the world to find & see the memorials of their loved ones. Through these memorials, they live on.
Passionate is an understatement, Genealogy & Cemeteries are a big part of my life. Have 35 years of sometimes obsessive research under my belt. I'm one of the very few volunteers for Madison County, NY which is 662 square miles with 285 Cemeteries and endless hills (up to 1800 ft) & valleys, so go easy on me folks.
Genealogically I picked up where my Grandfather and his father left off. I specialize in Madison County, NY and surrounding areas and Warren County, NY. If you find your relative in my memorials and would like transfers or to add bios, or corrections let me know. All my photos are free for distribution.

Though it feels like "good-bye", we know that in reality, for those of us who have a personal relationship with the Lord Jesus Christ it is merely, "see-you-later"

Taphophilia is a interest for and enjoyment of cemeteries. Taphophilia involves epitaphs, gravestone rubbing, photography, art, and history of deaths. The singular term is a taphophile.

Evelyn P. Paulson
Hi Andrew!

I just wanted to get your permission to delete the memorial for Evelyn P. Paulson #141891095. Aunt Eve is still with us and busy as ever, still living in her own home and still driving to NJ every so often to see her children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren.

Thank you so very much for fulfilling, yet another, photo request! Sincerely appreciate all you do and have done to help those of us from afar. Appreciate your time and effort as well as fine photography!

Albert and Sarah Stover Tucker
I happened to notice that the children of Albert and Sarah only show up on Albert's Memorial. Is there some way to have them show up on Sarah's memorial as well?

Thanks for your help!

Cousin Jim
Athol Gallups and etc
You had said; "Years ago (early 80's) I corresponded with Zella Selfridge, she sent me Gallup genealogy. My family keeps in touch with Marj & Ernie Gallup family, cousins"

Zella was my mother, who d. Sept 8, 2005, bur. on my lot at Gansevoort Cem. look it up on this web- site.
Someone was nice enough to do a 'drive by shooting' of my own dam cemetery lot before I could put some GOOD pix on it, and the guy WILL NOT answer queries. Makes me a mite furious, but (shrug)...
Ernie died back in 2007 and I don't know about Marge, as I haven't seen them at a family reunion since the early '90's and the Glens Falls paper has a real funky search engine.
I have the history of Thurman, NY and a book of it's cemetery contents if you have any questions..
SO.. that makes you and me cousins, too.
RSVP, Cuz!!

Hi Andrew, Aunt Myra was a dear sister of my Dad, Jim. Met Mabel several years ago...went to see her at her home, enjoyed meeting her. She was a dear friend of Aunt Myra's. Have been searching for years to sort out these Fullers, Alison

Eaton Farm Cemetery
Hi Andrew,
You thankfully created a memorial for a Judson Jerritt Mace at Eaton Farm Cemetery in 2009. From the information you recorded, I think there must be a stone there. Would it be possible for you to take a picture of the stone or do you know of anyone that can take the picture and either post it at findagrave or send it to me (and I'll post it). I did request a photo at findagrave, but the other 2 requests were from 2010 and haven't been fulfilled. Anything you can do to help would be greatly appreciated. My member number: #47226446 under Rebecca Ott
Thank you!!!!!!
