I decided to get more involved in Find a Grave after a long, frustrating attempt to locate ancestral grandparents who had eluded every municipal database. If only someone had made a Find a Grave memorial for them it would have saved a great deal of time and effort. I hope the memorials I've made here on Find a Grave will facilitate the search for others seeking to learn more about their family history.

Also, as I've traveled the country visiting the graves of my ancestors I've witnessed first-hand the physical decline of many older tombstones, some to the point of illegibility. I've also experienced the destruction of an ancestral family cemetery. In this respect I think the efforts of those Find a Grave contributors have a valuable place in documenting those graves before they become lost forever.

With few exceptions, all of the memorials I've created were the result of a photo I took. I'm always a little uneasy when creating a memorial for the recently deceased. Please understand their creation was meant only to honor, respect, and document their final resting place. If you are family to any of the memorials I've created and wish to assume management, nothing pleases me more than transferring a memorial to a loved one.

I am also a photo volunteer. I try my best but I'm not Ansel Adams. When satisfying a photo request I sometimes take and post more than one photo especially if the grave is in a particularly nice setting. Having served 21 years myself, the graves of my fellow veterans hold special meaning and I'll often try to include the flag if one is present. But if I've posted more photos than you want to see on a memorial you're managing, send me an email and let me know. My wife tells me sometimes I try too hard.

Finally, if I've done something on Find a Grave that's helped you in some way, a short "thank you" note left below is always appreciated.

Happy New Year, my friend ...
... and a huge thanks for all you've contributed through memorials and the many photos you've taken (particularly at Pinecrest).
Best regards, Joe

Thank you for this memorial and photo. I had searched to find all her brothers & sisters and Kay was the last one to link to her parents.
I read your Bio and so agree with you that it is very important to document all those that have passed and a photo whenever possible since time and progress they could be no more.
I too work as much as I can to document the graves in my area for all those who will not be able to come here to see them. Just like to repay all you other volunteers that do the same.

RE: David Kribs - Burford Congregational
I meant to tell you that according to the Ontario Cemetery Finding Aid, there are no other Kribs in Brant County. I took time to read your profile notes and found them meaningful and well expressed.

Hello! I was wondering if you would allow me to attach (with appropriate credit given) your headstone photo from this memorial to my tree on Ancestry?

Thanks for considering my request. :)
