My husband says I spend too much time in graveyards, doing genealogy and on the computer. Maybe he's right.|
My favorite cemeteries are Mount Hebron in Winchester, Virginia, and Rock Creek in Washington, D. C.
- When I started contributing to Find A Grave the following was listed under FAQs:
What are your naming conventions?
Unless the legal name contains a hyphen, punctuation, including the () and /, should not be included in the memorial name. Full capitalization (ALL-CAPS) of names should not be used, whether it be surname or the full name.
- I see that they have changed their FAQs to the following:
What are your naming conventions?
Unless the legal name contains a hyphen, punctuation, including the () and /, should not be included in the memorial name. Periods are to be used after initials, as in normal English. Full capitalization (ALL-CAPS) of names should not be used, whether it be surname or the full name. Suffixes and Prefixes do not belong in any name field.
- I am adhering to what was the convention on Find A Grave when I first checked FAQs. Rather than change over 18,000 memorials, I will stick with the original rule.

Audrey - thanks again so much!
|Patty Shreve||The Shreve's at Oakwood Cemetery|
Audrey - I can't thank you enough for the Shreve transfers! They will be well taken care of - and thank you for all your work in Find A Grave as well. Patty Shreve
Thank you very much for the family member transfer!
|Patty Shreve||The Shreve & Copley Families|
Audrey - thank you so much for your consideration in transferring the memorial pages from Oakwood. My husband's family is so much more interesting to research - lot's of documentation; whereas my family were mostly farmers and not much of a paper trail. Thanks again!
|Gloria Magliocco||Sherry Swank Bernacki|
Thank you so much for the memorial for Sherry Swank Bernacki, my cousin's wife. I sincerely appreciate all the work you have done with the presentation of the memorial and the pictures as well. Best wishes to you as you continue your valuable work.
|Pam Ferguson||Brown Neeter Haley|
Hi, I believe that Brown Neeter Haley's birth date is 1890, from what I can see on the photo that I have recently posted from Fairview Cem., Culpeper, VA. He could have lived to be over 100 years old, but you may want to recheck the date.
|Brian S||RE: Aurelia Watkins|
I agree with your assessment on Aurelia. I had a horrible time reading this particular grave and finally found a match when I was down to the last 7 or 8 graves in Trinity without pictures. I also agree that this grave is in Trinity...I have been trying to get about 50 graves moved from Christ Church over to Trinity. It really isn't anyone's fault, it is a large complex and the dividing lines are really only apparent if you know where to look!
Thanks for your help!

Thank you for posting a photo of my grandparents gravesite. My dad was their son. Both my parents passed away earlier this year and I am planning a trip back to Virginia to spread some of their ashes... I am so grateful to know where my grandparents are buried so I can visit when I return to Virginia.

Her first husband was Thomas Grant Walkinshaw (1924-2004) with who she had 2 children.
