I have noticed a couple of bad problems with Findagrave... there are far too many duplicate memorials; and, duplicate or incorrectly named cemeteries, although we all make mistakes, and I have been guilty of duplicating a few myself! Most cemetery naming mistakes are made by individuals that don't live in the State and or County in which the burial takes place.

Please check thoroughly to see if there is already a memorial created for someone, before creating a new one, and don't create a cemetery unless your are familiar with the cemeteries in the area of burial! It only takes a short time!

Thank you!


I have been a genealogist and historian since about 1980. I also belong to various Historical Societies.

I have taken between 15,0000 and 20,000 photos of tombstones, primarily in Floyd County, Kentucky. I took the photos between 1999 and 2003, before I knew Findagrave existed. I am now posting memorials using the photos or adding them to memorials already being managed by others.

Last names searching:

Spencer (Ky, VA & MO), Turner (KY, VA)

Hall, Osborne, Howell & Martin (eastern, KY

Please email me with any correspondence.

Any photos that have been posted by me that are not credited to someone else, may be used for personal purposes only, as long as you give me the credit. Please contact me if you'd like because we may be related!

Please use the edit tab to contact me concerning any edits you need me to perform on memorials that I manage or for transfers. I typically transfer memorials if I'm not related. If you don't intend to make edits to memorials you ask transfer of then don't ask... I believe one should add photos and other documents if available.

Fitzgerald and Langley Cemeteries
Hi. I see there is a Fitzgerald Cemetery and a Langley Cemetery showing in Floyd County with duplicate listings. I am not familiar with the area but thought maybe you could get them fixed or something. I just happened across it and thought you might want to know. Thanks.

My name is David Osborne currently living in Savannah Ga. My grandfather was Grover Cleveland Osborne through Stephen Alex Fisher Osborne on through Solomon Osborne that came from Grayson County Virginia

I have been working on Osborne ancestors for about twenty years with some success and a lot of failures. I came upon your website and I find it very interesting.

Thank you for the hard work that you have put into the site and your willingness to share your information

Pvt Albert Ward - 69316471
I submitted a correction through the Edit tab to link Albert to his family several weeks ago. I am wondering if you got it or if you are too busy to link him, and if so, could you please transfer his memorial to me so I can do it. His father James William Ward 132866923 and his mother Sarah Wilson Ward 132873205. Thank you,

christine
