I've been using findagrave in order to find out more information on my family tree, as well as leave a trail of information for others doing genealogy research.
If I've added a profile of someone you know, please know that I did so with all due respect. I might even be related in some way. Feel free to contact me with additional information or corrections or if I included your name in an obituary and you want it removed for privacy.
Some surnames important to my own genealogy include: Fischer, Mott, Roth, Dunworth, Franz, Turner, Wilson, Griffin, Mayes/Mays, Green, Ensor, Gill, Rogers, May, Stanford, Bunce, Ellis, and Pfister.
Surnames important to my lovely wife's genealogy include: Tatum, Summerville, Bigelow, Gaylord, Trask, Loring, and Kingsbury.
As a history buff, I'm also using findagrave to find the graves of various historical figures.
Mayes family I volunteer at the Hx Soc Balto Co and today found a document entitled "A Faithful People. Documentation of findings of an historical research conducted on Methodism at Mays Chapel prior to 1992." It contains information of the various May(e)s families. If you haven't seen it and would like a copy, let me know and I will mail you a hard copy.
