Bio and Links
Bio Photo Hi,

Since 2009 I have been working on preserving the Greenwood Cemetery. I started out taking care of a few family members there and then found more and more. I am related somehow to almost 1/2 of the cemetery.

I have been going through the cemetery stone by stone trying to physically place all the graves. I'm also trying to add names to the stones that are unreadable, which is very very hard! Sometimes I find a stone which just says mother or father even

I have been going through obituaries, church records, cemetery books, county birth records, funeral home records, and death records just trying to make sure every one is found and taken care of.

If you are within the FAG guidelines I will GLADLY transfer too.

I'm just about done with the cemetery now. :D

FAG Rules Regarding Submitting Information / Creating Memorials

Can I add an obituary to my interment listing?

Please do NOT add photographs from obituary notices (unless you, personally took the photo), as they are protected by copyright law. Find A Grave reserves the right to remove obituary notices and photographs from memorial records. Similarly, you may NOT scan an obituary and add it as a photograph to a memorial record.

FAG Rules regarding duplicates:

** If you find a memorial has been added but has incomplete or incorrect information, instead of creating a duplicate memorial you should use the tools provided to submit corrections, additions or a transfer request via the "Suggest A Correction" link under the 'Edit' tab on the upper right of the memorial. YOU SHOULD NEVER DELIBERATELY CREATE A DUPLICATE MEMORIAL.

FAG guidelines regarding photos:

** Not obtaining permission before using others photos is a violation of copyright law and is against Find A Grave policy.

I found a photo of a relative on Find A Grave, can I use it?

Photos posted to memorials on Find A Grave are copyrighted by the member who submitted the photos. Lifting the photo to use elsewhere would be a violation of copyright. You must obtain written permission from the member to use any photo for your own use. In general if you did not take the photo yourself, you do not hold the copyright to the photo.


"I don't want to submit my information and then see it for sale here or on another site. Will Find A Grave always remain a free site?

Find A Grave has been around for over ten years. Our stated goal has always been to remain a free site for everyone. We have no plans on changing that. Additionally, we claim no copyright or 'ownership' of any photos that are posted to Find A Grave. THEY REMAIN YOUR PROPERTY. If we were to turn evil and start charging people to view YOUR photos against your wishes, you would have every LEGAL RIGHT to demand that we remove them. But we're not planning on turning evil, so it shouldn't be an issue."

Do NOT steal photos from findagrave to use in your family trees on or for that matter either.

Do not copy, or post to any website, any of the pictures that I've added to Find-a-Grave Memorials.

Thank you.

Thank you very much for the newspaper article of Jacobina's obit. Are you by any chance related to the Alleman family? Jacobina was my gg-gmother.

RE: Thanks again!
You are very welcome. I love helping when I can and also love it when family can manage the memorials. I feel like the more information that can be added and connected to each memorial, the more it honors that person and preserves the ancestry for generations to come.

So glad I could help you. Have a wonderful Christmas!

RE: Waldums
I believe you are correct with IO Waldrum. I removed that memorial.

I added the plot information on your memorial.

Have a Merry Christmas. Let me know if you need anything else.

RE: Waldums
I.O. Waldrum was buried January 27, 1894. And it is in a different plot than the Waldums. I have added this person to the cemetary. If you find out that they should be a Waldum, let me know. I can transfer them as well.

Incidently, I.O.'s plot would be right by Ludwig, Ida Marie, and Olga. They are in 535 and I.O is in 534.


Got your message on Edward. I am not sure who the Mrs. E Waldum would be then. Hopefully you can figure out who she is. I love it when memorials make it back to family and the pieces are put back together.

Let me know if you need anything, I am always happy to help.

RE: Waldums
I have sent you some corrections and some information from the directory.

Also, there is a I.O Waldrum listed in the directory. I don't know if it is a typo. But in case it fits information you have, I wanted you to know.

RE: Waldums
I do still have the Floyd directory. I will start adding the Plot information for those that I don't manage.

Also, would you like to manage the Waldum's that I have in Floyd? I would be happy to transfer them.

Hope to hear from you soon.

Merry Christmas!

Sorry for the double, I hit the wrong key
It's a website you can add last names, first names & county and check on the deaths and records in cemeteries.
