Bio Photo Hello.

My name is Lisa, and I have been transcribing and photographing cemeteries for about 14 years now. Thanks to a Random Acts of Genealogical Kindness volunteer, I found this site. Finally! A place to put my work.

I record cemeteries to help preserve a record of our long, lost loved ones. At a cemetery, years ago, I noticed that several of the 'older' stones would soon be unreadable. I thought that it would be sad if at some point, that person couldn't be found when a genealogist came looking for them.

I don't think that they should be forgotten. I enjoy knowing that I can help someone locate that special 'someone' that they have been looking for. Or, to help them see their loved one's final resting place.

I am only human, and I make my fair share of mistakes. So, if you find an error, please email me, and I will do my best to correct it.

If you have information that you think needs to be added to a memorial, or if it needs to be updated, I will do my best to help out. I will not be bothered in the slightest if you want to add photos to the memorial.

Happy Hunting!

From Find A Grave FAQ:
Transfer requests should be for direct relatives within four generations, this would be your great-grandparents, grandparents, parents, or siblings. Bulk surname requests should not be made.

For Transfer requests & correction please use the "suggest correction" feature to submit.
Please do not use my message page for request.
Be sure to include your member ID # and the memorial ID #, as well as how you are related to the individual).


{{{I RECORD ALL THE STONES IN A CEMETERY. THERE ARE STONE MARKERS THAT HAVE LIVING PEOPLE ON THEM. SUCH AS: ONLY ONE SPOUSE HAS PASSED AWAY OR SOMEONE PURCHASED THE STONE IN ADVANCE, ALONG WITH THEIR PLOT.

IF THERE IS NOT A DEATH DATE, THERE ARE MANY EXPLANATIONS:

* THEY ARE NOT DECEASED
* THE DEATH DATE WAS NOT PUT ON THE STONE AFTER THEY PASSED
* THEY REMARRIED AND WERE NOT BURIED WITH THIS PARTICULAR SPOUSE
* THEY MOVED AND WERE BURIED ELSEWHERE
* THEY PASSED AWAY WITH NO LIVING RELATIVES OR FRIENDS TO PASS ON THEIR BURIAL WISHES

AND MANY MORE.}}}

RE: William Howard
No Lisa I have not deleted mine. If you want to delete yours at the Mt Zion Cemetery at Olden that would be fine. Hope you had a Merry Christmas and will enjoy many blessings in the New Year. Kathy

Sarah Moris Thomas FAG #22039932
Would it be convenient for you to take another photo of the grave marker for Sarah "Sally" Morris Thomas Find A Grave Memorial# 22039932? The date of death listed on Find A Grave says 1884, but her youngest son was born in 1886 according to his death certificate. I would just like to verify the year on her grave marker. I can see "1 8 8".

May I use the gravemarker photo that you contributed to the memorial page of Wilkins Battis, to post on the Vermont Civil War site? ( www.vermontcivilwar.org)
You will receive credit for this.
Thank you for your consideration.

William Howard
Lisa, last summer I photographed Mt. Zion cemetery at South Fork and added a memorial for William Howard. I was looking for his son, also named William, and discovered that you had created a memorial for William, the father, at Mt. Zion in Olden in 2008. If you would like to change the cemetery for your memorial I will delete the one I created and add my picture to yours. You may add any of the information I have on the one I created to yours and I will link his children and wife to yours also.

RE: Carl Wake photo request
Hi, We checked Carl's gravesite about two weeks ago and saw there had been a cement slab poured for the headstone to sit on. We will check the cemetery again today to see if the stone has been set. We go to the cemetery several times so it is no problem to check. It is a beautiful cemetery, especially this time of year. Thanks, Sheila
