Bio Photo *****Please do not add information to your flowers. Just send me an edit and I will add it.

I have a lot of memorials and there are some who believe I am just into "the numbers". First of all, that is not my intentions here on Find A Grave. My intentions are to find as many people as I can who do not have a memorial here, so that people can find their family. I love getting out and photographing the stones. Which is why I have so many of them! For those who think I am into the numbers, should I just wait until someone has a memorial made before adding my photo to it? I know that I love those people who get out and do what I'm doing. I hope to be able to find out where some of my ancestors are some day if someone finds them. I like to be able to indirectly pay my thanks to those who did find some of my ancestors and post them here on Find A Grave, by adding memorials for other people to find. It was wonderful finding out where some of my ancestors were. Plus, I am just as happy to be able to add photos to memorials already made that have no photos, or older smaller photos. I am sick and tired of people thinking that if you have a lot of memorials, you are only into the numbers. So what?? Big deal. I would rather have everyone on find a grave "into the numbers", than everyone who only does small batches to make "quality" memorials. I have ancestors to find and the more people get out there and snap those photos, the better. Right? Also, I am just as happy with people who simply add a cemetery spreadsheet of memorials and no photos. When people are trying to find their ancestors, anything helps. That would at least show you where they are.

*I want to apologize for some of my Memorial Park photos being "grassy". I didn't have anything with me at the time to sweep it off, and didn't want to do it with my hands.

I do have photos for all my memorials made in 2013 and 2014 for Memorial Park Cemetery. I am now done photographing the entire cemetery, with the exception of gravestones that do not have a death date or if their birth date was after 1914 and no death date(Unless I found them in the SS Index). I am working on adding the couple thousand photos I have for Memorial Park. But, in the mean time, PLEASE feel free to ask me to post a photo for someone I have made a memorial for. You do NOT need to put in a request. Just send me a sac and I will find it and get it on here for you.

Now, about these "edits". I will continue accepting most of them, but it's hard for me to research every edit I receive, so it's possible that people could send me wrong information. If that happens, please accept my apologies.

When asking for transfers, please include your relationship. If no relationship is included, it won't happen. Send information by the edit tab at the top right of the memorial only.

You can use my photos, but please give me credit if you use them on other websites.

I have been doing genealogy research on my family and others for about 14 years. I have learned so much in the process! Like, don't take every leaf on Ancestry as fact! Don't take information from other trees there as fact. Don't take everything, even in official documents as fact. lol The fact is, unless we knew and lived with that person, nothing is 100% fact. You have to look at more than one thing sometimes to see it better. I will use censuses, death certificates, etc to "prove" my research, but those are usually full of errors too. But anything is only as proven as how reliable the information you have found, is. Does that make sense? :-)

Gravestones I am specifically looking for are for : Samuel King b- 1827 in NY and d- 1880-1885 in eiher Washington Co. KS or NE; Lydia Shaffer King b- 1831 in PA and d- 1895-1900 KS or NE; Samuel B. Hanlin b- 1818 in Penn and d- 1882 in Tama County, Iowa.

I accidentally put in a wrong edit link for his parents. I listed his sister Nona as his mother. It should be Sarah 116826517.

RE: Re: Schumacher
Ok - they are all linked up now. Would you mind deleting the smaller image that you replaced? I am POSITIVE that the memorial owner used to have the power to delete a phone - and it appears that's no longer the case. No rush.

Thanks again for all your help.
