Bio and Links
I am an amateur genealogist and have found one of the best ways for me to collect hints on my family is to walk cemeteries. I currently live in California but many of the cemeteries I have walked are in Alabama. I take pictures of all the markers in cemeteries where I find ancestors. It is simply quicker than trying to write details down in the cemetery. If you have a Biography for one of the entries I would be happy to post it as well. I am not a typist and hopefully have not made tooooo many typos but if you see one please let me know so I can fix it
I am not related to many of the people I have added; entries are posted in the interest of genealogy and history, and the hope that someone will add my lost ancestors.

I will no longer do mass transfers of everyone with a specific surname in a cemetery. I will continue to add cemetery surveys as time allows.

Please use the "Suggest a change" link on the edit tab of a memorial to suggest changes or request transfers.

Thank you so much!
Eric,

Thank you so much for all of the work you have done uploading birth dates and pictures. Wow! I am impressed. I was just wondering if you could tell me about the birth dates that you have listed for some people, where no headstone picture is showing. Did you get these birth dates off of headstones. Thanks so much! Angie Doria

Correction needed.
I have tried to enter the correction necessary in the "correction" area, but have not recieved a response and it has not been corrected yet :). In the Bethany Baptist Church in Burnt Corn Alabama, there it an entry for a Ruby D Salter. The listing has it as Ruby Dean Salter. This is incorrect. It should be Ruby Dell Salter. I know this as she is my grandmother. If you need a death certificate or some documentation to make the correction, please let me know. Thank you!
