Bio and Links
Bio Photo Our findagrave activity stemmed from my love of genealogy, photography and old gravestones, strengthened when we saw the damage one year of weather does to an older stone that cannot stand the test of time well. We believe everyone deserves to be remembered, beyond plain, cold statistics, and document as much as we are able, especially as we travel. This is a wondrous site where the upcoming generations can easily find their history and ancestors. Even after we are gone, our work will remain. Thank you, Findagrave.

We are all simply the guardians of those we have kindly added until their family comes along. I am eager to transfer anyone who is not family to family. People with kind, sincere words make my day.

I take my heritage, 'graving' and documentation very seriously and most respectfully. Accuracy is of the most utmost importance to me, not who 'owns' a memorial. If I have made an error, please, please, let me know, politely. Cooperation is the entire point of this site. I now understand why people leave Findagrave. If you are rude, I will ignore you or any request.

I spend over half my time on Findagrave JUST sending edits to admin for duplicates, not documenting cemeteries any more. PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE double check before you add a historical person from the 1600's or back. Nine times out of ten, they have already been added. PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE read the FAQ concerning BURIALS UNKNOWN. They are to be used for RECENT deaths only, not your 176th great grandfather whose burial is 'not located yet.'

Do not use my photos without permission, and ask BEFORE you use them. Simple, reasonable.

USE THE MEMORIAL EDIT/SUGGESTION OPTION ON THE MEMORIAL you want updated for updates requests, transfer requests, general inquiries ANY memorial. I will IGNORE AND DELETE suggestions, requests and updates and inquiries left HERE or in EMAIL, as they are REPEATEDLY, DESPITE THIS stupidly bold NOTICE.

RE: Unknown Burials
Thank you, Anne, for taking the time to tell me about the unknown burials. Guess the ones I put in are gone now. Do we just not put them in, then?

RE: Ęthelflęd
Thank you for letting me know about the photos. I was unaware of this policy. I've been using Find A Grave as history lessons for my granddaughters. I'll make my own memorials on a website for them. I'm going to England on an internship for a year and will take my own photos. May I then share them with you?

RE: Prairie Flowers
You never know where they'll turn up. I have hundreds of family pictures starting in the 1840s and over the years have identified all but that last 130 of them and managed to fit all but a few into the family lines. So I guess there's always hope. I'll look forward to seeing yours when you get them posted. Send my the link.

Shapley Memorials
Ann I would like to alert you to a misspelling on a last name.On the memorials of George Daniel Shapley #114564887 and Myrtle C. DeForest Shapley #11456333. I took these pictures for you and if you check you have the last name as Shapely and the stone reads Shapley. I would hate to think that family could not find them if they are looking. Please let me Know if I am right. Thank You
