|Bio and Links|
Every life matters. As an author and researcher, I've been the beneficiary of the knowledge and assistance of thousands of historians and genealogists. I try never to miss an opportunity to pay these favors forward.|
You are welcome to share my photos among family members. Photo credit is appreciated but not required.
Accuracy is important to me. If you spot errors, please let me know *respectfully.* If you send me additional information to add to memorials, INCLUDE YOUR SOURCE/DOCUMENTATION. If you submit edits without documentation, expect that I will take time to check your info, and that may slow processing considerably. I welcome edits but am only able to process them as my work and family obligations allow. Please do not send frivolous, tomato-tomahto edits; I will decline them. Examples: Section 1 vs Sec 01, Baby vs Infant, middle name with or without period. Thanks for understanding.
A word about bios: the word "biography" means the story of a life, not just the story of the moment of someone's death. I wouldn't want myself or my loved ones defined by that, so I believe it's a matter of respect that if memorials include information about a person's cause of death, they also include information about the much bigger story of their life. As such, I choose not to include information about deaths only, particularly when they are salacious, such as accidents, suicides, fires, executions, murders, etc. I have made occasional exceptions but for the most part, I follow Find a Grave guidelines: “The bio should not look like a case file. Graphic bios are not acceptable.”
I also decline to post information from copyrighted sources (most books and some obituary sources) but can usually post directions to your source.
I'm happy to refer you to other Oregon resources as well.

I appreciate all your work on Find A Grave

This matches exactly the death date of a relative who lived in Oregon but without more information it is hard to be certain. Do you have, or know the source, or anything else? Thanks for any help you can give.

Wow, quick transfers. Thank you so very much for transferring Mayne & Robert Lyle. It means a lot to me. Wish you the very best. Donna Lyle Alumbaugh
