Me and My Grandma (Beverly Grzywa) are very intrested in our family history. The names we are researching are... |
If you need info. on any of these names I will be glad to share that with you.
I will gladly transfer management of one of my memorials to you only if you are a direct descendant of that person, and that person is not a direct descendant of me.
Feel free to use any of the info, and pics. I upload to find a grave for your own geneaology reasons.
I Do NOT MIND!
* If you need any additional info. for any of the names I am researching please visit my family tree. (The link to it is listed below under "Website")
Have a great Day.

Your tombstone stands among the rest;
In this field of green.
The name and date are chiseled out
For all the world to see.
It reaches out to all who care
It is too late to mourn.
You did not know that I'd exist,
You died long before I was born.
Yet we are of one, you and I,
In flesh, in blood, in bone.
Our blood contracts and beats a pulse
Entirely not our own.
Dear Ancestor, the life you lived
One hundred years ago
Spreads out among the ones you left
Who would have loved you so.
I wonder if you lived and loved,
I wonder if you knew
That someday I would find this spot,
And come to visit you.
**WHY I DO GENEALOGY**
We are the chosen. My feelings are, in each family, there is one who seems called to find the ancestors.
To put flesh on their bones and make them live again, to tell the family story and to feel that somehow they know and approve.
To me, doing genealogy is not a cold gathering of facts but, instead, breathing life into all who have gone before.
We are the Story Tellers of the tribe. All tribes have one. We have been called as if it were in our genes.
Those who have gone before cry out to us. " Tell our story. " So, we do. In finding them, we somehow find ourselves. How many graves have I stood before now and cried? I have lost count. How many times have I told the ancestors you have a wonderful family you would be proud of us? How many times have I walked up to a grave and felt somehow there was love there for me? I cannot say.
It goes beyond just documenting facts. It goes to who am I and why do I do the things I do. It goes to seeing a cemetery about to be lost forever to weeds and indifference and saying I can't let this happen. The bones here are bones of my bone and flesh of my flesh. It goes to doing something about it. It goes to pride in what our ancestors were able to accomplish. How they contributed to what we are today.
It goes to respecting their hardships, their losses and building a life for their family. It goes to deep pride that they fought to make and keep us a Nation.
It goes to a deep and immense never giving in or giving up, their resoluteness to go on understanding that they were doing it for us.
That we might be born who we are. That we might remember them. So we do.
With love and caring and scribing each fact of their existence, because we are them and they are us. So, as a scribe called, I tell the story of my family.
It is up to that one called in the next generation to answer the call and take their place in the long line of family storytellers.
That is why I do my family genealogy and that is what calls those young and old to step up and put flesh on the bones.

Changes made. Would you like to adopt her? Maybe you are a relative or family friend?

The answer to your question is simple sort of....
If you want to make a hypber link (as you saw on mine). Take the NAME you have listed in the bio (we will use the word NAME here as an example).
Go to NAME's memorial and highlight the web address at the top of the page. (Not the link number, but the whole address).
Then go back to the Bio section and search for NAME in their parent's bio.
Next type in the following directly in front of NAME. (for an example, I will use your URL address on Findagrave it would be http://www.findagrave.com/cgi-bin/fg.cgi?page=mr&MRid=47418370
NAME (type this after the person's NAME). This closes out the code, so the whole page isn't highlighted.

No, the book isn't on line but you can buy a copy from the Dearborn Genealogical Society. You can e-mail Pat Gee at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
|Patricia Ibbotson||RE: Hailey Donaldson|
Pat Gee and I read parts of the cemetery in 2008 and published a book that is available in places like the Library of Michigan of our readings. We read Sections A & B (Children and Babies), part of Section F, Section I-1, Sections J and K. I took photos of some of the markers and monuments in Section F. Many are old and deteriorating. Section K is the oldest section. I've been adding them to Find A Grave as time permits. This is a large cemetery. Perhaps you should concentrate on areas we didn't read. Thanks for your interest.
Not trying to nag, just FYI that we've cleared over 200 requests this spring and now have 626 requests—fewer than there were in June, 2012. We'd be happy to clear your request(s) but some/all do not have plot information. Please call (216) 641-7575 and obtain plot information. We most likely already have a plot map but will let you know once we have plot info if we also need a map. Thanks!

Thank you for the your time and effort to get the photos of the Huckabees markers. It is very much appreciated.

Thanks for sending his obit. I had it, just could not face posting it yet.
I appreciate your thoughtfulness. He was close to me I will feel his absence greatly.
|Richard Boyer||RE: Hittie/ Wyand Photos|
You are welcome to use my photos.
I took care of the duplicate, I always check but I must have missed that one. Thanks for letting me know. Have a good day.
