I've been doing genealogy for a long time and enjoy it very much. |
I am thankful for this sight because I've found photos of graves of my family and my husband's family that I might not been able to see.
Thank you for everyone's hard work on this site.
Most of my information comes from obituaries I have collected throughout my research or find online.
I will transfer those who are not family, just ask. I like family to be with family when possible.
I started putting where I found obituaries, so people can search for the complete obituary and information.
Quote from Findagrave: "The goal is not to "own" every memorial of those to whom you are related. THE ULTIMATE GOAL SHOULD BE TO HAVE MEANINGFUL, ACCURATE MEMORIALS THAT HONOR THOSE WHO HAVE PASSED AWAY, REGARDLESS OF WHO CREATED THE MEMORIAL OR WHO MAINTAINS IT."
ABOUT READING ILLEGIBLE HEADSTONES- from MOCAVO Genealogy Newsletter
The two best friends you have for reading gravestones are water, and a reflective surface, such as a mirror. I routinely bring a couple of bottles of water in my bag when I visit a cemetery. often the simple act of putting some water on the stone makes some of the etched words easier to read. Iíve even brought out letters and numbers that were completely illegible.
A mirror or other highly reflective surface works well also. This tool is best used on a bright, sunny day. Use the mirror to reflect light across the face of the stone. The shadows it creates may illuminated the illegible inscription. Iíve also used photographerís reflectors to achieve the same effect. They are flexible and as they are not made of glass, there is no risk or dangerous breakage if you drop them. You can get them inexpensively through photo supply stores or Amazon
Sometimes I leave flowers for those I come across who have no flowers. This doesn't mean I am related - just means everyone should be remembered.
Thanks to all the volunteer photo takers for posting photos I have requested. I am very grateful for them taking their time in getting and posting. I sometimes don't thank them personally, but thank them for getting something I have asked for.
Don't view my emails everyday, to thank them faithfully. But I appreciate their dedication in getting them.

Thanks for adding all the section numbers on the memorials as we get the "missing" pictures entered. It always helps if we ever have to go back and do a retake or get more info. Plus, now that Calvary has installed new signs at the front and back of each section, we don't ever have to "guess" what section we are in.

Gina could you please change a couple things on this person.
His daughter informed me that he actually died in Dresden, Weakley, Tn
Her parents were married in Mar 15, 1956.
You have two Dave's and the second one should be Ted and Susie.

I am in no way related to this family, so no need to transfer her memorial. Thank you for being so thoughtful. D. L.
