My love of genealogy began with my parents who did a great amount of research on each of their families. This was before they died in the 1970's. I didn't want their research to be lost or forgotten. So I began to do further research adding information to their records, and most of all to share all of the research with extended family. I love the challenge of finding records of proof for each date given.
You have my permission to use the gravestone pictures I have submitted to Find A Grave for your genealogy records, along with a notation giving me credit for them.
Please do not print out a biography I have written on any Memorial page and add that biography to ancestry or any place else. Content submitted on Find A Grave is copyrighted. As I continue to find information I sometimes change or correct a biography and its contents to reflect what I have found. I am a member of Ancestry and enter information from my family tree there to record burials here on Find A Grave.
As I work on my family's genealogy I have added names of family and where they are buried so I can share that information with extended family members, and the burial locations will not be lost.
Find A Grave is a wonderful place to help us with our genealogies. The dedicated members who take time to record hundreds of burials that are in a cemetery, take photographs of their graves and post that information so we can find them, is a wonderful help to all of us. They are truly dedicated members. As are the ones who volunteer to answer people's requests for photographs. For generations to come this information will be preserved. (C. (Hill) Krueger
Claude Conrad My name is Bill Downer and if you are related to Claude Conrad or his Mother Henrietta Harding Conrad, then we are distant relatives. Henrietta Harding mother was Ancy Hale. Some report her name as Hall but, that is not correct. Her last name was Hale. Do you have any information on the Hale line? If not, I can take you back three generation from Ancy. That would be Claude Conrad's third great grand parents.
