Hello, Teresa and I have been friends for years but only in the last couple of years did we discover our "unnatural" obsession with cemeteries. Our families think we are nuts and maybe we are but we LOVE being able to help people connect with their loved ones who have passed on. We think that Find A Grave is one of, if not THE best site for family researchers. Each memorial, if you are lucky, has the deceased name, birth and death dates, place of bith and death, place of burial, parents, children, siblings, and can help complete someones family tree. It helps loved ones who live thousands of miles away to be able to see the headstone and/or final resting place of their ancestors. We have made it our goal to find, document and photograph each and every cemetery in Choctaw Co. MS. (where we live), the ones that are known and especially the ones that are abandoned and forgotten. It doesn't matter how far back in the woods we have to hike, nor the millions of virgin thorns we seem to attract, all the mud, water, chiggers, snakes, rain, snow, sleet or hail.......ok maybe not so much the last five things. We are dedicated to our "passion" and plan to venture out to other counties that need our attention. God Bless all of our fellow "Find A Gravers" for all that you are doing for Find A Grave.|
Note: In light of some "negative" messages we have received lately I would like to make something clear.............Teresa and I are NOT in this for the number or memorials added, or the number of memorials managed, or the number of photo requests fulfilled or the number of photos we take. We are also NOT in this for the credit or the recognition. We are in this simply and more importantly to help people who are doing their family history, to find their ancestors to help complete their family tree for themselves and their future family. We are also in this to make sure that people who have passed on have something to show they were here, their life was important and they are remembered..........When we post a memorial or a photo we go to the cemetery they are listed in and make POSITIVELY SURE they are where they are listed. So many times we have photographed someone's headstone only to find out they are listed in the wrong cemetery. If someone lives out of town, state, or even the country and go to the cemetery that their loved one's are listed in, only to be disappointed because they can't find their stone anywhere. We have also noticed that sometimes even the obituary is wrong, so we never list someone until we have gone to the cemetery and checked it out for ourselves. We take a lot of pride in what we are doing and it is important to us that we do it right. When we get an e-mail or message of thanks it makes all our hard, but very rewarding work, worth it........

Pam & Teresa, thank you once again for taking photos of my Black family ancestors tombstones in Rural Hill Cemetery. I don't know when if ever I would be able to go to Mississippi to see them myself. Thank you for your time and efforts to help genealogists such as myself build our family trees.

Thank you so much for obtaining this photo! Findagrave volunteers are so generous with their help to other family searchers!
Just wanted to thank you for the transfer of the Kite memorials.

|David||RE: Photos from Kite Cemetery|
Thanks so much for allowing me to use the photos. I would be happy to accept transfer, even though Henry is a somewhat remote ancestor.
Again, thanks for all you do, especially bushwhacking to a place like the Kite Cemetery; it looks pretty remote. I'm always surprised when those small cemeteries survive to be found.

I was writing to request permission to use your photos of the Kite family members at the Kite Cemetery in Choctaw County, Mississippi. I would like to use them on my family tree at Ancestry.com.
Thanks so much.

She is my great 3rd great grandmother and the mother of my second great grandfather, how wonderful that you have placed this information. My beloved Roxanna Kirkham and her husband Robert Jemison Kirkham are also there somewhere in Choctaw Mississpi dying a few months later. John L. Woodward her son also died, but we don't know where.
What you have done is a gift from the angels, thank you.
