I will be happy to transfer relatives into your care - just send me an edit to do so.|
PLEASE.......when you find your relative's page, leave flowers and at least a short note. In that note, state your relationship to that person. This is a great way to find living members of your family. If you leave nothing, they do not know you are out there somewhere. Leaving this lets them know that you are also kin to them and they will contact you. This is a win, win situation.
The Story Tellers...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 it were, by 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 and losses, their never giving in or giving up, their resoluteness to go on and build 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 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.

Thanks so much for the transfers ! My husband thinks I'm nuts for digging into all this ancestry, lol.
Thank you for all your efforts and contributions to findagrave memorials
|Karen Ivey Herndon||Clifford J. Herndon & Charles Mauton Herndon|
Hey Judy, I received your edit request for Clifford J Herndon & Charles Mauton Herndon. I have left an edit request message for you in return for Charles Mauton. I have cited two census records from familysearch.org that shows the difference in the 2 records.
Let me know what you think,
Clifford J Herndon is my husband's father
Charles Mauton Herndon is my husband's grandfather
Benjamin James Herndon is my husband's great-grandfather
Ok Judy, got her info and added it. Thank you!

|Denise Fritts Perry||Dr. Lewis P. Hanvey|
Hi again -- well the research has begin in earnest now. His middle name is Petigrew (Petigrue). It was indeed, Ethel, the youngest daughter who was with her mother at the time of the shooting -- so far I have located 100+ articles regarding this event. I have walked the street where it happened and visited the lot where Mrs. Hanvey was living with her mother at the time of the shooting - she was only a few blocks from there when the incident happened. I am still trying the track the elder daughter, Hattie. I will update you when I can. Many thanks -- Dee
|Vickie Huddleston||Mamie Erskine Crawford-Oakland Cemetary Atlanta,GA|
I'm looking for surviving relatives of Mamie Erskine Crawford. She's buried in Oakland Cemetary in Atlanta, Fulton Co., Georgia, #75924277. My mother-in-law bought her family china several years ago. It has the initials MCE on the plates. My mother-in-law has moved into a retirement home and has had an estate sale. Mrs. Crawford's china was not sold at the sale and will be donated to charity tomorrow. I thought it would be nice to return it to the family. I've checked with the Oakland Cemetary Foundation as well as searched on Ancestry.com but have come up empty. Do you have contact information for anyone who might be related? Thank you-Vickie Huddleston
|Clarence J DILLION||CHANCEY-HAMILTON CO., TN|
Judy--Hello, Don't know if you have any kin here but I just felt like letting you know the wife and I photographed the entire cemetery last Friday and all the pictures SHOULD be uploaded by now---if you were wondering :-) However, I have a stinking kidney stone that needs to come out so it may be a few days. I love be part of seeing folks have a photo to go along with their memorial.
If you see any errors---PLEASE let me know.
Joe Maryville, TN
