Bio and Links
Bio Photo Find A Grave memorials should be viewed as works in progress. I will gladly link families, add tidbits to memorials or correct my errors. Please let me know of errors on my memorials.
Pictures are worth a thousand words. My photos are not always good; due to the time of day of photo, old, old markers in poor condition which need cleaning, etc., but they are worth a view to someone searching for an ancestor. The only time I add an "overview" photo to someone else memorial is to show location which is a great help in finding a marker in a large area and/or to add data on the photo caption. If you wish for photos to be deleted, please let me know. Bad, good or better photos are yours if you want to use them on your records. If you wish for a better photo and the cemetery is close by, I will retake a photograph. I occasionally retake photos in which my original were in such poor shape and delete my old ones on the memorials. Excluding my own kin and a few special people, my memorials are up for grabs...use the "edit" and your FAG ID# to your request.
Obituaries are published in newspapers for all the world to read! Some obituaries are online, so millions of folks can read them. Often that information assists genealogist in making family ties and especially if there were infants listed. Each volunteer compiles memorials differently. Sometimes I add a portion of an obituary, sometimes more. I have found obituaries published out of my area that pulled the puzzle pieces together. Just be thankful you found something that might enhance your research. Remember we are volunteers, so thanks to all who add to Find A Grave. This is a great big 'ole wonderful website!!!
Find A Grave volunteers are special folks! A lady in Wisconsin posted tombstone photos today (Oct. 27, 2014) of my great-great-grandmother and her second husband. That just completed my memorials. I live in Alabama and I am unable to travel to Wisconsin for thanks for the kindness.

........................................................."HERITAGE OF ETOWAH COUNTY, ALABAMA"............................................................
We have only five (5) books left as of December 2014, so if you want one......order now! *****GREAT CHRISTMAS GIFTS!***** The books are hardbound, dark green with gold embossed lettering, size 9" x 12" collector's edition printed on acid-free paper, 314 pages. Articles were written about Etowah County families and submitted by family members. Some of the local churches, cemeteries, towns, military, etc. articles are included in the book. The cases have never been opened, so books are new. You will be surprised at the low cost of these last few cases of books! Every penny will be used by the Etowah County Heritage committee members to buy genealogical books for Gadsden Public Library, Gadsden, Alabama. We appreciate your inquiry regarding the cost, etc. for the Etowah County Heritage books - email:
