Bio and Links
I started getting interested. In genealogy five years ago. I use Ancestry. And FaG.

We have learned that walking the cemeteries and taking photos are more accurate for adding data

When we are on vacations we find cemeteries in the area and take photos. It is interesting to see edits a year later that someone has located their family.

Four years ago we started using Find a Grave and just was out there looking for relatives. It is not a numbers game for me. It found us roaming around in cemeteries trying to locate my ancestors. We have been doing many memorials of people in many cemeteries. If you see someone that is your relative please ask for a transfer. We mostly have been in cemeteries in Webster Co, Hopkins Co Ky Recently we have been doing many Posey Co Indiana Cemeteries. I hope we can make a difference for people interested in locating their family. We long ago decided that inputting names from a book from libraries or other sources are subject to inaccuracy. You have to do the actual walking in the cemeteries to confirm dates and names and families. We take managing memorials seriously. If you want the memorials, you tacitly accept the responsibility of editing them.

Thanks to my husband Milton Yuan for developing my family genealogy website I want to share the link with you It will link my family and ancestors and added pictures that have been collected and shared with anyone interested in the Foster/Egloff/Lively/Maag family

My family names i research are
Lively/Maag. My father s side. His grandparents were Henry and Appie Cates Maag

Egloff /Sanders. From Hopkins and Davidson Co Tenn
Cates from Slaughters Webster Co Ky extended family to Kannapolis NC

Huskey Webster Co Ky and Tenn

My maternal grandparents were Foster. They were from Virginia and came to Simpson Ky. Ending up in Indiana.

RE: Edmund cropper
Hi Linda, On the same monument with Edmund, on the other sides are William d.1914, Sarah d. 1849, and Mary d.1859. The photos are dark and hard to read, if you magnify they can be seen. If interested request them, or I can e-mail them to you. Ralph

Hi Linda,
Thanks so very much for the updated obituary. I have added it to his memorial and linked his parents. I have also given you credit for providing it. I really appreciate receiving this kind of information and I am always glad to add it. I noticed that you added his picture--thanks for that too. You do such good work!!!

RE: Earl & Evelyn O'Conner
You have done such a nice and time consuming job. Looks like you may have caught the tail end of the heat wave we're having around here, hopefully you were able to finish before these last couple of hot days! Hope you have a safe trip home to Indiana. I sure appreciate all you hard work and your interest in honoring those in Western Montana Veterans Cemetery.

Annie :)

Thanks for your help in giving Fountain a story and a family rather than just a plot with a headstone with his name misspelled. :o)

Pet Kelley-Barr
Could you add this photo to Catherine Hedges Kelley-Barr? This is my great grandmother and Pet was her nickname. Thanks a million. I just put the two women together thru an obituary of a daughter.
