Bio and Links
Bio Photo I don't transfer to memorial collectors!! If that is you, don't expect a response!!!!!


Many people are studying their family history to find medical information. Among the conditions that are at least partly preventable or treatable are depression, diabetes, kidney disease, heart disease, and cancer. Omitting medical information is not polite, IMHO.

I found a statement about links that perfectly expresses my own beliefs. I'm posting it with permission.--------------------------
Let's help the next family member or researcher that visits a memorial by adding all the family links that we know. When family members are not linked, it makes the next person do the research all over again. Also, if we have the information, let's use it before it is forgotten.I also believe that family links make this site easier to use. The easier it is to use, the more it will be used and the better it will get.
Melaney Shaum---------------------------

My number of memorials managed is increasing because I apparently am the succession plan for a few contributors, at least partially. I don't mind, it's easy to maintain memorials.

RE: FHC Premium Sites
Thank you so very much. Most of these are new to me. I will have to go check out the FHC.

RE: Access at FHC
That would be fantastic, if you could give me the full list. Some of them I already subscribe to, but some of them, I have not heard of.

Thank you,

RE: Original Obits

Is Access the name of the genealogy site? I have purchased subscriptions to and, but there are still a LOT of newspapers that are not in those two paid subscriptions.

Hello, I wanted to let you know I have sent you several corrections through the "edit" tab. FYI.

I actually added that one on my own, LOL. I saw it on her death certificate that someone had written in "(cousin") next to her father's name, so I concluded that she married a cousin. I removed the maiden name, however, until you or someone else can find definitive proof. :)

RE: Allen/Covey
Why would I delete your response to me? You are rude.

Memorial #54826075 Jerusha Edwards
You sent a correction to me stating her maiden name is "Allen". It is indicated on the memorial in the bio that her maiden name is Allen and it lists her parents, and it lists her being married to a Covey as well. I will be leaving the memorial as is.

Jerusha is a great, great aunt

I always ask for a Cenotaph when I know about one. Did you send in the dupe on him?

RE: Kings Point Cemetery Photo
Thank you so very much for the kind words, Tom. I love sunsets, particularly, and you're correct to the fact that I was in the right place at the right time. God, our creator, has provided a beautiful place for us to live in. All of creation is absolutely beautiful and I love to capture awesome scenes to remind me of who He is.
