Bio and Links
I am an amateur genealogist and have found one of the best ways for me to collect hints on my family is to walk cemeteries. I currently live in California but many of the cemeteries I have walked are in Alabama. I take pictures of all the markers in cemeteries where I find ancestors. It is simply quicker than trying to write details down in the cemetery. If you have a Biography for one of the entries I would be happy to post it as well. I am not a typist and hopefully have not made tooooo many typos but if you see one please let me know so I can fix it
I am not related to many of the people I have added; entries are posted in the interest of genealogy and history, and the hope that someone will add my lost ancestors.

I will no longer do mass transfers of everyone with a specific surname in a cemetery. I will continue to add cemetery surveys as time allows.

Please use the "Suggest a change" link on the edit tab of a memorial to suggest changes or request transfers.

Correction needed.
I have tried to enter the correction necessary in the "correction" area, but have not recieved a response and it has not been corrected yet :). In the Bethany Baptist Church in Burnt Corn Alabama, there it an entry for a Ruby D Salter. The listing has it as Ruby Dean Salter. This is incorrect. It should be Ruby Dell Salter. I know this as she is my grandmother. If you need a death certificate or some documentation to make the correction, please let me know. Thank you!
