My name is Janice and I live in central Arkansas. My husband and I are retired now and I have been doing some family research on both sides of our family. A friend told me about the Find a Grave website and it has helped me find where loved ones are buried. The site is also a very nice way to help others who are looking for Family and Friends that have passed away.|
I am only too happy to take photos for anyone if I'm in the area. If you want a copy of the original photo, please let me know as soon as possible. I only keep them for a short while and then delete them from my computer.
I try to be as accurate as I can when posting on this site, but sometimes mistakes are made. If you discover I have accidently posted something wrong on your loved one's site, please let me know and I will correct it. I will gladly transfer any memorial. If you email me, please put FIND A GRAVE in the subject line.
