Please contact us using the "PUBLIC" message board below or via the EDIT tab on an individual memorial page for edit requests and transfer requests. It was necessary to remove our email address because of spam and junk email not related to Find a Grave.

We strive to respond to EDITS, TRANSFER requests and QUESTIONS within a week. We enjoy sharing information and research, are glad to volunteer to take photos, and would like to transfer a memorial page that we have created to a family member or friend rather than keep it.

If you use the photos we post on Find a Grave on your Ancestry Tree or for any other purpose, it would be kind of you to give us credit.

We have been pleasantly surprised by how many of the individual and family plot photos that we posted on Find a Grave have been posted on Ancestry Trees . . . but without any reference to the photos' original source:
Find a Grave: Armstrong History

We spend time to provide the best photos possible that will enhance your family genealogy documentation.

You will see that we will take complete family plot photos, and photos that include the entire gravestone, and close up photos.

We take the extra time to decipher faint and illegible inscription text (when possible) and provide labels on the photos so that you know what's on the gravestone and can see the intricate detail that may be lost in years to come.

Many times we will type extra information in the "caption" section of the photo we post that we have obtained from the cemetery office; for example.

We would rather share too much information written in complete sentences than make assumptions and/or write with abbreviations.

It has been helpful in our research when other volunteers have provided us with the same consideration. In one instance, a volunteer provided a family plot photo with an unrelated name that unlocked many doors and opened up a wealth of information that may have taken much longer to uncover!

That's why we try to provide complete information and take the extra time taking photos when we fulfill your photo request(s).

Whenever we are out at a cemetery to fulfill a photo request, we will also try to take several additional photos and post photos to memorial pages without photos. Many times, we end up spending way toooooo much time at the cemetery and it's dark by the time we leave! We just lose track of time!

We have grown to realize it's important to document the works of art of the old gravestones and the people the gravestones represent before they are lost forever! Losing track of time in cemetery outweighs losing priceless images and information forever!

We are especially captivated by the artistry and the symbolism of the "tree stump" gravestones that were made available to members when they purchased an insurance policy with the Woodmen of the World. Sadly, after the 1920's the gravestones were no longer made because it became too costly to custom make each individual "tree stump" gravestone.

If you come across a "tree stump" gravestone, would you kindly leave the memorial number on our message board below? Thanks!

We hold our military veterans in high esteem, honor their sacrifice and appreciate their dedication to our country. The gravestone of each veteran reminds us of their service.

We understand what its like to walk the rows of a cemetery looking for a name to fulfill a photo request for someone we don't even know - but realize how important it is to your research and family documentation.

It's the way we "pay it forward" for the many kind and wonderful people we have crossed paths with along our journey.

THANK YOU . . . if you have fulfilled a photo request for us! THANK YOU . . . if you have added a memorial page! THANK YOU . . . if you have recognized our volunteer work and gave us credit for our time when you used a photo we posted on a memorial page! THANK YOU . . . if you have volunteered time! THANK YOU . . . for being KIND and treating other volunteers with respect!

It's our goal to "pay forward" the time and kindness as volunteers to others.

We are dedicated to keeping family history alive for the next generation!

As each new member of a family is added, the words of G Massey sums it up the best with his quote, "A sweet new blossom of humanity fresh fallen from God's own home to flower on earth."

My family tree is from Cornwall, England.

The spelling of our name was TRURAN and changed to Truan when they landed in Connecticut.

You are very welcome. If you need further research done on your family from Butte, I would be happy to help. I volunteer at the Butte Archives and I have a lot of resources there such as death records & newspapers for obituaries. I don't charge for my research either. :-) I'm always happy to help out if I can.

Plot photos

I am intrigued by a number of your family plot photos whereby you identify individual plots by numbers and then add a descriptor note on the photo identify which individuals correspond to each number.

I take a lot of extended family plot photos and would love to know how to do it. Would you share?

RE: Ralph Cemetery
I'm a little confused. Can you send me a FindaGrave Memorial number of one of the folks in the cemetery so I can determine which Ralph Cemetery you are referring to? Thanks.

I am working on the genealogy for my wife, and Paula (Casper) Sasover is an ancestor. Please let me know how you are connected, and whether I can help with info or vice versa.
