Historic Oregon Newspapers has added more newspapers. Today there are 100. Check out this site:)
*There is a new modification/feature on FindAGrave that I've just discovered by accident and that FindAGrave did not individually notify contributors about. Please check out this feature because when it works, it is a great feature:)
Go to the FindAGrave website at this link for their directions and "read everything" under "Editing and Correcting Memorial Information".
and also look under this title in the directions: "What if I suggest a correction and the contributor doesn't respond?"
On another subject:
*Recently I received an email from another contributor who told me of finding stories in Hawaiian newspapers for his relative on the Library of Congress - Chronicling America - Historic American Newspapers website. His relative was my memorial in Oahu Cemetery in Honolulu. So I searched the Library of Congress website and found numerous articles for his relative in newspapers in Hawaii and I also found numerous articles in Tennessee newspapers where I am working on a family tree for a friend. Here is the link to the Library of Congress site:
July 14, 2013:
I am currently working on a project that you might be interested in. I am searching Historic Oregon Newspapers and the Grant County News (in particular), Canyon City, Oregon (1879-1908) online for marriages, births, deaths/obits, and stories of interest and putting them on FindAGrave memorials and sometimes creating new memorials. These old newspapers are frequently difficult to read and therefore the news clips may be difficult, but not impossible, to read. I don't have time to attempt to Photoshop them to make them easier to read but I wouldn't put them on the memorials if they weren't readable. There are approximately 50 newspapers on this website (70 newspapers as of July 2013 so 20 more have been added) and they seemed to share news stories probably because some of the newspapers were owned by the same person. There is so much history "hiding" in these old newspapers - you would be amazed! If you want to search yourself - go to this link:
"The Historical Oregonian (newspaper) 1861-1987" is also a good place to search and is free "if" you live in Clackamas, Washington, or Multnomah Counties in Oregon. You have to go to the Multnomah County Library website and sign up. Or you can request a librarian do a search for you or you may need to get a library card to sign up.
Here is a link to the California Digital Newspaper Collection which is free but you have to sign up:
Please DON'T use the Virtual Flowers feature to post corrections as I get no notice when a VF is posted and therefore can't add or make corrections. Use the VFs only for tributes and condolences as per F.A.G. guidelines.
PLEASE PLEASE ADD PHOTOS TO MEMORIALS. THIS IS VERY IMPORTANT AS YOU MAY HAVE THE ONLY EXISTING PHOTOS!!!
When you photograph in a cemetery, please take photos of the cemetery entrance and a picturesque view(s) of the cemetery in the event the home page for the cemetery does not have a photo(s) of the cemetery. Then you can post your photo(s) to the home page. ALSO, please don't take photos looking down on a headstone unless there is engraving on top of the headstone. If possible, squat to take a photo as it will be a much better photo.
I am willing to consider transfering ownership to you if you have a family member among my records. PLEASE use the "Edit" tab on the memorial you want transferred and then "Suggest any other correction…". This is the "correct way" to request a transfer. I may not transfer to you if the number of memorials that you manage is significantly greater than the number that you have contributed OR if you are only working on your own family and not contributing to the FAG community as a whole.
NOTICE: If you want to use any of my photos that I have posted on FAG you are welcome to do so as long as it is for genealogical research and is neither immoral or illegal! Please give me credit for my own photos if you post them in your family tree, etc. Thanks.
I liked going to cemeteries as a child, looking at headstones and listening to my relatives talk about deceased family members. Most years, I went with my grandparents, Arch and Manila Jones, to the Monument Cemetery, Grant County, Oregon which was a weed patch except for Memorial Day when family would get together and bring flowers and clean off the graves and visit.
I hope to help others by posting memorials and photos of pioneer cemeteries in Central and Eastern Oregon and the Willamette Valley, Oregon.

No just doing research and found this info.
|DayDreamer||Michael D Upmeyer|
thank you for transferring my cousin to me. and thanks also for the helpful information on your profile page. Pat
|James Turner Harris||RE: Cora Fehrenbacher|
I am not related in anyway to this research at all. I am actually helping some one who has Malone ancestry in their family. I was studying Cora Malone when I found her and her husband's memorial. There are reasons why they and I do not want my name associated with any findings that I forward as submissions to enhance Find A Grave memorials. Thank you for being understanding.
|Anonymous||RE: Cliff Burials in Forest Hills Cemetery|
I'm sorry, I meant Familysearch.org for the census information on the Cliff Family buried in the Forest Hill Cemetery in Houghton, Michigan
|Anonymous||RE: Cliff Burials in Forest Hills Cemetery|
I looked on "seekingmichigan.org" and found the 1870 census
and there is James Cliff born 1835 died 31 May 1877, his wife Ann born 1835. Ann is then listed as a widow in the 1900 census. I think these are the people you are looking for. The Joseph and Ernest listed would be two of their children
|K Haden||Jones Relatives|
Thank you for transferring Richard Jones and his wife Dorothy Amos Poindexter Jones - my 4th great grandparents. We share Richard's parents as common ancestors. My research of the Jones family can be found here

|Mike Sykes||RE: Reynolds Family|
You're welcome for the photos Pam. What a tragedy for that family, and your father-in-law. I can relate, my brother, a pilot for over 30 years also died in a plane crash. I'll email you another photo of the Reynolds / Ware plot, with the names imposed on their spaces.
|Stombell||RE: Mary Hilsabeck|
It was our pleasure, especially since she was an ar my nurse. We put Clyde up as well. Not sure of his relationship with her, so we didn't link the two - you may want to do that.

Did you recently put in a photo request for James Blaylock in Chowchilla?
|Kenn Evans, II||RE: Mabel Nagel|
Georgia has not yet done it. I don't know why and I don't ask. We did this past Saturday put Mabel's Brand from the ranch on the new windmill at the First Street Park. Photos of the event can be found on OldTrailsMuseum.Org
