I believe that genealogy is made much easier by the common efforts of many.
I am in the Dallas Metroplex and have spent much time in the local cemeteries. You will also find that I travel to Missouri, Tennessee, Oklahoma or other locations in search of kinfolk.
If you are connected to any of the families in my virtual cemeteries, I would love to hear from you.
This is a labor of love. Photographs confirm information but the labor of those that enter from obits and those that enter personal family information will prove to be invaluable to those that come after us.
If you have any additional information to share on any of the memorials that I have set up, I will be happy to enter your information or link to other memorials.
I am especially interested in older pictures that show life as it was. If you have more than 1 or 2 pictures of this type, let me know. We can place any number of pictures (within reason) on the internet for all to see.
As hard as I try not to, from time to time I do make mistakes. If you do see a mistake, please bring it to my attention politely. I tend to ignore rude and/or ignorant folks or those that think the world revolves about them.
Corrections and additions to memorials are made much easier if you use the "Edit" tab on the memorial. Personal correspondence may be by way of my email. I may be a bit slow in responding to emails if I am out of town at the time.

Most of all, enjoy the history of your kin folk.
