I manage~~not own~~the memorials I place on FindaGrave. Please use the SAC (edit feature) when asking for changes. This prevents mistakes because the edit feature connects me to the right memorial. Please read this ★ ☆ ★ FAQs ★ ☆ ★ before you intentionally make a duplicate of a memorial (which is a no no): I do transfer out of guidelines a lot if I feel you will maintain the memorial you request better than I can ~ which means a beloved aunt, cousin, best friend, etc. (Just don't ask for a whole cemetery or a whole list of the same name especially if you happened to find this site and have been a member for a few days). Stick around for awhile - contribute. Although a great place for genealogy this is a GRAVES REGISTRATION SITE!

Permission has been given to GenealogyTrails.com to use my photos for their excellent site.
YES - you have permission to use the photos I took for your personal family files. I would appreciate it if you cited where you found the photo and if possible link back to FindAGrave.com.
However unless you are a nonprofit organization, this is not to be copied & pasted on a commercial site or used for commercial publication without permission.

I love to have additional information to add to the memorials. In winter I go through what I have put up and link families, find additional dates, etc. Although it looks like I have more than I can handle, I have had no problem adding suggested information. I have 35 years of experience in family history research and will be happy to add links or more biographical information on your family.

If you are requesting a photo - all information is helpful. Many people only have flat to the ground memorials, and they are difficult to find. If you know of other family names that might be close by, that is very helpful in large cemeteries. Also if your memorial served in the military, that is very helpful as most cemeteries commemorate with a flag.

I love the challenge of photographing really old stones. I also love the zincs - which were an inexpensive product for the time but have outlasted some of the more expensive marbles and granites. The zincs were very popular during the Prohibition Era because the insides were hollow and easily accessible.

The people we ~meet~ in these resting places are integral in putting together family history. The memorial may be all that is left.
★ ☆ ★ ☆ ★ ☆ ★ ☆ ★ ☆ ★ ☆ ★ ☆ ★ ☆
Thank you to all the volunteers who have added photos to my memorials, taken the time to send me information, added their own memorials, found a dupe or two, and have been kind and respectful.

It is so important that if you have an old cemetery near you, to get these stones recorded before weather and/or vandals get to them.
★ ☆ ★ ☆ ★ ☆ ★ ☆ ★ ☆ ★ ☆ ★★ ☆
I do try to wipe off debris and pull some overgrown grass out of the way, but I will not harm the stone in any way. Plus I do not pull up flowers, even if they are wilted.
It's a bit of work to take the photos, re size and sometimes enhance the lettering to be made readable, enter names and upload the photos. I do this lovingly. Please respect that.
★ ☆ ★ ☆ ★ ☆ ★ ☆ ★ ☆ ★ ☆ ★
I have a camera that takes good photos,however the condition of the stone may make it unreadable or the stone is so damaged that there is no information. Bright sunny days might be good for walks but can wash out headstone inscriptions. I do retakes a lot.

John W Rice
For John W Rice born 1893 and died 1918. He is buried in Pinesbridge Cemetery in Beacon Falls, New Haven County Connecticut. The find a grave relationship is incorrect. It shows Hannah Dayton Rice as his spouse. John W Rice is the son of John W Rice b 1866-1934 and Hortince b 1864-1949. Hannah Dayton Rice is his grandmother. Other ancestry family members say he died in WWI but I haven't found that record. Hope this helps. Sara

Finn/Travis - Sandberg
Thank you very much for posting the photo of my great-grandmother's stone at Cedar Hill in Hartford. I know I do have a photo of it, taken years ago when I visited the Hartford area.

Also, I see you have Oscar & Maria Sandberg at Cedar Hill, also. Both were Swedish immigrants, Maria being my grandmother's sister. Too bad they didn't use the Swedish spelling of her maiden name - Jansson.Maria Wilhelmina Jansson b 14 Dec 1887 in Skruvstad, Grums, Varmland, Sweden.Emigrtated in 1906.
Oscar was born 21 Dec 1885 in Sweden and immigrated in 1905. Obituary, Hartford Courant, 2 July 1950.
Oscar Edward Sandberg of 3206 Avenue A., Bradenton, Fla., formerly of Hartford, died Saturday morning at Lawrence Memorial Hospital, New London. Born in Vermland, Sweden, he was a toolmaker at the Niles-Bement-Pond Company until he retired three years ago. He was a member of Covenant Congregational Church and Norden Lodge 1, Order of Vassa. He leaves his wife, Helen Janson Sandberg; a son, Harry W. Sandberg of Wilmington, Del.; a daughter, Mrs. John Hopkinson, Jr., of West Hartford; three sisters, Mrs. Sigge Gustafson of Hartford and two others in Sweden. Funeral services will be held at the Taylor and Modeen Funeral Home, 233 Washington Street, Monday at 1:30 p.m. Burial will be held in Cedar Hill Cemetery. Friends may call at the funeral home after noon today.

RE: re Name = StweRKa ?
I still think it is a typo: the r and t are next to each other on the keyboard, AND there are NO others with that name on Find A Grave, but Stwerka does exist..... What does a gravestone "say"?

Abel Ellis, Find A Grave Memorial# 44933887.
This is likely a cenotaph or memorial marker, not a tombstone. Depending on where Ellis died on the Humboldt River it was 180 to over 400 miles to the nearest town in California in 1850. From there it was roughly another 100 miles to the nearest seaport which could ship remains home. It was impossible to carry a body hundreds of miles in the desert heat as wagons only traveled 15-20 miles per day. The vast majority of trail graves were either unmarked or the marker disappeared in a year or two preventing subsequent recovery for transport back east. Many families did erect cenotaphs "at home" in the east. The knowledge that such stones are "just" memorials and do not mark the actual graves was often lost over subsequent generations. Almost certainly this is the case with Abel Ellis and he is still buried somewhere in what is now Nevada (not New Mexico as on the marker).
