|Bio and Links|
I have now been back in Colorado for a couple of years but I am still dreaming of waterways, bridges, moss covered trees, and yes the rain. I don't know if I will ever get use to the snow but I am told we need the snow for the water levels during the summer. I am unsure of the numbers but I believe rain works better and it doesn't require a shovel. |
I have been lucky enough to connect with family and friends. While in Oregon I had some great Colorado volunteers that helped me with my family's stones and have had the pleasure of meeting and working with them in Colorado and meeting new ones along the way.
I have had quite a couple of years, babies born; friends & family that have passed; reconnected with friends from high school; getting to know my granddaughter, and I have had two surgeries.
I have been working a number of cemeteries trying to help family find family and over the last three years have heard some of the saddest and happiest stories from family that were so happy I helped them locate a missing loved one. I still get surprised when someone mentions the number of memorials I have loaded or the number of photo requests I have completed. I do this for you and the numbers mean nothing. If I was somehow able to help one of you during the day find an aunt, uncle, sibling, grandparent, parent, or childhood friend – it is you that has given me a reason to smile that day and continue on with what I do.
Also, I believe in transferring photos to family no matter how many generations removed. I believe the four generation rule is used for hoarders that are interested in numbers and just want to keep your family. One of my pet peeves is people taking over or starting memorials that do not know how or have any intention of maintaining the site. I feel the family belongs to the family but should be with a family member that is going to insure that links and edits are going to be taken care of in a timely manner.
I do not transfer to non family – I volunteer my time for the family and that is where I want them to end up. I am impressed and grateful that there are people who take time to work on groups and any editing you require or photos you need – I am your girl but NO I don't transfer to non family.

I have deleted the memorial I had created for Dean Houchin on 9/27/2014 because it was a duplicate to the one you created for him on 11/27/2010. It should be pointed out that creating a memorial for someone before their death is against Find-A-Grave policy AND it places their information online for general public access and identity theives. I discovered the latter when working on my family tree in Ancestry.com. A living relative appeared in a search as being deceased.
Thanks for taking the time to photograph the burial area. I really appreciate it!

Thank you for the picture of the plot for Mary E. McCune. It is appreciated.
|Twila||Martha Magji Puttkamer Bromley and Frederick Arthur Bromley|
Thank you so much for the wonderful pictures you posted to these two Memorials. I truly appreciate your work.
Unfortunately for me, I realized that Martha is not my relative even though she married a Bromley. Your work is wonderful and there are now two more Memorials with beautiful pictures, thanks to your work.
