Bio and Links
Bio Photo .I use Familysearch all of the time. Not every detail is accurate but it gives you a jumping off point. I have just been playing around in the Familysearch Family Tree and I have notice that "Stories and Documents" section have familysearch members "Copy/Pasting" from Find A Grave Memorials. A few of them MINE. I like to think I am a story teller though my guys think I am just long winded.
. A LOT of time and energy goes into research and writing the stories on My Memorials. My Family and people who have gotten a hold of me and led me on the trail of their lives so I could tell their story, but they are no relation to me or mine or indirect connection. IF YOU are going to "Copy/Paste" these stories, NOT just mine but Every contributor on this SITE, who puts in the energy and sometimes expense of creating these Memorial pages PLEASE give the Find A Grave MEMORIAL #'s at the very least:::OR SOURCE IT in the Source section.
Please Use the information, that is why I put it out there on Find A Grave, most of it is fully verified, but use at your risk. IF you "Copy/Paste" please give my Memorial # credit so I can smile to my guys, 'some people appreciate my long winded." It is not like we get paid for this research. Please Do not steal our efforts and have it look like yours on Familysearch or Ancestory.

.Grampa understood that 'doing' is the best teacher. When I was 7, during Thanksgiving vacation, my teacher asked us to ask any visiting relatives, about their parents and grandparents and we will be able to fill what she called our family tree.
I took Grampa's clues and I looked up info. in encylopedia's my parents had. My great teacher allowed me to bring home a globe, to help with my interest in this topic. Grampa and I had our heads over that globe all evening. He showed me how to find the similiar map, flat in those encylopedias, by comparing the letters,(which I knew and loved) in a word, no matter how big, to know I had a match.
. Grampa died of cancer, just weeks after that incredable project.
> My Uncle Bill has much of these same teaching skills. He took this niece with so many questions to the other end of the cemetery, and showed me who was there, that I could call mine. He took me to the family's homestead, in Fruita, that was nothing resembling what it was when he married my Mom's sister, and described what he remembered. I Walked in their footsteps.
Thirty years later, it was his words in my eyes and Grampa's in my ears, that took me to a place, I call home.
. If you serve your country, in the Military, Police Force, Fire Departments or in the Schools. For what it is worth, you have my gratitude.
. When I fulfill a request, I will get every family member, surounding my original request. If I can catch connecting names, either in the field or in the records, I get those as well. IN family plots I always try to find those within the plot that do not have stones{maybe there was a stone but the GOPHERS got there before me} and forward that info.
THe pic on my bio was a great man who believed in being kind. If someone does something for you you repay them. I have spent my life trying to honor him.
This site those people who have helped me the most: Nancy K, Chantell, Shirleen, Kara and others there is nothing I CAN Do to help them in the way they have helped me. So I try to pay it forward. By finding these burials and everyone in them and trying to track down and link the entire family.
I cannot THANK YOU people enough. So I hope doing for someone I can help, shows how grateful I AM TO YOUR HELP.

As a child, I wanted to time travel backward. Now there are people I want to meet.
History is my Passion. Knowing how my Family Connects is the Cream on top.

I finally tracked these two down and listed them in the Salt Lake City Cemetery. You have a photo of their headstones with their grandparents John Hirst #41206563 and Charlotte Brook Hirst #41206612. Would you please add the photo to Elizabeth Jenkins #137374459 and Fanny Jenkins #137374612?
Thank You & Much Appreciated Nancy find a grave #47237121.

RE: ooooppppsss
Hahaha, better late than never! (; Funny how things slip our minds and come back to us later.

Midterms are just getting over. Fall break is next week (yay!). Hoping I can take a trip up the canyon in time to see all the colors before the rain/snow/whatever comes and knocks them all down.

Take care!

RE: Ida Dorchester Giles
Hi, M,
Thank you for all your information and all your help! I thought that the grave # provided for Ida sounded wrong. I have noticed that the SLC Cemetery often gave the burial date for the death date. I'll try to follow your advice. Thanks again, Kathy Anne

Hi, M.,
I don't know if you ever had the Plot # for Ida. D. Giles, but I made a mistake in my previous message. It is listed in SLC Cemetery records on Ancestry as Plot# 7084. If you already have that, sorry for all the confusion. Kathy Anne
