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 Ancestry.

. 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.

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

RE: Volunteer searches????
Kind of late notice, but if you are around later tomorrow morning, I will hopefully be up at the cemetery probably around 11 or so for a little while. I just barely found out I have to stop in Sandy earlier that morning anyway, so I figured I'd make the trip count. :) Otherwise I would have let you know sooner.

Anyway, I'm still living in Orem! I actually don't mind the drive too much, it's nice to get up north and get a change of scenery every once in a while. My best friend lives up in Salt Lake anyway, so I find myself up there every so often. :)

Oh those dang attachments :) I believe email providers have a limit to how big a file you can send in one email... not sure what it is though but I've ran into that problem before. So you can send more than one photo, possibly just by attaching a whole folder, I'm just not sure how much it'll let you attach.

Let me know if you ever need help with the technical stuff and I can do my best. It can be a real roadblock sometimes!

Anyway, let me know if you will be around tomorrow. I have until about 1:30 or 2 before I have to head back down to the school, if I don't roast in the sun first. :) If not, that's totally okay, no worries, it'll be good for me to get some more practice either way :)

Hope your weekend was good!
Thank you as always

RE: Volunteer searches????
Blehh... probably won't be able to make it up there this week. I'll have to shoot for next week since I KNOW I'll have at least one afternoon off from work since I changed my schedule availability now that school is starting.

My internship is for a company launching new products on Amazon. It started out as a writing internship simply creating the Amazon listings, and turned into a marketing internship... not exactly what I was expecting or going for, but it's been fun so far. :) Just takes up a lot of time! I'm probably going to keep going at least until December and see where that leads me... it's also a nice way to earn some extra money!

I love that you know all the good cemetery sections. I'm still learning but as of right now I'm loving anything with big shade trees :) Sounds fun chasing that sun haha. Some stones just don't want a good picture taken I guess! :) And I totally agree with your GINORMOUS WEB.. there's almost always a connection somewhere!

I'll give you some advanced notice once I finally figure out when I can go back up, and maybe you can help me track down my missing requests if you're not busy. I'm crossing my fingers for next Wednesday now, since I only have one short class that day, but who knows with my luck :) You will hear from me though!

As always, you're the best :)

Take care,

Thank you!
I appreciate so much your time and effort in looking for the grave of Edmund Bateman. Thank you for posting the photo of the location. That was going the extra mile! God bless! Karen

RE: Volunteer searches????
Ah, I went yesterday afternoon! I will probably be spending my last week of freedom at work. :) And yes, it was VERY hot. I dragged the boyfriend along to test his keepability. ;) He was a trooper. Funny thing though, as soon as we got there I thought to myself, 'I should have asked Monica if she was coming up any time soon!'

I'm probably going to need to go up again soon, though. I haven't been up to the cemetery since last summer, and BOY did I get bad at navigating those plats. That and I didn't get to plan it out as well this time around. Couldn't even find half of my claims before we had to head home. Regretted claiming them since I was so bad at finding them, I probably should have just skipped that part. West Plat was especially difficult for me.

I'll definitely let you know if I end up planning another trip this week or next week! Maybe Wednesday for a short stop... if I can work it out. This has felt like my busiest summer... I took an extra class for the first half and an internship this second half, plus I've kept working. But I'm excited to start my new classes :) Hopefully only a year and a half until graduation!

I also have not forgotten about the Saxtons you kindly sent me. :) Thank you for that. I'll be getting to them shortly!

As always, thanks for thinking of me. It makes my heart happy. :) I hope you're doing well.

Take care!

Stay home!
You had better wait awhile until it is not so hot.... I really worry that you will have a sun stroke, and those wasp/bee bites are nothing to ignore. A girl here in our town died last year by getting several bee stings! You should carry some spray and also antihistamine, in case you get bit again.

I found a bunch more babies (on the records) buried there, but doubt they have stones. I am in no hurry to get photos, especially with you having to do so much work to get them!

They can wait until fall...take care and thanks for all you do!

Hey "ME":

This one was a mystery and I'm SO happy you found a stone! It does not matter to me who has the memorial ...I just try to link to family and she's not my direct - it took me a year to figure out that the Utah Data Base had spelled her married name wrong, and also the Obit had too - how dumb.

The reason I linked her husband's DC was because it had the correct spelling of ANSTEE.

She was his second wife, so I was wrong in assuming she was buried with him - nice to find her near her parents! You're a JEWEL!

"ME TOO", ha!

RE: Reuben and Zurviah Gleason
Wow. Sorry you had to deal with some of the Find A Grave crazies.... I have found that most people are fine and sincerely interested in having correct info on this site.

Sorry, I do not know where these two are buried and I am no longer on ancestry. I would GUESS that they are buried in Franklin County in MA, not NY; but I have no further info. Regards and thanks for your contributions to Find A Grave.

RE: Ralph
No, he's not family. Just someone who needed to be linked up. I was just doing mother, father, and spouse at that point and I'm glad you found Ralph so we could link him too. I'm pretty secure in who I'm linking. I'm very capable with familysearch and I always apply the logic test. I am trying to find siblings and link them too. It just takes time. However, this is some of the most rewarding work I've ever done. I'm glad there is someone else out there looking at the big picture. Thanks again for your help.
