|Bio and Links|
|I was born and raised in Iowa, but have called CA home for over 25 years.|
I am new to family history research, but I am hooked!
I recently made some connections on Find A Grave and am quickly learning what a great tool it is in searching through family history.
I also discovered I have a passion for indexing (and photographing) local cemeteries. If we all do our part, the information each of us needs will be right at our fingertips.
Thank you to those responsible for this fabulous website. What an incredible tool and service you provide!
Your tombstone stands among the rest;
neglected and alone
The name and date are chiseled out
on polished, marbled stone
It reaches out to all who care
It is too late to mourn
You did not know that I'd exist
You died and I was born.
Yet each of us are cells of you
in flesh, in blood, in bone.
Our blood contracts and beats a pulse
entirely not our own.
Dear Ancestor, the place you filled
one hundred years ago
Spreads out among the ones you left
who would have loved you so.
I wonder if you lived and loved,
I wonder if you knew
That someday I would find this spot,
and come to visit you.

|Sharon Godfrey||Birth year|
Becky, just a quick note to make a correction to the birth year of my great-grandfather. Clearly the Headstone is inscribed March 4, 1854 however you transcribed the date to read 1859. Please make this correction as it appears incorrect. As a family member, I want to see family information transcribed correctly as the date indicates on the Headstone. Thank you in advance for doing so Sharon Kay Wilson Godfrey daughter of Nedra Louise Craig and Donald Raymond Wilson.
Thanks Becky you are awesome! Am hoping tomorrow night to get bio's and pictures added. Wish everyone was so easy to work with as you were. I truly appreciate it.
|dlvissermaxey||Transfer of Bullers family|
I am new to find a grave as far as entering information that is. I have used it as a genealogy tool for a couple of years now. I see that you have the Bullers family in the Sheppard Cemetery in Gifford, Iowa. I was wondering if you would or could transfer them to me. I have their obituaries and pictures I would like to post to them as well as linking them to other family members buried in Williamsburg, Iowa. Thanks so much for all you have done so far. Curious how does California get to rural Gifford, Iowa?
|JimH||RE: Clarcy Mick Bechtel|
Thanks for writing - Clarcy is my wife's grandmother, she knew her well. Coincidentally, Clarcy's nickname in the family was Grandma Becky.
Looking forward to communicating more on this subject........

|Gary Carlsen||RE: Re: Obituaries/Memorial|
Becky: I do volunteer obituary look ups in Monterey County, and if the person is not on Find A Grave I start a memrorial. If there is a memorial already exsisting I try to have the owner paste in the obit. I have obits for 3 memorials at IOOF in Salinas belonging to you. They are members of the Blackie family. If you can not help I understand. Thanks Gary

Becky, I didn't expect you to transfer him to me, but thank you for doing it!
Becky: Will you add obituaries to your memorials?

From the Jan 9, 1918 San Mateo Evening News:
MATULICH-AMAYA. Bernard Matulich and Margaret Amaya were married yesterday afternoon at the home of Mr. and Mrs. Joseph Ramirez on Younglove avenue. The quiet home wedding ceremonies were performed by Justice of the Peace H. J. Bias. Bernard Matulich has been an em ploye of the Saddle Rock restaurant for the past year.
So, "yesterday" was Jan 8, 1918.
