Lord, help me dig into the past
And sift the sands of time,
That I might find the roots that made
This family tree of mine.

Lord, help me trace the ancient roads
On which my father's trod,
And led them through so many lands
To find our present sod.

Lord, help me find an ancient book
Or dusty manuscript,
That's safely hidden now away
In some forgotten crypt.

Lord, let it bridge the gap that haunts
My soul when I can't find,
The missing link between some name
That ends the same as mine.

Added vs Managed
Ive had others transfer memorials to me to manage as they wished to do it, not because I asked. Now that I have them, I am happy to manage them as most are related somehow.

A Bit About Me
I have enjoyed genealogy since 2000. Like to add any cousins to my tree. Like to help people and take pictures of all stones in any cemetery. A lot of the time I am not related to the person's stones that I post but if in Nelson, Washington, Casey or Marion Counties of KY - my children are probably realted.

*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*
We are the chosen. In each family, there is one who seems called to find the ancestors. To put flesh on their bones and make them live again, to tell the family story and to feel that somehow they know and approve. Doing genealogy is not a cold gathering of facts, but instead, breathing life into all who have gone before. We are the storytellers of the tribe.

Ruth Kelty
Iadded the picture of Ruth's grave stone to her memorial but I just wanted to let you know that her death date is not on the stone. I took the picture in 2012. Next time I go to St. Michael's I will confirm that it is still not on the stone.
Thanks

Rhonda,
You have headstone photos for some of my distant cousins at Antioch Baptist Church Cemetery, Casey County, KY.
Biner Marie Sapp Hayes is memorial # 30413794.
Would it be ok to use your photos on my Ancestry.com family tree? I will include (Find-a-Grave photo & permission by Rhonda Patton Wathen)for each photo I use.
Thanks in advance
Wanda Pierce Johnson

Since you are not related to George, would you consider transferring his memorial to me?

Just wanted to let you know that his death month was May instead of March. Do you know anything about this man? He was my great uncle, but I never met him.

You will need to click on "archives." There is a small charge for viewing the obit.

RE: Non altered photo Thanks!
I was on a work assignment in Pensacola and happy to help. I agree with you about being able to get good photos. I didn't do anything special for the ones I took. Side lighting would have brought up more detail and there's always the contrast tool in Photoshop. Cheers, Ed

Help. I do not understand your message to my email address that this memorial (of my mother --who died when I was two)is a "duplicate of one posted in correct cemetery: Most Pure Heart Of Mary Catholic Cemetery". Memorial I listed cites "Burial: Most Pure Heart of Mary Catholic Cemetery". Please advise, time permitting. Mary, daughter of deceased.
