Bio and Links
Bio Photo I first discovered this site when I was researching descendants through one of the proven "royalty" lines. I was interested in finding where some of these individuals were buried and was hoping to visit England in the near future.

My England trip has not panned out yet, but I did discover that I liked this site due to the fact that an individual could be personalized by adding photos, taking pictures of headstones, and adding bios. I felt this somehow draws you in closer to the person. I love the fact that you can leave notes also.

I have told everyone that I know about this site and I and some friends have been doing all we can to document some of our local cemeteries. We have completed our local cemeteries and have expanded into some of our surrounding communities. We have met some very nice people due to this project. We also post all of the local obits to FAG if the obit states which cemetery they are located in.

We also volunteer to put out flags on Memorial Day and Veteran's Day. It only takes a few hours, and, let's face it, some of these guys can use the help. They are always so grateful, and the ceremonies are always beautiful.

I would also like to thank the volunteers who take time to take pictures of headstones for me at cemeteries that I will probably never get to see. Recently, I found where one of my fathers relatives was buried, and a volunteer took a picture of the grave. I do appreciate each and every one of you!

I encourage everyone to adopt a cemetery, scour the local papers for obits, and tell all their friends and neighbors about this site. Everyone benefits!

Happy Hunting!!!

Gloria Dunham
Hello, I was looking up someone on Find A Grave and accidently came across this memorial for Gloria. My daughter, Kathy, was her daughter-in-law. We met her and her husband, Michael, when our children started dating when we all lived in Schaumburg and Hoffman Estates, IL (suburbs of Chicago). I had not seen her gravesite as we live in Florida. Are you a relative or friend? Gloria was such a loving person and we had lots of fun shopping on Rodeo Drive in early 1980s when we visited them in Bakersfield. Would love to hear from you. Loraine Rose, Tampa.

Yup, Eastview Cemetery.
Hi there.
I have been doing loads of photo work at Eastview and came across a pair of "Satterfield's". They had not been entered.
So, I was wondring if you would like me to transfer them over to your care?
Best to you and all yours, Bud
