Bio and Links
Bio Photo My name is Sheri and I am a genealogist, thus the nickname "Gen-Sher" because I like sharing my genealogy knowledge.

Find a Grave in creating little miracles everyday by connecting the living with their ancestors, relatives and friends. I BELIEVE IN MIRACLES.

By adding cemetery memorials to Find a Grave, I am trying to add correct birth and death information, including places, parents, spouse and children (and photos when possible). Sometimes the stone just has the years (i.e. 1876-1947). If I can find the birth and death dates on Ancestry, I like to add that information, too. I also try to find obituaries, then add links to other family members.

In placing obituaries on the memorials, I am attempting to provide families and researchers with additional information on the individual. Obituaries published in newspapers are in the public domain and as such, anyone can legally post an obituary and its photo. There are no copyrights unless noted in the obituary. I hope I don't offend anyone. If I do, I am sorry and will gladly delete information.

If you find mistakes on a memorial, please let me know by telling me in "Edit" on that memorial. I will gladly correct mistakes.

If you'd like to manage a memorial I posted, please let me know by asking under "Edit" on that memorial. I will transfer to any relative or friend, unless the memorial is for one of my own relatives.

I have always found cemeteries a place of serenity and meditation, away from the busyness of the everyday world. To me they are very sacred, as the lives of those buried there are sacred.

By sharing information of those who have "gone before", we are honoring their lives. Some people live and die without any fanfare. This site gives the dead their "Notice".

The Truitt sisters were each in their own way quite something! I was privileged to know them (especially as an impressionable young teenage girl).

Thanks so much for adding her obituary! We lived across the street from these wonderful people -- May Truitt, Helen (Truitt) and Russ Lawson -- in the early 1960s. They were inspirational and globe trotting. They introduced me to the "big wide world" out there from all of their fantastic trips and adventures!

Memorial# 84741477

I want to thank you for everything you do for Find A Grave. I add additional information to memorials whenever I am researching and you are lightning fast in adjusting the information, so I appreciate your acceptance of my suggestions.

I have been unable to contact you via your account. I wanted to send you some records to support my proposed change for Find A Grave Memorial# 84741477 (Thomas Sturgis Parks, Jr). I believe the middle name should be “Smith”. Please take a look at the supporting documentation in my Sallie Price Dickerson Family Tree on, especially the image for Thomas Smith Parks, Jr. & Frances Christine Showard - Certificate of Marriage.
