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".

Sheri,

Thank you so much for transferring my grandfather's memorial to me. It really means a lot. :-)

Thank You
Just to say thank you so much for your kind words about my dear Uncle Tom. He was a wonderful man. My Mum's baby brother, and they were very close. So many young men and women suffer in wartime, and civilians too. If only we could all live in peace, how wonderful that would be.

Hi Sheri. My name is Diana Marvel and my husbands Paternal line are Derrickson's.

You posted a photo in N Mae Derrkson, #50600045.

Can you please tell me who these people are in the photo and may I attach it to my tree if there is a relation.

Thank you!

RE: Accomack Co., VA
That would be fantastic if you could transfer all of the Bonniwells over to me. I'm related to all of them in one way or the other. For many of them I have obituaries, pictures of headstones, etc.. Thank you, THANK YOU!!

RE: Emmett Learey
Once again, thank you for your help! After I sent you the note I tried entering the information on one of my own memorials, and that too worked. I guess the problem only involves the edit submissions? Oh, well. . . .

Your offer of transfers is kind, but I'm not related, and I doubt that I will ever find much more information about Emmett. I am, however, in the process of creating memorials for all of his relatives in Maple Grove Cemetery, and if you think it is better to have all the memorials with one contributor, then I would be happy to shepherd his and Pearl's along. Your call. :-)

Best wishes.
