Calling all Find-a-Gravers from West Texas: I've started a Facebook page titled WEST TEXAS FIND A GRAVE. This is mostly for the folks in my area but is an open group and is open to all. It's not a gripe session about the site but should be used to help with what cemeteries need to be surveyed or photographed. Feel free to check it out.|
I'll be listing as many cemeteries in the Lubbock, Texas area as possible. I would like to meet with other members in Lubbock. Please feel free to get in touch with me and i'll try to answer any questions that i can.
I've noticed a trend lately that should be addressed. Please do not add Death Certificates to my memorials. This may be a good source of information but I feel it is out of place on memorials. You can request a tranfer of ownership if you feel the need to post a Death Certificate.
Also on the subject of Death Certificates, please be aware of the pitfalls of taking this information as absolute. There has been some discussion on this topic in the Forums. Use care when reading this data. The location given as the place of burial is not always the correct name of that cemetery. It may only be the city where the person was taken. I've seen too many times where an incorrect listing is added unnecessarily by folks unfamiliar with the location of burial. Many cemeteries have changed names or ownership over the years. Please double check the county listing before adding a new cemetery. You might save yourself a lot of time and trouble.
I'm more than glad to make any correction, update or transfers that pass my way. Please use the Edit (Suggest a Correction) tab on the memorials, as this makes things go faster and easier for me.
Also, any changes that are sent to me, I take at face value so please don't send me a list of sources that prove who the parents are or where they were born. I'm not the DAR or a school teacher who double checks for accuracy. What you send me is what I enter.
I really hate to do this, but from now on, I WILL NOT do any transfers or updates that come to me on the message board. I've had too many requests that have errors in them and this just slows everything down. Please, please please use the EDIT tabs on the memorials. This is what it was designed and set up for so please use it. Also, it has gotten to the point that I will no longer respond to transfer requests or up-date requests that are sent to me here on the Message Board or by e-mail. I will only make changes that come to me via EDIT/SUGGEST A CORRECTION. Thanks.

Thank you for the photo of Wilma's grave marker.And thank you for adding a memorial for her husband. Always assumed he was there, but was never totally sure. Thanks again for all your work.

My pleasure. I just started treking these cemeteries. I've always enjoyed walking through old cemeteries and now I've enlisted my mother. I do know that there are quite a few of them around here. Some of them are in such disrepair it just makes me sad. I'm still learning the ins and outs of this. I've just kind of been flying by the seat of my pants.:)

Thank you for the great photos. I have linked Paul to his parents. Would you please link husband and wife together and all will be complete.
Thank you so much for these photos. My youngest sister is named for Sarah Dick. I just happened to put her name in Find A Grave and was so surprised she was there, but without a photo. Now she is complete.

I live in Bonham, TX. I have been trying to fulfil a few photo requests and found this one. The cemetery listed for this memorial was a "potters field" for Fannin Co. After doing some digging I have found that there isn't a W. R. Brady in the records. There is however a W. R. Brame along with a photo of the stone.

THANK YOU for making these transfers!
|TLH||Irvin Benno photo request|
I am happy to fill your requests at Sparkman Hillcrest, but I will need a burial location in order to do so. They don't give findagrave volunteers burial locations but you could get one if you called on the phone at: 214 363 5401.
Let me know the location and I will go out there and fill it for you.

|Lyle Fulton||RE: William Sears|
You are very welcome. There are a lot of Sears graves in Kemp Cemetery. I have photographed many of them, but have not yet put them on memorials. If they interest you, check back in a couple of days and I will have added them.

You are welcome for the photo, always happy to add photos to memorial pages.
