Bio and Links
Bio Photo Some volunteers are going to a lot of trouble posting each edit before they approve the edit. This causes the edit to show as “no change” because the information has already been posted. The volunteer that submits the edit can no longer see the information that they wanted changed. The manager (not owner) of the memorial cannot be sure that the information is correct unless they have done the research. What is the point of posting the edit then approving? Wouldn’t time be better spent on cleaning up the memorial?

I began researching my family in about 2003. Some of the Surnames are McCraney, Williamson, Lott, Brock, Lakey, Smith, Turner and Jones. I grew up in Polk Co., TX and discovered most of my ancestors came by way of Mississippi or Alabama.

Surnames on my husband's side are Gregorcyk, Hirscy, Walker, Shives and Bluntzer.

Thanks to the people who share their information, I have been able to find an amazing amount on the Internet. The research can become addictive and never ending; there is always more to the story.

It is not my intent to offend anyone. If I have posted information that you want removed…please ask.


Thanks to Nollene Marsh, Mary Harper and others that have helped add information and links to the memorials in Polk County, Texas

RE: Dianna Cain
I remember researching her and just could not decide between Banks or Myers. I can add another note stating children's DC's suggest Myers.

Hi Virginia,

As you can see a long time ago I noted in her bio my question as to what her maiden name was - Banks or Myers. Can you provide me with documentation for your suggestion of MYERS? Thanks, it is appreciated!
