Historic Oregon Newspapers has added more newspapers. Today there are 107. Check out this site:)

April 11, 2014:

Historic Oregon Newspapers has added more newspapers. Today there are 100.

*There is a new modification/feature on FindAGrave that I've just discovered by accident and that FindAGrave did not individually notify contributors about. Please check out this feature because when it works, it is a great feature:)

Go to the FindAGrave website at this link for their directions and "read everything" under "Editing and Correcting Memorial Information".

and also look under this title in the directions: "What if I suggest a correction and the contributor doesn't respond?"

On another subject:
*Recently I received an email from another contributor who told me of finding stories in Hawaiian newspapers for his relative on the Library of Congress - Chronicling America - Historic American Newspapers website. His relative was my memorial in Oahu Cemetery in Honolulu. So I searched the Library of Congress website and found numerous articles for his relative in newspapers in Hawaii and I also found numerous articles in Tennessee newspapers where I am working on a family tree for a friend. Here is the link to the Library of Congress site:

July 14, 2013:
I am currently working on a project that you might be interested in. I am searching Historic Oregon Newspapers and the Grant County News (in particular), Canyon City, Oregon (1879-1908) online for marriages, births, deaths/obits, and stories of interest and putting them on FindAGrave memorials and sometimes creating new memorials. These old newspapers are frequently difficult to read and therefore the news clips may be difficult, but not impossible, to read. There are approximately 50 newspapers on this website (70 newspapers as of July 2013 so 20 more have been added) and they seemed to share news stories probably because some of the newspapers were owned by the same person. There is so much history "hiding" in these old newspapers - you would be amazed! If you want to search yourself - go to this link:

"The Historical Oregonian (newspaper) 1861-1987" is also a good place to search and is free "if" you live in Clackamas, Washington, or Multnomah Counties in Oregon. You have to go to the Multnomah County Library website and sign up. Or you can request a librarian do a search for you or you may need to get a library card to sign up.

Here is a link to the California Digital Newspaper Collection which is free but you have to sign up:

Please DON'T use the Virtual Flowers feature to post corrections as I get no notice when a VF is posted and therefore can't add or make corrections. Use the VFs only for tributes and condolences as per F.A.G. guidelines.


When you photograph in a cemetery, please take photos of the cemetery entrance and a picturesque view(s) of the cemetery in the event the home page for the cemetery does not have a photo(s) of the cemetery. Then you can post your photo(s) to the home page. ALSO, please don't take photos looking down on a headstone unless there is engraving on top of the headstone. If possible, squat to take a photo as it will be a much better photo.

I am willing to consider transfering ownership to you if you have a family member among my records. PLEASE use the "Edit" tab on the memorial you want transferred and then "Suggest any other correction…". This is the "correct way" to request a transfer. I may not transfer to you if the number of memorials that you manage is significantly greater than the number that you have contributed OR if you are only working on your own family and not contributing to the FAG community as a whole.

NOTICE: If you want to use any of my photos that I have posted on FAG you are welcome to do so as long as it is for genealogical research and is neither immoral or illegal! Please give me credit for my own photos if you post them in your family tree, etc. Thanks.

I liked going to cemeteries as a child, looking at headstones and listening to my relatives talk about deceased family members. Most years, I went with my grandparents, Arch and Manila Jones, to the Monument Cemetery, Grant County, Oregon which was a weed patch except for Memorial Day when family would get together and bring flowers and clean off the graves and visit.

I hope to help others by posting memorials and photos of pioneer cemeteries in Central and Eastern Oregon and the Willamette Valley, Oregon.

RE: Vera Pols
You are very welcome. The Pols grave stone was so attractive. There was a Bible verse on the reverse side, although it didn't photograph as well as we had hoped it would.

RE: Cooney Family
Thank you for making the corrections. Since the information was already posted, by definition it needed to be a correction so I posted on

•Suggest any other correction or addition

I should have clicked on each person and item in error but I thought it would be easier for you to see the errors as a group. It was my error not to do each error individually. I am sorry.

RE: William Hasbrouck
It appears that William's father was Daniel Henry, his grandfather was also Daniel Henry. The second Daniel Henry was a brother of my 2x great grandfahter, Jacob.
Their father was Josaphat Hasbrouck. He was married to Ida Schoonmaker. Ida is buried in Iowa but Josaphat just kind of disappears after Jacob is born in 1845. There are a few trees on that show a death date for him but not one of those contributors can tell me where the death occurred or where they got their info other than saying they "found it on another tree". I am hoping to find a descendant who can tell me something definite about what happened to Josaphat.

RE: Esther Davis's mother
Sorry, Esther Davis mother was Anna Isabelle Shultz Davis. Anna Isabelle Shultz's mother was Emma Laughlin Shultz Gilmore. And Emma Shultz Gilmore is buried next to Jacob Shultz in the Gresham Pioneer Cemetery.
