I am a bit of a fan of history and I love the history you find in cemeteries. My favorites are the old pioneer cemeteries of the west. |
For those of you that are looking for forgotten relatives, loved ones, friends and family, I just want to say to you that I do what I do here on Find A Grave for you. No one should be forgotten! We all may not be rich, or powerful, or have invented great things but we all made a difference in some way and we deserve to be remembered for the differences we made. If just by creating a memorial page I feel that I have done something to remember that person and that they did live and that they did matter.
The information on the memorials that I have added is only as good as the information I had to work with from the beginning. I am sure that there are many mistakes and I will correct every one that I can but if fellow contributor finds something wrong that still needs to be corrected, please don't hesitate to let me know.
Transfers: If you are interested, just ask! I am not hung up on the findagrave.com policies, all that is important to me is that you are better able to add to the memorial than I am. You don't have to be directly related, just willing and able to make the page better.
To all the Find A Grave photographers out there: if you have a picture to post that is better than one that I have posted, please do and then let me know. If I agree, I will gladly remove mine in order to avoid cluttering up the memorial page.
Someday I know I'll have my own headstone and if I am lucky enough, this is the epitaph that will be on it:
The Measure of a Man
Not "How did he die?"
But, "How did he live?"
Not "What did he gain?"
But, "What did he give?"
These are the units
to measure the worth
of a man, as a man,
regardless of birth.
Not "What was his station?
But, "Had he a heart?"
And "How did he play
his God given part?"
Was he ever ready
with a word of good cheer,
to bring back a smile,
to banish a tear?'
Not "What was his church?"
Nor "What was his creed?"
But, "Had he befriended
those really in need?"
Not "What did the sketch
in the newspaper say?"
But "How many were sorry
when he passed away!"
If you're still reading, maybe you'd like to stop by and say Hi! to very special friend. I lost her eight years ago but she is still missed everyday, Belle West.
I found some great information on how to take a picture of a headstone. I am passing this site along because I feel that a good, clear picture is always what the viewer wants. Not something that is just good enough. The site is How To Get Great Photos For FindAGrave.

You had posted a picture of Wyman' marker to memorial 107792679. This is a duplicate of my earlier memorial at 105615929. I've asked her to remove her memorial.
Can you move the picture of Wyman and Helen's marker on 107792679 to 105615929
Would appreciate it very much

You posted some nice looking pictures on a memorial for a distant cousin of mine, Levi R Newhart # 35027811. May I copy them and any others I might find? I'd like to add them to my ancestry.com tree.
I will give you credit and I do not profit and will never profit from these pictures.
Thanks for all you have done. You've been busy serving others.

Many thanks for transferring Daniel's memorial; this has enabled me to link him to his parents.
