Growing up I was brought up on old stories, this website allows me to preserve a few memories. There's no competition, or any reason I have the need to be in charge of someone grave, that was entered by me or transferred by you.
It's all just simply for the record of someone I may have known, or was acquainted with or may have a family connection that I think deserves to have a small memory left behind about them. How did I get interested? I got interested in compiling or doing research about family history in 1995 – I did most of the research by writing letters, contacting people and connecting the dots. Then about year 2000 the computer genealogy information started to take over and I gradually lost interest.
It was a serious hobby, I enjoyed writing letters and receiving letters, then computer information became a little demanding buy this or enter that and push a button – zoom were all related. From some people, this started arguments on which information was whose, or they know more about something more about something that added up to exactly what was already finished and so gave it up. It wasn't all bad I did make some “new connection” that really did know and shared respectfully and it gave me a lot positive family information, I don't think I would have got any other way.
I'm not in this to compete, or prove anything. Nine times - out ten the – there record or obituary is already written. But if I get that 1% to add something, I do because, I recognized that person and try to add what I believe is the right edit to make so it will connect and make the memorial of the person a memory, not a findagrave statistic for my personnel archive. And for those who just add half dated information with just a name, if it can be used good – if it’s for you to boost your total of graves added … I don’t really like it but , there’s nothing that can be done about.
If anyone has anything you need to contact me about please do. I haven't written any promises in here, but I will give what you have to say real consideration. Usually you're right, give me a little time and then a correction can be made.. Have nice day and thanks for contacting me

Respectfully Frank.W
