You Know You're An Addicted Genealogist When:
* When you brake for libraries.
* If you get locked in a library overnight and you never even notice.
* When you hyperventilate at the sight of an old cemetery.
* If you'd rather browse in a cemetery than a shopping mall.
* When you think every home should have a microfilm reader.
* If you'd rather read census schedules than a good book.
* When you know every town clerk in your state by name.
* If town clerks lock the doors when they see you coming.
* When you are more interested in what happened in 1895 than 1995.
* If you store your clothes under the bed and your closet is carefully stacked with notebooks and journals.
* When Mitchel, Davis, and Tenney are household names, but you can't remember what you call your dog.
* If you can pinpoint Harrietsham, Hawkhurst, Kent on a map of England, but can't locate Topeka, Kansas.
* When all your correspondence begins.......... "Dear Cousin."
* If you've traced every one of your ancestral lines back to Adam and Eve, have it fully documented, and still don't want to quit.

I spend a lot of time into creating each memorial. I do so because everyone has a story. Each memorial that I create is more than just a name or a number. They have a family, present and past. I attempt to research every individual, by looking up background information in the local library (4 days a week) and on ancestry.com.
Not every listing requested will be transferred. My main goal is to honor the person. I research genealogy on a daily basis and often find more things to add, along with finding other family members to connect together. Each transfer request will be considered with the utmost personal respect.
I am happy to add information someone sends to me promptly to any of the memorials. I want each memorial to reflect accurate information and will gladly make corrections if I am in error.
To request a transfer, please use SAC (Suggest A Correction) and provide your relation to the person.
To send material to add to a page, just click the EDIT button on the top right of the page then use the SAC (Suggest A Correction).
All contributions are greatly appreciated.

I have sent several addition edits and some links that would be helpful. I also posted some photos on the memorials. The additional information was gleaned from death certificates. If you have a problem with me posting photos please let me know and I will remove. I am trying to update and complete the current listing for this cemetery.
|Nikki Stevens Soppelsa||RE: Comfort|
I do apologize for not having responded to you to your nice message. I have continued my cemetery photos but have only recently returned to Find A Grave to do a bit on my own family and perhaps more.
I am also hoping to get back to my 'sofa' to capture another season. ;-)) I thank you so for appreciating. You can see my collage art on NikkiSoppelsa.blogspot.com
The most recent piece for A Book About Death~Australia exhibit shows what I do with my cemetery photos and collection of cabinet photos.
Thanks again for lovely comments...
|Brian Presley||Mary Rose Starke memorial|
Thank you for visiting Mary Rose's grave site memorial and leaving a flower. That was very kind of you.

I asked findagrave to move George A Bettcher from Westlawn to Eastlawn Cemetery, which is where he is buried. He has been moved to the correct cemetery and I uploaded the photos I took of his headstone, military marker and the inscription for him on the Bettcher family monument.

I not as back as put clothes under my bed. I have a filing system, four drawers and thinking of more. The four sides of the family is huge, my family note book is over stuffed.
My husband loves to go with me for photos, then we walk and look for the most interesting.

I wanted to thank you for adding my baby girls memorial. I stumbled upon it while looking for something else and it was bittersweet to see it. Thank you for all you do.
