Bio and Links
My husband and I have been researching our families for over ten years. Most of this was done the old fashioned way by visiting archives, libraries, courthouses, elderly relatives etc. When we began there was nothing available on the internet, not even census records.

The way we did it was great fun. But now it is much easier. There is so much on the internet --definitely not everything-- but a lot. Since discovering Find-a-Grave, I was able to locate a couple of people in my own line that I had not previously managed to find. Now I want to help others by being involved in the project of Find-a-Grave.

I try to take good pictures but sometimes because of the conditions, etc. they do not come out as I would like. If anyone gets a better picture than I have put up, just let me know and I will remove mine.

Wiliam G Bell
I think I got the cemetery corrected for William G Bell and it shows him added to the main list of Wallace Cemetery in DeSoto Parish. So, I think you can ask findagrave to delete the Wallace Cemetery in DeSoto Parish that I created by mistake and only has William G Bell listed. I corrected all the info on my ancestry record for him also. I'm not sure how long it takes for ancestry to record the change. I had not added the findagrave record to my ancestry record of him yet and I wanted to add the findagrave record onto my ancestry record. So I did a search on William G Bell from the hints section and it shows a findagrave record still listed wrong in St John the Baptist Parish. I don't know how to correct that on ancestry search. I really don't want to leave my mistake out there to confuse other researchers. Can you help me with this or do I need to contact ancestry to help me? Thanks again for your diligence in keeping the research documentation correct.

William G Bell
I received your email suggestion to change my pic and info for William G Bell in Wallace Cemetery to DeSoto Parish just south of Shreveport. My pic was listed in Wallace Cemetery in Saint John the Baptist Parish in error. So Sorry for the mistake on my part. I changed the record to reflect the correct cemetery, but it didn't add it to the main list of those buried at that cemetery. It made another list with only William G Bell. I am new to genealogy and all the websites like findagrave, so I am not sure how to get William Bell onto the main list at that cemetery. Can you help me with this so I have it done correctly for future searches by others? Once I get this done, I need to update my printed notebook to reflect the correction. Thank you for your diligence in keeping the records correct. I am a member of a local genealogy club and am serious about correct information and documentation. This must have been a late night, blurry eyed oversight.

Re: James Guidroz and Laurentine Guidroz
Hi Louise,

Thanks for posting the memorials for my grandparents James J. Guidroz and Laurentine Guidry Guidroz. I have quite a few updates to post to them and links to other relatives and would like for you to transfer them to me. Thanks again,

Thank you for your corrections for Mae and her husband, I have now made them accurate. You mentioned Mae's obit, I have not seen that, if you have a copy of it would you send it to my email address? Would appreciate that very much.
