|Bio and Links|
99% of my grave hunting is in locations where I am not related to anyone. If someone I am managing is related to you, tell me the connection and ask for the transfer. Ask for all I have of a certain Surname if you want. I'm here to find them...managing them is, heh, just more work. And if I come across additional relatives to someone I transferred in the past, you'll be getting them without even asking.|
I am not a numbers guy. The ultimate would be to be able give away 9 out of 10 of my entries...to people related to those folks. I take a lot of photos in the summer...and then make entries all winter long. I do this to help family members that will never come to see the stones near me or, even better, had no idea where that relative was interred at all.
While I do this to have fun and learn about the locals...I have 2 pet peeves.
1. Burial Unknown. YAY...you found an obituary. This is Find A Grave...not find Some Info. A picture leads to an entry and I always check THAT cemeetery to see if the person is already there. I'm not looking thru all of the names of folks nobody has a clue where they are. Burial Unknowns are good for 30 days. After that MY entry is officially 'first'.
That leads me to the next pet peeve...
2. Plunking a person in a cemetery 'in the area'. If I find things like that I copy the info of the plunked memorial and paste it into the caption of MY gravestone photo on MY memorial. Then wait until someone MOVES their memorial to the correct cemetery...and try to tell me theirs was there the entire time.
Note: I consider any photo I post online to be Public Domain. You can use them where you like, just don't claim them as your own. Give credit (if at all) where it is due.
Now....back to the field of stones...

Appreciate your help. I also did not have who he was married to. Thinking it is Rozella, even tho they are not tied together & I cannot read her stone. Would you happen to have a close up of the stones?
