Bio and Links
Bio Photo This is a great way to show your support and appreciation for the information already on Find A Grave. Get out and volunteer to take some photos's. Photo volunteering has helped me find, as a new member, different ideas on how to search for my own elusive ancestors.

I am currently researching the Dumas, McEntyre, Layfield, Hathcock & Autrey name from St Clair, County Alabama.
The Hathcock line is also from Cullmann
Alabama, too.
Found recently are McEntyre's in Gordon County & Habersham County, Ga and Etowah County Al .. The McEntyre's were also in Rutherford County N.C.
The Dumas family in Hill County, Texas are brother's and sister's of William Andrew Dumas. I see over and over again Will is missing from Ancestry.com family trees.
In Alabama , the Spinks of Hokes Bluff are of interest.
If photo's and/or any information are not correct please let me know. However, I will work only on requested photo's.
Please add any nicknames, maiden names, or if they had a military marker. Some of the larger cemeteries are without any records and any added information is always helpful. If you do not add information to the request it may not appear on the list when we search. It will only show on the main page and if my wi-fi does not work, I cannot see the main page at the cemetery.

Any transfer requested is available unless it is in my family. I would also like to know the connection. This is just to make sure you are not
a commercial entity.

On my managed memorials, please no recent death certificates attached or word for word obits as it could unknowingly violate privacy laws.

Please acknowledge all the volunteers with each request. If you want the entire plot ask for it. It saves resources and time and gives credit where credit is due. Some researcher's only want the one photo. It's a fantastic volunteer system to have as a resource.

Shame and double shame to the number hoarders who do not transfer.You know who you are. There is a higher power than your ego. I have people who will not transfer because they do not want their work to be incomplete. Where are their own ancestors?

My goal is not thousands of records. If in the future someones relative wants to look up a record. I would want them to see correct information. The information from photo's to be readable. Links to correct family members and at least enough research to show the family members in the cemetery. For me, just a name on a piece of paper would be a real disappointment

Note: All photo's are made with a Canon Rebel and edited with Adobe Photoshop. I try to enhance unreadable markers when possible. In these cases the photo is not noted especially for quality, but for information purposes.

Note: Ask for permission to copy any photo.

Thank you for transferring Rosa Gaulding's memorial to me. I plan on adding more to her memorial in the next few days. Thank you for taking the time to create this memorial and for being generous enough to transfer Rosa over to family.

Blessings and hugs,

Jenny

Hi, Gina:

I was wondering if you transfer management of M.O. & Clara Pierce. These are my husband's grandparents. I have several things that I would like to add to their memorial. I really appreciate that you have taken the time to photograph and list my husband's relative.
Thank you in advance,

Cousins?
Hi, Gina!
I've found where we appear to have a common ancestor. I'm very new (only 2 days doing this), so I'm not sure how to contact you privately to go into more detail how we are related.
Help??

hello!

I found you posted a flower on a page that I was working on the bio for a co-FAGer. Anyway, I read your bio and loved what you said about the folks that hoard memorials and are in it for the numbers.

Do they not know that they will always have the record of the ones they create??? I have many classmaes and friends memorials I am adding bios for with photos and am always so appreciative when someone transfers without following specific Find A Grave guidelines. It leaves a story for the future.

Anyway, I just wanted to drop by and say hello.
I too am a volunteer photographer.

Have a great today and tomorrow.
Connie

The photo you placed on this memorial doesn't go here. The correct memorial is Memorial# 22760094.

RE: Sarah Hobbs Thomasson Memorial
Hi Gina, I used the edit tool already. Since it didn't come across the first time I just did it again. The fifth photo does not belong in this memorial.

Sarah Hobbs Thomasson Memorial
Hi Gina,
I'm reasearching my Thomason line which includes Garrison and Sarah Hobbs Thomasson. Thank you for adding photos to Sarah Hobb Thomason's Memorial! The last photo displayed is of Sarah Spruill's marker. Do these two Sarahs share a marker? I didn't find a Memorial for Sarah Spruill in this cemetery.
Thanks in advance Gina for your help on this and all the other photos you have taken. We appreciate it.
