Bio and Links
Bio Photo I have been researching genealogy since August, 1989. I have traced some of my family back to England and France/Germany. My husband's family back to the East Coast, but not sure where they came from..
I have 4 children, 11 grandchildren and 8 gr-grandchildren.
I volunteer at the local genealogy library on Monday afternoons.
I very much love putting up Memorials for loved ones. I also add others when I find an obit I can use for the dates. This is such a great site and I meet so many nice people.

(Dear Ancestor
Your tombstone stands among the rest neglected and alone. The name and date are chiselled out on polished, marbled stone.

It reaches out to all who care; It is too late to mourn. You did not know that I exist; you died and I was born. Yet each of us are cells of you in flesh, in blood, in bone.

Our blood contracts and beats a pulse; entirely not our own. Dear Ancestor, the place you filled one hundred years ago spreads out among the ones you left who would have loved you so. I wonder if you lived and loved, I wonder if you knew that someday I would find this spot, and come to visit you. )

Denzel Hale
I was updating my family tree and came across the posting of my Dad's obituary. His name was misspelled, and I wanted to correct it. It should be Denzel Eugene Hale. I am his oldest child, Dottie.

Homer Sisson memorial page
I would be the great grand daughter of William Posey Sisson and his first wife Lillie Virginia Grissom. I saw that you created a memorial page for his son, Homer Sisson--thank you so much!
Are you related? I am trying to find "Sisson" relatives who might have photos and stories of our mutual ancestors.
Hope to hear from you soon.
And again thank you for creating the memorial page. It really means a lot to me.

Adding Obituaries
Refer to your Frequently Asked Questions in your Contributors Tools. I take the important info from the obits you submitt and add them to comply with the below info. Thanks, Winnette

Can I add an obituary to my interment listing?

You should not copy obituary notices from newspapers (or from funeral home notices or web sites) to an individual's memorial record unless you have permission from the newspaper to do so or you are the author of the obituary. Some obituaries that were published in 1922 or earlier are now in the public domain. In general, obituaries in newspapers are submitted by the family with assistance from the funeral home. If the obituary is added to the memorial record, it should list the newspaper and date the obit was printed for example "Published in the Hattiesburg American, Hattiesburg, Mississippi, Internet Edition, April 11, 2007". Please do not include the names of living or surviving relatives in the biography, unless you have their permission. If you do not have permission to copy an obituary to a memorial, you may put a note stating the name of the newspaper and the date the obituary was published.
Please do NOT add photographs from obituary notices (unless you, personally took the photo), as they are protected by copyright law. Find A Grave reserves the right to remove obituary notices and photographs from memorial records. Similarly, you may NOT scan an obituary and add it as a photograph to a memorial record.
Obituaries for "famous" individuals are usually written by newspaper staff and can not be posted to Find A Grave as the newspaper company owns that copyright.
Please do not include website addresses that may be listed in the obituary as they usually expire within a year after the obituary is printed. [Top]
