Bio and Links
Bio Photo My husband says I spend too much time in graveyards, doing genealogy and on the computer. Maybe he's right.
My favorite cemeteries are Mount Hebron in Winchester, Virginia, and Rock Creek in Washington, D. C.

- When I started contributing to Find A Grave the following was listed under FAQs:

What are your naming conventions?
Naming conventions:
Unless the legal name contains a hyphen, punctuation, including the () and /, should not be included in the memorial name. Full capitalization (ALL-CAPS) of names should not be used, whether it be surname or the full name.

- I see that they have changed their FAQs to the following:

What are your naming conventions?
Naming conventions:
Unless the legal name contains a hyphen, punctuation, including the () and /, should not be included in the memorial name. Periods are to be used after initials, as in normal English. Full capitalization (ALL-CAPS) of names should not be used, whether it be surname or the full name. Suffixes and Prefixes do not belong in any name field.

- I am adhering to what was the convention on Find A Grave when I first checked FAQs.  Rather than change over 18,000 memorials, I will stick with the original rule.

Congressional cemetery must be where you took pictures. I will send names of Mills, Montgomery & Ratrie ancestors buried there, and would love to add their bios, photos, etc. Thanks

Your volunteer service
Thank you sincerely for posting photos of my grandparents, great-grandparents and Aunt's grave marker. I really appreciate the copy of gr-grandparents' wedding certificate. This means so much to me. I had the stone erected shortly before you took the photo, and it really looks great.

Richardsville, VA, Methodist Cemetery
Not sure how to do this on first message. Hope you respond.

I interested in your connection to Emma Childs, 21 Jun 1867-13 Nov 1939, buried Richardsville, VA Methodist Cemetery. Are you a relative? I am not a relative but doing research for a dear friend. My friend also has McConchie family members buried in same Cemetery.
Know the Richardsville and Lignum area well. I was born in Culpeper Co, VA.
Regards, Cecelia in Ashburn, VA

Ethel Pearl Hunter
Audrey: I loved your bio - you sound just like me spending a lot of time taking pictures as a volunteer here in Cape Girardeau, Mo. and on the computer. I have a question for you concerning Ethel Pearl Hunter (1884-1959) at Ft. Lincoln Cemetery in Brentwood, Maryland. #19586838. Where did you get the death record for setting up her memorial page?
The grave marker did not have the full date and someone told us Maryland does not have an official death certificate or record that a person could order? Did you get the records from the cemetery there? Is there any way a person could order printed proof of death? Thank you so much for your help. Ruth Smith aka The Cemetery Lady.

Re-Assignment of Memorials
Hello Audrey,

Find below names and memorial numbers for the following Find-A-Grave records:

Florence O'Connell Mackowiak -- #20136576

Thomas J O'Connell -- #20213765

Regina O'Connell Hazel -- #20213463

John J O'Connell -- #20213772

You are listed as the "creator" of these records.

Would you consider re-assigning "ownership" to me?

I am a grandson of Regina O'Connell Hazel, and knew the individuals behind all of the above listed names. I am also the defacto family archivist and "go-to" for ancestor related info within the family, mostly by default as that I am the only one who has expressed an ongoing interest down through the decades, and have accumulated many of the family photos and records of past family members.

Joe Caldwell is my nephew, and the computer wiz who has been assisting recently in upgrading our family records on Find-A-Grave. If you are in agreement, would you kindly re-assign these above records to his Find-A-Grave account #48483776?

Kind Regards,

Scott Hazel
