Bio and Links
Bio Photo I do NOT research edit submitions! If you find any info on an acct I manage that you feel isn't accurate, please let me know and I will certainly look into the matter. Thank you!

I am a very active baseball mom of three school teams and travel ball team as well as concession manager and it is baseball season now! I do check in but I may not be able to fill a request or edit nearly as fast as I normally do. Please be patient as my family does come first.

I am a genealogy geek too! No surprise there! I love helping others and never mind transferring management of an acct or editing info. If I own an acct or even manage one don't be afraid to ask if you want it. Sometimes I suggest a date addition or something after taking the photo and people will transfer management of the acct to me to edit even though I am of no relation, so I am always happy to send to a family member to manage.

***I have recently taken management of a few inactive acct creators accts in order to make edits and links as I photo survey entire cemeteries. I am happy to edit info or transfer to family members. I have not accepted all their accts just select cemeteries as I photo them.

***sometimes when I post a picture from my I-pad while there at the cemetery, it posts sideways but will appear upright for me. Please let me know if I miss this so I can repost the picture. Thanks.

Anyone may use my photos for anything other than commercial purposes (unless express permission is given) or the creation of duplicate memorials on Find A Grave. You may copy and post them to other websites or use them in your family history or tree. For non-commercial uses and exempting creation of duplicate memorials my photos are gifts. It would be nice if you gave credit if you use them. North East Alabama Genealogy Society

Re: Bonnie Boyd
Thanks for the excellent gravemarker photo.

And thanks for the GPS screen shot on Bethlehem FCM Cemetery in Etowah County, Alabama. That was a genius idea to take a photo of the GPS screen. Very helpful. Thanks.

RE: Virginia Thompson
You're welcome, Maria. So sorry, no headstone yet for Virginia. I figured that was her husband. Thanks for writing me back!

Dorothy Leap
One thing I did make a note of for whatever reason were dates on Dorothy Leap. She had no marker but the years I have written down are from 1915 - 1916. I am not completely sure why I wrote that down but I thought I would share it anyway.

RE: Venora Leap 66024865
Normally I have that information but I had so many to check that day I do not think I had time to get specific plot info.

RE: #47958320
My apologies for picking up the wrong Memorial #.
The document is actually posted on Benjamin F. Jones, Sr. #115100226. Now I also realize the source is "Records of St. Clair Co. AL" by Mrs. C.P. McGuire, Sr. The Minutes of Probate Court on Aug. 20, 1872 verifies 3 generations and I am elated to find it. (Harriett M. Carter-only daughter of W.S.Jones, deceased) Thanks so much! I'm now seeking to obtain a copy of the original document. Thanks again for your speedy reply.
