|Bio and Links|
I have always been interested in family history, asking questions since I was a little girl. I took a genealogy class at church, and that was when my life changed forever. I was introduced to the computer, and the internet.|
I have found people I didn't know. I found out their life stories, some of which really surprised and at times shocked me. I have also found living cousins who share my passion or a better word now is addiction.
I have also met some wonderful friends.
But, with the good comes the bad. I have also met some really mean people too. And, in this wonderful business of searching out and preserving our family history,this makes me sad.
I do want to point out, that I appreciate all of the volunteers who have created these memorials, and the volunteers who take and post photos on this site. As in anything worthwhile, it really does take a village. We cannot do all of this alone.
With that said, I am not a "collector" of memorials, of people I am not in some way related to, or do not know. I only want to manage family, which includes extensions of my family. I am still fairly new on this site, and I am learning through trial and error to make sure my memorials are correct. If I have a duplicate, it was NOT created on purpose. If I am aware of one, I try to rectify that, and ask for cooperation, not a power struggle over "ownership". To me, that is either silly, or selfish. I also don't need anyone to lecture me. I am an adult. I have reasonable thinking abilities, and I am willing to work with anyone if approached in a respectful, and courteous manner.
I understand the "guidelines" of Find-A-Grave, for direct family lines, and transfers. This should also include our spouses family. It is silly to me that we have to have two separate accounts to achieve the same goal.
I personally feel that family memorials should be willingly and lovingly transferred to family members. We are the ones who truly care about them.
I do not need to "Own" all of them,but I do want them to be as correct as possible, therefore,I have done a lot of edit requests.
I always leave a flower on their memorials, out of love, respect, and as a reminder that I was there to provide correct information and family links.
If I can be of help to anyone, please ask.

Hello!! I just completed the photo request. So glad I could help! Best wishes with your research! Tina
|Tamie Dehler||RE: John A. Bolin Sr.|
I have no idea where I got that information. Someone must have sent me an edit and I accepted it. If it is incorrect, I will gladly remove it.

Sure, not a problem! Thanks!
|Mariah, Joe & Connie||Carl E Jones|
Found Carl in Evergreen Cemetery, Colorado Springs. Linked to parents
|Calmly Searching||RE: Katherine Kingery|
I am trying to contact the cemetery office. They are out of town until after the 30th. I will call again at that time to get what information I can about her burial.
Many times on a death certificate, a grave location is stated, then later the family changes their minds.
Not sure what to tell you about the different death dates. Either it is not the same person, or someone did not record the right facts, or possible whoever engraved the stone made a mistake.
I will let you know when I know.

I have been working for the Jones Historical Society on the Jones IOOF Cemetery and they, like many in a small town have had numerous people over the years taking care of the records. One lady who is a member of the society is 101 years old and she said her dad kept them at one time, had them in his truck on main street and someone stole his truck, and the records. Possibly they had a duplicate or they would really have a mess.
|Kelli Lincoln||RE: Charlotte Jean Olson|
You're welcome! No, I don't know the relationship - I was just fulfilling the request while vacationing in the area, and I noticed that although Charlotte and Stanley were obviously placed together, there wasn't a request for him as well; I wondered if maybe this finding might be helpful (or if it might uncover a family mystery!) so I thought I'd add the 2nd photo. I hope you figure it out! :)

Ms White -
My aunt, Gertrude Turner, was married to a Mr. Elmer Bennett. I'm afraid one of us has a crossed connection, but I'm not sure...
