Bio and Links
Bio Photo I have been doing genealogy work for about 20 years with brief intervals of inactivity when my life took different turns. I love going to all the old cemeteries in South Georgia marveling at some of the old tombstones (some are quite elaborate and expensive even for that period of time) and dreaming about how our ancestors lived. Since my husband and I shared so many ancestors (including at least three great-great-great grandfathers), it was an easy task getting information about our "kinfolk". When my husband of nearly 40 years died in 2002 my enthusiasm for genealogy waned somewhat and I did little research for several years. I found the FindAGrave website about six months ago and entered a few memorials. I absolutely love entering memorials for so many of the South Georgia cemeteries which I have helped "survey" over the years thus enabling so many people access to this information. I especially like being able to link families and consider this one of the most important features of FindAGrave. I believe when entering genealogy information one should always be open to criticism in order to get information as accurate as possible -- especially when it is posted on the internet for so many thousands of people to view. Accuracy should be the #1 consideration for all genealogists and I will always strive for perfection.

Hello Barbara,

Thank you for all your contributions to this site!

I'm trying to get my family transferred to me, but I'm unsure if we share this relative or not.

Lillie Kirkland Spivey is my Great Grandmother, if this is not a shared relative between us would you mind transferring her to me.

Thank you for your time!
