Historic Oregon Newspapers has added more newspapers. Today there are 100.
*There is a new modification/feature on FindAGrave that I've just discovered by accident and that FindAGrave did not individually notify contributors about. Please check out this feature because when it works, it is a great feature:)
Go to the FindAGrave website at this link for their directions and "read everything" under "Editing and Correcting Memorial Information".
and also look under this title in the directions: "What if I suggest a correction and the contributor doesn't respond?"
On another subject:
*Recently I received an email from another contributor who told me of finding stories in Hawaiian newspapers for his relative on the Library of Congress - Chronicling America - Historic American Newspapers website. His relative was my memorial in Oahu Cemetery in Honolulu. So I searched the Library of Congress website and found numerous articles for his relative in newspapers in Hawaii and I also found numerous articles in Tennessee newspapers where I am working on a family tree for a friend. Here is the link to the Library of Congress site:

I am currently working on a project that you might be interested in. I am searching Historic Oregon Newspapers and the Grant County News (in particular), Canyon City, Oregon (1879-1908) online for marriages, births, deaths/obits, and stories of interest and putting them on FindAGrave memorials and sometimes creating new memorials. These old newspapers are frequently difficult to read and therefore the news clips may be difficult, but not impossible, to read. There are approximately 50 newspapers on this website (70 newspapers as of July 2013 so 20 more have been added) and they seemed to share news stories probably because some of the newspapers were owned by the same person. There is so much history "hiding" in these old newspapers - you would be amazed! If you want to search yourself - go to this link:
"The Historical Oregonian (newspaper) 1861-1987" is also a good place to search and is free "if" you live in Clackamas, Washington, or Multnomah Counties in Oregon. You have to go to the Multnomah County Library website and sign up. Or you can request a librarian do a search for you or you may need to get a library card to sign up.
Here is a link to the California Digital Newspaper Collection which is free but you have to sign up:
Please DON'T use the Virtual Flowers feature to post corrections as I get no notice when a VF is posted and therefore can't add or make corrections. Use the VFs only for tributes and condolences as per F.A.G. guidelines.
PLEASE PLEASE ADD PHOTOS TO MEMORIALS. THIS IS VERY IMPORTANT AS YOU MAY HAVE THE ONLY EXISTING PHOTOS!!!
When you photograph in a cemetery, please take photos of the cemetery entrance and a picturesque view(s) of the cemetery in the event the home page for the cemetery does not have a photo(s) of the cemetery. Then you can post your photo(s) to the home page. ALSO, please don't take photos looking down on a headstone unless there is engraving on top of the headstone. If possible, squat to take a photo as it will be a much better photo.
I am willing to consider transfering ownership to you if you have a family member among my records. PLEASE use the "Edit" tab on the memorial you want transferred and then "Suggest any other correction…". This is the "correct way" to request a transfer. I may not transfer to you if the number of memorials that you manage is significantly greater than the number that you have contributed OR if you are only working on your own family and not contributing to the FAG community as a whole.
NOTICE: If you want to use any of my photos that I have posted on FAG you are welcome to do so as long as it is for genealogical research and is neither immoral or illegal! Please give me credit for my own photos if you post them in your family tree, etc. Thanks.
I liked going to cemeteries as a child, looking at headstones and listening to my relatives talk about deceased family members. Most years, I went with my grandparents, Arch and Manila Jones, to the Monument Cemetery, Grant County, Oregon which was a weed patch except for Memorial Day when family would get together and bring flowers and clean off the graves and visit.
I hope to help others by posting memorials and photos of pioneer cemeteries in Central and Eastern Oregon and the Willamette Valley, Oregon.

|Georgie Ann Hankins||RE: Mary Dodge|
Thank you for the information. I love history and the migration of their travels. I will forward the info you sent me onto Beau, hoping his address is still the same.
I've been reading some of Louis L'Amour western stories in his West of Dodge and it seems I have a very close writing skill of telling stories.
So lastnight I began a western story of my own to see where it would go. Instead of just making up one the story of Charles B. Feast being shot and killed in Burns Oregon Christmas Day came out of me.I manage his grave and the dates can be verified but I could not find a newspaper clipping regarding the incident. A true story passed down from family. I did not realize I knew more than I did until I began the story. However, the ending had no conclusion and I am in the process of researching the sheriff logs from Dodge City from those days as I have learned when a sherrif travels after his bad guys all his actions were recorded in a book. It will be interesting to see if I can find any data regarding this matter. This Sherrif Shugrue also stalked and killed another Hankins in our family tree. I plan on looking into that story as well.
Anyway, thank you for your help in helping me help someone else.

Thank you so very much for allowing me to manage his memorial.
Thank you for ALL the work you do contributing to find a grave.

Rhodes Mead and Priscilla Newton/Newlon also had a daughter, Priscilla Mead. She married James Elias Sturgell/Sturgeon May 4, 1823, Floyd County, Kentucky. James and Priscilla were my 4xs great grandparents.
|Belva||Goose Creek Cemetery|
I was asked to take a couple of photos for a relative in this cemetery and had never been there before. Did not think to check findagrave to see if it was documented and took photos of all the headstones. They are high resolution and most very clear, so if anyone asks about better photos, I have saved them. Added a few new ones to the site.

|Dennis Sullens||RE: Rea Geinger|
Zella Edith (Johnson) Gienger remained Archie Giengers wife until his death.
Edith (Martin) Riggs, Rea's 2nd and last wife was Rea Vernon Gienger's widow when he died in 1964. Edith signed Rea's Death Certificate. No 3rd wife.
|Lynette Holliday ||Edmiston in Tilden, Il cemetery|
I saw you were requesting photos for Harmon (1820-1834) and John (1829-1843) Edmiston. Can you give me an idea of their relatives. I have access to the old Tilden cemetery records as my husband is the current cemetery commissioner. I have not been able to find them yet but would be happy to continue to keep looking with a little more info.
|Dennis Sullens||RE: Rea Geinger|
Please don't forget, in addition to Rea Vernon Gienger, there is the correction of Zella Edith (Johnson) Gienger, who is NOT Rea's 2nd wife. Edith (Martin) Riggs is Rea's 2nd wife. I have not been able to find her findagrave memorial yet. Thank you, for all the loving efforts for our deceased relatives. For we are all sons and daughters of Adam,ancient of days, and Eve, mother of all living.
