My wife, Sheila, and I started doing genealogy about '97 and in the process, began spending a lot of time in cemeteries. On most vacations, in addition to visiting our daughter and her family who live out of state, we spend a good part of our trips doing genealogy research and trudging through cemeteries. This research has taken us to some really remote cemeteries from South Texas to Kentucky, Kansas, New Mexico and several places in our home state of Arizona. We got involved with and addicted to findagrave in October of '06 and immediately went headlong into it.|
Our main goal with findagrave is, first and foremost, accuracy. Genealogy is difficult enough without any more errors being created in the quest for numbers on the contributor's page with findagrave.
One feature with findagrave that we really enjoy is the Photo Request. We really enjoy being able to go find and photograph a headstone or headstones for someone who could possible never get the opportunity to visit the particular cemetery in person and take a photograph of the headstone themselves. We suggest that if possible, fulfill photo requests for people and while there taking the one or two photos they requested, take some of the surrounding headstones if you think there is any possibility of a connection. Then email the additional photos to the person making the photo request.
If you find any errors, would like a photo or interment added or relatives linked or a bio added, please feel free to email us with the information and we will be happy to correct the error, or do whatever else we can to help you with on the memorial. Please do this through the 'suggest a correction or provide additional information' link by clicking on 'Edit' tab at top right of memorial.
Do not post photos of a birth or death certificate, obit or any other type of document on any of my memorials. To have an open certificate photo is disrespectful I feel and it ruins the looks of a memorial. If you find an online certificate and want it posted, let me know and I'll link to it. Do this through the Edit tab explained above and be sure to include the link to the certificate.

MESA, Nov. 12—Mr. and Mrs. Arthur Jameson have been notified by the war department of the death of their son, Lt. Arthur E. (Jimmy) Jameson, who had served in the Southwest Pacific War theater for
Lieutenant Jameson, his parents were informed, died October 21 from injuries received in an accidental shell explosion October 16.
Born in Douglas and reared in Safford, Lieutenant Jameson was a graduate of Gila Junior College at Thatcher and attended the University of Arizona at Tucson two years before his enlistment. Also, before he entered the army, he was for a time associated in business with his father in operation of the Big Six store at Thatcher, a business which now has become the Jameson Tractor and Equipment Company at Safford.
Lieutenant Jameson enlisted March 31, 1941, and received his first training at Camp Roberts, Calif. He was graduated as a second lieutenant from the officer's training school at Fort Benning, Ga, on his 27th birthday, November 12, 1942.
His parents were informed that Lieutenant Jameson was buried with military honors and that his grave has been marked for transfer to the United States at the end of the war.

I found a partial DOB for your #89471202, my paternal Grandfather's brother: he was born about 1852 in Virginia according to Meacham's History.
Merritt Island, Florida
I think this is my great grandmother's brother. Is there any other information on Elmer L Jones that you can find to confirm if his parents were Clarence Elmer Jones and Elizabeth Belle Adler?

Those pictures are absolutely perfect! I am a stickler when it comes to photographing headstones for the most part and always try to get the best photograph and you really did and do a wonderful job!
I was in AZ recently but wasn't able to make it to Pima. My Grandmother has been wanting a photograph of Rosetta's headstone and I felt to horrible I was unable to get it for her but was so excited to see you had made a memorial for her and even included wonderful photographs! Thank you so much!

I have no idea how this site works - but I see you added my great grandmother's information - which is the same information I have on her. Recently a distant relative told me that her date of birth is incorrect. I don't know how to find more concrete information on her date of birth. I was also told by my mom, who was really close to her, that she was an identical twin to Iva Fox - but I am also being told that isn't correct. Does anyone know how I would find out this information? My mom passed away 10 years ago.
Hello Mike and Sheila! I am delighted to see that you have posted a memorial for a distant family member and would like to know if I could use the photographs you have taken for personal use on a private family page? The memorial is #18326952, Rosetta Bull Thurston. Thanks!
