Genealogy is one of my passions. I have been helped by countless volunteers and am always looking for ways to repay that generosity. Findagrave (F.A.G.) is a perfect outlet for that. Thank you, to all my fellow F.A.G. contributors, for making this site what it is :) |
This is my volunteer profile. The overwhelming majority of the memorials that I manage through the profile you are reading right now, are not my family. If you are related to anyone amongst my managed memorials, and wish to manage the memorial yourself, please send me a SAC request (last option listed) and I will most likely transfer. For my family, I have created a seperate profile (Bartran-Lee Family, #48769236) for the sole purpose of managing the memorials of my direct ancestors.
I live within walking distance from Bellerive Cemetery (fka Hiram Cemetery), and walking up and down the rows is where most of my memorials and photographs come from. Most of the grave markers in Bellerive are flat, so it's great exercise to search for someone's marker, which allows my genealogy obsession to have multiple benefits. I do avoid contact with the cemetery office as I know other F.A.G. volunteers have been charged $10 per look-up when asking for a burial location. I also try my best to respect the privacy of others I encounter there.
I want every memorial I have added to contain the most complete and accurate information available. I also strive to protect the privacy of the living. If there is not a death date apparent on a grave marker, and the individual would be younger than 110 years, I will NOT add a memorial for that person, unless I am able to locate an obituary or other documented proof that the person is deceased. Bellerive Cemetery does have a number of pre-need markers placed. If a marker contains at least one person's information with a death date, I will add a memorial for only the deceased. I will not edit the photograph to remove any living person's information.
Have fun, and be safe out there!

Thank you so much for the really nice picture. I added his birthday to the memorial. That date I didn't have before. Thanks again.

Her stone should be placed within a month. Can you add marker to her memorial. Thank you.
Thank you so much for the photo of Aunt Gustie's grave. Am I correct in that there is no headstone?
|Diane Hurst||RE: Laurie Pfeifer|
Thank you so much for looking for Laurie's marker. I was hoping enough time had passed for it to be there. I appreciate your efforts!
