"When I go to a cemetery, I don't just see tombstones. I see families there. I see history there. I see much more than just a stone..."|
I've been working on genealogy for about 20 years now. I stumbled upon this site and so impressed with the idea that I decided to volunteer and add graves as I ran across them. It saddens me to see the state of some of the graveyards I've visited, but I feel like I'm helping save part of history by photographing the stones that are still there. If I can be of any help just let me know.
"Genealogy is the art of collecting tidbits of the lives of those who came before us. And a genealogist sorts, organizes and nurtures this info for the purpose of paying it forward to a future generation's hands. The bucket is in our hands now, for a moment it's "ours", but the rest of the brigade is waiting for that pail of water to be passed to the next soul." Gerblady
if you would like a transfer of a memorial, please use the "edit" button on the memorial and state your relationship. I will gladly transfer memorials within 4 direct generations. Others I will be happy to consider. :-)

|Cousin||RE: Ham memorials|
Many thanks for the good information! Actually I'm the owner of Zoe Ham Reeves's grave in Park Cemetery, Greenfield, and in touch with my 90-year-old cousin whose mother Guinevere Ham Ostrander is buried in Crown Hill, Indianapolis, so I should be able to figure out how to do that--maybe!

Sorry, I don't quite understand. I thought I left a message about adding the eldest and youngest daughters of George Washington Ham and Adelaide Titus Ham to THEIR memorials. I've just left another one on GWHam's that I hope will make it clear. Their eldest daughter was my grandmother, and her husband wrote their obituaries. Thanks so much for your help.

Hi! I need the burial Section and Lot Numbers in order to take a photograph for you. This cemetery's staff does not help photo volunteers, and the burial location is not available anywhere else.
Last year I fulfilled over 450 photo requests at this cemetery after the burial location was provided.

Thank you. I'd like to add a message about his grandparents, George Washington Ham and Adelaide Titus Ham. The list of their children omits the names of their eldest and youngest daughters--my grandmother and the mother of their only living grandchild. They are Zora Emma Ham Reeves (1870-1934) and Guinevere Ham Ostrander (1890-1967). If you can get them added to the list, I'll be most grateful, as I don't see a way to do that.
