I am retired in Boise, Idaho. I have loved spending time in cemeteries since I was a little girl. Helping people by exploring cemeteries and photographing grave markers for them is a dream retirement activity for me.
I walk the rows taking random photos when I am in a cemetery, and add the photos or the entire memorial to Findagrave if they are not in. I particularly concentrate on veterans (and their spouses), infants and children. I feel the veterans have earned the right to go to the front of the line. And I feel that since the babies and the children got so little on earth, at least I can give them some electronic "life".
I am always happy to add any information to a memorial I manage. Just send it. I am also delighted to add obituaries; just make sure that I have the correct attribution to add so the paper's copyright is respected.
If you find any errors of fact, date, relationship, or spelling on any of my memorials, please let me know. As a former professional proofreader, I KNOW that no one is perfect all the time, including me. I will fix it.
I will transfer management of memorials in line with the Findagrave guidelines, which specify relatives in a direct line. Specifically, they say: "Transfer requests should be for direct relatives within four generations. This would be your siblings, parents, grandparents, great-grandparents, children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren. Any non-direct relatives (aunts, uncles, cousins, etc) are not required to be transferred." Please do not ask.
Clarernce Gibbens Sue you sent me an Edit for Clarence with no change. Was there something that needed to be corrected? I will go ahead and correct to clear the edit. If there is something I need to correct just resend. Thank you
Matthew and Hettie Anderson Hi Sue Ann, They are my GGG grandparents. Thank you for putting info regarding them. They are at Star Cemetery. I am going to Boise this summer and am interested in putting a small marker on their graves. Do you know who I could contact at the cemetery? I live in Calif. and will only be there 2 days. Would appreciate any help. Matthew and Hettie went to Idaho from Ark. by oxen wagon in 1876. Matthew must have die between 1876 and 1880 because he is not on the census and she is. She died in 1905. I have her obit. They are the grandparents of Nick Villeneuve, the cartoonist from Boise. Dixie
