Bio and Links
Bio Photo Please visit my new website, Peninsula Genealogy, if you have ties to the Hampton Roads area. I'm documenting obituaries, marriage, birth and death records there, and linking all obits back to findagrave so people can see additional info on their loved ones.

I have been doing my genealogy for over 13 years now. I started visiting the local cemeteries in my area looking for my relatives. By doing that, I realized how much I like to go there and how I enjoy helping others find their relatives. I am willing to do cemetery lookups in my area (Hampton, VA), so email me if need some help. Will also look up obituaries at our local library. I just love to do research!

I am currently transcribing and posting pics of cemeteries around Hampton VA. I have completed most of the smaller cemeteries (less than 1000 graves) and a few larger ones. I'm hoping by doing all this, it will make it easier for many people to find their loved ones.

My maternal grandfathers family was from MA (Mackay, Martin, McGlew, Traill)

My maternal grandmothers family was from VA, NC and PA (Gildner, Broadstreet, May, Bridgland, Smith, Arnold).

My paternal grandfathers family was from WY, NE, WI and SD (Allman, Caddy, Simons, Carberry, Rogers, Stuart)

My paternal grandmothers family was from CA, Washington, DC and OH. (Ehrmantraut, White, Gerhold, Dolph).

My husbands family is from NC and SC. (Orr, Malone, Boone, Clement, Mckay, Stewart, Vaughan Garrett, Hatchell).

RE: edits tab
Thank you Dawn. I noticed some things were different with the new update, but I didn't know I had an edit tab. Thanks!

RE: edits tab
Hey Dawn, I had no idea I will go find it and fix things I haven't been on findagrave too often so I guess I missed it. Thanks

RE: edits tab

I am aware of the new feature. I have used it. The approval comes from Find A Grave. I don't like that because we don't know of the changes. I would like to know what the correction are so I can change my records.

Thanks much,

I went to Oakdale Cemetery to try to fulfill some photo requests. I have a copy of the cemetery book which makes it easier to locate most graves. However many stones are either missing or ineligible. I found the stone and I know you want a photo that shows the engraving. However really the only readable thing on the stone is the name. I will usually write under a photo I take what is written on the stone if it is not easily readable but wanted you to know it is truly unreadable. And don't think anyone will get a better photo than what is already on the memorial. Sorry.
