|Bio and Links|
My name is Becky and I'm a friend to all animals and most people. I'm an American, a Montanan, a 911 Dispatcher, an EMT, a writer, a Republican, an aviation and maritime enthusiast, a firearms enthusiast, genealogist, a pianist, an aspiring violinist, and a frustrated Raiders fan. |
I have an affinity for lighthouses, airplanes and most shades of purple. I was born in Utah, reared in Montana, and consider myself a Michigander at heart. My favorite states are Montana, Michigan, and Maryland. But, I haven't been to Hawai'i yet!
I believe in God the Eternal Father and in His son, Jesus Christ, and in the Holy Ghost.
I love my country and am PROUD to be an American. I support our military. I thank our veterans and those of our allies. We owe them so much. Thank you seems so small a gesture for those who have given so much so that we could be and stay free.
I am a proud missionary aunt to Greg serving in Arizona. Also, pseudo-aunt, I guess, to Joe, a member of my local congregation, serving in California and Josie, a former member of my congregation serving in Mexico. I hope to follow their example someday.
There are so many people that I have a deep respect for. My parents, Walter Maurice Warner and Mildred Elnora (Nash) Warner, and my sister, Brenda Lee Warner, are among them. I suppose my favorite person ever would be my Grandma, Mary Etta (Bradley) Nash.
My ancestry includes Mi'kmaq, French, Irish, English, Scottish, French Canadian, Acadian, and others we haven't confirmed yet.
My roots run deep in Michigan, Utah, Georgia, New York, New Jersey, Virginia, Tennessee, South Carolina, Nova Scotia and Quebec.
I have been adding burials from many Southwest Montana cemeteries. I have added burials from the Montana state orphanage at Twin Bridges and the state Children's Home and Hospital in Helena. I have this listed in my virtual cemeteries.
I do this because I believe that every person/being is important and deserves to be remembered. And, if just one person finds a long-lost relative or friend from my efforts, my time has been worth it.
One of my favorite TV shows as a child was The Waltons. In a guest appearance as Martha Corinne Walton, Beulah Bondi said it best, "Neglected graves are a shameful thing." I have seen some very neglected cemeteries. But, neglected veterans' graves upset me the most. I don't believe in "non-perpetual care." I want to make something clear. When I say that neglected graves are shameful, I am talking about physical neglect-- strewn with rubbish, overgrowth, gopher holes, etc. I do not in any way mean that a grave is neglected if loved ones are unable to visit it often. Why anyone would think that is beyond me, but I've gotten enough emails that I felt the need to explain that.
For reasons I don't always understand, some people are offended to find their loved ones listed on a genealogical website. Obviously, they are not genealogists themselves. While I may not always understand their feelings, I do respect them. If a record I've added is of your loved one and you want it removed, let me know POLITELY (unlike one dolt who threatened to kill me and erroneously thought that I didn't have access to enough information about him through a single e-mail to file charges) and I will gladly remove it. I am also happy to transfer ownership to relatives. Also, feel free to use any of the headstone photos I've added for non-commercial genealogical purposes.

|Tony Lamb||Transfer of Shields Memorials|
Good morning! I am writing to ask that you transfer memorial numbers 21796581 (Owen Shields) and 21796557 (Annie Shields) over to me. I am Owen and Annie's grandson. A few years ago in December 2011 you transferred my father, Lloyd Lamb's, memorial to me. Since then, I have added a lot of information about him to his memorial. Thank you so much for you help with this transfer, and have a very happy and safe Labor Day. Tony
|None to be forgotten||Amanda Coe|
I have been inputting records for Woodlawn Cemetery in Winona, Minnesota. Another member emailed me today about Amanda Coe. I see you have her in Saratoga Cemetery but I have her in Woodlawn Cemetery! The dates are virtually the same: died in 1923 (the same on both); born in 1848 (on yours) and 1850 (on mine). My records are directly from the cemetery so what now? May I ask where you got your information? The two memorial numbers are: 134829642 (Woodlawn) and 78285111 (Saratoga). My personal email is: email@example.com. I enter Find A Grave under "None to be Forgotten".

|Justine Eidt Tobin||Transfer request - Ella Sites|
Hello again -
I am grateful for all that you have done for my family.
I am simply astounded that you found Ella Sites. We thought that she was lost to us forever. Ella married my husband's great grandfather, James E. Sites, a Montana pioneer. She died shortly thereafter, we assume in childbirth. James married Ella's sister, who was a divorcee (!!) from Detroit, who, we assume, came out to help bury her sister. They raised a family, including my husband's paternal grandmother, Blanche Hannah Sites Tobin. We actually have Ella's bible, given to her by her mother. One of our most treasured possessions.
I would like to respectfully request the transfer of Ella Grindley Sites (30403758) to my management. And is are willing to share any stories about how you found Ella, I would love to hear them. The cemetery seems so desolate! My email address is firstname.lastname@example.org
