|When I began searching for relatives it started with a few long lost cousins and a half brother. Once I found them, I was already connecting to a larger tree with branches which extend all over the place. What I thought would be a few months worth of work on this project has now become almost 10 years; 7 of them at Find A Grave. I simply wanted to trace roots and understand the background of my family which now has led me to connect to such wonderful people who are doing the same. This is an ongoing project and family puzzle being reconstructed piece by piece. I realize I could not do it without the fine people at FindAGrave and those who utilize this site to register graves aiming for accuracy when it's all to easy too find errors and oversights by those maintaining our ancestors. We all make mistakes & we try our best to hone our skills so we can learn to recognize & correct errors. |
A few years back I would never have realized how excited one can get when opening an email to discover photos of tombstones of ancestors & records which often have information that adds some personality to our kinfolk! Even better is finding that distant relatives have actual photographs never before seen. Without having a site such as this along with Ancestry.com and Fold3.com, www.familysearch.org, would one ever imagine connecting with close & distant relatives or volunteers with sources for further documentation of our kinfolks. This is a great networking effort by all who have been bitten by the genealogy bug.
Thanks to all of you who have contributed and continue to help advance my never ending story.

I am the great grandson of Archibald Perryman Mitchell. My grandfather was the youngest son Tollie. I am trying to retrace our family history back as far as I can, just starting on the Mitchell sideso it is very interesting

I just sent you the links to Ethel's parents. I have several obits of them that I'd be willing to send as well, if you wanted them. They, of course, reference Ethel Biggs as a surviving daughter, along with a number of other siblings of her.

Thank you for this wonderful photo of John Davis Morgan and his children from Martha and Stella (Find A Grave Memorial# 41381470). He was my 3rd cousin 3x removed. I was adopted & am still looking for my birth Father. John Davis Morgan's line comes from my birth Mother (Herring) who I found in 2011. It is terrific to see these people!

Hi Barbara, she was a half-sister to my grandmother, Martha Moore Hunt, Find A Grave Memorial# 63389670. Her dad was my great-grandfather. I remember her when we both lived in Gadsden, AL. Just wondered how you are related.
You can email me at email@example.com
|Debbie Clardy||Sadie Henslee|
I just wanted to let you know I made the changes you sent for Sadie Henslee. Thank you for your contributions!
Just letting you know that Odell Brown is in Elm Spring cemetery in an unmarked grave, location unknown. His name is on some 'old' cemetery papers.
Hope this helps.

My wife is a Hopkins on her father's side. Several of these relatives had this picture or a copy of it. Originally, I don't know who owned it.
I am a descendant of the Barnes family in Wayne Co, KY as well, so believe we are distant cousins. I would love to connect! My great grandmother was Etta C Barnes, daughter of James M and Margaret J Pratt.
I am on Ancestry.com, Findagrave, or you can email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
