PLEASE DO NOT COPY MY PHOTOGRAPHS AND POST THEM TO ANY OTHER SITES. THIS IS A VIOLATION OF MY COPYRIGHT!|
Born 1959. Married, 6 children. Love history, cemetery art and gardening. I have been doing genealogy for 30+ years.
I am a historian. I document an event for future generations. I am not a "hawk" or a "vulture". I do not get paid for this, I do not gain anything from this. I do not wish to disrupt your grieving process. I do not do this to disrespect anyone.
I believe that after 3 or 4 generations, everyone is basically forgotten. Our graves sit there deteriorating without a care. I especially feel for childless couples or infants and children, they are forgotten sooner. I love this website, because generation after generation, our future family will be able to come here, and see our graves, and with a little love and care can see our faces also. Tracing our lineage will be so much easier for future generations.
I will post obits on memorials with proper citation. I know some people feel that this info is "private" or "personal" but.... it was PUBLISHED IN THE PAPER FOR ALL THE WORLD TO SEE.
99% of the time this info is invaluable to genealogists. I have had cemeteries tell me they are private property and those interred there want privacy. If someone truly wants privacy, get cremated and scattered over the ocean, don't put up a huge headstone with your name, dates...... Like having a huge billboard up on a highway and you are asked not to look at it or read it........SILLY.
Please, no drama. I report, ignore and block, rude or offensive communications.
I also feel creating memorials for living people is disrespectful. Anyone can find names and dates to enter, but to truly do the job correctly, the names, dates and links should be complete.
My paternal grandparents were Wavie (nee Rench) & Jesse Botkin. She was the first schoolteacher in Atlanta. Jesse ran the store in town. I have a 2006 copy of the cemetery records. I will try to get the transcribed into Find A Grave.
I do my best to post accurately and respectfully.
I am researching my genealogy, surnames: Botkin, Tonelli, Rench, Crutchley, Boggs, Borror, Leach, Studebaker, Mumper, Jones, Houghtling, Terenzoni, Bartoli, Luchini, Ceci, Kieken, Gbur, Davia, Eggert, Horn, Inman, Spadaro, Davis, Hester, Curl, Shepperd, Maury, Sasser, Humfleet, Sprinkel, Allen, Clark, Brown, Gilbert, Read/Reed, Weber, Hauser, Davies, Dyerhin, Hainlein, Bomher, Fitzpatrick, Halper, O'Connor, Keevil, Cunningham, just to name a few.

Hi Rita. I was able to fulfill some of your photo requests. One was for Frederick Rench 82265599 however the stone at the site says Roderick. I expect this was a transcription error when the records were out online. I have asked the manager to change the name.

If you have cemetery records can you search out Julia Cooper (Keene) Gray (c.1834- aft.1860).
She was my kinswoman, the 2nd wife of John P Gray (1823-1915), and the mother of
1) Keene Presley Gray (1859–1949)
2) Julia Ann Gray Forrest (1863–1952),w/o John Wallace Forrest (1857–1894)
All of her family are buried in the Atlanta Cemetery, but I can't find her.
By the way, I like your bio.

Rita, thank you for adding obits with your memorials that tell others who they might contact to find out more about that person.
I have contacted many "cousins" who were so happy to find others that are from the same family and we have all learned something from each others branch of the family.
It is a very rewarding thing that you do.
Keep up the good work!
