Bio and Links
I am adopted and have an extra set of family members because of that. One of the better family genealogy stories I have involves Find-A-Grave. I was looking for my natural Grand-Father's grave, but the name as spelled on my Grand-Mothers Grave was one letter different than the one on his grave. Though separated, in marriage and burial, you would think Husband and Wife would have used the same spelling. (Brenneke and Brennecke)... Searching I had found what I thought was his birth records with the same spelling as my Grandmothers. I found out the town where he was buried and went there and the city was in charge of the Cemetery. The lady at the city gave me the location info and asked if I would like to see his picture. The picture was on Find-A-Grave, but was my Great-Grandfather. ... He, his wife and other children were buried there too. That information confirmed the birth records I had for my Grand-Father.
I am just trying to preserve history and help other people out finding their families resting places and information.

Kevin,

Thank you so much for taking the photo of the grave of my aunt, Ima Powers Pate. My husband and I looked for her grave marker, but never found it. The cemetery was so grown up at the time and we did not know where her grave was located.

We live in Louisiana and it is hard to make that trip.

Thanks again!
