Bio and Links
Bio Photo I have been interested in genealogy since the early 1980s. My paternal grandmother gave me her information on the family lines and encouraged me to keep up with the family - which I have. She would have been so excited to find the many family that I have been able to find via the internet and all its availability.
I am a member of the Grady County Historical Society, and was one of the editors of the "Cemeteries of Grady County, Georgia", compiled in 2006. Having been a member of the Society since 2000, I have served as President, Vice President, Secretary and an area representative for the Spence Community.
I am also a member of the Mitchell County Genealogy Society, beginning a project of adding information and photos to Find A Grave site of Mitchell County Cemeteries.
I am gathered information and pictures and compiled a book on the history of the Spence community of Grady County - including its people, businesses, schools, and churches. I AM PUBLISHED AS OF NOVEMBER 2014 - "A Look At Times Past In Spence, Georgia"

Re: Imogene Ansley
Donna, I had declined your request to remove the places of birth and death and explained her obituary showed she was born in Moultrie and died in Thomasville. Yet is is still on, requesting to show unknown locations. Do you want to show they are unknown, although the info is valid? I will be glad to transfer her to you and you can add, what ever you would like. Just let me know. Thanks, Winnette

Thank you for trying to get a photo. I have shown that this is an unmarked grave. At least we know who she is and she can always be found.

Thanks again,

Re: Shirley Carroll
I have never had this situation before, there was no way for me to know that she had been buried. But, I did transfer her over to the cemetery, but, since I didn't have it in the right place, you get the prize I guess.
