Bio and Links
i have always been interested in where my family on all sides of my tree came from. i knew that part of it was German and another part Irish. but since i started researching 3 weeks ago i now have over a thousand members in my tree. and three more countries to look at. because of another member on this site who is a direct relative. i got my first pictures of my fathers grandfather and grandmother and his children. these were pictures that i have never seen as we dont have copies. my children are starting to become interested in this project as well. and this project has brought me a little closer to my father as he is now talking about the things these people did. my sister and cousins have been researching our family much longer than i have. i get so excited when i get a leaf on or a picture from a site like this. it meant so much to my dad when i told him today about this site. he couldn't wait to see the picture of his granddad. now i wish i had listened more when my grandparents talked about our family. it makes it more personal. so get out your notebooks and write that oral history your grandmother and granddad is giving you on your next visit. someday you may want to see who your related to. better yet bring along a tape recorder and a digital camera. make it a personal project to teach your kids listening skills writing photography history spelling skills. the truth is they are from our past and we are their future.

RE: Crystal River African American Cemetery
Elizabeth, Thank you for getting back to me. I plan on visiting the cemetery when I return to visit my cousin in Crystal River. Maybe we can meet at the cemetery. Don't know if you reside in Crystal River. Jim

Crystal River African American Cemetery
Thank you for documenting this cemetery. I would like to sponsor an early death of any person from your Crystal River African-American Cemetery. I see a Mary West who died in 1914. Is there an earlier person who died before 1914 who I can sponsor, I may have missed him or her.

Please let me know.

I visited my cousin in Crystal River two days ago, missed seeing this cemetery, would have loved to see it, maybe on my next visit.

I notice that you left pictures in Scrubgrass Cemetery in Venango County, PA. On memorial number: 108109616, it looks like you added the same picture twice. The pictures are so small that you can not really see them. You might want to remove the duplicate picture.
If you have the original picture, I think I could scan it and get the picture to be bigger. Let me know if you would like me to do that.

Hello My 4th Cousin Elizabeth!
I am pretty slow on the uptake, but I finally put an email with a name..."Hello my 4th Cousin Elizabeth!"

Here's hoping our kids (and their kids, too) enjoy our research into the Shaner Family Ancestry!
