I've been researching my family tree for many many years now. I grew up in Memphis but haven't lived there in over 35 yrs., did some yrs. in Texas, have lived outside Nashville for 21 yrs. now. |
I found this site in order to help me in my family tree research, it's been a great tool and in some ways, a nightmare...
I only do memorials for my family tree, my hubby's whose tree I research for he's not into genealogy and also my x's tree for our children together, ditto for him.
I want everyone out there to know that if I have a photo put on any memorial whether I manage the memorial or not then it is yours to share. I will not be so very selfish that I think I own the photos from my family trees, they belong to me and all who are kin to me. We are a HUGE mix of our past ancestors and back after the Civil War many families scattered thru out the US looking for jobs and a place to settle. This happened big time to we people in the South for so much was taken from we Southerners during the Civil War such as land that had been in our families for generations. I don't know if many of you do family tree research, seems many are just into listing where people are buried, but that's a dead body and that person had a history. I think it's wonderful of you who are willing to make these memorials for many would not get listed otherwise so God Bless you. But I want my family tree listings, if you aren't of my family tree then they don't belong to you, they belong to me and those of my tree who are researching too. I'm into their life before their death and many photos were taken by the eldest children of the families when they moved out West or up North or further South and lost to many of the younger children who had no copies of photos, documents, etc. This is why when you go to Antique shops or Flea Mkts. you find so many old photos, because estates were settled by people who didn't give a hoot that there was a history to their family. So there was nothing much passed down in many family trees past the Civil War era. I am so absolutely thrilled when I find a photo from a cousin or some kin of a past ancestor whether they are in my direct lines or not. So all of you out there who are taking photos of grave markers or putting a photo on a memorial page on here should be thrilled to share your photos. It's so very, very selfish of you not to be willing to share the photos you take and also transfer memorials to those whose family they belong whether they're direct family members or not...

Yes your are right. I got it off a list that was posted on the board that has the Malone Cemetery name on it. I have a bunch of Mitchell's in there including my great uncle Issac R "Peg Leg Ike" Mitchell that lost his leg the civil war at Gettysburg, PA.
I will be transferring both these memorials to you as you do have Bolin in your tree and I don't know who these people were and I think you could probably do more with these memorials than I could.
I am getting too old to maintain all I have and don't know what will happen to them when I pass on as no one in my family seems to be interested enough to maintain them.
Hope that is okay with you if not just transfer them back to me and that will be okay too.
Again thanks for the information. Hope I got everything right.
